OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A judge in Oklahoma is ordering the chairman and CEO of energy giant Continental Resources Inc. to pay his wife nearly $1 billion as part of a divorce settlement.

The judge’s order, released Monday, directs Harold Hamm to pay his ex-wife, Sue Ann Hamm, $995.4 million for "property division alimony."

Harold Hamm was directed to pay $322 million to Sue Ann Hamm by the end of the year, with minimum payments of $7 million each month starting in January to pay off the remaining balance.

The couple has been married since 1988. Sue Ann Hamm filed for divorce in 2012.

The judge ordered transcripts in the divorce case to be sealed.
