Hess has applied Lean manufacturing techniques in the Bakken to reduce completion costs by one-third over the past 12 months, cut the time it takes to frack a well to one day and boosted average initial well production by up to 20 percent. “The slowdown actually has helped convince people of the need to do everything more efficiently," Hess VP David McKay said.
