Michigan Oil & Gas Monthly – August 2016

Michigan oil & gas activity gets busy in August of 2016. August has more applications for new wells than all seven previous months of 2016 combined. We have an applications for Carbon Dioxide Sequestration, High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing (HVHF), as well as applications to explore the Trenton Group in Lenawee & Monroe Counties. The HVHF well takes us down memory lane and we examine why the Integrated Assessment of HVHF published by the University of Michigan’s Graham Sustainability Institute is a fundamentally flawed report with flawed timing.

Michigan Oil & Gas Production Report January – December 2015

The 2015 full year petroleum production numbers are, according to RMP estimates, 98% reported. That means it’s time to review a whole host of tables and graphs showing you the top hydrocarbon producers in the Michigan Basin for 2015. Check out this annual production summary to see what got produced and where in Michigan. Also, a new feature added to our annual production summary is the estimated revenue generated by operator based on advanced calculations you’ll only find on RMP.

Michigan Oil & Gas Monthly – December 2015

This month in RMP’s Michigan Oil & Gas Monthly (MOGM) we look back on the slowest year ever in Michigan oil & gas activity. 1931 previously held the record for slowest year in Michigan history for oil & gas but no longer. 2015 was the slowest year ever for Michigan oil & gas activity. With drilling activity slow, RMP forecasts spending more time on other aspects of Michigan oil & gas in 2016. RMP will be focusing on underground storage tanks (USTs), secondary recovery operations including CO2 injection and water flooding, and Michigan’s orphan wells. Check out our December MOGM, share it on facebook, and tell your friends to check out our publications.
