The energy sector is currently experiencing a boom in the U.S, taking into consideration increased drilling activities in the country that are seen as an economic revolution in terms of oil and gas production.

(NYSE:WMB) despite stocks plummeting on the sell out if oil last week.

ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP)

“There is an economic revolution occurring right  now inside the  U.S with Oil and Gas production, and the number that are discussed are about production levels of about a billion dollars a day, ” said Mr. Lang in an interview on Fox Business News. Adding this numbers according to Lang, the oil and gas production levels could contribute 2% of the entire economy in the coming years.

Mr. Lang believes that some of the companies that are well positioned to benefit from increased production levels are ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) and Williams Companies, Inc. (NYSE:WMB) that are essentially building infrastructure to sustain the same. ConocoPhillips is reportedly planning to invest about $16 billion as it looks to take a strategic position on the increased levels of drilling in the U.S.

Lang remains bullish on ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) and Williams Companies, Inc. (NYSE:WMB)  despite Crude oil going down last week by 3.1% to close on a two month low. Williams Companies, Inc. (NYSE:WMB) is another company that has taken a keen interest on increased production levels of gas and oil in the U.S by investing about $25 billion on infrastructure development.

RNC Genter Capital Management CEO, Dan Genter, is also keeping a close watch of the energy sector with his top picks being Total SA (ADR) (NYSE:TOT). The commodity segment according to, Mr. Genter, makes Total SA (ADR) (NYSE:TOT) one of the best plays in the energy segment considering it is rarely affected by political matters and it is less regulated.

“I think Total SA (ADR) (NYSE:TOT) is a big play, pure play on the commodity price, that we feel will probably stay at least in the $100-$105 barrel range. The nice thing about them they are little less regulated or dealing with political policies” said Mr. Genter.
