Part 2 of our Gallup Sandstone Series

It takes a multi-disciplinary team of people to discover hydrocarbons according to Steve Natali, senior vice president of exploration. And the Gallup Sandstone isn’t any old discovery. WPX has set an exit rate production goal of 3,400 barrels of oil equivalent per day by the end of the year.

Once the test wells began producing oil in our San Juan Basin oil discovery, some challenges came about – particularly paraffin buildup.


Gallup/Niobrara Updates

Please check here for the latest information on WPX’s discoveries in the San Juan Basin’s Gallup Sandstone and the Piceance Basin’s Niobrara Shale.


Niobrara Exploration

WPX originally announced the discovery well in January 2013. Now we’re working to better assess the resource play and identify ways to reduce drilling and completion costs while optimizing ultimate recovery. 


Balanced Opportunities

Our strategy is based on the oil and gas assets we currently have “under the hood.” Take a closer look at the three core areas where we’re investing.
