Finally, no list of unconventional energy players can be complete without King Hal. It stands to reason that higher reserve estimates translate into more drilling. As the leading oil services provider in the Bakken, Halliburton (NYSE:HAL) will continue to be the go-to supplier of fracking pumps, fluids and other equipment to tap that energy.
HAL should also benefit from recently rising natural gas prices across the country as more firms return to drilling.
Halliburton isn’t necessarily cheap as shares continue to make new 52-week highs. However, it is the North American leader when it comes to fracking and drilling. As such, the expense is worth it.
HAL really is best of breed.
