The Role of Independent Producers in America’s Energy Future

Lisa Springer, CFA, Equity research analyst and financial writer

Excerpt:

Despite the existence of bountiful untapped domestic reserves, America remains largely
dependent on foreign oil. At present, the US imports over 2/3rds of its oil at costs estimated to
exceed $300 billion annually. Much of this imported oil comes from the politically unstable Middle
East, which controls approximately half of world supplies.

Untapped Opportunity in Shale Oil

Lisa Springer, CFA, Equity research analyst

Excerpt:

Independent oil and gas companies are leading the effort to develop America’s vast untapped
energy reserves. It may surprise many Americans to learn that the US has immense undeveloped
oil and gas resources in the Lower 48 states. A large portion of these reserves consists of
oil and gas trapped in shale bedrock. Once thought unreachable, recently introduced drilling
technologies have enabled the development of shale oil. Hydraulic fracturing is the technique
used to release this trapped oil and gas. Wide-scale use of this technology was the main reason
for a 35% surge in US gas reserves, according to a mid-year 2009 report by the Potential Gas
Committee. This increase was the largest in the 44 year history of the committee. US shale gas
reserves are estimated at 616 trillion cubic feet, or a third of total reserves.
