Anadarko Petroleum Corporation reported fourth-quarter and full-year 2007 financial and operating results.
"In 2007, we transformed Anadarko's portfolio and positioned the company for consistent and predictable performance in 2008 and beyond," said Anadarko Chairman, President and CEO Jim Hackett. "Throughout the year, our retained properties demonstrated the strong and efficient performance we expected and delivered solid production volume growth. As a result, we were able to increase production guidance on three separate occasions in 2007, by a total of about 6% from the original projection, while improving the company's cost structure.
"I am excited about the portfolio we have assembled and proud of the numerous accomplishments of our employees during the past year. Examples of these accomplishments include: the Independence Hub project, which was delivered on time and on budget, and ramped up production as projected; the substantial discoveries offshore Ghana and in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico; and the completion of significant infrastructure enhancements in the Rocky Mountain region," added Hackett.
