Upstream - Colorado


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

2+BBOERecoverable Resources

A Premier Asset

Anadarko is committed to Colorado's long-term success, having invested more than $10 billion in capital over the last five years and employing approximately 1,100 men and women with offices in Denver, Platteville and Evans.

DJ Basin – Northeastern Colorado

Anadarko holds approximately 400,000 net acres in the DJ Basin development area and estimates it holds more than 2 billion BOE of recoverable resources on its acreage. The DJ Basin 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.

The DJ Basin is a focus area for Anadarko and a key component in the company's growth objectives. Already producing about a quarter-million BOE per day, Anadarko expects to increase production to more than 400,000 BOE per day by 2021. That's enough energy to meet the needs of more than 3 million average American households each day.

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. Anadarko and its employees support more than 110 Colorado non-profit organizations, including United Way, Junior Achievement and Habitat for Humanity.

“We leverage technology and innovation to enhance safety, minimize our environmental footprint and reduce our impacts in the communities where we operate. As an example of our commitment to be a responsible operator in the DJ Basin, we have invested heavily in pipeline technology and infrastructure to gather oil and deliver water to our operations. This investment alone has significantly reduced the amount of trucks on the roads by the thousands every day, thereby improving safety on local roads and highways and reducing the emissions associated with truck traffic.”
