The oil & gas sector has a renewed emphasis on domestic vs foreign production and is generating a push for the US to become less dependent on foreign energy.The opening of Eagle Ford Shale, one of the largest onshore oil & gas discoveries in the past 50 years, has only further illustrated the available opportunity in this sector. In many cases, hydraulic fracturing is the most common extraction method on these new shale finds. Equipment service liability insurance for independent contractors is now available at a much lower cost.
