Anadarko focuses on liquids-rich opportunities in West Texas.


An Emerging Giant in West Texas Shale

Anadarko has been active in West Texas for more than 30 years. The Delaware Basin oil opportunity is a great example of innovation and technology at work, as the company focuses on this emerging oil opportunity with estimated recoverable resources at more than 3 billion BOE in the Wolfcamp Shale alone.

Premier Position in the Delaware Basin

Anadarko’s Delaware Basin position is nearly 600,000 gross acres and holds 8,500 feet of stacked oil potential. In 2017, Anadarko advanced several foundational components of the Delaware Basin value chain, securing local-sourced sand, basin takeaway capacity and making significant progress on the extensive infrastructure backbone. We continue to core-up our acreage position for operational efficiency, and have completed more than 35,000 acres of trades over the last few years.

An Onshore Mega Project

Anadarko midstream and Western Gas plan to place into service an additional 400 MMcf/d of gas processing and 120,000 BOPD of oil treating capacity by the end of 2018. These enhancements are the catalysts for producing wells in their optimal state and reduce our environmental footprint by eliminating storage tanks and associated equipment, lowering operating costs and reducing truck traffic and associated emissions.
