Amazing Energy Oil and Gas Co. (AMAZ) won't be put in a corner just because it's small cap.

While the big names such as Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) might have size and scale in their favor, smaller cap energy companies such as Amazing Energy are quicker and nimbler, CEO and director Will McAndrew told TheStreet at the LD Micro conference in Los Angeles. 

McAndrew explained that his firm knows Texas' Permian Basin well and doesn't have to pay the same astronomical prices for land that other, larger companies do. Amazing Energy has also pivoted to shine a light on the importance of understanding the technology and science behind drilling in order to get the most out of the business.
