“Our employees did outstanding work over the past year to overcome the prolonged market challenges and sharpen the company’s competitive focus going forward,” said Al Walker, Anadarko Chairman, President and CEO.  “As a result of these actions, we have a stronger balance sheet, an improved cost structure, and a more concentrated portfolio focused on higher-margin oil production provided by our leading positions in the Delaware and DJ basins and the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. These accomplishments, along with our monetization activities, the cash-generating capabilities of our international operations, a successful exploration program, and the acquisition of Freeport-McMoRan’s Gulf of Mexico properties, have created strong momentum going into 2017. We are already increasing investments in our three ‘Ds’ to drive a five-year compounded annual oil growth rate of 12 to 14 percent, and I believe Anadarko is in a better position to deliver value than at any time in my tenure with the company.”
