NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 12, 2011) - After a surprising 15 percent drop last week, Oil prices are once again on the upswing as investor concern that flooding on the Mississippi River could damage refineries and disrupt fuel shipments has helped push crude higher. The flooding is the latest in a series of events that have propelled oil markets this year, including political uprisings throughout North Africa and the violent conflict in Libya. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for companies in the Oil and Gas sector and provides research reports on SandRidge Energy, Inc. (NYSE: SD) and Samson Oil & Gas Limited (NYSE Amex: SSN).

Surging oil prices have fuelled profits for companies throughout the oil and gas industry, leading some companies to look at expansion opportunities.

When Oklahoma-based SandRidge Energy reported fiscal first quarter earnings last week the company said that a total of 208 gross (187 net) operated wells were completed and brought on production during the recent quarter. Oil and natural gas revenue increased 57 percent to $266.9 million in first quarter 2011 from $169.6 million in the same period of 2010 as a result of increases in oil production and realized reported oil prices.
