Walter Echols hails from Honduras. He’s been with WPX for over a year, starting as a contractor and officially joining the company as an employee in July.
He came to the United States in 1988 and later pursued information technology and accounting in college.
At WPX, he works in one of our accounting groups that calculates the royalties we pay to the federal government for our natural gas production in Wyoming’s Powder River Basin.
“I’ve changed career paths over my life. It took me a while to figure out what I really wanted to do,” Walter says.
“Today, I’m very pleased. I like the team environment we have at WPX. Everyone is very willing to help me if I have a question in my work.”
