Analysts at Wells Fargo believe that Crescent Pt Energy’s (CSCTF.PK) $784 million purchase of Ute Energy could be a harbinger of a Utah oil boom.

Stocks on watch include other players with an area presence: Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM), Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:APC), Berry Petroleum Co. (NYSE:BRY), Bill Barrett Corporation (NYSE:BBG), and others.
