    By Shweta Dubey - August 4, 2013 | Tickers: CHK, RRC, SWN

    Global oil and gas volume grew 16.3% to 73.8 billion barrels of oil equivalent, or boe, in 2010 and is expected to grow at the rate of 24.4% to reach 91.8 billion boe by 2015.

  • Fracking's Controversial Image Is Your Risk

    By Gretchen Stone - July 31, 2013 | Tickers: COG, CHK, RRC

    Is fracked natural gas sustainable?  Do its public relation risks hinder sound, long-term investing? Companies such as Cabot Oil & Gas (NYSE: COG) and Range Resources (NYSE: RRC) are raking in profits from plays in the Marcellus Shale, but before making a long-term investment, I suggest you consider possible changes in states’ public policies.

    The potential for boom and bust in fracked natural gas is similar to public policy’s effect more »

  • Another Big Texas Oil Play?

    By Robert Zimmerman - July 19, 2013 | Tickers: APA, DVN, RRC

    The great state of Texas already produces approximately 30% of all oil in the United States. Over the past two years there’s been growing buzz about the Cline shale play in the Texas Permian Basin. Specifically, the Cline may hold 30 billion barrels of recoverable oil. In contrast, the Bakken in the Dakotas holds roughly 7.4 billion (at last check) and the Eagle Ford in Texas holds 853 more »

    By James Hartje - July 5, 2013 | Tickers: APC, RRC, UPL

    2013 has been a great year for oil and natural gas stocks with many appreciating double digits. As a result, investors are all looking for ways to capitalize on this market.

  • Range Resources: An Investment in American Energy Independence

    By James Fantaci - May 15, 2013 | Tickers: CLNE, EOG, RRC, WPRT

    The advent of the shale gas revolution is the culmination of advances in the methodology used to detect abundant reserves of Natural Gas and technological leaps in the means to extract it, principally through Horizontal Drilling and Hydraulic Fracturing. When it comes to investing in exploration and production companies, especially those that focus on Natural Gas, investors should pay attention to the cost and yield per well, as well as more »

  • Invest In Nat Gas Or Nat Gas Stocks?

    By Mike Thiessen - May 7, 2013 | Tickers: COG, RRC, UNG

    The price of natural gas has started to rebound since mid-February of 2013. Investors can purchase the United States Natural Gas (NYSEMKT: UNG) ETF as an easy way to trade on the price of natural gas. The sustainability of a recovery in natural gas remains very uncertain. Prices have remained low since late 2009, due to excess supply not a decline in volume demand. Shale fracking resulted in increased supply more »

  • As Natural Gas Inventories Plunge, Investors Should Buy Exploration Stocks

    By Mark Holder - April 29, 2013 | Tickers: CHK, RRC, SWN, WPX

    With natural gas and coal stocks trading at 52-week lows, the market continues to ignore the very bullish natural gas weekly inventory reports. In fact, the reports are now mostly glazed over in the financial media.

    For those that missed the report this week, the weekly inventories rose by 31 Bcf. While less than the 33 Bcf expected gain, the gain is actually significant as the inventory level over the more »

  • 3 Low Cost Natural Gas Producers Poised to Benefit From Higher Gas Prices

    By Robert Zimmerman - March 28, 2013 | Tickers: EQT, EQM, RRC, UPL

    Natural gas prices slowly increased this year, driven by a colder winter and other consumer demands. This reverses the 2012 trend of declining prices. Not surprisingly, drilling activity declined with natural gas prices and then increased as prices rose. With natural gas prices coming off historic lows, which gas producers will benefit first? My bet, the ones paying the lowest production costs. Let’s look at three examples.

  • Be Cautious on the Fracking Boom

    By Bob Chandler - March 8, 2013 | Tickers: CLR, EOG, RRC

    The oil & gas industry has a tendency to go into mini-booms. Often things look very promising and money enthusiastically flows into the space. Unfortunately, in many cases, things don't quite meet expectations and investors suffer. The latest mini-boom in the industry seems to center around "fracking." This extraction technique has certainly increased the accessible amount of U.S. oil and gas, but one might be wary in assuming that more »

  • Will Someone Please Clean Up These Dirty Balance Sheets?

    By Chris Marasco - March 4, 2013 | Tickers: APC, CHK, RRC, UNG, USO

    Despite record-setting low interest rates and banks that are flush with capital, energy firms badly need financed.

    High spending, enormous risk appetite, and “perceived corporate governance lapses” have pushed investors to tone down risk-taking at these companies.  Let’s use Chesapeake (NYSE: CHK) as an example.

    Chesapeake’s talent for producing natural gas – it is the second largest producer in the U.S. – led the firm to seek debt.  That more »

    By Brendan Marasco - January 16, 2013 | Tickers: CHK, XOM, RRC, SWN, UPL | Editor's Choice

    A lot of money will be made and lost with the natural gas swings this winter.

    As of last Wednesday, the US natural gas price rally that started in May 2012 began to rapidly decline. Naturally, this hurt natural gas producers.

    According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, prices fell from a peak of $3.90 per million BTUs in November to only $3.11 BTUs last Wednesday. However more »
