Emissions Management at WPX

We know methane is a greenhouse gas with a higher global warming potential than carbon dioxide. Methane is the primary component of natural gas and is produced along with oil in all of our basins.

WPX is committed to the responsible management of methane emissions and complying with environmental regulations.

We’re in business to sell natural gas and oil, so it’s in our best interest to attempt to minimize methane emissions and eliminate waste.

Decisions as simple as selecting a tank hatch gasket that doesn’t leak or lasts longer can reduce methane emissions.

Buying tanks, valves and equipment that can handle the appropriate range of operating pressures and minimizes venting also reduces methane emissions.

WPX also has implemented other programs and operational practices to further our methane reductions efforts. To see a list of specific actions we’re taking, please read our recent report.
