SandRidge Energy (SD) Stock Falls on OPEC's Oil Price Outlook

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of SandRidge Energy  (SD) fell 4.55% to $1.53 in late morning trading Monday after bearish commentary on oil prices by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).

OPEC said in a draft report that oil prices would remain below $100 per barrel until at least 2025 according to the Wall Street Journal. The organization's most optimistic scenario predicts that oil would sell at approximately $76 a barrel a decade from now, the report states.

On the more pessimistic side, OPEC, which represents 12 nations that produce oil, cautioned that crude oil could cost as little as $45 a barrel in 2025.

"$100 is not in any of the scenarios," a delegate remarked at an OPEC presentation last week in Vienna, according to the Journal.
