The Next Disruptive Technology to Change Oil Forever

The kind of industry-changing disruptive technologies being deployed today are some of the most underrated investments you can find in the current market.

We recently saw just how lucrative these investments can truly be. 

After the tech sector crashed hard in 2022, we found ourselves digging around in search of those disruptive investment gems with solid IP that had taken a beating and still held a strong long-term traction. 

One of the companies that we settled on was a small spatial data player named Matterport Inc., a company that had built its own all-in-one 3D data platform with the ability to turn any space into an immersive digital twin. 

All we had to do was bide our time. 

And then it happened… 

On Monday, our patience finally paid off. 

When the opening bell rang out to kick-start this week of trading, members of my Technology and Opportunity investment community were greeted with one helluva move from matterport. 

Go ahead and take a look for yourself:


Shares surged as high as 186% that day after it was announced that CoStar Group — a $37 billion player in the real estate sector — was acquiring Matterport for an estimated $1.6 billion. 

That’s how quickly things can happen. 

And if you think that kind of move is impressive, just wait until you see what’s going to happen as another disruptive technology starts to blossom.

AI Is Spreading Like Wildfire

We’ve moved far beyond talking with chatbots at this point when it comes to artificial intelligence. 

But as the market will soon learn, this is the most exciting part of developing disruptive technology.

We’ve moved into a phase where AI is more than just a passing fancy or twinkle in some developer’s eye — this is the part where we see just how game-changing it will be to the world around us. 

And nowhere else will that be more true than in the energy sector. 

For years, we’ve been saying that the primary driver in U.S. oil production isn’t going to come from a frenzy of drilling, but rather from improving our drilling efficiencies that will both reduce costs and boost output. 

Just last month, I reminded you about a couple of hidden gems in the U.S. oil patch that are doing just that. If you recall, companies like Ovintiv (NYSE: OVV) took a technique called simul-frac, where you can stimulate more stages across two wells at the same time with a single fleet — one step further by developing a trimul-frac technique. 

Of course, Ovintiv wasn’t the only one making these kinds of innovations… 

As impressive as that new technique is, my readers and I were blown away by another small Permian driller that has been pumping so much oil from its wells this year that it’s already beaten its own production guidance. 

If you’re interested, you can see the brand-new drilling technique they’ve developed to help drive well output higher in my latest investment presentation here.

Thing is, the oil and gas industry is going to need more to cut costs and boost drilling efficiencies — and that’s where AI is starting to make an indelible mark. 

It’s a complete evolution from traditional oil and gas drilling operations to streamline production. A few major producers are already utilizing AI technology for things like predictive maintenance. 

The problem is that this creates a few problems of its own, not the least of which being the enormous amount of data that needs to be accurately analyzed in short order. 

Fortunately, there’s already a solution at hand… and behind that technology is a tiny company that is threatening to steal a chunk of Nvidia’s market share that is worth billions to shareholders. 

I strongly recommend you take just a few minutes and see this one for yourself.

Until next time,
