Bakken operator releases documentary on fracking, oil production

By WPX Energy | November 20, 2013

WPX Energy has announced that it is launching a website to help clear up controversy and misinformation surrounding hydraulic fracturing and the process of exploring for, drilling and producing oil and natural gas.

The site——serves as a platform for delivering an approximately 30-minute video commissioned by WPX Energy. The video is titled, Down Deep: Unearthing the Truth About Hydraulic Fracturing, and features conversations with experts, landowners, neighbors and WPX executives.

Using genuine facts and interviews with third parties, Down Deep, takes on the dishonest politicking and misguided environmentalism that has become entangled with the public’s image of “fracking.”

WPX Energy believes U.S. citizens all have the right to be informed of the facts surrounding any vital issue—and the right to be involved in the decisions that shape America’s energy future.

Down Deep gives Americans the facts they need to make their own informed decisions, and it provides a route for them to easily reach out to their government representatives and make their voices heard.

WPX Energy is a leader in responsible energy development, having earned nearly 40 national, state, local and industry awards for technology, innovation, efficiency, reclamation, water management, best practices and community involvement.

Additionally, WPX has registered more than 1,100 wells in the FracFocus chemical disclosure database. The company operates in several shale plays, including the Williston Basin.
