    Amidst what the National Drought Mitigation Center has classified as abnormal to severe drought conditions, operators in Texas’ Eagle Ford Shale formation are taking steps to increase their ability to recycle wastewater generated during hydraulic fracturing operations. Bruce Bullock, director of the Maguire Energy Institute at Southern Methodist University’s Cox School of Business, estimates that within five years Eagle Ford operators will be able to recycle half of the wastewater generated during the fracking process. Current estimates place the wastewater recycling rate at 30 percent, up from just 1 percent five years ago. “Water is becoming a precious resource,” says Bullock. “As it does, it will become more and more economical for companies to recycle.”

    In early May, Austin-based oilfield services provider Pinnergy Ltd. and Austin-based water-recycling company Shalewater Solutions launched a joint venture to provide water-management services to operators in U.S. shale plays, particularly in the Eagle Ford.

    The Pinnergy-Shalewater joint venture follows on the heels of Nuverra Environmental Solutions’ announcement that it was purchasing 180 acres in South Texas to develop a facility to collect, treat and recycle liquid and solid waste from Eagle Ford wells. Some companies, including Houston-based Energy Water Solutions, have sought to address the wastewater issue by deploying a squadron of mobile wastewater recycling units to Eagle Ford well sites.

    “The oil and gas industry is really going to continue to move the meter on water recycling,” says Bullock. “It’s just a question of how fast they do it.”

  • Critics of fracking, may have hoped drought-ridden states might be inclined to shut down the oil and gas extraction method that uses huge amounts of water.

    But just last month, in the midst of the worst drought in California's history, the state Senate killed a bill that would have put a moratorium on the state's use of hydraulic fracturing.

    Halliburton COO and Executive VP Jeff Miller sat down with The Motley Fool's own Taylor Muckerman to discuss the energy industry. In part two of this five-part interview, Miller talks about why U.S. companies have been so much quicker to develop new technology to access shale resources than their international peers and rivals, as well as the more efficient use and recycling of water for fracking.

  • Muckerman: It is very expensive for these companies to truck the water in, truck the wastewater out. One company you’ve targeted is Nuverra Environmental Services, about a year ago. I was wondering if that partnership is still seeing some nice inroads? I know they were working a lot in the Bakken shale, prior to this partnership that was announced a little while ago.

    Miller: Yes, we partner with companies where it makes sense. Again, it’s integral to our water strategy, as to how we work with the partners in the local markets to either transport water or be a part of what we do.

    Water has been clearly a successful -- recycling projects in the Bakken -- it’s very important there as it is, really everywhere.

    FRISCO, TX--(Marketwired - May 16, 2014) - OxySure Systems, Inc. (OXYS) ("OxySure," or the "Company"), a global leader and medical device innovator of life-saving, easy-to-use emergency oxygen solutions with its "oxygen from powder" technology today announced financial and operating results for the first quarter 2014.

  • Vancouver, BC, April 23, 2014 -. Dallas-based Stonegate Securities has initiated coverage on OxySure Systems (OXYS). OxySure has pioneered a safe and easy to use solution to produce medically pure oxygen from inert powders, eliminating the need for a pressurized gas tank.

  • Halliburton, the world's second largest oilfield services provider, surged to an all-time high of $63.88 after the company reported better than expected quarterly results and forecasted 25% sequential growth in earnings in 2Q. The company reported 1Q14 operating EPS of $0.73, topping Wall Street estimates of $0.71 by 3%.

    Best positioned in North America
    Halliburton is the leading provider of completion services and the market leader in North America. Driven by a combination of improving utilization, lower costs, and a surging Gulf of Mexico, North American margins are once again on the rise. In this favorable environment, the company appears best positioned in the group.

  • - Revenue growth in 2013 was up 567%.
    - CE Mark in Europe could double sales in 2014.
    - Expect strong military orders later this year.
    - Stock trading at less than 5x 2016 EPS estimate.

  • Revolution Winner #2: Balance Sheet Behemoths

    It sounds obvious, but the second type of winner will be companies that not only have their costs in order, but are also growing revenue and profits.

    Many drillers that lose money getting oil and gas out of the ground are simply absorbing these losses. That’s because costs for early startup, land acquisition, energy, labor and equipment are fiercely high at the early stages.

    Some estimates peg startup costs at $1.50 for every $1 in revenue.

    See the problem? That business model isn’t going to last long. And it’s playing out in the profits for some of the bigger players.

    For example, Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD), one of the premier companies that got into the shale business early, has produced record amounts of oil and has shown massive revenue growth. In 2012, it notched $3.2 billion in revenue. In 2013, that number jumped to $3.7 billion. But operating income fell, largely due to the huge capital investments.

    It will likely recoup those costs going forward, but it’s a stark reminder that the costs for finding unconventional, hard-to-get oil are very high. If they weren’t, Alaska would have shut its doors years ago.

