Keep an eye on Canadian light oil producer Novus Energy (NOVUF.PK) before the open tomorrow after shares jumped into the close on no published news. Novus is a rapidly growing producer focused on the Viking light oil resource play, and would make a natural acquisition target for larger players such as Penn West (PWE).
