Apache Corporation is one of the world's top independent oil and gas exploration and production companies.
 
The company delivered full-year 2015 production of 535 thousand barrels of oil equivalent (Mboe) per day and pro forma production of 486 Mboe per day, which represented pro forma growth in North America Onshore and International and Offshore of 3 percent and 13 percent, respectively.
 
Worldwide estimated proved reserves totaled 1.6 billion barrels of oil equivalent (Boe) at year-end 2015, down from 2.4 billion Boe at year-end 2014. The decrease in reserves is primarily driven by significant divestitures in Australia and Canada.
 
Apache entered the North Sea in 2003 after acquiring an approximate 97-percent working interest in the Forties field (Forties). Since acquiring Forties, Apache has actively invested in the region having produced and sold oil volumes in excess of the proved reserves initially recorded.
