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. From the Bakken and Three Forks resource play we have consistently been a top oil producer in North Dakota and across the Williston Basin. In the new and large oil prone sweet spot of the eastern DJ Basin of Colorado, we have over 132,000 net acres. Similar to our Bakken and Three Forks acreage position, we are rapidly growing our Niobrara A, B, C and Codell interval production and have an estimated 6,700 future gross drilling locations in these zones. Whiting is headquartered in Denver, Colorado where we operate one of the few in-house geoscience core labs in the oil and gas industry.
