Investing in the Future: 5 Oil and Gas Companies Defying the Industry's Decline

Investors take note

The oil and gas industry is facing challenges in 2023, with falling earnings for most companies despite the relatively high price of oil at around $80 per barrel. Natural gas prices have fallen dramatically, adding to the pressure on producers. However, there are a handful of companies that are expected to grow their earnings this year, providing opportunities for investors.

Sitio Royalties (STR) is a unique company that owns oil and gas royalties and leases its mineral assets to other exploration and production companies for drilling. With most of its holdings in the Permian Basin in West Texas and New Mexico, the fastest-growing area for U.S. production, Sitio signed deals for more acres than ever in 2022, setting the stage for growing returns this year.

Northern Oil and Gas (NOG) is a Minneapolis-based company that acquires minority stakes in oil projects and focuses on hedging and new projects like the Mascot in Texas. Its strategy is expected to pay off this year as it continues to expand its portfolio.

Denver-based Ovintiv (OVV) is aggressively adding new drilling sites, including a recent acquisition of 65,000 acres in Texas for $4.275 billion, which has impressed analysts. With a much improved asset runway, Ovintiv is well-positioned to generate significant free cash flow in the coming years.

Permian Resources (PR), based in Midland, Texas, surprised investors when it produced more oil than expected in the fourth quarter of 2022, even as most oil companies were growing production slowly or not at all. With a strong focus on commodity prices and capital efficiency, Permian Resources is well-placed to generate significant free cash flow through 2025, according to analysts, despite the high level of short interest in its shares.

Kosmos Energy (KOS) from Dallas is set to increase its production by 50% in the next year. They are focusing on natural gas, a cleaner energy source that's replacing coal, heavy fuel oil, and biomass in developed and emerging economies. With their sustainable practices, Kosmos Energy is ready to meet the world's energy demands.

While the oil and gas industry faces challenges in 2023, these five companies offer promising opportunities for investors looking to capitalize on the shifting energy landscape.
