Anadarko Petroleum Company

Developing, acquiring and exploring vital resources to the world's health and welfare.


In 2010, following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Anadarko Petroleum Company enlisted Qorvis Communications to contain negative publicity, and monitor news and potential legislative action affecting Anadarko due to its role as a passive investor in the Macondo well.


Qorvis Communications worked with financial reporters to tell Anadarko’s story — that Anadarko bore no responsibility for the operations of the Deepwater Horizon and was shielded from legal and financial liability from the spill. Qorvis also partnered with grassroots operatives in four Gulf Coast states to monitor activities by state attorneys general and legislators.
