Making A Meaningful Impact

At WPX, we do a lot more than drill oil wells. One of our core values is community involvement.

That’s why our company and our employees build sidewalks, clean school buses, plant trees, support emergency responders and provide resources for educational advancement.

This week we also partnered with the Rio Del Sol Kiwanis Club on their annual clothes for kids event. The Farmington Daily Times captured the story and a video.

More than 300 children benefited from this year’s event according to chairwoman Glenda Fox.

While the economics in the oil patch remain tight, WPX stepped up to provide financial support and our people were directly involved in volunteerism. Regulatory Specialist Andrea Felix was highlighted in the media coverage.

Our industry – by virtue of the amount of oil and gas we provide – also helps keep more money in people’s pockets.

A recent study by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce determined what would happen if America ever decided to ban hydraulic fracturing. It’s not a pretty picture.

By 2022, 14.8 million jobs could be lost, gasoline prices and electricity prices could almost double, and each American family could see their cost of living increase by almost $4,000.

For the good of everyone, we’ll keep doin’ good and doing everything we can to keep affordable, reliable supplies of oil and gas flowing into the economy.
