ENID, Oklahoma -- More than 200 jobs are set to be relocated from Enid to Oklahoma City after a company decided to move its headquarters to the current Devon Energy building.
Officials with Continental Resources said the relocation is part of a strategy to triple the company's size in five years.
The company expects to be fully relocated towards the end of 2012.
"We're expanding rapidly as a leading oil and gas company," said Harold Hamm, Chairman and CEO. "With our growth plans in the largest oil play in the U.S., the Bakken Shale in the Williston Basin, the timing is right to locate our corporate headquarters in Oklahoma City. As we look toward the future, Oklahoma City offers a vibrant base to support our aggressive growth strategy, while retaining our strong commitment to the state of Oklahoma."
Continental Resources currently has about 250 full-time employees in Enid.
