A $6 Driller Has Already Partnered with the World's Largest Oil Companies
It Gets Up to 80% More Oil Per Well
I'm issuing a 'Buy' with a $100 Price Target...
It's being called everything from "magic frack" to the "key to America's energy independence."
I'm calling it "fracking 2.0."
And deservedly so...
You see, this fracking company, still trading for less than $5-per-share, has a drilling technology so superior to current methods, it produces up to 80% more oil and gas than a conventionally-fracked well.
It's also why this tiny company's annual revenue has taken off like a Roman candle... going from $30 million in 2009 to over $160 million last year — a gain of 433%.
It produces so much more oil and gas from wells that some of North America's major oil and gas companies have already partnered up with it to use their technology.
Husky Energy: A Canadian energy giant with oil and gas operations from Alberta to Asia. Our tiny frack company recently entered into a three-year contract with Husky.
Apache: One of the largest drillers in the prolific Permian basin with over 12,000 working wells.
Devon Energy: A $25 billion company that operates over 24,000 oil and gas wells in North America.
Murphy Oil: An energy company that does over $27 billion in annual business.
Chevron: A $211 billion energy behemoth.
In addition to these top five energy companies, our $5.00 company has deals with dozens more...
And their new drilling technique will be deployed in many of the major shale plays all across North America.
I'm talking about:
- The Bakken in North Dakota, Montana, and Saskatchewan...
- The Permian Basin in West Texas...
- The Cardium Basin in Alberta, Canada...
- The Eagle Ford, with an estimated 25 billion barrels of crude oil and condensate...
- And the Marcellus, which is estimated to hold over 140 trillion cubic feet of recoverable gas — enough to supply the U.S. for seven years straight!
That's what I call a golden stamp of approval.
But that's only part of the story...
The Cleanest, Safest Technology
You see, this company's fracking technology is safe.
It doesn't use water or nasty chemicals to fracture the shale to get the oil and gas out of the well.
In fact, it uses natural fluids already found in the well itself.
I like to say it's "Mother Nature's Drill Rig."
- There's no danger of contaminating drinking water...
- It saves millions of gallons of water per well...
- It reduces truck traffic and CO2 emissions (a typical frack well requires 70 tractor-trailer deliveries to the well site)...
- It reduces — and in some cases eliminates — damage to the well formation...
- Nearly 100% of the natural fluid that's pumped into the well gets pumped out and recycled to be used in the next well...
And check this out...
It's so safe, it'll be used in New York!
That's right! New York has had a moratorium on fracking since August 2010.
But this company's fracking technology is so superior and safe — and uses no water or chemicals to do the fracking — that gas-rich Tioga County in New York has agreed to test it out on its 135,000 acres of Marcellus land.
That's what makes this company's fracking technology so different... and so superior.
This is the future of shale drilling. Period.
And it's why the American Gas Association and the International Gas Union awarded this company the Technological Innovator Award for 2011.
According to the World Shale Gas organization:
"The award recognizes the greatest technological breakthrough during the past year. While the company's fracturing technology was launched more than a year ago, the committee felt that its potential impacts are so far-reaching both economically and environmentally to merit the award."
Read that again: "... its potential impacts are so far-reaching both economically and environmentally to merit the award."
I couldn't agree more.
Think about it...
If this company's fracturing technology can increase our production by 50% to 80%, then true energy independence for the United States is within reach.
I mean true independence.
And I'm not the only one that sees this possibility.
On February 16th of this year, Citigroup published a report stating this U.S. shale revolution was a game-changer.
They think North America could be producing 27 million barrels per day by 2020 — almost double the current production of 14 million bpd.
If that happens (and I think it will), America would never have to buy a single drop of oil from the Middle East again... not one drop!
In fact, the U.S. would most likely be exporting its excess oil and gas overseas for quite a tidy profit.
That means no more buying oil from countries that hate us...
We wouldn't have to spend tens of billions of dollars each year policing vital shipping lanes like the Strait of Hormuz...
There would be no need to send our young sons and daughters to hostile foreign countries to protect oil interests...
And it would all be thanks to this tiny $5 "cleanfrack" company that just went public a few years ago.
Trust me when I say that even though the stock debuted in late 2010, this company is still in its infancy when it comes to growth...
It trades at a market cap of just $250 million — they're still a small cap.
Best of all, I guarantee Wall Street has ZERO knowledge of it.
But not for long...
That's why the time to buy it is right now — while it's still trading below $5 a share.
In a minute I'll tell you the name of this company, how to invest in it, and why it should be trading for $15 a share.
But first, let me introduce myself...
My name is Keith Kohl. I'm the managing editor of Angel Financial's Energy Investor, an oil and gas investment advisory service that was launched in 2004.
Three years ago, I alerted my readers to two small oil stocks that were drilling in the Bakken. At the time, they were trading for less than $6 and $8 a share.
Back then, nobody had heard of the Bakken... and they definitely hadn't heard of the two stocks I recommended.
