The Oil Patch At 35,000 Feet

Susan Murphy | Publisher

Looking over the oil patch from 35,000 feet we get the sense that the pipe market is drifting at the moment. In no particular order there’s: the well-recognized onshore shift and transitory pause when moving from one play to another; the lull that’s created as operators redistribute their capital budgets; the ongoing questions about additional domestic pipe capacity; the buildup of OCTG inventories and mounting concerns about imports. A perfect storm of sorts, but will it be one that tips the shales or will all the frac-tivity continue to fuel an energy renaissance? What do you think?
