XI Technologies: Drilling Top Tens for the First Half of 2019 – Gas & Oil Companies, New Top Producing Wells & More


WEDNESDAY'S WORD - top Banner

Each week, XI Technologies scans their unique combination of enhanced industry data to provide trends and insights that have value for professionals doing business in the WCSB. If you’d like to receive our Wednesday Word to the Wise in your inbox, subscribe here.

Drilling activity in the WCSB has been significantly lower these past few years, but that doesn’t mean no one is drilling. Active drillers are being strategic, doing everything in their power to maximize ROI from their drilling programs, and achieving commendable results. Canadian E&P companies are continually at the forefront of developing new, more efficient, cost-effective, and low-impact techniques and technology for resource exploration and exploitation.

One of the ways Canadian E&Ps achieve results is by utilizing innovative drilling research software and data such as XI Technologies’ OffsetAnalyst and TourXchange. Twice a year, XI digs into the most recent results to compile a series of Top Ten lists that showcase the successes of our drilling industry. We believe this is an important reminder that there is a lot of good work being done in the WCSB, and we want to give credit to our Canadian E&P operators.

In our February 26th article, we pooled the data from all of 2018. This time around, we’ve pulled data to show you how the major players have performed in the first half of 2019, and how that compares to the drilling performance that we saw in 2018. If you’d like to compare this with our analysis of the first half of 2018, you can find that in our blog from last October.

Enjoy! If you’d like to find out how you can put this kind of drilling data to work for you, download a case study, or contact us for a quick demo of OffsetAnalyst.
