As a consequence of access, technology and higher prices, the resource development picture in North America has been undergoing remarkable changes. The shale gas “revolution” has been widely publicized, but Canada and the United States also possess several world-class oil basins, including significant areas of prospective new growth in the Bakken, EagleFord, Niobrara and elsewhere.
The staggering growth in production from the Bakken has catapulted North Dakota into the top tier of oil producing states in the lower 48 and the promise of additional Bakken–like structures paint a far rosier picture for US output going forward. Of course, realization of this vision requires the prudent and environmentally responsible development of these enormous resources and also requires the installation of scalable infrastructure, thoughtful policies, effective regulation and management of the attendant “above ground” issues.
The CSIS Energy and National Security Program will convene a group of experts to discuss the resource and production potential of these plays as well as many of the key infrastructure and local/regional impact challenges that must be addressed to make this promise a reality. Topics for discussion include: resource and production outlook, the NPC white paper, infrastructure and transportation, local impacts, concerns and policies, and tight oil development beyond the Bakken.
