About Us

Kerr-McGee Corp. is one of the largest U.S.-based independent oil and natural gas exploration and production companies, with proved reserves of more than 1.2 billion barrels of oil equivalent at year-end 2004, including approximately 242 million BOE of reserves from discontinued operations in the North Sea. The company’s producing fields are located in the United States onshore, the Gulf of Mexico and the Bohai Bay area of China. In addition, Kerr-McGee explores for oil and gas in its core areas and in world-class proven hydrocarbon trends including the North Slope of Alaska and offshore Angola, Bahamas, Benin, Brazil, Morocco, and Trinidad and Tobago.

Kerr-McGee’s balanced portfolio of high-quality oil and gas assets is weighted toward less capital-intensive properties with longer reserve life and lower production decline rate.

On Nov. 17, 2005, Kerr-McGee announced that it closed the sale of all of its North Sea operations. For more details on the closing, see the Nov. 17 news release

Founded in 1929, Kerr-McGee has been listed on the New York Stock Exchange since 1956 under the ticker symbol KMG.
