because you want to move data from Oracle to SQL and not the other way round maybe you should post this on the Oracle

yes u can do this..

2 ways..
 One is adding oracle as a linked server..
   EXEC sp_addlinkedserver
   'LONDON Mktg',

and running ur query like
select * into   #temptable from (select  * from (openquery([London Mktg], 'select * from my oracle table')) drv

other way is

select * from
      OPENrowset('MSDAORA','Oracle SID';'username';'password','my select query') drv
