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.

    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.
