The United States is in the middle of an oil and gas mega-boom, due to hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, to extract natural gas from shale. Our exports of petroleum products are up nearly 150% in three years to a record $140 billion, Forbes reported earlier this year.
How can you, the investor, divert a bit of that boom right into your own portfolio? Easier than splitting rocks. For more information about shale energy, and the companies involved in its production, just sign up for the free online conference that occurred on Thursday, July 11, “The Shale Revolution.”
The event by RetailInvestorConferences.com began at 9:45 a.m. EDT and ran through 3:30 p.m. EDT on July 11. You can now view the virtual conference through the archives.
In addition, Avi Goldin, chief financial officer of Genie Energy (NYSE: GNE); Steve Lucado, chairman; and John G. Corp, president, of Trans Energy (OTCPK: TENG), will give participants a behind-the-scenes look at their companies and their industry.
Genie Energy consists of IDT Energy and majority holdings in Genie Oil and Gas, which is developing oil shale products in Colorado and in Israel.
Shale producer Trans Energy, a BetterInvesting corporate partner, and its partner, Republic Energy, own interests in and operate approximately 62,000 gross acres in West Virginia.
Analysts Will Discuss Investing in the Shale Industry
At noon, the education session “Shale Revolution Best Ideas: Analysts’ Top Pick in Upstream Energy” will offer you even more insight on this growth industry as Crocker Coulson, president, CCG, investor relation, interviews Fadel Gheit, managing director and senior analyst at Oppenheimer & Co., and discusses some of the companies that are best positioned to benefit from the dramatic expansion of U.S. energy production due to the expansion of unconventional oil & gas resources.
Fadel will provide his views on the critical elements to consider when selecting stocks in the unconventional oil & gas sector and will also review selected buy-rated stocks, including: Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:APC), Apache Corp. (NYSE:APA), Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE:CHK), ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP), Devon Energy Corporation (NYSE:DVN), EOG Resources, Inc. (NYSE:EOG), Hess Corporation (NYSE:HES), Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE:MRO), Murphy Oil Corporation (NYSE:MUR), Noble Energy, Inc. (NYSE:NBL), Occidental Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:OXY), and Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS).
This is a must-attend event for any investor who wants to think about actionable ways to play America’s shale revolution.
You’ll be able to dig deep into this topic by asking the industry leaders questions during the conference and at the Exhibit Hall, where investor kits will be ready for downloading.
