PERMIAN BASIN

WPX has a $2.75 billion investment in the Permian Basin where we have decades of drilling inventory across stacked pay intervals.

 

Williston Basin

We are producing from the Bakken and Three Forks formations on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation. Roughly 85 percent of the production stream is oil.

SAN JUAN BASIN

This was our very first basin. It's one of the most prolific natural gas plays around. We're also developing an oil discovery there in the Gallup Sandstone formation.

About Us

WPX Energy is a tremendous turnaround story. Since mid 2014, we have reached more than $5 billion in transactions to transform the company under the leadership of CEO Rick Muncrief.

Today, we are one of the newest players in the oil-rich Permian Basin. We have quickly amassed more than 100,000 net acres in the Delaware portion of the play and more than 5,500 gross drillable locations across stacked pay intervals. This represents decades of drilling opportunities.

WPX also has core acreage in North Dakota’s Williston Basin and New Mexico’s San Juan Basin, where we have been active in the Gallup oil play. WPX posted 2Q 2016 oil production averaging 41,900 barrels per day. Total liquids volumes including NGL accounted for 60 percent of 2Q 2016 production.

Based on current operating conditions, WPX believes it has ample cash on-hand to accelerate drilling and completion activities if conditions warrant, for midstream infrastructure development in the Delaware Basin, and to fully fund planned operating capital expenditures in excess of operating cash flows through 2018.

WPX recently increased its estimated ultimate recoveries (EURs) for its Delaware wells to 900 Mboe, up 34 percent from its acquisition type curve of 670 Mboe.

This is today's forecast high in Killdeer, North Dakota – home to our main office in the Williston Basin where we operate more than 200 oil wells. Thanks to everyone who's working hard on the front lines and braving the cold to keep American-made oil and gas flowing.
