Bakken's top dog wants to snuff out gas flaring

Continental Resources Inc., the top producer in the Bakken Shale, plans to reduce natural gas flaring from its well sites to "as close to zero percent flaring as possible," the company said yesterday. That announcement may have been lost behind the company's towering profit numbers. But buried in its annual report, Continental said it has halved its 2011 rate of flaring, a common practice in the Bakken Shale that has lit up environmentalists' radar.
