Harold Hamm fires back after call to slow oil development in North Dakota Published: January 9, 2014

Continental Resources CEO Harold Hamm fired back this week to comments made by the chairman of North Dakota’s Republican party calling for the oil industry to take a “moderated approach” to development.

Hamm, whose company was a pioneer in the use of horizontal drilling that fueled the Bakken oil boom, said he felt compelled to respond to statements made by Robert Harms in news coverage in the aftermath of the explosive train derailment near Casselton.
“It looks to me like he’s saying we shouldn’t overreact to these situations, but that’s exactly what he’s doing,” Hamm said in an interview with Forum News Service this week.
