- One of the main concerns about the Permian is that production is increasingly becoming gassier, that is, the gas-to-oil ratio of the hydrocarbons is leaning in a natural gas direction. While that is certainly true for wells as they age, Rystad said there is less of a concern with new wells.

- “We should stress that we do not expect any significant buildup in the gas-oil ratio (GOR) across the Permian basin in the short term,” Rystad said.

- The GOR would rise if the overall drilling pace slows down, as aging wells would make up a larger share of the total output.

- “[W]e do not think Permian gas production will necessarily outpace oil in 2020 as long as the activity level stays robust and operators intentionally decide to focus on the areas and zones with the maximum oil content,” Rystad said.

2. Palladium prices take a breather
