(NYSE: KOG), an oil and gas exploration and production company with primary assets in the Williston Basin of North Dakota, today announces the closing of the previously announced acquisition of Williston Basin oil and gas producing properties and undeveloped leasehold.
Included in the acquisition are approximately 50,000 net leasehold acres and net production of approximately 3,600 barrels of oil equivalent per day located primarily in McKenzie and Williams Counties, N.D.
