A Denver energy company said it wants to sell assets in north North Dakota to concentrate on its Texas operations.

SM Energy Company (NYSE: SM) said it's retained Houston investment bank Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co. to run a bid process to sell SM Energy's Divide County area assets in the Williston Basin in northern North Dakota.

Last week, SM Energy said it was selling some of its non-operated Eagle Ford oil assets near Dallas for $800 million so it could concentrate more operations in the Midland Basin in West Texas.
