The Bakken is a sequence of sand and shale layers in the Williston Basin, which stretches across portions of eastern Montana, western North Dakota, and Canada. At year-end 2020, we had approximately 610,000 net acres in the Bakken, which includes about 426,000 net mineral acres and approximately 184,000 net leasehold acres.
During 2020, net production averaged 78 MBOED. There were 29 operated wells brought online during 2020, bringing the total to more than 840 operated wells online at year-end. Bakken employees have led the way in engaging with stakeholders at all levels — from township to federal. They have developed authentic relationships in the community where they live and work by demonstrating their commitment to being good neighbors. Whether it’s how they work to ensure safe and responsible operations or their commitment to environmental stewardship, the company’s SPIRIT Values guide our people’s actions every day.
