oil & gas

IT’S WHAT WE DO.

About Us

WPX Energy specializes in producing natural gas, oil and natural gas liquids from non-conventional resources such as tight-sands and shale formations. We’re in some of the best resource plays in the nation: North Dakota’s Williston Basin, New Mexico’s San Juan Basin and Colorado’s Piceance Basin.

Our total proved reserves at Dec. 31, 2014, were 727 million barrels of oil equivalent, or 4.36 trillion cubic feet equivalent. Oil reserves increased 27 percent over the prior year to 131 million barrels. WPX replaced its oil production at a rate of 421 percent, excluding divestitures. 

Year-end 2014 proved reserves reflect 72 percent natural gas, 18 percent crude oil and 10 percent natural gas liquids, compared with 76 percent natural gas, 13 percent crude oil and 11 percent NGL at year-end 2013.

WPX is based in Tulsa, Okla., and employs approximately 1,000 people across our operations. WPX CEO Rick Muncrief joined the company last year. He is a petroleum engineer who has worked in the Rockies for most of his career, including 27 years with ConocoPhillips, Burlington Resources and their predecessors.

Net cash provided by operating activities for full-year 2014 was approximately $1.07 billion, including $291 million in the fourth quarter. Net cash for 2014 increased 68 percent vs. $636 million in 2013.

WPX has a long history of innovation and stakeholder engagement, recognized through more than 40 local, state, federal and industry awards. Last year we received 5 awards for ethics, exploration, air quality, best practices and wildlife habitat improvements.

WPX employees recently supported the North Dakota Oil Can Pick up the Patch! event in Killdeer, N.D. About 38 volunteers from WPX and other companies covered 10 miles along Highway 22 on both sides to pick up 125 bags of trash. The event serves as a way for the energy industry to show support for the community by removing litter and encouraging residents and workers to keep the roadways clean. WPX is a member of the event's sponsor, the North Dakota Petroleum Council.
