Red River Units


The Red River Units, located in Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota, produce crude oil and natural gas from the Red River “B” formation, a thin, continuous dolomite formation at depths of 8,000 to 9,500 feet. Our units comprise a portion of the Cedar Hills Field, the 7th largest onshore field in the lower 48 United States, ranked by liquid proved reserves. Continental has a one-rig drilling program in the enhanced oil-recovery units and is focused on extending the peak performance life of the field, primarily by increasing our water and air injection capabilities.
