Mitsui breaks ranks

Is MozLNG finally ready for monetization? Mitsui thinks so. Who are likely buyers? A certain Gulf NOC? Will 10% satisfy? Or will they want more?

Bubbling Crater in Colorado

Apparently APC is in the news again due to a bubbling crater that smells like sulfur. Does anyone have specifics they would like to share? Broken pipelines, bubbling gas, and explosions seem to par for the course with APC, especially in Colorado.

Working for APC

Besides the doom and gloom and the impending layoffs and general feeling of discontent (and malcontent!), how is working for APC these days? I suspect not much has changed except for the feel good, reach around Town hall speeches and the left over... read more

Town Hall

So, we have town hall here shortly. I wonder what they are going to tell us. This is the first time in the past 5 years at least that they don’t release AIP or merit raises guidance before town hall. Companies are hiring, people will jump ship if... read more

Someone please explain!!!!

I am over the top confused by APC leadership. Why are we still pursuing LNG? $20BN Project. The last I saw we just made a $900MM profit in 2 years. So in 20 quarters we can pay for this charade of a project. Very nice Walker.. Very nice. I have heard... read more

Rock Springs

It's quiet and stable. We can use that for a change. I wish you all the best...


Nope, AAET will not add value to APC’s bottom line. It’s just a smoke and mirrors setup designed to give the impression that the execs are breathing life into the carcass of a lifeless company. If you’re wondering whether you should invest, I’d... read more

A Winderful Analogy! My Gift 2 U

Anadarko, is that you? A Japanese company and a North American company decided to have a canoe race on the St. Lawrence River. Both teams practiced long and hard to reach their peak performance before the race. On the big day, the Japanese won by a... read more


Looks like there's fresh talk of a merger with Apache. If you put two losers together, does it make a winner?

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to everyone still stuck at APC. 2018 is going to be an even bigger comedy of errors than 2017, so break out the popcorn!

2018 is Going to be Huge

How about that chemical spill in Colorado? Great work Anadarko. I’d like to propose a new core value for 2018 in addition to the ones previously mentioned about sleeping with your subordinates...... “Safety third!”

Stay away from Anadarko

APC has been on a hiring binge for about a year now. Would you really want to come back here? Think about it. The worst performers are running the show. The ppt Kings. The pr queens. The color coded meeting jesters. There are more layers now than... read more

I heard a rumor that they’re going to close down a majority of the Denver office before year end, leaving only essential personnel like HR, mail room, and janitorial staff. Has anyone else heard the same?

EC Reviews Headcount?!?

I've been hearing from my manager that Walker and the crew now spend their weekly meetings reviewing all new hires. Is that possibly true? Seems such a waste of time (for those making millions a year, and losing APC billions a year). What leadership... read more
