A rising tide of water management issues is headed for the Permian oil patch as the basin continues to dominate industry activity. The average Permian Basin well currently requires between 500,000 and 700,000 barrels of water — more than 21 million gallons — to be hydraulically fractured. And that amount is expected to climb as operators drill longer laterals and use bigger fracturing jobs to complete their wells. Water demand is forecast to be 100 billion gallons a day by 2020.
By all measures, the Permian Basin’s oil and gas industry is on the rise. The Texas Permian Basin Petroleum Index, on the rise since October 2016, was up 23.6 percent in August from August 2016 levels, fueled by higher commodity prices and oil field activity, according to Karr Ingham, the Amarillo economist who prepares the index.
Port is working to expand its ability to export Permian crude overseasPermian operators have long been exporting their expertise and technology to oil basins around the globe. Now, after 40 years, they’re increasingly exporting their crude as well. Since the 40-year-old ban on exporting U.S. crude was lifted at the end of 2015, exports have risen to an average 800,000 barrels a day, largely to Asia, Europe and South America. Much of that crude comes from the Permian.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
