ConocoPhillips' CEO referenced the shale boom as being in just "the first inning of a nine inning game." Which companies are providing the necessary technology?

In referring to the progress we've made in the shale energy business, ConocoPhillips ( COP -0.62% ) CEO, Ryan Lance, compared it to being in just "the first inning of a nine inning game."
