WPX works with Native American workers and mineral owners in both North Dakota and New Mexico where we have close business ties with the Three Affiliated Tribes and Navajo allottees.
Here in the San Juan Basin, the primary vendors we hire to support our drilling activity employ more than 800 people, approximately 40 percent of whom are Native American.
We’re grateful for these relationships and the critical role Native Americans play in helping develop new supplies of oil and natural gas.
Together, this kind of work results in lower energy costs for everyone. Lower prices saved drivers $30 billion at the gas pump last year and roughly $1,300 per family in cheaper heating, cooling and utility costs in 2015.
