Greater Efficiency Continues Benefitting The Entire Country

Efficiency is the goal of most companies. So why would energy companies be any different? For the last couple of years, the industry has been worried about a falling rig count. Lately, however, the rig count hasn't seemed to matter. In nearly every basin in the U.S., oil and natural gas fields have been seeing increasing rates of production per rig.

Halliburton (NYSE: HAL  ) and Schlumberger (NYSE: SLB  ) are just two companies have been leading the charge. While they have been helping achieve this increased efficiency, it's the producers like EOG Resources (NYSE: EOG  ) and Pioneer Natural Resources (NYSE: PXD  ) that will be the true beneficiaries. These two companies are leading producers in two of the most productive fields in the country. For more, tune in to the short clip below.
