The shale bonanza has sparked a switch in the behavior of oil firms: Companies have been selling off assets overseas and pumping money back into the U.S. Conoco (COP) has been involved in six major foreign sales in the past year totaling $11B, and much of it is being redirected into North Dakota and Texas shale. Other firms redirecting overseas assets to the U.S.: HES, DVN, APA, MRO, MUR, NBL.
