Oil companies tanked after OPEC announced that it would not be cutting its production rates.
The energy sector as a whole took a hit on Friday, as even oil's competition saw losses following West Texas Intermediate's drop below $70. In fact, the S&P Energy Sector plunged into bear market territory—off about 21 percent from its record high in June—with a more than 6 percent drop on the day.
The last time the sector traded lower than 6 percent was Aug. 8, 2011, following the S&P downgrade of the U.S. credit rating.
Drillers all fell in Friday trading: Seadrill, Transocean, Hercules Offshore, Ensco and Nabors Industries dropped more than 8 percent. Transocean fell over 29 percent in the past month, and Seadrill saw its price drop more than 37 percent in that time.
