WILLISTON, N.D. (Reuters) – North Dakota oil producer Oasis Petroleum welcomes having hedge fund SPO Partners & Co as its largest shareholder, Chief Executive Tommy Nusz said in an interview on Monday, commenting on a fund that has been a shareholder since Oasis went public in 2010.
SPO, which has been steadily increasing its stake in the company since December, bought more than 2 million shares alone late last week, bringing its stake in Oasis to 11.9 percent.
, Jan 12 (Reuters) – A stark breakdown from

state official’s personal model.

presentation to the state legislature that included a range of
output forecasts based on different oil price scenarios,
including one showing production would begin to decline by the
middle of this year if crude prices remained at current levels.
