Guide To Oil And Gas Plays In North America: Conclusion

In summary, it is difficult to keep up with all of the shale plays in the Lower 48. Many of the natural gas plays listed are not commercial and will probably be held until a higher price can be garnered. Liquids-based production will be emphasized, so look to the Eagle Ford, Bakken, Permian, Niobrara and Woodford plays to outperform in the near term. Smaller companies with acreages should outperform as these assets are bought by larger companies looking for growth.
