ShaleWellCube (Shale Well Database) provides users with the most comprehensive and reliable data coverage for the North American shale, oil sands, and conventional well activities. It is a powerful tool that assists users with their own analysis of the historical development of oil and gas activities in a quick and efficient way.

ShaleWellCube covers more than 1,000,000 wells updated on a daily basis. The tool includes a wide range of data, such as monthly oil and gas production as well as water and estimated NGL volumes, integrated FracFocus disclosure, and well completion details. It also provides users with powerful capabilities to conduct decline curve analysis, monitor pad drilling trends, and get a unique insight into the composition of the fracking fluid and well economics, enabling users to have a complete picture of the North American oil and gas market.

Our analysts continuously collect and verify data from official reports and sources, and update them in the database on a daily basis.

ShaleWellCube comes with a user-friendly graphical interface, Cube Browser, enabling fast filtering, extraction and display of data. Additionally, the database includes Shale Maps with a comprehensive overview of acreage positions for key players in major basins, geological layers for major plays and surface lateral length projections. Data feed delivery options are available for those who prefer to work with the data in other software.

As part of the subscription, users of the database will receive regular Commentaries providing insights into major and emerging shale plays in the US, Canada and Argentina and the News and Revision Report with updates on methodology and summary of significant revisions.
