Anadarko Petroleum Corporation is an energy company that develops oil and natural gas resources in the United States and worldwide. In August 2019, Anadarko became an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Occidental Petroleum Corporation ("Occidental"). Prior to Anadarko's acquisition by Occidental, Anadarko common stock traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol "APC."

The Complaint alleges that in 2009, Anadarko discovered the "Shenandoah" oil field in the Gulf of Mexico. It is alleged that after drilling an initial exploratory well named Shenandoah-1, Anadarko spent the following eight years appraising the field by drilling and evaluating five appraisal wells (Shenandoah-2, Shenandoah-3, Shenandoah-4, Shenandoah-5 and Shenandoah-6). It is alleged that during that time, including throughout the Class Period, the Defendants made repeated positive representations about the prospects and value of the Shenandoah assets.

The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, the Defendants misrepresented or failed to disclose that: (1) the value of the Shenandoah assets and the success of the Shenandoah appraisal wells were overstated; (2) Anadarko lacked effective internal control over financial reporting; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, the Defendants' statements about Anadarko's Shenandoah assets lacked a reasonable basis. It is alleged that when the market learned the truth about Anadarko, investors suffered damages.

If you have purchased at least 100,000 shares of APC stock (NYSE:APC), please contact the Thornton Law Firm's shareholder rights team at, or call 617-531-3917 to discuss the lead plaintiff process.
