Balanced Assets

Geographic diversity and a broad suite of assets provide flexibility in how WPX can grow and be managed well into the future.


Proven Partners

Our landowners are partners. We stay in touch every step of the way, openly discussing our plans before and during the drilling process. Even after the rig is gone, we’ll be around.

Our Operational Philosophy

We are always seeking ways to increase production, drive down costs and improve efficiencies while maintaining the highest safety and environmental standards. Our operational philosophy is to innovate, improve and then improve on that again.


Strength Through Innovation

Working with our partners and service providers to develop innovative solutions is a central component of our business.

Efficiency Model

WPX management, field personnel and community representatives talk about the phenomenal success of the Piceance, the efficiency model we’ve built and how it can be replicated. 

WPX Equals Strength

Our balance sheet, assets, people, safety record, environmental stewardship and innovations are a few of the things that set WPX apart.
