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.
