By WPX Energy Inc. | December 26, 2017

WPX Energy Inc. has completed the divestiture of its legacy natural gas position in the San Juan Basin. The sales price was $169 million, subject to typical closing adjustments.

The transaction includes WPX’s operated and non-operated gas properties in the basin. The sale does not include WPX’s oil operations in the basin’s Gallup play.

WPX expects to finish 2017 with approximately $200 million cash on-hand and no borrowings against its credit revolver. All of WPX’s $1.2 billion revolver capacity is available, with the exception of $70 million in outstanding letters of credit.

CIBC Griffis & Small provided financial and technical advisory services to WPX for the transaction.
