About Us

Continental Resources is a top 10 independent oil producer in the U.S. and a leader in America’s energy renaissance. Based in Oklahoma City, Continental is the largest leaseholder and the largest producer in the nation’s premier oil field, the Bakken play of North Dakota and Montana. The Company also has significant positions in the SCOOP and STACK plays of the Anadarko Basin of Oklahoma and newly acquired positions in the Powder River Basin of Wyoming and Permian Basin of Texas. With a focus on the exploration and production of oil, Continental has unlocked the technology and resources vital to American energy independence and our nation’s leadership in the new world oil market. In 2024, the Company will celebrate 57 years of operations.



We believe we are among the most efficient and cost-effective producers of oil and natural gas on the planet. One reason why, is we are invested in the United States, with a premier portfolio of assets in unconventional resource plays in North Dakota, Montana, Oklahoma, Wyoming and Texas. We believe these assets represent decades of future development and production, with the opportunity to grow to meet the increasing energy demands of the modern world, here and across the globe.
