Oil Price Crash Leads To Large Drop In U.S. Fixed Investment
The drastic spending cuts across the U.S. shale patch due to the low oil prices will likely lead to a 6.1-percentage point slump in total U.S. business fixed investments in the second quarter, Dallas Fed economists said in a new analysis this week.
Over the past decade, oil and gas sector investments have grown as a share of total U.S. nonresidential business fixed investments, thanks to the shale boom. In the 2010s, U.S. oil firms spent a total of $1.2 trillion on drilling and completing wells, boosting U.S. crude oil production by almost 140 percent in the past decade. The share of the oil and gas industry’s investment of U.S. nonresidential business fixed investment – an important component of the country’s GDP – averaged 6.4 percent, double for the share in the previous decade, the Dallas Fed noted.
Even before the oil price collapse in early March, some U.S. oil firms had started to reduce planned investments for 2020 by 10-20 percent, abandoning the ‘production growth at all costs’ strategy as investors de
manded returns and profits.
But after prices collapsed to multi-year lows with the crash in demand from the pandemic along with the Saudi
oil price war, the U.S. shale patch was very quick to pull back investment and drilling activity.
Due to the oil price crash, the global glut, and lack of storage, U.S. oil firms are announcing production curta
ilments by the day.
