LONDON, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The shale boom in the U.S. has emerged as a major trend in the oil and gas
industry in the last two years. According to the International Energy Agency
(IEA), the U.S. will overtake Saudi Arabia as the world's largest producer of
oil in the next few years thanks to shale boom. The shale revolution has also
pushed natural gas prices in the U.S. to record low levels, which should
benefit the U.S. economy. It has also created significant opportunities for
oil & gas drilling & exploration companies such as Petroleo Brasileiro
Petrobras SA (NYSE: PBR), Cheniere Energy Inc. (AMEX: LNG), Hercules Offshore
Inc. (NASDAQ: HERO), QEP Resources Inc. (NYSE: QEP), and Helmerich & Payne
Inc. (NYSE: HP). Oil and gas stocks ended mostly higher on Monday, tracking
gains in the broad market.StockCall has posted free technical research on
