Upstream - Colorado


Anadarko is among the largest producers of oil and clean-burning natural gas in the state.

1.5BBOERecoverable Resources
on its Acreage

A Premier Asset

Anadarko is committed to Colorado's long-term success, having invested about $10 billion in capital from 2010 to 2015 and employing more than 1,000 men and women with offices in Denver, Platteville and Evans.

Wattenberg Field – Northeastern Colorado

Anadarko holds approximately 350,000 net acres in the Wattenberg field and estimates it holds approximately 1.5 billion BOE of recoverable resources on its acreage, with an additional potential through optimized spacing. The Wattenberg field has all the ingredients of a premier asset: established infrastructure, experienced personnel, more than 30 years of operating history, a growing resource opportunity and mineral-interest ownership via the Union Pacific Railroad Land Grant.

Giving at Anadarko is powered by people who care deeply about the communities we call home. In many ways, it’s more than giving; it’s making an investment in a future we all share. In 2015 alone, Anadarko and its employees supported more than 110 Colorado non-profit organizations, including United Way, Junior Achievement and Habitat for Humanity.

“The technological advances made by our industry are often overlooked. We have made significant investments in the Wattenberg field and throughout Colorado to enhance our operations -- less surface impact, fewer trucks on the road, remote-monitoring capabilities and more. These improvements lead to increased safety, while reducing our footprint and increasing production of the resources that are fundamental to modern life.”
