WPX Energy Completes Gallup Sale for USD 700 Million

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/29/2018, Location: North America

WPX Energy has closed an agreement to sell its holdings in the San Juan Basin’s Gallup oil play to Enduring Resources IV, LLC for $700 million prior to closing adjustments.

A significant portion of the proceeds are slated for debt reduction. WPX now believes it can reduce its net debt/EBITDAX to a target level of 1.5x during 2019.

The transaction completes WPX’s exit from operations in the San Juan Basin, signaling the company’s confidence in its two remaining core positions in the Delaware (Permian) and Williston basins.

“Our path forward is clear and compelling. It’s about consistent execution, sticking with our multi-year plan and continuing to create value by looking ahead,” said Rick Muncrief, WPX chairman and CEO.

WPX’s production is now approximately 80 percent liquids (oil and NGL) and 20 percent natural gas. Five years ago, it was the opposite at 80 percent gas and 20 percent liquids. WPX has aggressively transformed its portfolio through nearly $8 billion of transactions.

CIBC Griffis & Small provided advisory services to WPX for the transaction. Holland & Hart LLP served as WPX’s external legal counsel.
