Frackers curb production as oil nears $100 a barrel

America’s biggest frackers are reporting huge profits, but plan to keep oil production low this year, signing a deal with Wall Street, even as prices near $100 a barrel for the first time since 2014.

Three of the biggest shale companies, Pioneer Natural Resources Co., Devon Energy Corp. and Continental Resources Inc., this week announced their highest annual profits in more than a decade for 2021.

All three said they would continue to limit production growth this year.
