SHREVEPORT, La.—It’s not uncommon for British supermajor BP Plc to publicly share information on its operations; however, its Lower 48 business—the recently christened BPX Energy—rarely makes such moves.

That changed when Mohit Singh, senior vice president of BPX Energy, took the stage at Hart Energy’s DUG Haynesville Conference & Exhibition on Feb. 20. He spoke about how BP is transforming its U.S. onshore business, following its $10.5 billion acquisition of BHP Billiton’s Delaware Basin, Eagle Ford and Haynesville assets in 2018.
