Oil And NGL Boost Proved Reserves At WPX Energy To 5.26 TCFE

WPX Energy (NYSE:WPX) announced today that its total proved reserves as of Dec. 31, 2011, increased to a company high of nearly 5.3 trillion cubic feet equivalent – up approximately 9 percent vs. 2010.

Approximately 77 percent of WPX’s 2011 total proved reserves are natural gas and 23 percent natural gas liquids (NGL) and crude oil. At year-end 2010, natural gas accounted for 83 percent of the company’s reserves using a standard ratio of 6-to-1 to convert oil and NGL to natural gas equivalent.
