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.

Our 2016 United Way campaign is officially under way. CEO Rick Muncrief said, "I can’t think of better people to work with than our friends and colleagues across WPX. Our United Way giving is one of the reasons why. Our continued level of giving shows me that our people have tremendous capacity to work through tough times and to stay focused on the things that matter most, including helping others who have significant, serious needs."
