Land Use & Wildlife Protection
Continental responsibly operates to reduce impacts to the land and wildlife from our operations. We limit our surface footprint by using directional and horizontal drilling technologies, drill multiple wells from a single pad where possible, and downsize our drilling sites for production operations.
Under Continental’s environmental policy, protection of wildlife and protected species is a fundamental aspect of our operations. In addition to our day-to-day avoidance, minimization, and mitigation practices, Continental has participated in a number of conservation planning and work groups, including those for the lesser prairie chicken, the American burying beetle, and the Dakota skipper.
