Last week, I told you about “eco-friendly” oil. This is a new production technique that allows oil producers to reduce their surface impact by about 75%, while lessening the disturbance of large underground water sources.
Now, for the sake of full disclosure, it’s not really “eco-friendly.”
But it is far less environmentally destructive than older, more outdated methods of production.
Of course, the main reason we’re so bullish on it has more to do with profits than environmental benefits. Not that those benefits should be trivialized, but at the end of the day, we’re looking for quick and steady gains.
And that’s exactly what this new oil production technology offers.
As the global energy economy continues to transition, technological advancements are being developed faster and faster.
Certainly we’ve seen this in the solar space where, back in 2005, manufacturers of the most basic conventional solar photovoltaic systems were all the rage. A few years later, it was all about a “new” technology (new back then, anyway) called thin-film photovoltaics, which is a form of solar that is lighter, thinner, and cheaper to manufacture.
Today “thin film” is old news — and investors are lining up to get a piece of the installation market that’s now booming, thanks to a massive drop in solar production costs. SolarCity (NASDAQ: SCTY) is one such installation play that continues to benefit nicely from solar leasing projects in the retail, commercial, and military sectors.
In 2013 new, disruptive solar technologies, like “black solar” and solar windows, will be all the rage. This is actually sparking a lot of new interest in small chemistry and engineering firms that are taking the lead in the next round of solar technology advancements.
Over the past eight years, we have witnessed the rise and fall of various solar movements. And this will certainly continue, along with the profits.
But solar’s not the only game in town when it comes to front-running the new energy tech giants and profiting handsomely…
The First on Fracking
Years ago, when my colleague Keith Kohl first wrote about fracking and opportunities in the Bakken, his analysis fell on deaf ears. Mainstream analysts had a thousand and one excuses as to why fracking would never be anything more than a niche, and the Bakken would never be much more than a research station in North Dakota.
Yet here we are today, with U.S. oil output surpassing imports for the first time since 1995.
You can thank fracking for that!
And you can thank Keith for alerting you to these fracking opportunities early on, when all those Wall Street blowhards were busy swilling overpriced lattes and ignoring Keith’s calls to load up on domestic fracking plays.
Of course, just like we saw in the solar space, oil and gas production technologies are also constantly evolving in an effort to help producers become more efficient and more profitable.
And that’s exactly what we’re seeing now with this so-called eco-friendly drilling technology, also known as the “Octopus.”
This Is It!
Now, you’ve already read quite a bit about this new “Octopus” drilling technology. And by now, you should be pretty well-versed.
But what you may not know is that while we’ve been reading and writing about this new, disruptive technology, Keith’s actually been very busy visiting oil fields all across the country, witnessing this technology firsthand…
Don’t forget Keith is the guy who sidestepped conventional thinking nearly a decade ago and preached the good word of fracking. He’s been at the forefront of the fracking revolution — and he’s constantly in contact with producers to stay on top of the next “big thing” in oil production.
My friends, the Octopus is it. And I know this because at 7 o’clock this morning, Keith drove straight from the airport to the office, wreaking of coffee and exhaustion, just so he could write about his most recent fact-finding mission…
Which includes a complete analysis of how the Octopus works — and how it’s about to help readers like you make a sizable fortune.
I’ll be sending you a copy of Keith’s analysis on Tuesday. Keep a lookout for his report. Because quite frankly, this could easily be our biggest score of 2013.
You don’t want to miss it.
To a new way of life and a new generation of wealth…
