Disclaimer: this is the third major change in the blog for 2022 -- an increased emphasis on publicly traded companies I follow for a number of reasons. I may or may not hold positions in any of the companies I highlight. But the companies all have something in common: they help me better understand "energy" in general, and the Bakken, specifically.
