Hess Corporation Research Report

The clear-cut strategy of Hess to fuel its long-term growth is seen by analysts
and investors as an efficient move to achieve company goals. After announcing
its plan to reduce overall expenditures, Hess has been making a thorough
assessment of its core and non-core operations as part of its transformation.
The company is pursuing the sale of its US East Coast and  St. Lucia  terminal
networks since these are no longer part of Hess' core operations. The Port
Reading refinery is also expected to be closed by now since the company wants to
focus on its economical assets. Hess announced a full-year capital and
exploratory budget of  $6.8 billion. Hess recently completed the drilling of its
seventh consecutive successful exploratory well on the Deepwater Tano/Cape Three
Points block offshore  Ghana. The Full Research Report on Hess Corporation -

Questar's success in 2012 came amid the challenging economic environment that
was perceived as a hindrance to any industry's positive output. The company's
1.3% customer growth rate is seen to be one of the key factors that will bring
the company to a better positioning in the industry. Questar's subsidiary,
Wexpro, reported a solid 94% drilling success rate which resulted to 43.5 net
successful gas and oil wells with 10.8 net wells waiting for completion. Questar
is focusing on its three key initiatives that will boost shareholder value in
2013. The company is also poised to be a major player in natural gas refueling