They were Brigham Exploration and Northern Oil & Gas.
In October of 2011, Brigham announced it was being acquired for over $36 a share by Statoil.
My readers who purchased Brigham back in 2008 sold for 600% gains in just three years.
And Northern Oil & Gas currently trades for $18 a share.
I'm happy to say these two stocks have changed the lives of many of the readers who followed my advice...
Like member Mike Leonard, who wrote in to say:
"Keith, I'd like you to know exactly how much I've appreciated your Bakken coverage over the years: I sold my position in NOG in Feb. 2010 for long-term gains of 261%, 1/3 of my position in BEXP in Apr. 2011 for long-term gains of 361% (and bought the wife a new car), and sold the rest of BEXP in Oct. 2011for long-term gains of 743%. Now holding a large position in your newest pick with unrealized long-term gains of 365%. Thanks again!"
Or Kim, who told me...
"Your insight has been great, I am up about 60% on BEXP, and about 40% on NOG. I was mocked when I told my friends about the Peak, but now we know who's getting the last laugh."
Or Mr. Smith, who had this to share:
"As a very recent subscriber I am pleased with the short term progress of BEXP. It was literally the easiest 40% I've ever made in all my years of trading."
Or Martin L., who nearly tripled his investment...
"Held NOG for about 14 months, some tough times, but patience paid off with a 261% gain. Best regards."
Or George, who made some quick cash...
"Keith, made 3K in a just few trading days, all due to your quick call on Brigham. Can't wait for your next Bakken pick."
Or Henry, who made over 1,200% on Brigham. Good job, Henry.
"Keith, I hate to tell you this, but I missed your first round of trades on Brigham, but thankfully took your advice and bought BEXP in April 2009. Since then, it went up 12 fold for me... never sold it until last week. So thanks a lot! Best regards."
But here's my favorite, from long-time subscriber Cheryl B.:
"Hello Keith, I wanted to let you know that thanks to your Brigham calls over the last three years, I've safely paid off my daughter's entire 4-year college tuition. Keep the picks coming."
These days, with a struggling global economy and high unemployment, letters like these are what make me get up in the morning and go to work...
I spend endless hours poring over companies' field production reports, lease acquisitions, landholdings, SEC filings, and CEO interviews.
I've been to the Bakken and Fort McMurray to get a firsthand look at the operations of some of my favorite oil and gas stocks.
And all my hard work is about to pay off for you again with my small $5 "cleanfrack" stock.
Unknown and Undervalued
To give you an idea of how unknown and undervalued this company is, let me compare it to one of my best-performing stock picks of the last three years: Northern Oil & Gas.
Back in 2008, NOG was just a baby oil company when it started drilling in an obscure oil formation known as the Bakken.
Back then, nobody besides hardcore oilmen had even heard of the Bakken. Like I said, I was one of the first energy analysts to recommend these Bakken plays...
And it paid off in spades.
Northern Oil & Gas has been a high-flyer for my readers, some seeing profits over 1,500%.
It's made millions of dollars for my readers.
And that brings me back to my new oil and gas play...
You see, Northern trades at a $1.28 billion market cap. But for the past year, Northern generated $160 million in revenue.
Do you see the opportunity now?
Our tiny "cleanfrack" stock — with a market cap of $250 million — did $161 million in 2011, up from $96 million in 2010.
Think about this for a second...
If the market is awarding Northern Oil & Gas a $1 billion market cap on $160 million in revenue, our tiny oil driller should be trading at a market cap of $1 billion, too!
That would put the stock at more than $23.39 per share — a gain of 419% from its current price.
We have growing revenues...
Growing market share...
High adoption rates of the company's "cleanfrack" technology by big oil and gas companies...
And a proprietary technology that promises to grow our own domestic oil production by potentially billions of barrels.
What's not to like?
I think this will be one of my best-performing oil and gas stocks for the next two years.
So, what exactly is "cleanfrack"... and why did it win the 2011 World Shale Gas Award for Technological Innovator?
Well, "cleanfrack" literally uses petroleum to produce more petroleum.
I assure you this is no joke. In fact, it's the key to completely changing how we drill in America's vast tight oil and gas formations.
And I'm not the only one who's excited about this breakthrough...
According to a 2009 Society of Petroleum Engineers study, this new fracking method hasdemonstrated:
And maybe most importantly...
And that's why I'm so excited about the "cleanfrack" company. Not only is it safe, but it could increase our recoverable oil and gas by 50% to 80%!
Here's what I mean...
100 Billion Barrels...
You see this rock?
This is what a multi-billion-dollar shale oil industry looks like.
Now add the 482 trillion cubic feet of natural gas trapped in formations across the United States...
That's the equivalent of over 72.5 billion barrels of oil... and over three times our current proven oil reserves.
The amount of crude oil trapped in the shale is around 23.9 billion, raising our number to a whopping 96.4 billion barrels of oil equivalent. Any way you look at it, that's a lot of money lying trapped beneath the lower 48 states.
