Industry Leading Operating Performance

Hess has earned a reputation for top-quartile performance in unconventional oil and gas production in the U.S. Our Onshore team is recognized as an industry-leading operator in a key U.S. shale play — the North Dakota Bakken and Three Forks formations — where we produce shale oil and gas. The culture in our Onshore operations is driven by Lean manufacturing principles and the search for continual improvement and efficiency.

  • Hess Bakken Operations

    Driving Value in the Bakken

    With its industry-leading acreage position, Hess’ Bakken operations in North Dakota are competitive with the best shale-oil plays in the world.  Through the application of Lean manufacturing techniques, our wells continue to be among the lowest cost and most productive in the Bakken. We have more drilling spacing units in the core of the play than any other operators.

  • Hess Bakken Midstream Operations

    Advantaged Bakken Midstream Infrastructure

    In 2015, Hess sold a 50 percent interest in our Bakken midstream assets and formed a joint venture with Global Infrastructure Partners, which resulted in total cash proceeds to Hess of $3 billion. The midstream joint venture assets include the Tioga Gas Plant, the Tioga Rail Terminal, a crude oil truck and pipeline terminal and the crude oil and natural gas gathering systems in North Dakota.  Hess retains operational control of the venture, which makes the joint venture one of the largest midstream operators in the Bakken.

We work hard to be a trusted energy partner to the communities where we do business and to the leaseholders who make our operations possible.

Gaining and holding the trust of our neighbors and partners is essential to our success. That is why we are committed to maintaining an open and honest dialogue with our leaseholders and landowners about what we do and how we do it.
