SandRidge Energy and Magnum Hunter Tap Into Rich US Resources

The Bedford Report Provides Stock Research on SandRidge Energy & Magnum Hunter

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 16, 2011) - The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countriess (OPEC) surprised oil investors last week when the cartel announced that it failed to agree on increasing oil production as a way of lowering prices. The announcement caused a noticeable drop in US oil explorers, many of which hope to boost production to capitalize on oil's spike in price.

US oil producers that do not have exposure to Libya and other troubled spots appear poised to boost production. Last month, faced with the economic and political consequences of high gas prices, President Obama offered his support to measures to support domestic oil production. He also called for speedier evaluation of oil and natural-gas projects in the resources in the mid- and south Atlantic region, and said his administration plans to lease new areas in the Gulf of Mexico.
