U.S. Operations

Whiting Petroleum Corporation is a Denver-based independent oil and gas company that explores for, develops, acquires and produces crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids primarily in the Rocky Mountain and Permian Basin regions of the United States. The Company’s largest projects are in the Bakken and Three Forks plays in North Dakota, the Redtail Niobrara play in Colorado and its enhanced oil recovery field in Texas.

We are focused primarily on organic drilling activity, both on grassroots oil plays and on the development of previously acquired properties, and specifically on projects that we believe provide the opportunity for repeatable success and meaningful production growth.
