Devon Energy oil and gas exploration summary

Report summary

After shedding its non-core positions, Devon will focus entirely on developing core assets. The main focus is on STACK and Delaware basin developments, where it has and will continue to direct the majority of its exploration spend. Devon will run a number of rigs in the Delaware basin where it will work to delineate the Leonard Shale and Delaware Sands formations. In the STACK, Devon is targeting the Woodford and Meramec, which overlies the Woodford. Devon gained wide access to well data in the Permian through the acquisition of Felix Energy in December 2015, which will help it improve operational performance there.
