A healthy old age is more likely. Getting very gassy, as most old men get, and can't jog very long anymore without getting pooped out....
Well productivity would look worse if laterals were normalized for length...
And to the right we can clearly see that as we get older often our decline is not so gradual and steady, that decline rates actually accelerate. Life is like that; shit happens.
The Bakken has had a good long life, getting old is part of the deal. I think this patient has a few more good years in him before he will be worn plum ass out and want to go home and sit in his recliner by the fire.
Then again, I'm not a doctor.
I did stay in a Holiday Inn Express last week.
