Just last week, one of those Fools, sanjac20 , succinctly summed up the EOG bull case for our community:

EOG has been the leading, most successful oil and gas operators in the Haynesville Shale, the Eagle Ford Shale (EFS) and the Bakken Shale.(BS) Their wells have set production records in those 3 massive formations and they are beginning exploration in the Cline Shale which is projected to be larger than the EFS and the BS combined. ...

EOG is simply the best at oil and gas production in the industry.

Record oil and natural gas production is revolutionizing the United States' energy position. Finding the right plays while historic amounts of capital expenditures are flooding the industry will pad your investment nest egg. For this reason, the Motley Fool is offering a comprehensive look at three energy companies set to soar during this transformation in the energy industry.
