WILLISTON – XTO Energy Inc., a subsidiary of ExxonMobil, has added 20 jobs to its Williston Field Office.
The moves came with the closure of the company’s metro Denver office on Sept. 1, 2017. The closure was part of a larger effort to move employees closer to the field.
Williston’s newest residents are high-level employees involved with XTO’s Bakken operations.
Matthew Deveau, operations manager, was the first Denver-based senior company representative to make the move to Williston. He paved the way for the others by overseeing the office build-out and getting acclimated to living in western North Dakota. He said the transition has gone better than he expected, both at work and home.
“I think the transition is actually exceeding my expectations,” said Deveau. “This is a model that we have seen work elsewhere within XTO, having our operations-focused people closer to the well.”
