Feb. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Continental Resources Inc., the biggest petroleum leaseholder in North Dakota’s Bakken Shale field, rose to a record today as prices for oil from the field increased from recent lows.

Continental rose 7.1 percent to a record $88.83 at the close in New York.

Bakken oil closed at $92.20 a barrel, according to data compiled by Bloombeg. Prices have risen 30 percent since a partial shutdown at a refinery that processes the crude sent them as low as $71.17 a barrel on Feb. 10, Brian Lively, an analyst at Tudor Pickering Holt & Co. in Houston, said in an interview.

Lively rates Continental a “hold” and owns none of the stock.
