Texas Shale Boom = Booming Oil Stocks



May 31, 2011 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: EOG , CHK , HK.DL2

The shale boom is happening all across the United State. However, as you probably could have guessed, Texas has become the hub for shale exploration and production. With both the Eagle Ford Shale and the Barnett Shale becoming hot commodities, Texas oil is back on the map in a big way.Investment Underground picked 5 oil stocks that are ready to soar on these Texas oil plays.

I would be much more interested in the Bakken stocks.  Eagle Ford doesn't put out as much oil as the Bakken.  EOG owns property in all of the major shale plays so they are diverse.  I wouldn't buy any oil shale stocks until oil comes back down significantly.

Not spamming, just adding posts from the long weekend. But point noted for the future.


I must agree w/ you about the Bakken. They are definiely producing more up there. Just trying to keep folks up to date on the many shale plays going on.
