Berry continued: "Our first quarter results underscore the capital efficient and low cost nature of our assets. Continental is financially strong with ample liquidity and no imminent debt maturities. We remain keenly focused on preserving both our assets and shareholder value for better commodity prices in the future. I want to thank our teams for their safe, efficient and best-in-class operations during this time. We look towards a bright future for both Continental and the US oil and natural gas industry."
