The Permian Is Facing A New Pipeline Problem

Pipeline

1. The Permian pipeline glut

- The Permian basin is producing a little over 4.1 mb/d, but has 3 mb/d of excess pipeline capacity.

- Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE: EPD) canceled its 450,000-bpd Permian pipeline this month. “In the medium-term, we don’t need it, and they don’t need it,” the company’s chief executive said.

2. Falling costs for batteries

- For a long time, the $100 per kWh price point for battery packs has been held up as a key threshold needed to make electric vehicles equal on price with the internal combustion engine.

- That goal is now very close to becoming a reality. In March, LG Chem said it might hit that point soon.

- As of 2019, the average lithium-ion battery pack costs $156/kWh. BloombergNEF sees that falling to $131/kWh this year. The $100/kWh threshold could be reached industry-wide by 2023-2024.
