Bakken Shale in the United States (US) - Oil and Gas Shale Market Analysis and Outlook to 2022, 2020 Update

The Bakken Shale play is the second largest oil producing region in the US behind the Permian Basin. In 2019, it averaged over 1.4 million barrels of oil per day (mmbd) which made up almost 17% of the total United States oil production. This region witnessed an increase in production and activity since 2016, but will suffer a substantial drop in production in 2020. The price drop due to the COVID-19 pandemic has shaken up activity in the Bakken region. The main drivers in the decrease in production have been the shutting in of producing wells and the decrease in drilling activity in this region.

The largest oil producer in the Bakken, Continental Resources reportedly shut in majority of their wells given the circumstance that they have 0% of their production hedged going into 2020.However, the recent rebound in oil prices has given some operators the confidence to bring back some of the wells that were shut in previously, therefore leading to a marginal increase in production in June and July.

Such occurrence is expected to offset the decline in legacy production and the fall in rig activity, keeping Bakken forecast to remain above 1 mmbd throughout 2020.
