This New Oil Patch Might Have Just Become One of the Best in America

The Tuscaloosa Marine Shale isn't exactly a name that has been associated with America's shale boom like the Bakken or the Eagle Ford, but Goodrich Petroleum's (NYSE: GDP  ) recent discovery there proved it to be very economical.

    The U.S. petroleum companies and their refineries produce increasing amounts of fuel and oil for export.
