Specialization works—until it doesn’t. Oil and gas specialists would be wise to consider these hidden risks in pursuing the pure-play strategy.

EQT, one of the biggest natural gas producers in the U.S. with a large footprint in the Appalachian region, plans to run six frack crews and seven rigs this year.

A system looks to optimize value in directional drilling by minimizing deviation from planned wellbore trajectory, minimizing tortuosity and more.
