  • During 2014, Apache has added more than 300,000 acres of leasehold in key growth plays.

We have made great progress in strategically positioning our North American onshore portfolio for high growth and high returns. We continue to focus on growing liquids production from our deep inventory of North American resource locations. Proceeds from today’s announced asset sales will be used primarily to fund our 2014 leasehold acquisition program, which has added significant acreage within our primary focus areas.
