WPX plans to deploy two rigs in the San Juan Basin operations throughout 2015. We’ve employed Aztec Drilling exclusively since 2009, but we have previously used D&J Drilling and United Drilling.
In the state’s Permian Basin, WPX has four rigs deployed through vendors such as Helmerich and Payne, Silver Oak and Bison.
Our 2015 capital program includes approximately $400 million for developing new oil wells in the San Juan Basin and the Permian Basin.
These investments will help further develop our Gallup oil discovery from 2013 and our newly acquired (August 2015) properties in the state’s Permian Basin.
