I want to show you the true lowest cost natural gas producer in North America. I’m not exaggerating. I’m not guessing. The financial statements make it absolutely clear--this company has the best piece of land on the continent. That isn’t opinion; the hard data tells me that it is so. I’m going to run...
The Offshore Oil Business Is Crippled And It May Never Recover How badly do oil producers want to transition out of the deepwater and focus on shale? And guess what that means for the global oil price? Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) just paid Seadrill (NYSE:SDRL) $125 million in cash to get out of its commitment to...

What's happening is that the Alberta Energy Regulator...
Yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus.  Private equity fund Edge Natural Resources LLC is taking Canamax Energy private--at 67 cents, or a hair shy of a double over Thursday’s share price. It has been my largest position for a junior for two years, and gives me--and the subscribers who bought it...
