Oil and Gas Producer in All of the Right Plays

According to some Credit Suisse calculations, Magnum Hunter Resources (NASDAQOTH: MHRCQ  ) has aligned itself with some potentially lucrative oil and gas plays around the country. One that Motley Fool energy analyst Taylor Muckerman looks highly upon is the Utica Shale in eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania. Several larger companies are adding acreage to their portfolios here, with the largest leaseholder being Chesapeake Energy (NYSE: CHK  ) at around 1 million net acres. With current infrastructure here limited, Taylor mentions another company in the video below¬†that might be an even better bet than these exploration and production companies.

Betting big on the Utica in a quest for more oil and wet gas
