Black listed?

If HR or project team is reading this or anyone else, will employees that are voluntary leaving or involuntary let go: will they black listed by company to be consider for future position?

Early Retirement Amounts?

Does anyone know what the salary multiple was for those who accepted the early retirement offer? Was it 2 weeks per year of service? 1 month per year? 80% of a month per year? Or was there no standard salary multiple?


It seems its all quiet on the front.....any updates in Houston office? Thinking it might take a hit at the near end of January.

Early "retirement" effective 12/31/19

A large body of experience just walked out the door today, due to the early "retirement" mini-incentive offered in November. It's a shame, but there are opportunities for APA competitors right now with these on the market. Mismanagement at it's... —  read more 

Suriname Saves Apache??

How’s your French Christmann? Thank you to Total for saving 2019 Christmas. I’m surprised it hasn’t hit the market news-wise though...

SA lied about Alpine. Let ‘me ALL go.

SA Apache: lied about Alpine being an oil play. As former Enron, of course they did. And then they stole from other offices like Midland and Tulsa once they infiltrated. Treated underlings c-appy and fired those who said anything. Tanked everyone’s... —  read more

Post Oak is shrinking, but the trees kept voting for the axe. For the axe was clever and convinced the trees that because his handle was wood he was one of them.

Severance if you reject a Houston spot?

Anyone have any idea what kind of severance will be given to people who do get an offer in Houston, but don’t want to be trapped in the same building as our CEO in a giant, ugly parking lot of a city?

Financial status

There is no way to spin the numbers to make APA look good. Continuing to pay dividends despite losses, amassing debt, willingly decimating our own revenue each quarter via asset sales, and now making the noble decision to be explorers despite having... —  read more

Vacation Carryover

Did anyone else hear or read on the FAQ's: severed employees who have carryover vacation will not be paid for it? That sounds weird? Right? If you were vested to get the benefit, why could a severed employee not get the benefit? Anyone gotten... —  read more 

Anticipated Drop

Don't have finance knowledge, is it possible the news about the Suriname update might have been anticipated to cause a drop so better news will help drive the stock up? Or the plunge would make the benefit payouts better on the equity?

enough is enough

So tired of our management bungling everything. Does anyone know anything actually concrete about Maka?? If they are testing it means they found something right? Maybe it is gas so therefore uneconomic.... I should not have put so much into... —  read more
