Continental Resources, Inc. recently announced its first-ever sale of Bakken oil specifically for delivery overseas. Continental Resources has sold 1,005,000 barrels of crude oil for November delivery to Atlantic Trading and Marketing (“ATMI”), which intends to export the oil to China.

“This is a historic day for Continental and begins a new chapter in our long-term strategy to establish multiple international markets for American light sweet oil,” said Harold Hamm, Continental’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “This new normal was created by the American shale energy revolution and the lifting of the 1977 crude oil export ban. We expect to see many similar industry transactions in coming months and years.”

Continental Resources is a top 15 independent oil producer in the U.S. Lower 48 and a leader in America’s energy renaissance. Based in Oklahoma City, Continental is the largest leaseholder and one of the largest producers in the nation’s premier oil field, the Bakken play of North Dakota and Montana. The Company also has significant positions in Oklahoma, including its SCOOP Woodford, SCOOP Springer and SCOOP Sycamore discoveries and the STACK plays.

According to Continental Resources, the daily November sales transactions of 33,500 barrels-per-day, will take place in Cushing, Oklahoma. ATMI then plans to transport the oil for loading on tankers at Texas ports.

This export of crude oil overseas marks another chapter in a long story of creating an American energy market for the planet.

In December 2015 the U.S. lifted its ban on oil exports, allowing foreign sales to be transacted without a license. Oil exports have grown steadily in the past two years, primarily to foreign refineries configured specifically to process light sweet crude oil. “We recognized back in 2015, when we were working to lift the export ban,

A 26-year-old Rochester man was arrested in connection to a search warrant executed earlier this month.

Police responding to a report of a suspected drug transaction arrested Edward Gildersleve Monday at around 10:30 p.m. The call was to the 1500 block of North Broadway, in the parking lot of the shopping center near Silver Lake Foods and Burger King.

When an officer stopped a vehicle near the scene, they found Gildersleve inside and arrested him

after finding a bag containing 73 Tramadol pills without a prescription. Rochester Police Department Capt. John Sherwin noted that the car also smelled of marijuana.

About 450,000 children are in families reliant on social assistance to pay the bills, and the vast majority live below the poverty line, says a new report that hopes to prod more government action to alleviate child poverty.

The report from an anti-poverty coalition released today marks one of the first estimates of children living on government benefits.

The figure plays a key role in Campaign 2000’s annual report on child and family poverty, which suggests that increased, targeted federal spending on child care and housing could help lift hundreds of thousands of children out of poverty.

A new federal housing strategy is expected to meet most of what Campaign 2000 asks for in its annual report: a portable housing benefit paid directly to tenants to provide them with more housing options, an Indigenous housing strategy, a program to build new affordable housing and repair existing units and all of this aligned with an anti-poverty strategy to be released next year.

The Liberals are set to release their housing strategy on Wednesday, and it will set what the government believes are deep targets to cut homelessness and help families living in homes, apartments and condos they can barely afford.

Newly released census data show 1.7 million households were in “core housing need” in 2016, meaning they spent more than one-third of their before-tax income on housing that may be substandard or doesn’t meet their needs.

The government hopes to cut those numbers by 500,000 households through its strategy, with billions in new spending to help with affordable housing and with wider affordability in the housing market as well.
