I'm trying to get a handle on this stock.  It seems like a spectacular buy.  But I'm concerned that I might be missing something. 

Question 1:
All things being equal, rate of growth is directly related to cost of oil.  (I think I remember reading that they lost money when oil was around $60/barrel, so they should come in with some REALLY great news now that it's $80/barrel)

Question 2:
The biggest risk with this particular company is the political instability of the region.

So as long as that part of the world is (relatively) quiet and the price of oil stays the same or keeps going up, things should work out very nicely for stockholders.

Am I missing anything?

Thanks in advance for your help.
Will E
