POINT ROBERTS, WA--(Marketwire - November 15, 2010) - www.Investorideas.com reports on shale energy stocks in the Woodford Shale and Bakken plays, as reports come out from within the industry on how shale developments are playing a key role in the future of energy. Several energy companies are transitioning assets and betting on shale plays. 

In the third of a series of articles on the Woodford Shale play, Investorideas.com looks at both Bakken and Woodford and some of the key players in both. 

Bakken is the biggest, but according to a recent article in PennEnergy.com, shale developments are boosting drilling rig counts across North America, and based on rigs, Woodford is ahead with 140 rigs and Bakken close behind with 137.

In a recently published Investorideas.com interview, Robert McIntosh, President & C.E.O. of American Petro-Hunter, Inc. (OTCBB: AAPH) notes, "Shale plays for oil and gas are the new technology of the industry. Advancements in direction drilling and secondary recovery allow us to drill along these shales -- they have oil it's been found and is more of an engineering issue to extract it, like oil sands. So we will have known predictable oil and not have to 'wildcat' hoping to discover oil. The Bakken is 200 feet thick and is worth billions to the companies involved. Our Oklahoma shale is new and we are on the cutting edge of drilling leasing and production. And the majors are there -- Devon, Chesapeake, Newfield and others now producing gas from the Woodford shale in the south of the State."
