Insiders and a Billionaire Are Buying My Favorite Permian Play

Written by Keith Kohl

In my March 27 editorial, "America is the Global Energy King: The U.S. is now exporting more than 12 OPEC nations produce!” I told you about a small energy company doing something revolutionary in Martin County in West Texas.

I said:

A breakthrough drilling technology is pumping out so much oil that the Financial Post says:

“You add all the numbers up and what you start to come up with is very, very scary…”

“Dwarfs all other drilling techniques...”

“It’s the next big thing after fracking!”

In some cases, this new method of extraction has increased oil production by over 1,000% — sometimes over 2,000%.

Since I wrote that article, oil production in the Permian has breached over 4 million barrels per day.

To put into perspective how historic that is, take a look at this chart:

Oil Production/Millions of Barrels per Day
Nation B/D (Millions)
Saudi Arabia 10.4
Iraq 4.4
U.S. Permian 4.2
Iran 3.9
UAE 3.1
Kuwait 2.9
Venezuela 2.2
Nigeria 1.9
Angola 1.7
Qatar 1.5
Algeria 1.3
Ecuador 0.55
Libya 0.38
Congo 0.26
Equatorial Guinea 0.22
Gabon 0.21

The Permian oilfield — a single oilfield in the U.S. — would be the third largest oil producer in OPEC. And by the end of the year it’s expected to surpass Iraq, making it the second largest oil producer in OPEC... and the third largest on the planet.

Mind you, the Permian isn’t a nation. It covers only 86,000 square miles and extends across an area approximately 250 miles wide and 300 miles long. Compare that to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its 830,000 square miles, and you realize just how special the Permian is.

But it gets better.

Oil analysts across the globe expect the Permian to exceed 8 million barrels per day within four years.

Exxon and Chevron alone are targeting 1.9 million barrels of Permian production by 2024. That’s just five years away.

But production is coming online so fast because of advances in drilling technology that are literally sucking out every drop of oil from the prolific basin.

And many analysts — even OPEC and the IEA — believe the Permian will eventually become the #1 oil producer in the world.

Now, I have a play I want to share with you. It is the pioneer of the drilling technology I’ve been talking about.

And here’s the deal...

The recent market sell-off has given us a prime opportunity to buy at a very attractive valuation.

Truth be told, I was little worried.

The stock was one of the market’s best performers in the first quarter with a gain of 26%. It was running away from me.

But like I said, the recent sell-off has given us a blessing to buy at lower levels.

And I’m not the only one who has taken notice.

The company’s insiders have been buying, too, as well as legendary oil man T. Boone Pickens’ BP Capital fund.

As I write this, the stock trades below $6 a share. Hopefully it’s still there when I release my report on it in the next couple of weeks.

But regardless, it’s a screaming buy even at $10.

Stay tuned for my report I’ve prepared exclusively for you.

Until next time,
