Continental Resources, Inc. is an American oil and natural gas exploration and production company based in Oklahoma City. The company is currently headquartered in the building that was formerly known and occupied by Devon Energy
The company has large holdings in the Bakken formation tight oil area of North Dakota and Montana, the Niobara formation, the Anadarko Woodford Play of Oklahoma, and the Red River Units Play of North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, and Wyoming.
In 1990, the company was renamed Continental Resources. 
In 1995, Continental discovered what was later described as the Cedar Hills Field in North Dakota – the 7th largest onshore field in the lower 48 United States ranked by liquid proved reserves – and is the first to develop it exclusively through precision horizontal drilling.
In 2004, Continental completed the Robert Heuer 1-17R in Divide County, the 1st commercially successful well in the North Dakota Bakken to be both horizontally drilled and hydraulic fracture stimulated.
In 2008, Continental was the first to complete a horizontal well in the Three Forks zone.
In 2010, Continental introduced the ECO-Pad® drilling technique, whereby the company is able to drill 4 wells from 1 pad. This reduces the cost of drilling for oil and increase production output. 
In 2012, the company moved its headquarters to Oklahoma City.
