Early Findings

Oil and Gas Companies' Drilling Spending Estimates

  • A 2019 report from the Oil & Gas Journal mentioned that upstream oil and gas spending for 2019 will grow by only 2%. This is significantly low compared to the 23% increase in the previous year.
  • Upstream activities include drilling for oil.
  • Based on its 2019 press release, Chevron planned to spend $7.6 billion in upstream activities in the United States.

Summary Of Our Early Findings Relevant To The Goals

  • Our one hour of research provided some of the upstream (including drilling) spending estimates made by U.S. O&G firms last 2019.
