  • Three Ways to Profit From Colorado Oil

    By Robert Zimmerman - July 29, 2013 | Tickers: APC, EPD, NBL

    While the Bakken and Eagle Ford shale oil plays understandably attract the spotlight in the world of new oil production, a lesser known play in Colorado may soon make its presence felt. The Niobrara in northeastern Colorado (see map below) may contain more than 7 billion barrels of recoverable oil. Let’s look at three companies investing in this play.

  • Is it Too Late for US LNG Exports?

    By Robert Zimmerman - July 23, 2013 | Tickers: APC, CQP, LNG, DGRLY, NBL

    This past May, the Department of Energy granted Freeport LNG (a private company) license to export liquefied natural gas, or LNG, to foreign countries--foreign countries that do not have a free trade agreement with the United States that is. Thus, Freeport joins Cheniere Energy (NYSEMKT: LNG) as a LNG exporter. This decision presages more export licenses to be issued to US companies. Given the foreign competition already in place, will more »

  • This Company Is Set to Skyrocket

    By Piyush Arora - July 22, 2013 | Tickers: APC, E, NBL

    When it comes to the oil and gas sector, it's hard to find value plays. The task becomes daunting when we start scouting for large cap companies. While some companies are shifting to high margin projects, others are shedding assets to focus on their core competencies. But as a rare find, Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE: APC) appears to have all the ingredients of a perfect value play.

  • Increasing Production From These Oil and Gas Producers Could Produce Returns for You

    By Madhukar Dubey - July 9, 2013 | Tickers: MRO, NBL, PXD

    The Energy Information Administration, in its most recent outlook, said that it expects global oil demand to grow by 0.9 million and 1.2 million barrels per day in 2013 and 2014 respectively.

  • Which Large-Cap Domestic E&P Play Should You Bet On?

    By Federico Zaldua - May 27, 2013 | Tickers: APC, MUR, NBL

    I am currently conducting a broad study of the US oil industry from small- capitalization refiners to large-capitalization integrated-oil companies. The shale revolution has added to the industry a dynamism that it has not had since the 20th century started. The US will become one of the world's biggest gas exporters and an energy powerhouse. Here I present three great exploration and production (E&P) companies. Let's see more »

  • 3 Companies Making Putin Pout

    By Robert Zimmerman - May 7, 2013 | Tickers: APC, GLOG, NBL

    The Russian economy depends on its energy exports. While President Vladimir Putin publicly claims his country “only” derives 50% of its revenues from oil and natural gas exports, others put that number as high as 80%. Additionally, by some estimates, Russia needs its Ural oil to sell at $150/bbl to finance an ambitious plan of domestic spending. Right now, Ural oil sells for around $112/bbl.

  • Will Natural Gas Blow Up the Middle East?

    By Robert Zimmerman - May 3, 2013 | Tickers: DGRLY, DKL, DK, NBL, WOPEY

    As if the Middle East doesn't already have enough friction, another hissyfit seems to be evolving there. Off the coast of Israel, several natural gas fields have been discovered with enough gas to make Israel an energy exporter. Instead of relying on Egypt for a significant portion of its gas needs, Israel could tell the Muslim Brotherhood what to do with their gas and go it alone.

  • Is This Energy Stock Inflated With Value or Thin Air?

    By Nathan Kirykos - April 4, 2013 | Tickers: ERF, NBL, OAS, SYRG

    While looking for the next hot Basin in the U.S., nobody can afford to overlook the Denver-Julesburg (DJ) Basin that hosts the emerging Niobrara shale. Although the large caps attract most of the attention, in any play there are unheralded companies that are worth researching as they may be overvalued, undervalued, or potential buyout targets.

  • Natural Gas, Hail to the Russians, for Cyprus and US

    By Christopher Sinnott - March 20, 2013 | Tickers: CHK, FSYS, NBL

    Is Nat Gas really profitable and if so, when?  

    Will the Russians double down their wager on Cyprus’ natural gas stake to help save their economy?  

    With Cyprus estimating newly found gas reserves off the coast reportedly worth close to $400 billion, will that value be enough to entice the Russians interest without a strong demand for the commodity itself.
