John Argo with Continental Resources Inc. is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
Argo joined the Oklahoma City-based independent oil producer in 2014 after working for HighMount Exploration & Production LLC. He was named vice president of business development at Continental Resources in 2018.
Since the promotion, Argo has helped Continental Resources reduce its debt by more than $1 billion and form an unprecedented strategic minerals relationship with leading Canadian royalty corporation Franco-Nevada Corp.
He attributes such lofty accomplishments to determination, drive and the power of teamwork.
“We are better together than as individuals,” Argo says. “On any given project or opportunity, I attempt to leverage the appropriate strengths of the optimum team members.”
Argo began his career as a Dominion E&P Inc. engineer after graduating from the University of Oklahoma with a bachelor’s degree in petroleum engineering. He also graduated with the inaugural cohort of OU’s Executive MBA in Energy in 2015.