  • On April 2, 2014 OxySure Systems (OXYS) announced that its portable emergency oxygen device has achieved "CE Mark approval" - a critical step toward launching this low cost life-saving device in Europe.

    "CE Marking in Europe is equivalent to the FDA approval in the U.S," states OxySure Chairman and CEO Julian Ross in an exclusive interview with Financial Press, "It is a rigorous 10 month process which we have successfully completed. This milestone is very significant for our company. We now have a green light to commercialize the OxySure Model 615 in all 30 countries belonging to the European Economic Area."

    In Europe, 7% of hospital admissions result from respiratory causes, costing hundreds of billions of dollars. Many of these visits could've been avoided if the patients had early access to medical oxygen.

    OxySure's $349 device delivers medically pure oxygen on demand from two dry powders. OxySure owns a portfolio of patents, creating a "moat" around its business.

    "Now we have the ability to go ahead and tackle all the European countries," states Ross, "including Germany which is one of our predominant target markets. Basically we have 700 million new people we can sell to."

    Sales of the OxySure Model 615 increased 10-fold in 2013 from the previous year to an estimated $1.6 million. OxySure's market is estimated to be ten times larger than the market for Automated External Defibrillators (AED) -- which has already sold 2 million units in the U.S. alone. The OxySure Model 615 is one quarter the cost of an AED and 300 times more likely to be used.

    "We already have two distributions agreements in place for Europe," states Ross, "One with Medizon for Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg and a second agreement with Aero Health for the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. The CE Marking triggers a minimum combined purchase of 6,750 units of OxySure Model 615 to Medizon and Aero Health in the next two years."

  • While traders were obsessing over the lack of stock market action in the first quarter, the price of West Texas Intermediate Crude moved over $100 a barrel. It’s a meaningful breakout for black gold which hadn’t found a firm foothold in the triple digits since the third quarter of last year.

    Optimists would think the global tensions in Ukraine and the absurdity that was last winter would have trumped Summer Driving Season’s annual increase in the rise of crude. Colorful CME trader Tres Knippa thinks crude is a raging buy at $100.

    “There’s been tension in the Middle East since the earth cooled,” Knippa observes in the attached clip, “so I’m kind of counting on that to continue.” As for the much vaunted glut of WTI in the U.S., Knippa sees little evidence of any such thing exists in the pits. “The glut is simply not there and whoever’s models are anticipating that I’d have to disagree with them.”

    If the above freaks you out you’re better off not hearing Knippa’s price targets. He says crude could be approaching $125 or $130 without any outside help. A little uptick in the Middle East would bring $150 into play and the previously unthinkable $200 level is a possibility if the world really comes unhinged.

    He’s loathe to put a timing target on the uptick but he’s more than happy waiting it out while crude bubbles. Until he sees a reversal in premiums being paid in the commodity pit, Knippa’s confident we’ve seen the last of WTI crude in the $80s.

  • BEIJING, March 31 (Reuters) - Sales at Amway Inc, the multi-level marketing company that earned about 40 percent of its total revenue in China last year, are likely to be unaffected by a recent investigation of Nu Skin Enterprises Inc and heightened scrutiny from Beijing's commercial regulator.

  • Pioneer Resources, Apache, and Concho Resources comprise the top three producers in the Spraberry/Wolfcamp field. They lead the pack in average daily production there, which is a wise move given the tantalizing potential.

    Pioneer's Permian position represents a core asset for Pioneer, since it operates 35 rigs there, 24 of which are horizontal and 11 vertical. Pioneer's average production stands at 93,000 barrels of oil equivalents per day. That makes Pioneer the largest producer at the Spraberry/Wolfcamp development. And, since its production from this field represented 58% of its total production last year, it's clear how important the area is to Pioneer.

    For its part, Apache produces 51,000 barrels of oil equivalents per day from Spraberry/Wolfcamp, approximately 10% of its total production. Apache has taken drastic steps to restructure its portfolio toward higher-margin liquids and North American onshore production more broadly. In 2009, Apache derived 50% of its production from liquids, and in terms of geographic focus, only generated 10% of its production from the Permian Basin. Last year, those figures were 58% liquids and 23% of production from the Permian Basin.

    Concho's average production stands at 37,000 barrels per day from the Spraberry/Wolfcamp field. Concho operates almost exclusively in the Permian Basin, and its success there resulted in a 20% increase in oil-weighted production from continuing operations last year.

  • BP is moving to export crude oil from the United States, but doing so in a way that avoids violating the export ban. It has agreed to take 80% of the capacity coming from a small refinery under construction in Houston. The $360 million facility to be operated by Kinder Morgan would partially refine the oil, just enough to be categorized as a refined petroleum product, rather than crude oil. The U.S. has maintained an export ban on crude oil for 41 years, dating back to the 1973 oil embargo. The ban was intended to insulate the U.S. from price spikes and supply shortages.
