As of December 31, 2015, the company had 2.9 trillion cubic feet of natural gas equivalent of estimated proved reserves, of which 52% was natural gas and the remainder was petroleum and natural gas liquids.
In 2015, production averaged 985 million cubic feet of natural gas equivalent per day, 55% of which came from the Permian Basin and 44% of which came from the Rocky Mountains, particularly the Cana–Woodford in western Oklahoma.
The company was founded in 2002. The company was a corporate spin-off of Helmerich & Payne, which sought to separate its exploration and production business from its drilling business. In October 2002, shareholders of Helmerich & Payne received shares in Cimarex.
In 2005, the company acquired Magnum Hunter Resources in a $1.5 billion transaction.
In 2012, the company sold assets in Texas for $294 million.
