Overview | Print |
PDC Energy is an exploration and production company headquartered in Denver, Colorado focused on value-added growth through its organic horizontal drilling programs and bolt-on acquisitions in its core areas. PDC's operations include production, development, exploration and marketing of crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids (“NGLs”). PDC’s portfolio is comprised of assets located in the Wattenberg Field in Colorado and the Delaware Basin in West Texas. The Company’s total 2017 net production increased approximately 44% year-over-year to 31.8 million barrels of oil equivalent (“MMBoe”), which was derived primarily from the Wattenberg Field, and consisted of 62% crude oil and NGLs, and 38% natural gas.
As of year-end 2017, the Company had proved reserves of 453 MMBoe and owned an interest in approximately 2,800 gross productive wells. PDC has a multi-year inventory of predictable, high-value horizontal locations in the Wattenberg Field (approximately 1,500) that offer significant organic development and long-term growth opportunities. Additionally, the Company has identified 450 horizontal locations in the Delaware Basin in its oiliest Eastern and North Central areas.
