That job will pay $125,000 to $130,000 a year. It's a tremendous opportunity. You gotta come to North Dakota, but what we're doing here, we're replicating across the nation."Halliburton (NYSE:HAL) has a potential upside of 79.6% based on a current price of $40.27 and an average consensus analyst price target of $72.31.
