"You drill, you move on, you frack [and] you get an inventory building," Precision Dilling (NYSE:PDS) CEO Kevin Neveu says. "The shift to multi-well pads has caused an industrial inventory of uncompleted wells to accumulate. The frackers can't keep up with the need." The Energy Department expects Permian Basin production to rise by 64K bbl/day this month to 2.6M, part of the seven major U.S. shale plays that could pump 6.1M bbl/day, up by 117K bbl/day.
