The divested assets consist of an approximate 200,000-net-acre position in the Piceance Basin of Colorado boasting recent net production of approximately 500 million cubic feet equivalent per day. The assets also include deep rights across approximately 150,000 net acres prospective for the emerging horizontal Mancos-Niobrara play.

Credit Suisse acted as the exclusive financial advisor to WPX on the Piceance transaction.
