TULSA — A total of 150 WPX Energy employees in Tulsa have accepted offers to work at Oklahoma City-based Devon Energy as part of the companies' recently completed merger, a spokesman said.

"WPX people have a lot to offer local employers," Swan said in an email. "We come from a great corporate culture. We know what it takes to build a successful company, and we're poised to make a meaningful impact wherever we land next. As a whole, we love Tulsa and we're fully invested in the city's future and the vibrance of our community."
