Oil exploration and production activities promise growth and success; yet underlying operational inefficiencies threaten performance. Onshore operators are coming under increasing market scrutiny and pressure to deliver profitable production. Their traditional responses have been to drill more wells faster and cheaper. However, a growing trend toward a fundamentally different way of operating is emerging—high well-count onshore operations—especially in the unconventional arena. This is a more integrated approach in the management of both capital campaigns and production operations. However, it has not been a priority, which has resulted in significant untapped value being left behind.
