17:21 EDTCLRContinental Resources increases proved reserves 54% to 785 MMBoe
Continental Resources increased its year-end 2012 proved reserves to 785 MMBoe, or million barrels of oil equivalent, a year-over-year gain of 54%. With the 2012 increase, Continental has grown proved reserves at a compound annual growth rate of 45% since year-end 2009. Continental's 2012 proved reserves had a net present value discounted at 10% of $13.3B, a 45% increase over the PV-10 of $9.2B for proved reserves at year-end 2011. Proved reserves growth in 2012 primarily reflected strong production growth in the Bakken play of North Dakota and Montana, which Continental believes is the nation's premier oil play. Continental is the largest producer and leaseholder in the Bakken, with approximately 1.1M net acres. The company has also accelerated production growth in its South Central Oklahoma Oil Province, or SCOOP, an oil- and liquids-rich play in Oklahoma. 39% of Continental's total 2012 proved reserves, or 309.0 MMBoe, were proved developed producing, compared with 40% of year-end 2011 proved reserves. Crude oil reserves represented 72% of 2012 total proved reserves, a significant increase over year-end 2011, when crude oil accounted for 64% of the company's 508 MMBoe in proved reserves. The higher percentage of crude oil proved reserves in 2012 was accomplished despite two crude-oil concentrated divestitures. Continental currently operates 85% of its total proved reserves, compared with 86% at year-end 2011.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Shell (RDS.A, RDS.B) CEO Ben van Beurden said Opec's decision not to cut production has sent a "powerful signal... to shale oil companies as well as their financiers that they cannot forget the price risk. The industry will remember it for some time." The CEO noted that industry efforts to boost efficiency and cut costs should keep production going for "a while to come... until the sweet spots start running out." Publicly traded companies in the space include Chevron (CVX), Anadarko Petroleum (APC), Exxon Mobil (XOM), BP (BP), Marathon Oil (MRO), BHP Billiton (BHP), ConocoPhillips (COP), Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD), EOG Resources (EOG), Concho (CXO), Whiting Petroleum (WLL), and Continental Resources (CLR).
