Mount Kellet Capital Management LP has been quiet since urging the board of directors at SandRidge Energy Inc. to replace Tom Ward as CEO, but the investment firm still wants changes at the Oklahoma City oil company.

Mount Kellett, which owns about 4.5 percent of SandRidge's outstanding stock, sent a letter to the board Nov. 15 calling for a new CEO and the addition of independent directors to help unlock the company's true value.
