Using ODBC interface to Oracle Excel can do this without
any external (Python) program.  Just:

1) Create a ODBC DSN that interfaces with Oracle
2) In Excel do Data-Get External Data-New Database Query
3) Tell Excel what tables/columns/order/filtering you want

You can even save the Database Query for later re-use.
If you want, you can automate this process using Python
COM+ interface to Excel.
