A few weeks back CNBC sent anchor and Mad Money host Jim Cramer up to the Bakken shale to get an on the ground view of the amazing changes taking place in the area. North Dakota is booming with an overwhelming demand for employees. The companies leading the drilling efforts such as Continental Resources (CLR) and Brigham Exploration (BEXP) have benefited handsomely from the massive growth in that area.
Though known by many industry experts and investors, another area exists in southern Texas that might match or exceed the oil produced from the Bakken. That area is called the Eagle Ford Shale.
