Natural landscape near QEP Resources environmentally friendly oil drilling.


QEP has a history of utilizing multi-well pads dating back to 2003, creating significant reductions in our surface footprint. 100% of our wells will be drilled on multi-well pads in 2019.

  • The practice of placing several wells on one pad reduces our impact on land; reduces the number of rig moves between pads; reduces truck traffic and the need for additional roads; decreases our operating costs; reduces uncertainty involved with the permit process; and reduces our impact on wildlife and the communities in which we operate while improving our operational efficiencies.
  • QEP is a pioneer in horizontal hydraulic re-fracturing, which allows us to increase production from existing wells by utilizing the existing wellbore, pad and production facility without causing additional surface disturbance.
