Abraxas Petroleum swings to a profit with a comeback in U.S. oil fieldsSan Antonio-based driller Abraxas Petroleum Corp. earned $7.2 million in the second quarter, boosted by a comeback in the energy industry, the company said Tuesday. Its profit of 4 cents a share compares with a loss of $46.9 million, or 40 cents a share, during the same quarter last year, the company said in releasing its financial results after the market closed.
San Antonio-based Pioneer Energy Services reported revenue growth as the company shakes off an extended oil bust, but the company posted its 11th consecutive quarterly loss for the three months ended June 30. The company’s net loss of $20.2 million, or 26 cents a share, compared with a net loss of $30 million, or 46 cents per share, for the same quarter last year, the company said in announcing its second-quarter financial results before the markets opened Tuesday. It was less than expected.
The first major battle between South Texans and the one of the region’s pioneering shale drillers will go to court in early 2018, with ranchers and mineral owners accusing Chesapeake Energy and its partners of underpaying tens of millions of dollars in royalties. The legal battle reaches back to the early days of the oil boom, when companies raced to acquire drilling rights on the western edge of the Eagle Ford Shale, a 400-mile oil field that swoops across South Texas.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
