2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

Business Description

Industry: Oil & Gas - E&P » Oil & Gas E&P
Compare:OJSCY, APC, APA, HRTPY, SGTZY » details
Traded in other countries:C5L.Germany, CTLR.USA,
Continental Resources Inc was originally formed in 1967. It is an independent crude oil and natural gas exploration and production company with properties in the North, South and East regions of the United States. The North region consists of properties north of Kansas and west of the Mississippi River and includes North Dakota Bakken, Montana Bakken, and the Red River units. The South region includes Kansas and all properties south of Kansas and west of the Mississippi River including various plays in the South Central Oklahoma Oil Province ("SCOOP"), Northwest Cana and Arkoma areas of Oklahoma. The East region is comprised of undeveloped leasehold acreage east of the Mississippi River. Its exploration drilling in North Dakota focused primarily on evaluating the productivity of the Lower Three Forks "benches" which include the Three Forks 2 ("TF2"), Three Forks 3 ("TF3"), and the Three Forks 4 ("TF4") reservoirs. Its crude oil production is sold to end users at major market centers. Other production not sold at major market centers is sold to select midstream marketing companies or crude oil refining companies at the lease. Crude oil sold at the lease is delivered directly onto the purchaser's truck and the sale is complete at that point. Its natural gas production is sold at various points along the market chain from wellhead to points downstream under monthly interruptible packaged-volume deals, short-term seasonal packages, and long-term multi-year acreage dedication type contracts. The crude oil and natural gas industry in the United States is subject to various types of regulation at the federal, state and local levels. Laws, rules, regulations, policies, and interpretations affecting its industry have been pervasive and are continuously reviewed by legislators and regulators, including the imposition of new or increased requirements on them and other industry participants.
