You know, the book club, chair yoga, self defense class and balloon bazaar just isn't enough to distract me from all the BS here at APC. I think we ALL need to schedule a mental health day at the same time. What say you APC?!?!
Topics regarding layoffs at Anadarko Petroleum Corp.
They listened to the feedback and removed their pictures from the email signature.
Place your bets everyone. The close date coincides with payroll. Monday morning m—acre? Executives gone for sure, but who thinks they'll be able to cull a good 25% right off the bat. No doubt, the actual integration will be a long and... — read more
Am I the only one that thinks this is a joke?!?! With all the money the EC is about to receive maybe they should be paying for there own damn balloons... What a joke...they are all laughing all the way to the bank while the worker bee's wait in... — read more
Is this their idea of transparency? Reminds me of my Ex-wife. Shrouded with secrecy and obscurity. If anyone needs me i’ll be at the gym working on my glutes. — read more

What everyone’s thoughts on the most recent HSE monthly meeting? It seems corporate is completely out of touch with what goes on in the field. Also that one directors HPI presentation seemed to be a massive middle finger to the field. Thoughts?
Any word on retention bonus or anything of that nature? I would assume we would get our personal wealth money?
How much PTO do you get at OXY? What is the schedule for it increasing? Asking because part of the CoC stipulates similar benefits. OXY might get an increase.
With all the uncertainty, it’s hard to stay focused. I’m hoping for COC, but feel Oxy will not give it to many people.
Hmmmmm... finally had some real information on here and the whole post is taken down. It didn't have anyone's name on it. Now I see no posts from yesterday at all. Where's the transparency??
What happened to posting the FAQs? A lot has been sent in, but they stopped posting answers to any questions that we have. Where's the transparency that was promised?
At our townhall with Oxy CEO, it was said voluntary retirement for those 55 and up would be offered for both companies. Will it be the same package as the COC?
Oxy has a townhall next week; any word if APC is going to have one as well?
Heard from multiple sources that the close will occur in mid-July, not September.
I guess we don’t need to be concerned about mid year reviews?
If you dig a little online you’ll find that a previous COO of WES is now an OXY VP of Midstream.
Seems like a good idea to keep it to stay close to Rockies assets. Also I bet there's plenty of Oxy suits who want to get the hell out of Houston and keeping this office is that ticket out.
The only time RAW came out of pocket to purchase APC stock was in May 2017 at a tune of about $1m. According to OXY’s S-4, formal talks between he and VH took place in July of that year. Coincidence?
For making us the joke of the entire industry with you and your incompetent EC payouts. Unbelievable, $300MM? You guys are jokes.

Haven't you heard? Layoffs are the latest rage in the oil patch. Add Ford to that list because they are going 'green' baby with all those cool EV's. Don't need thousands of people using that nasty petroleum fuel. An advanced technical degree and... — read more
What is the prediction for midstream assets? Seems that the "stock market doesn't understand midstream and their associated debt situation resulting in APC stock penalty"? (something along these lines anyway) "We (new Oxy) will have superb midstream... — read more
From reading the Anadarko questions and answers section filed with the SEC it looks like things are up in the air about as much as they could be. Also, the letter in the same filings from the OXY CEO seem to be the same. Based on what the Oxy CEO is... — read more
