About Pioneer Natural Resources Stock (NYSE:PXD)

Pioneer Natural Resources Co. is an American hydrocarbon exploration and production company headquartered in Irving, Texas. As of December 2022, the company is ranked 248th on the Fortune 500 list, up from 428th in 2021. Pioneer Natural Resources Co. is the largest acreage holder in the Spraberry Trend of the Permian Basin. 

Pioneer Natural Resources formed in 1997 following the merger of MESA Inc. and Parker & Parsley Petroleum Company, owned by T. Boone Pickens. This merger set the tone for Pioneer Natural Resources’ growth over the next two decades, as the company made multiple acquisitions, divestitures and discoveries of oil and gas reserves. 

In 2002, Pioneer discovered its first oil discoveries on the Alaska North Slope, followed by the first independent production in 2008. In 2004, Pioneer acquired Evergreen Resources in a $2.1 billion transaction. The company also formed a joint venture with Reliance Industries in 2006, purchasing the assets of the Eagle Ford Group for $1.15 billion. In 2015, that joint venture went to Enterprise Products Partners for $2.15 billion. 

In April 2012, Pioneer Natural Resources purchased Carmeuse Industrial Sands, a silica sand manufacturer, for $297 million, followed by the sale of a 40% interest in approximately 207,000 net acres leased in horizontal Wolfcamp Shale to Sinochem Petroleum USA LLC for $1.7 billion in May 2013. The company sold non-producing assets in the Hugoton Basin to Linn Energy for $340 million in 2014. 

In 2016, Pioneer Natural Resources acquired 28,000 acres in the Midland Basin for $435 million. Then, 2,000 acres sold in Martin County, Texas, for $266 million in March 2017. In April 2021, the company acquired DoublePoint Energy for approximately $6.4 billion. In January 2021, the company continued acquisitions by purchasing Parsley Energy. 

Pioneer Natural Resources is a significant player in hydrocarbon exploration and production. The company holds substantial reserves of natural resources to help it compensate for lean production times. Pioneer Natural Resources is the largest acreage holder of land in the Permian Basin, providing plenty of room for the company to grow. The company has engaged in several significant acquisitions and divestitures over the years, including the acquisition of Evergreen Resources in 2004 and the sale of non-producing assets in the Hugoton Basin to Linn Energy in 2014. Pioneer Natural Resources is well-positioned for continued growth and success in the future.
