Anadarko Petroleum Corporation reported to the Texas Workforce Commission in January that layoffs were likely after a $2.3 billion sale of 318,000 gross acres in Dimmit and Webb counties. At the time, the company said up to 85 jobs might be affected and on March 23rd they sent pink slips to 60, according to Fuelfix.

Sanchez Energy Corporation and Blackstone Group LP. purchased the Eagle Ford assets, with current production of approximately 67,000 Boe/d.

An unspecified number of Anadarko employees went to work for Sanchez. But about 60 employees who supported the project, mostly from Anadarko’s headquarters in The Woodlands, were not retained by Sanchez. The employees worked in a variety of areas including operations and accounting.
