The Company is a holding company with three lines of business - gas and oil exploration and production, midstream field services, and energy marketing - which are conducted through three principal subsidiaries: QEP Energy Company (QEP Energy) acquires, explores for, develops and produces gas, oil, and NGL; QEP Field Services Company (QEP Field Services), which includes the ownership and operations of QEP Midstream Partners, LP (QEP Midstream), provides midstream field services, including gathering of natural gas, oil and NGL, natural gas processing, compression, and treating services, for affiliates and third parties, and; QEP Marketing Company (QEP Marketing) markets affiliate and third-party oil and gas, and owns and operates an underground gas storage reservoir. Its operations are engaged in two regions: the Northern Region (North Dakota, Wyoming and Utah) and the Southern Region (Oklahoma, Louisiana and the Texas Panhandle) of the United States. QEP Energy conducts exploration and production (E&P) activities in North America's hydrocarbon resource plays. QEP Energy has a large inventory of identified development drilling locations, primarily in the Williston Basin in North Dakota; the Pinedale Anticline in western Wyoming; the Uinta Basin in eastern Utah; the Anadarko Basin in Oklahoma and Texas; the Haynesville/Cotton Valley in northwestern Louisiana and other proven properties in Wyoming, Colorado and Utah. QEP Field Services provides midstream services (gathering, processing and treating) to QEP Energy and third-party customers, including major and independent producers.

The Company faces competition from large multi-national, integrated oil companies; U.S. independent oil and gas companies; service companies engaging in oil and gas exploration and production activities; and private equity funds investing in oil and gas assets.The Company's business operations are subject to regulation under a wide range of local, state, tribal and federal statutes, rules, orders and regulations.
