Excerpted from the Introduction:
Although a general relationship exists between employment and production, the most prominent factors are price per production unit and the market for these products. The key variables examined in this report are reserves and decline rates, drilling activity related to both price and markets and production. The estimates are based on a delphi approach using the expertise of producers in the major fields of the state. As with all projections, the shorter term outlooks may present a more realistic view of the oil and gas Industry future in the state.
