We’ve been honored by the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission a dozen times over the past five years. These awards recognize WPX for using new technology, our drilling efficiencies and the safety training we conduct. The agency also honored us for our reclamation and water management practices.
By doing things the right way, we hope to achieve the right results. We’ve earned eight awards in the San Juan Basin alone for protecting wildlife and the environment. Two of those awards came in 2012 from the U.S. Forest Service and the New Mexico Bureau of Land Management.
We embrace the need to work hard, to follow the rules that govern our business and to protect the environment. If we should miss the mark, we’ll learn from it.
We will champion a proactive safety culture and work to continuously improve the structure that helps make it happen.
Reaching out to build relationships and trust is important to us.
By building our own multimillion-dollar water management plants in Rulison and Parachute, Colo., we’ve eliminated more than 90,000 truckloads of water hauling. Plus all the dust, gravel and noise associated with transporting that water. In the process, we’ve reduced air emissions by 1,200 tons per year, reduced costs by 60 percent and water hauling traffic by 95 percent. The Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission awarded us for our efforts – the seventh time we’ve been so honored.
WPX has been recognized by the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission for our commitment to protecting air quality. But we won't rest on yesterday. Our company culture is built on continuous improvement. See what we're doing today to get even better as we mitigate methane emissions.NEW REPORT
