WPX Energy specializes in producing natural gas, natural gas liquids and oil from non-conventional resources such as tight-sands and shale formations, as well as from coalbed methane reserves. We’re in the best natural gas, natural gas liquids and oil basins in the nation: the Piceance, the Marcellus and the Bakken.
WPX is based in Tulsa, Okla., with operations and interests in Colorado, New Mexico, North Dakota, Pennsylvania and Wyoming, as well as Argentina and Colombia. In addition to our exploration and development activities, we also engage in natural gas sales and marketing.
WPX Energy, previously a wholly owned subsidiary of Williams, became a separate, independent company as of year end 2011. After our first full year of operation, we are already a strong, mid-sized independent with the goal of becoming a super-independent in the next 10 years.
