Anadarko Petroleum Corporation has closed or signed agreements to monetize approximately $1.3 billion of assets since the beginning of the year. The monetizations include the forward sale of future royalty income from its natural soda ash interest, the divestiture of its East Chalk asset, and the sale of its interest in the Maverick Basin gathering system.

"These monetizations continue our track record of actively managing our portfolio," said Anadarko Chairman, President and CEO Al Walker. "Consistent with that, we have identified other significant asset monetization opportunities that we will continue to actively pursue during the year. Our actions to date, which include significantly lowering our 2016 capital spending, improving our cost structure, sharply reducing the dividend and monetizing assets, continue to demonstrate our commitment to financial discipline and managing our portfolio in a prudent manner, while investing within cash inflows and reducing net debt, without the need to issue equity."

On Feb. 23, 2016, Anadarko closed an agreement, under which it sold a portion of its future royalties associated with existing soda ash and coal leases in Sweetwater County, Wyo., to a third party for $420 million. On Feb. 10, 2016, Anadarko signed a sales agreement with an affiliate of Zarvona Energy LLC, to divest Anadarko's interest in the East Chalk area, primarily located in Tyler and Jasper counties, Texas, for approximately $105 million. The transaction is expected to close early in the second quarter of 2016, subject to applicable regulatory approvals and other contractual conditions. Anadarko also announced an agreement with Western Gas Partners, LP, whereby WES will acquire a 100-percent interest in Springfield Pipeline LLC, from Anadarko for $750 million. Springfield's sole asset is a 50.1-percent interest in the Maverick Basin gathering system, located in Dimmit, La Salle, Maverick and Webb counties in South Texas. The transaction is expected to close by March 15, 2016, subject to applicable regulatory approvals and other contractual conditions.

Anadarko Petroleum Corporation's mission is to deliver a competitive and sustainable rate of return to shareholders by exploring for, acquiring and developing oil and natural gas resources vital to the world's health and welfare. As of year-end 2015, the company had approximately 2.06 billion barrels-equivalent of proved reserves, making it one of the world's largest independent exploration and production companies.
