we care about building a good record everywhere we work.

Air

WPX is expanding its experience with 100% natural gas-fueled drilling, which replaces diesel fuel in certain instances. We’re working with a vendor to supply LNG (liquefied natural gas) for drilling activity in areas of New Mexico’s San Juan Basin. This gives us another option for using clean-burning natural gas in our drilling operations in addition to field gas from our existing wells.

Water

In Colorado, we recycle nearly 100% of our water and have won environmental awards for those efforts. We’ve made multimillion-dollar investments in infrastructure and technology at our water treatment facilities, because it’s the right thing to do. In the process we’ve eliminated hauling 90,000 truckloads of water per year.
