Great graph from Rystad today showing how productivity improvements are driving a reduction in tight oil and offshore. I do however think it worth noting that this is a productivity driven cost reduction whereas in offshore it would appear that much of the cost reduction simply reflects equity that has been wiped out and contractors supplying assets at OpEx levels or below. My thoughts on Baumol productivity remain valid.
It is interesting though that offshore deepwater costs seem to move in a linear fashion with demand, as does offshore midwater. The reasons for the decline in offshore shelf breakeven costs would be interesting to explore.
