Whiting Petroleum is an energy company based in Denver, Colorado. The Company owns and operates oil and gas properties primarily in the Permian Basin, Rocky Mountain, Mid-Continent, Gulf Coast and Michigan regions of the United States.

During the company’s breakout session, management was asked the following questions:

  • What are your plans for your Michigan assets?
  • Some of your competitors are developing the deeper Three Forks. Do you plan on developing this as well?
  • Some of your Lewis & Clark wells came in sub-optimal, do you plan on doing any recompletions?
  • Have you found a point of diminishing returns with your frac stages (Whiting is currently using 30-stage fracs on a lot of wells)?
  • Do you see a return on some of the advanced science/geophysics you’re using?
  • What do you think about the U.S. of CO2 in wells?
  • Do you have wells shut-in currently that could contribute to a surge in production?
  • You guys have a large land position in Big Island, why isn’t it getting more attention?
  • In your conference call you mentioned bringing a partner into your Starbucks prospect, do you still plan on bringing someone in
  • What do we know about the Scallion zone (above upper Bakken)?
