DRILLING

Our operations in the San Juan Basin are located in four counties: San Juan, Rio Arriba, Sandoval and La Plata, Colo. Locally, we operate 945 wells and hold a joint ownership interest in another 2,300 wells.

Most of these operations are natural gas, along with a new oil discovery in the Gallup play. We sold our one-millionth net barrel of oil from the Gallup play in September 2014 — less than 18 months after initial production.

For the first half of 2015, WPX completed 30 new wells in the San Juan Gallup oil play. Previously, WPX completed 47 Gallup wells in 2014 and 13 in 2013.

In August 2015, we also acquired another company that gave us entry into the Permian Basin in the southeast part of the state. Our Permian operations primarily produce oil and are concentrated in Eddy and Lea counties.

We have four drilling rigs deployed in the Permian Basin and two rigs in the San Juan Basin.
