阿拉斯加今年6月份日产量下降1.9万桶，鉴于BP最近决定出售其在该州的资产并退出，这一点值得注意。 在二叠纪等地，阿拉斯加的盈亏平衡成本高于美国页岩。根据标准普尔全球普氏能源资讯（S＆P Global Platts）的数据，在阿拉斯加境内，布伦特原油价格每桶55美元（离岸价格为65美元），而美国页岩油的大致盈亏平衡价为每桶45美元。阿拉斯加的产量一直在长期下降，因此最新的数据与这一下降趋势是一致的(尽管产出可能会继续逐月波动)。

Oil Production Growth In U.S. Grinds T o A Halt
Lower oil prices and ongoing financial stress in the U.S. shale industry are creating headwinds for drillers, and it appears increasingly likely that supply growth could undershoot forecasts.
U.S. oil production fell in June to 12.082 million barrels per day (mb/d), according to new data released by the EIA on Friday. That is a decline of 33,000 bpd from May – not a huge drop off, but a decline nonetheless.
In previous months, maintenance at offshore oil fields made up a big chunk of the declines. While the overall figures for the entire U.S. appeared to disappoint, temporary declines offshore masked ongoing growth in the Permian. But this time around, blame cannot simply be pinned on offshore maintenance.
Remarkably, production in Oklahoma fell by a rather substantial 58,000 bpd, a sign of problems in Oklahoma’s SCOOP and STACK plays, which have proved to be somewhat of a disappointment.
Anecdotally, companies have said that they were pivoting away from Oklahoma’s shale because of higher-than-expected costs and lower-than-expected production volumes. The latest EIA data suggests that lower investment in Oklahoma could be taking a toll.
Alaska also lost 19,000 bpd in June, which is noteworthy in light of BP’s recent decision to sell off its assets in the state and withdraw. Alaska has higher breakeven costs than U.S. shale in places like the Permian. According to S&P Global Platts, onshore Alaska breaks even with Brent at $55 per barrel (and $65 offshore), while a ballpark breakeven price for U.S. shale is $45 per barrel. Alaska’s output has been in long-term decline so the latest figures are consistent with that downward trend (although output will likely continue to seesaw month-to-month).
