WPX Energy Spreads Christmas Cheer
WPX Energy is celebrating the season of giving by donating $50,000 to the United Way of Dickinson to support needs in Stark, Dunn and Billings counties.
WPX has offices in Killdeer and New Town where the company employs 83 people. WPX has been developing oil wells in North Dakota’s Bakken Shale since 2010.
The firm’s local team raised money through events and employee contributions, including a clay shoot that drew 95 shooters and a 144-participant golf tournament.
“WPX understands the importance of partnership and relationships between oil companies and local nonprofits,” said United Way of Dickinson Executive Director Nichole De Leon.
“They appreciate the fact that 100 percent of our donations stay local, and we deeply appreciate everything they’ve done including filling a seat on our board,” De Leon continued.
WPX Superintendent Damian Paulson says, “We share United Way’s values. We all have a stake in advancing the quality of life in our surrounding communities.
“From working with our local schools to helping a family struggling to keep their home, United Way’s problem-solving approach meets critical needs,” Paulson added.
WPX is in the process of merging with Oklahoma City-based Devon Energy. The merger is expected to close in January 2021. At that point, WPX will become known as Devon going forward.
“WPX understands the importance of partnership and relationships between oil companies and local nonprofits.”
