Samson Oil and Whiting Petroleum Remain Promising Growth Stories Despite Pricing Downturn

The Paragon Report Provides Equity Research on Samson Oil & Gas and Whiting Petroleum

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2011) - The Paragon Report examines investing opportunities in the Oil & Gas Sector and provides equity research on Samson Oil & Gas Limited (NYSE Amex: SSN) (ASX: SSN) and Whiting Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: WLL). Access to the full company reports can be found at:

Abdalla Salem El-Badri, Secretary-General of the Organization of the Petroleum-Exporting Countries (OPEC), argues that the recent fall in the price of oil has been partly caused by speculation in the oil market. Oil prices took a hit after OPEC sharply revised down its forecast for world oil demand for this year and expected consumption would remain weak in 2012, citing waning economic growth in key industrialized nations and a weak US driving season.

While oil demand may be on the downturn, US oil production is skyrocketing. Just last week the Energy Department announced that US crude oil production surged 13 percent to 5.75 million barrels a day last week, the highest level since 2003.
