Jefferies raised its rating on OGE Energy (NYSE: OGE) from Hold to Buy and increased its price taget from $58.50 to $63.50.

Earlier this week Continental Resources (CLR, $78.67, Buy) unveiled a new very liquids rich unconventional play called the South Central Oklahoma Oil Province (SCOOP). OGE's midstream business, Enogex, has significant acreage dedication in this region and we believe the company's gathering and processing volumes will increase significantly when this area is developed over the next several years."
