With a net worth of $12.4 billion, Continental Resources Chairman and CEO Harold Hamm has surpassed BOK Financial Chairman George Kaiser as the richest Oklahoman, according to Forbes magazine's list of 400 Richest Americans released Monday.

Hamm, 67, is ranked No. 33 on the Forbes 400 list, up from No. 35 on last year's list. Hamm grew his fortune by $2.7 billion from last year, thanks to his large stake in Continental Resources. Hamm's second wife Sue Ann filed for divorce last year. The proceedings are ongoing, but could put a substantial dent in Hamm's net worth.

Kaiser, 71, is ranked as the second wealthiest Oklahoman at No. 40 on this year's list with a net worth of $10 billion, down from No. 33 in 2012.

Oklahoma native and Oklahoma State donor T. Boone Pickens dropped off the Forbes 400 list this year with an estimated net worth of $950 million. The oilman's net worth fell under the $1 billion mark for the first time since 2005 this year, according to Forbes.

“Don't worry,” Pickens quipped on Twitter Monday in reaction to the Forbes rankings. “At $950 million, I'm doing fine.”
