Harold Hamm Named One Of TIME Magazine's TIME 100

OKLAHOMA CITY, April 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TIME named Harold Hamm, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Continental Resources, Inc. (NYSE: CLR), to the 2012 TIME 100, the magazine's annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. The full list and related tributes appear in the April 30 issue of TIME, available on newsstands on Thursday, April 19, and now at time.com/time100.

The list, now in its ninth year, recognizes the activism, innovation and achievement of the world's most influential individuals. As TIME Managing Editor Richard Stengel has said of the list in the past, "The TIME 100 is not a list of the most powerful people in the world, it's not a list of the smartest people in the world, it's a list of the most influential people in the world. They're scientists, they're thinkers, they're philosophers, they're leaders, they're icons, they're artists, they're visionaries. People who are using their ideas, their visions, their actions to transform the world and have an effect on a multitude of people."

Mr. Hamm and his company have pioneered the development of America's premier oil play—the Bakken Play of North Dakota and Montana. With an estimated 24 billion barrels of oil, the Bakken is the nation's largest oil discovery in more than 40 years.

"The TIME 100 recognition is a great honor not only for myself, but also for the entire Continental Resources team," Mr. Hamm said. "As we work to significantly increase our nation's energy supply, this distinction adds to the momentum of our mission to help make America energy independent within the next decade."

Mr. Hamm's success is the quintessential "only in America" story. Growing up in rural Oklahoma, he was the last of 13 children born to sharecroppers who never owned land. He went to work in the oil fields as a teenager and established Continental Resources in 1967 at the age of 21. What began as a one-man, one-pump-truck operation, is now a Top 10 producer of petroleum liquids in the United States.

In addition to leading Continental Resources, Mr. Hamm is Energy Adviser to Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney and Founder and Chairman of the Domestic Energy Producers Alliance, a collaboration of independent energy producers and associations from across America.
