This has created a work backlog that has the entire industry - drillers, fracking companies, fluid specialists, water services - stretched to the limit, which will keep revenue and profits rising for the sector for at least three years, say research analysts.

Peters & Co., a Calgary based oil and gas boutique brokerage firm, estimates 2011 cash flow per share will increase 40% over 2010 for their coverage universe in the energy services sector - 40%.

Securities firm Raymond James says oil and gas companies will increase spending 25% this year alone to US$133 billion.
