The energy sector is on fire as oil and gas prices continue to rise. Energy stocks were the best performing sector in 2021 and with the events in Ukraine look poised to repeat in 2022. While energy stocks are an obvious way to play the rising energy prices there will come a tipping point when alternative fuels become more attractive. Not only because of the ESG component, but prices may eventually become cheaper as well.
Camber Energy (NYSE:CEI) subsidiary, Viking Energy (OTCMKTS:VKIN) may be one of the best ways to benefit from both factors. VKIN has proven oil and gas assets valued at over $96 million located in North America in Kansas, Missouri, Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. The reason VKIN may be a great way to play the rise in energy prices is that most leaders in the energy sector like ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM) are already up big. VKIN’s oil & gas holdings aren’t something the company speaks about regularly because it is focused on several ESG initiatives, which are covered below. However, the fact is VKIN’s assets are increasing in value rapidly and the market has yet to factor that in, which is one reason to like the company.
Viking Energy (OTCMKTS:VKIN) is unique in that not only will its oil & gas assets rise in value; but its several diversified green energy subsidiaries will also benefit as rising oil prices push people toward green alternatives. These include a Green biodiesel production facility and a carbon capture technology. Other products in the company’s green portfolio include a medical waste treatment technology and a newly acquired Electric grid optimization technology which allows for retrofitting.
Some other traditional energy stocks that may not have yet fulfilled their upside include Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI) and Plains All American Pipeline (NASDAQ:PAA) remains a good value for long-term investors.
However, the sector that has not yet seen the uptick based on rising energy yet are alternative fuel plays. Most investors know Nikola Corporation (NASDAQ:NKLA), Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) and Toyota Motor Corporation (NYSE:TM) lesser-known alt. fuel plays like Viking Energy (OTCMKTS:VKIN) may benefit most.
Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure plc (NASDAQ: AY) is a UK-based solar company that maintains and manages natural gas fields and provides transmission, distribution, and water resource options.
Renewable Energy Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: REGI) is an Iowa-based biodiesel production company has over 13 biorefineries and one feedstock processing facility. Much like the aforementioned VKIN facility aims to be, its feedstock treatment facility is right inside the company’s refinery.
VKIN’s biodiesel facility is in Reno, Nevada, where fellow green energy company Ormat Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: ORA) has over 933 megawatts (MW) of geothermal and recovered energy-based power plants.
While rising energy prices will benefit both energy stocks and green energy plays; Viking Energy is the rare opportunity to benefit from both segments. Make sure VKIN is on your watchlist.
