Looking at the data, we als see that companies have already spent 42% of their full year 2020 budget as of the first quarter.  We expect the second half 2020 to be somewhat brutal for oilfield services and most companies will again talk budget exhausion.  While the average spent is 42%, that is however more skewed towards oil focused E&P vs Gas players.

Gas Basin Growth

  • Marcellus up +1 rig
  • Haynesville up +1 rig
  • Piceance Basin up +1 rig

OIl Basin Reductions

  • Permian down -15
  • Eagleford down -4
  • Bakken down -2
