New Mexico Wildlife >
Devon is helping the U.S. Bureau of Land Management control mesquite in southeast New Mexico. This partnership could help restore vital habitat for the lesser prairie chicken and other wildlife.
Multi-well Pads> >
Recent technological drilling advancements allow Devon to place several wells on a single site. The benefits of this practice are numerous, not only for the company, but also for property owners and other stakeholders.
Hydraulic fracturing: A 60-year track record of safety >
Conducted safely by the oil and gas industry for more than 60 years, this process is a chief reason that the United States now has a 100-year supply of natural gas.
Green completions >
Using the green completions process, Devon has reduced methane emissions by nearly 13 billion cubic feet in the Barnett Shale. A green completions is an environmentally friendly method of keeping the air clean in the final stages of a natural gas well’s completion.
Low-Emissions Valve >
A tiny example of ingenuity is proving to be doubly beneficial at some of Devon's older wells. It reduces greenhouse emissions while preserving more natural gas for eventual sale.
Canadian Emission Reduction Program >
Emission reduction is a key to Devon's stewardship commitment. In Canada, we are taking a proactive approach to emission reduction that reaches beyond government mandates.
Recycling efforts in North Texas reduce water needs >
Groundbreaking technology is helping Devon recycle 175,000 gallons of water each day in the Barnett Shale. This achievement has earned accolades from Texas regulatory officials and the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission.
Freshwater Management in Canada >
Water conservation has taken on particular significance to Canadians during this decade. Here you can read about the water usage policy Devon developed for its Canada operations. You also will find stories here about innovative efforts at three specific sites, including our Jackfish heavy oil facility, where Devon is eliminating the need for millions of gallons of fresh water.
