Just last week, one of those Fools, NickFlooding, touched on a couple of Energy XXI's seemingly potent partnerships:

Very solid existing reserves. Near and long term increasing production via the drill bit in existing fields and new field exploration with [ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM  ) ] in Vermillion. ... The downside of a failure of [McMoRan Exploration's (NYSE: MMR  ) ] UltraDeep is not all that large while the up side would be a nice plus. Whats not to like?

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a perfect five-star rating, Energy XXI may not be your top choice.

    EXXI will steadily rise as it shifts to oil heavy drill sites. if the Davey Jones gas field ever comes online (MMR operated), the bump will be huge even at modest gas prices.
