Best Oil & Gas Drilling & Exploration Dividend Stocks

Drilling and exploration companies search for potential underground or underwater crude oil or natural gas fields, and drill and operate wells that bring the crude oil or natural gas to the surface (this process is known as "upstream" operations). Many of these companies are structured as trusts, limited partnerships, or limited liability corporations, and on average pay much higher-than-average dividend yields.
