  1. Western Energy Alliance Economic Impact Data: Keeping it Real for Policymakers – the Job and Economic Impacts of Legislation, Lawsuits and Regulation

  2. The Western Energy Alliance Project The Western Energy Alliance hired John Dunham & Associates to perform the following economic analysis: • Pricing Model for Generic Oil and Gas Wells by Development Basin • Economic Impact of Oil and Gas Producers in the 13 Western States • Regulatory Impact Model

  3. The Western Energy Alliance Project • JDA specializes in the development of models and messages to communicate complex economic ideas to policy makers and the public • While these models should not be used to make financial decisions, they demonstrate the “impact” of regulations. • This can help the industry as a whole in its ability to influence and shape the regulatory and tax environment

  4. The Western Energy Alliance Project Examples of How This Analysis is Used: • The American Meat Institute used a very similar model to demonstrate how price controls proposed by GIPSA would cost consumers well in excess of $100 million • The Auto Alliance used a similar model to demonstrate the negative economic effects of CAFE standards across Congressional Districts • DIAGEO has demonstrated the fiscal benefits of reductions in beverage alcohol controls in Connecticut • Verizon used similar models to show how accelerated depreciation generates productivity gains for the economy • Altria, MillerCoors and the WSWA have used these models to document the economic cost of excise tax increase proposals.

  5. Pricing Model for Generic Well • Designed to Calculate out the cost components of a generic oil or gas well– from exploration and leasing to production and distribution to the supply network. • Model is based on data gathered from the US Department of Energy, the Bureau of Economic Analysis, and interviews with dozens of industry professionals • A Revenue model is included that assumes a 20-year well live with an exponential decline in production (nearly all production is in first 4 years) • Currently the model is state driven but will be broken out to reflect specific generic well types (vertical v horizontal) and different production areas (Williston, San Juan, DJ, etc)

  6. Economic Impact Model • The Economic Impact Model analyzes the footprint of the oil and gas production industry in the 13 western states • Based on an industry defined as exploration to pipeline • The model is based on actual employment at company facilities in the states allocated across the region based on the location of the office/facility and the actual location of each producing well. • The model uses standard input/output modeling techniques and the IMPLAN input/output tables for 2010. • Impacts by state and congressional district, and include supplier and induced impacts in every state and DC. • Data are accessed using an interactive web-based “wizard”

  7. Economic Impact Model • The model shows that the industry generates nearly 230,000 jobs all across the country, paying nearly $15.5 billion in wages. • The total economic impact of the industry is over $51billion. • Based on our model, the industry generates over $5.8 billion in business and personal taxes (not including royalties, severance taxes etc.)

  9. Economic Impact Model

  10. Regulatory Impact Model • The power of the first two models will be harnessed through the development of regulatory and tax impact models in the future. • These models will be used to forecast “shocks” to the existing system and calculate economic and cost impacts based on the difference. • For example, taxes, which reduce the demand for products will reduce the well-head price of oil or natural gas. This will limit production. • Changes in production will then be translated into lost jobs, taxes, and economic activity at the national, state and Congressional district level. • These impacts will ricochet throughout the economy – impacting Districts in key states like Ohio or Florida

  11. Regulatory Impact Model BLM Well Completion Rules: • A Bureau of Land Management proposal would require that companies drilling new wells on Federal leaseholds (and those re-stimulating existing wells) submit a plan outlining the details of well completion operations for approval prior to performing them. • The proposed will also require operators to implement a number of costly “solutions” to a perceived problem of contaminated groundwater. • Our estimate is that nearly 5,100 wells currently in the permitting process and about 1,100 wells requiring re-stimulation in the first year following implementation will be impacted.

  13. Regulatory Impact Model • Our estimated costs were significantly higher than the minor administrative costs outlined in the Agency’s preliminary benefit-cost analysis of the regulations: Cost Component Comparison Cost Component Comparison per Well

  14. Next Steps • JDA will complete the economic impact analysis including the addition of payments for government royalties, severance taxes etc. • JDA will include a detailed methodology and summary of the impact analysis. This will be completed within 2 weeks. • JDA will next break down the pricing model to basin specific data. This will allow for a more detailed examination of targeted regulation and cost changes. The new data will be available at the end of Summer 2012
