We specialize in producing oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGL) from non-conventional resources such as tight-sands and shale formations, as well as from coalbed methane reserves.
WPX has a long-standing presence in New Mexico that goes back more than three decades. Our CEO Rick Muncrief also lived and worked in the Farmington area for more than a decade during his time with ConocoPhillips, Burlington Resources and their predecessor companies.
Rick joined WPX in May 2014 and has visited our new Mexico operations on multiple occasions.
Says Rick, “I believe we’re here to help others. We can certainly do that through our careers, as well as our personal interests.
“An eye-opening moment for me was when I served on the board of directors at a shelter in Farmington that cares for abused and neglected children. That was a very sobering experience where I saw how tough it is for so many youth who didn’t even have food at home.”
WPX is active in New Mexico communities, providing support for emergency responders and a variety of youth activities.
