The company recently increased liquids growth guidance for the second time in 2012, while also increasing its oil hedging strategy by 200%, at $100 per barrel. With proven management, and a number of oil heavy plays in its portfolio, EOG is positioned nicely to rake in outsized profits during oil peaks, and easily withstand downturns in the market.
