At Anadarko, we seek to safely produce oil and natural gas in a manner that ensures the protection of our communities and environment. Our Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) team works seamlessly with operations and facilities to ensure compliance with all applicable laws and regulations and maintain a safe workplace. We also engage proactively with the communities in which we operate to maintain a constant, consistent and transparent dialogue about our operations.
An example of our commitment to sustainable development is our advancement of the tankless battery in Colorado and West Texas. Anadarko continually strives to reduce surface impacts associated with production facilities. The original tank batteries for horizontal wells typically required four tanks for each well, and our first-generation lease automatic custody transfer (LACT) unit batteries reduced this number by half. Through continued design modifications, the installation of LACT units has reduced the need for storage tanks to only one for several wells. The reduction in truck traffic previously required for liquids transfer, and the associated reduction of emissions, dust, noise, and local road congestion, is a direct and positive result achieved by the new production facility design. At our DJ Basin operations, truck traffic associated with hauling oil and water has been reduced by at least 75 percent in the first year of LACT batteries being commissioned. Lastly, the viewshed associated with the tankless battery is reduced from previous designs. Decreasing the size and height of the pad makes these facilities less noticeable for local residents, while still allowing for efficient production. This technology is being applied in West Texas as Anadarko begins pad development.
