Permian Basin output growing, but other top shale plays to fall

The Permian is one of the outliers — the only other play expected to grow over the next two months is the Utica in the Appalachian region.
Otis Barnes, left, of Port Arthur, and his daughter, Kay Barnes, of Groves, watch as the 15-story, 8,000-ton hull of the Neptune SeaStar - an oil and gas production platform that Australia-based BHP Billiton, Marathon Oil, Woodside Energy and Repsol will operate - is towed by tugboats down the Port Arthur Ship Canal Saturday morning, May 19, 2007.
BHP Billiton commissioned the rig to be built in June 2005, and that year's hurricanes didn't stop construction. This is one of the few hulls built in the U.S. rather than Finland, Korea or Japan, and the construction provided jobs when the hurricanes wiped out a lot of others for months.
