Through our innovative water management practices in the piceance, we’ve been able to Treat and reuse the same water for five years.

SPILL PREVENTION: 99.9% SUCCESS RATE

WPX typically handles more water in the Piceance Basin than anywhere else we operate. This involves water and fluids for drilling and fracking, as well as produced water from more than 4,700 natural gas wells. So how are we doing? The quantitative data tells the compelling story behind a 99.9% success rate.

WATER RECYCLING

We support the reuse and recycling of water used in oil and gas operations where possible. In fact, we have an economic incentive to recycle the water we use to frack wells.

REDUCING THE NEED FOR FRESH WATER

When WPX Energy developed 87 natural gas wells from 14 pads at Hayes Gulch east of Parachute, Colo., it made use of one centralized facility to hydraulically fracture all the wells from a single location, rather than setting up fracking operations on each pad.

Caring for Water Quality

We’re passionate about what we do and how we do it. The Bureau of Land Management and the New Mexico Game and Fish Commission concur. Both recognized our contributions to fish habitat and water quality improvements in the San Juan River.
