Northern Oil & Gas Inc. (NOG) is practically a new company less than a year after launching deals in the Permian Basin, North Dakota’s Bakken and Marcellus Shale that transformed the company.

More than $800 million in transactions effectively doubled the company’s size and scale, set up a strong balance sheet and accelerated a dividend program with footprints in three basins, said Northern’s president, Adam Dirlam, who leads the company’s M&A and capital allocation efforts.

“We’re certainly not done at NOG, but looking back on how we came together as a team and all of the hard work that was put in to get those deals over the finish line and implemented has been the most rewarding,” Dirlam said.
