Newfield Energy (NFX +6.3%) surges to the top of the S&P 500 leader board after Continental Resources (CLR +3.6%) announces a shale oil discovery in Oklahoma may add 1.8B boe of crude to CLR’s reserves and is geologically similar to the Bakken region (earlier). NFX owns ~135K net acres in the Cana Woodford project near CLR’s discovery.
