WPX Energy

We are an independent natural gas and oil exploration and production company engaged in the exploitation and development of long-life unconventional properties. We have built a geographically diverse portfolio of natural gas and oil reserves through organic development and strategic acquisitions.

WPX Energy is based in Tulsa, Okla., with operations and interests in Colorado, New Mexico, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Wyoming, Argentina and Colombia.

Over the past five years, we have participated in the development of more than 7,000 new natural gas wells. Today, we produce enough natural gas to meet the energy needs of 6 million homes per day.

WPX Energy was a wholly owned subsidiary of Williams with nearly 30 years experience in the industry. We became a separate, independent company at year-end 2011.
