The Future of Energy — A Crude Reality?

Tuesday, 15 Mar 2011 | 8:31 PM ET
Crude Reality?
Cramer examines the road ahead for energy, with Harold Hamm, Continental Resources chairman/CEO.

America could kick its addition to foreign oil, Cramer said Tuesday, if it drilled for crude in the USA.

The U.S. has an abundance of oil, the "Mad Money" host said. Take the Bakken Shale, for example, which is located in the Williston Basin that stretches from Montana to North Dakota along the Canadian border. A 24 billion barrel discovery, the U.S. Geological Survey called it the "largest continuous oil accumulation" it has ever assessed. Continental Resources has 840,000 acres in the Bakken and it's currently the number one producer in the area.

To examine the future of energy in the U.S. and how the Bakken could be utilized, Cramer spoke with Continental Resources CEO Harold Hamm. Watch the video to see the full conversation.

A previous version of this story misstated Continental Resources' total acreage in the Bakken shale.
