Why I Own This Energy Rock Star

The unconventional shale movement in the U.S. has created some unique opportunities for investors. One company that stands out in this space is Heckmann (NASDAQOTH: NESC  ) . As a liquid waste management specialist that makes its bread and butter by treating hydraulic fracturing fluid, Heckmann could have the inside track on several oil services companies. While the company may be narrowly focused on a small part of the drilling process, it has a national presence and is continuing to grow.

Today, Motley Fool analyst Austin Smith checks in with contributor Tyler Crowe about how this company has found a perfect niche in the new energy space that creates great potential for Heckmann down the road. Tyler explains that the company can benefit from expanded shale drilling operations in the U.S., and that stricter environmental regulations on hydraulic fracturing fluids could be a positive sign for the company as well.

Domestic oil and gas service companies have taken a hit due to a slowdown in the natural gas drilling boom of the last couple of years. As this market looks to rebound, investors would be wise to consider Halliburton, one of the top companies in the business and one of those most in tune with the domestic market.
