Interesting article, that ignores several points, and appears to obfuscate on others.

The EIA claimed to be overly optimistic isn't also mentioned as the one that was overly PESSIMISTIC previously, so based on past conservative principles, it would seem that understanding their past behavior is important, if only to explain why you conveniently avoid the point. Also, while sweet spot development is certainly of a priority to all operators in the Bakken and Eagle Ford, that isn't where the current growth is coming from, and development in the Midland and Delaware basins within the Wolf camp looks to be as substantial and prolific as either the Bakken or Eagle Ford. Or both.

Lest we forget, another CEO just this past November blasted the EIA in the press over their high estimates. Harold Hamm being that person. And those estimates of the EIA? Turned out to be low. Again, they keep getting it wrong on the LOW side.

And, again, as prodigious as the oil output is, the gas production will simply blow people away.

Associated gas barely registers for most operators seeking oil.
Texas and Oklahoma production is rich in both NGLs and methane.

2018 will see Appalachian Basin numbers to write home about.

Define “energy producing superpower”:

1) A country that produces just enough energy to satisfy its needs
2) A country that produces enough energy to satisfy its needs and exports the surplus
3) A country that produces more then most countries but still needs to import energy to meet its needs.
4) A country that produces more than most countries but still needs to import energy to meet its needs. A country that also spent $trillions of taxes and thousands of the lives of its military unsuccessfully trying to stabilize oil exporting regions.
5) A country that produces more than most countries but still needs to import energy to meet its needs. A country that also spent $trillions of taxes and thousands of the lives of its military unsuccessfully trying to stabilize oil exporting regions. A country with politicians and “experts” trying to convince the public it will soon shift to Category 1 and perhaps even if Category 2.

A brainless propaganda slogan to make all the sheeple feel warm and fuzzy about how things are going.

In December, U.S. net petroleum and petroleum product imports fell to the lowest level on record. On the current trajectory, they could fall to zero in 2020.

The overall balance between U.S. imports and exports of both crude oil and finished products fell to 2.6 million BPD in December. That is the lowest level since the EIA began tracking this category in 1973:
U.S. Net Imports of Crude Oil and Petroleum Products

Last fall the International Energy Agency declared in its World Energy Outlook 2017 that the U.S. could be a net exporter of oil within a decade. On the current trajectory, net imports could indeed turn into net exports in 2020.
