Whiting Petroleum Corporation is one of the largest independent exploration and production companies in the USA with an oil focused asset base. We control one of the largest acreage positions in the Bakken/Three Forks resource play in the Williston Basin of North Dakota and Montana with 774,000 net acres in the oil productive sweet spots of the basin encompassing over 7,500 future gross drilling locations.
