Company Report

Dual Fuel-Capable Frac Fleets Drive Liberty Energy's Efficiency Gains

Liberty Energy has provided hydraulic fracturing services since 2011, expanding from one active fleet to over 40 over the past decade. Most of its management team has been involved in technological innovation for fracking since the 1990s. Current tech solutions include statistical analysis to optimize frac design and dual-fuel fleets. The 2020 acquisition of OneStim from Schlumberger, previously the leader in North American pressure pumping, doubled Liberty's capacity while adding a slew of previously unpenetrated customers and shale basins.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Increased market share resulting from the OneStim acquisition will enable Liberty to develop relationships with new clients, leading to higher revenue growth over time.

Bears

A lack of international exposure limits Liberty’s growth potential to E&P firms’ capital spending in North American markets, which are inherently volatile
