Oil Market’s Big Winners: ‘Little Guys’ Who Are Eager to Drill


Autry Stephens and other small operators race to produce more crude with big players on sidelines; ‘almost too good to be true’


With oil prices today gyrating around $100 a barrel, Mr. Stephens’s company, Endeavor Energy Resources, and a few other privately held U.S. drillers, have emerged as pivotal players in the global energy market. The war in Ukraine and sanctions against Russia have hit supplies, and these smaller operators are among the few racing to produce more crude.

Just wanted to also throw this out here…anyone have some names of smaller publicly traded outfits? Looks like company risk will be minimal in this environment compared to this time last year.
