Shares of WPX Energy (NYSE:WPX) will begin trading “regular way” on the New York Stock Exchange today following a successful spinoff from Williams (NYSE:WMB) that concluded on Dec. 31.
WPX Energy is an active developer and producer of oil, natural gas and gas liquids in resource-rich areas such as North Dakota’s Bakken Shale, Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale and Colorado’s Piceance Basin.
“We have a significant inventory of drilling opportunities in our existing acreage that we believe will allow us to continue to deliver solid results like double-digit production growth,” said Ralph Hill, chief executive officer.
“We’re also targeting a more balanced approach in our commodity mix. With that, we’re expecting approximately 37 percent of our 2012 revenues to come from oil and natural gas liquids,” Hill added.Executives and guests of WPX Energy will celebrate the company’s new start as an independent, publicly traded company at the NYSE this morning when CEO Ralph Hill rings The Opening Bell.