But for decades, tapping this massive "black gold" resource remained a pipe dream. Methods at the time made it too expensive to be economically viable.
Fracking changed all that in an instant...
In a nutshell, hydraulic horizontal fracking uses water, sand, and various chemicals at very high pressure to break up the shale rock, helping the oil and gas flow easier.
When the rock is fractured, or "fracked", the oil and natural gas trapped in the rock is released and the drills can pump out the precious resource.
From California to New York, millions of acres of land have been opened up for domestic oil and gas production because of this one simple technological breakthrough.
It's already helped the United States produce 100% of the natural gas it consumes, drastically helping us reduce our reliance on foreign imports — and supplying us with enough natural gas to power the U.S. for 100 years.
Fracking has increased the supply of natural gas so much, its price has fallen to record lows... while oil still trades for over $100 a barrel!
In fact, the U.S. has so much natural gas, there's not enough storage space to house all the natural gas being produced.
It's gotten so crazy, some companies are literally giving away free natural gas to their customers.
But even this optimistic scenario comes with its detractors and naysayers...
Fracking: Fueling a Media Hellfire
The BBC reported...
Christian Science Monitor says...
And the Williamsport Sun-Gazette said...
Whether the environmental concerns are justified or not, environmentalists and legislators alike will still make hydraulic fracturing a costly endeavor...
And to put it mildly, the environmental cost is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to fracking's problems...
- Despite the amount of oil it's freeing up, it is still very inefficient — often leaving behind up to 50% of the oil still trapped in the shale.
- Fracking fluid must be maintained at a certain temperature to be effective, resulting in costly heating and cooling equipment.
- The water used by drillers is pumped from local sources, which means impurities found in that water can affect well production.
- It also creates tons of wastewater, which must be processed in another costly operation before it can be used again or before it's returned to the environment.
- The CO2 and nitrogen used to help recover fluid is expensive and often in short supply on site.
- Fracking is a delicate procedure that requires constant on-site supervision, which increases personnel costs and safety issues.
It's also extremely wasteful, requiring open flaring of natural gas to recover CO2 and nitrogen needed to pressurize the fracking fluid.
With drawbacks like these, it's no wonder hydraulic fracturing has caught the media hellfire.
So any company that can solve the major problems facing shale oil and shale gas drilling will not only quiet the naysayers...
But you can bet they'll also secure themselves — and a few lucky investors — the billions of dollars that come with cornering America's shale oil and natural gas market.
And I'm going to show you exactly how you can get in on this new profit storm.
But first, let me show you a little more about the game-changing "cleanfrack" technology that's going to change how America drills for oil...
The Key to "Cleanfrack's" Success
Cleanfracking increases the production area of traditional hydraulic fracturing by 50% to 80%.
I don't have to tell you that this increase in production is the key to cleanfrack's success...
How is this possible?
Well, cleanfrack is brilliant in its simplicity.
Instead of water, cleanfrack uses petroleum-based fluid to extract the oil and natural gas from the shale.
And because the fracking fluid is just another petroleum product (not water or other chemicals) it's 100% recoverable when it mixes with the oil and gas... no need for a costly separation of water and sand, which is required for typical fracking.
The petroleum-based fluid that's used in cleanfrack is a natural byproduct of oil drilling.
And it's able to hold the shale formations open longer than water and sand, which reduces potential formation collapse.
As you can see from this chart, this is good news not only for the increased amounts of oil reaching the surface; but it also greatly reduces production and maintenance costs.
Even though the oil and gas industry has marveled at its efficiency, we're also looking at reduced environmental impact and safety concerns — which means lower insurance costs and lawsuit potential.
Since cleanfrack uses no water, it's not going to drain wells.
We're also talking about no more wastewater ponds like this one, with the potential to contaminate water sources:
And it gets even better...
This is the nerve center of the cleanfracking process:
It allows a smaller crew to operate the fracking remotely, decreasing personnel costs and adding more cash to investors' portfolios.
And with the elimination of natural gas flaring, our tiny cleanfrack company can produce an extra 100 billion cubic meters of the clean-burning fuel. (That's the annual natural gas output of Russia alone!)
Now You've Seen It
Between the potential replacement of hydraulic fracturing and the revolutionary advances of its cleanfrack alternative...
You're looking at an investment opportunity that could easily bring you over 200% gains in the next year... and up to 1,500% on your money in the next two to three years, just as I provided for readers with Northern Oil & Gas and Brigham Exploration.
With a management team that has 219 years of combined industry experience, a paltry $5.00 share price, and 11 major drilling companies using the cleanfrack technology in over 246 sites across North America...
It's only a matter of time before this stock skyrockets into the $20s... $30s... if not over $50 a share.
And I'm going to tell you exactly how you can get your piece of this pie.
Simply put, this is my favorite small-cap play in the oil and gas sector.
In fact, I'm so excited about this world-changing technology that I put together a full report documenting all the details you need to get in on this one-of-a-kind profit potential...
