According to data from IHS, the Bakken's cumulative oil production reached the
billion barrel mark in the First Quarter of 2014.

"This milestone validates the immense potential of the Bakken field and
development is just beginning," said Jack Stark, Senior Vice President of
Exploration for Continental. "Two-thirds of this oil was produced in the last
three years. This is something our country can celebrate as the oil and
natural gas industry continues to create jobs, grow our economy and secure
America's energy future."

Horizontal drilling technology has spurred the discovery of vast new resources
of oil in America. Much of this potential has yet to be accounted for in our
nation's proved reserves of crude oil. The Bakken field alone appears to be
the largest oil field discovered in the world in more than 40 years.
Continental is the largest producer, driller and leaseholder in the Bakken
field.
