Kodiak Oil and Gas acquired North Plains Energy February 2012

Whiting Petroleum acquired Kodiak Oil and Gas effective December 8, 2014

as with all acquisitions, it is assumed everything pretty much stays the same, operations wise.....

this is the contact information I was provided, as with ALL operators, they really do not like to confirm or deny anything on the phone.....go figure.






Whiting Petroleum Corporation

1700 Broadway, Suit 2300

Denver, CO  80290

I hope this will help in some way to you, good luck   Brian...

We have numerous wells leased to Kodiak and just discovered the Whiting acquisition. We cannot get a response from Whiting. Is anyone else having problems with Whiting or does anyone have any knowledge of the lease transfers?

Here are my two cents for all they are worth, as I am sick and tired of these OIL wannabe companies LYING, CHEATING, STEALING, COERCING, and sending all of our oil over to the MIDDLE EAST, and the Bullshit war, based on all lies...People, please HOLD all of your Interests, do not lease, and call the SHERIFF of your county if you have any problems, or the Bureau of Criminal Investigation in North Dakota, as there has been the shadiest shit I have ever seen in my life happen in our once GREAT STATE of NORTH DAKOTA.   Call the Governor, and tell him to get out of bed with Lynn Helms and the Oil Butt Pirates.  Thank you and GOD BLESS....Jody

Gary & Charles,
Thank you both for years of thoughtful comments. I applaude your appreciate for those of us whose minerals have been owned for decades. From a great grand daughter of Norwegian immigrants who homesteaded the land and busted their asses.

Gary: Thanks for your input.  Very well said.  Hope others heed your advice. You probably saved others lots of money and headaches.

Hutch has said it all!  I have never lived in ND, but my Grandfather had the foresight to hold mineral rights many years ago. It is now his legacy.

Let's kill this dialog and move on.  This is not the place for solicitation.  It is for information.

Wonderful people of the Bakken. I don't know why you are jumping on me. All I am trying to say, again is, I don't care if you accept my business or not. I am going out of my way to advise you as an expert in my field. Everyone is taking this out of proportion and I don't appreciate it. I just noticed that no one wants to sell based on my conversations. That is fine. Again the only point I am making is, I hope what ever decisions you are making are the right ones. People up here are tough. I'm glad, you need to be. I will be praying for you, just stop blaming me for trying to help you.
