Marathon sees expanded success in Bakken

Published: Dec 14 2018
Marathon Oil said it is achieving success as it aims to expand its position in North Dakota's Bakken shale.

The Houston-based oil producer said it is producing strong results at a new, four-well site in North Dakota's Dunn County that's known as the Ajax area of the shale basin. The initial results released an average per well of 2,400 barrels of oil equivalent a day.

Marathon is considered one of the top players in the Bakken, which is rebounding after the recent oil bust took a lot of activity out of the region.
