Natural Gas Benefits


WPX Energy produces more natural gas in Colorado than anyone else in the state and we do it 20 to 30 percent more efficiently than our peers. Our wells produce enough to fuel 3 million homes per day.

Our primary production is in the Piceance Basin where we have 216,000 net acres in Garfield and Rio Blanco counties. We operate more than 4,100 natural gas wells in this area – the first of which went online in 1986.

We have two offices in Colorado – Denver and Parachute. These locations employ
425 people. In addition to the Piceance Basin, we also have wells in La Plata County,

In early 2013, we made a natural gas discovery in the Niobrara formation, where we plan to drill four more wells in 2013.
