Morning Research: Halliburton, Cal Dive, Energy XXI, and Helix Energy Solutions

LONDON, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Editor Note: For more information about this release, please scroll to bottom.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) noted in a report last month that the supply shock from North American oil is rippling through global markets. The surge in North American oil production is being driven by the shale boom in the U.S. According to the IEA, the supply shock will lead to a transformation of the oil market over the next five years, which will not only result in oil companies overhauling their global investment strategies, but also reshaping the way oil is transported, stored and refined. On Wednesday, June 19, 2013, shares in oil and gas equipment and services companies ended mostly lower, tracking losses in the broader market which tumbled following the release of Federal Reserve's latest monetary policy statement. The major movers in the sector included Halliburton Company (NYSE: HAL), Cal Dive International Inc. (NYSE: DVR), Energy XXI (Bermuda) Limited (NASDAQ: EXXI), and Helix Energy Solutions Group Inc. (NYSE: HLX). AAAResearchReports.com has released full comprehensive research on HAL, DVR, EXXI, and HLX. These free technical analyses can be downloaded by signing up at

Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
