Rising energy prices and geopolitical instability could force more nations to explore shale gas reserves, leading to wider opportunities for fracking.

Curated by Motif Investing


Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, lets companies extract previously inaccessible oil and natural gas from shale rock formations deep within the earth - all at a relatively low cost. The technology has breathed new life into the natural gas industry, boosting production and driving down prices – even as environmental concerns mount. Natural gas could supply 25% of US energy needs by 2035. While still in its infancy overseas, fracking has the potential to be a global phenomenon. China, the world’s second largest energy consumer, has large shale gas reserves and is now moving quickly to deploy fracking to access them.

This motif contains stocks of companies that provide fracking technologies and services to oil and gas developers.

    COVID-19 Concerns Are Crushing Energy Stocks Today

    For example, Brookfield Infrastructure doesn't have any direct exposure to commodity prices, since regulated rates back its utilities and fixed-rate contracts insulate its energy midstream assets. Thus, an economic slowdown could affect Brookfield's earnings, especially the company's global ports business, since it could slow maritime trade.


    ‘Fracking’ Used to Be the Future of Oil Drilling. This Company Is Betting It’s Not Dead Yet.

    Liberty CEO Chris Wright told Barron’s people shouldn’t mistake Schlumberger’s decision to exit fracking as a death knell for the industry.
