HOUSTON, March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Apache Corporation (NYSE, Nasdaq: APA)
and its subsidiaries today announced an agreement to sell producing oil and
gas assets in the Deep Basin area of western Alberta and British Columbia,
Canada, for $374 million.

Apache can be found at www.apachecorp.com.

Incremental to Apache's earlier $2 billion share re-purchase announcement, the
company plans to use the proceeds of this transaction to buy back Apache
common shares under the 30-million-share repurchase program that was
authorized by Apache's Board of Directors in 2013.

Apache is selling primarily dry gas-producing properties comprising 622,600
gross acres (328,400 net acres) in the Ojay, Noel and Wapiti areas in Alberta
and British Columbia. In the Wapiti area, Apache will retain 100 percent of
its working interest in horizons below the Cretaceous, retaining rights to the
liquids-rich Montney and other deeper horizons. During 2013, production from
the fields to be sold averaged 101 million cubic feet of natural gas and 1,500
barrels of liquid hydrocarbons per day.

The effective date of the transaction is Jan. 1, 2014, and it is expected to
close on or about April 30. The transaction is subject to customary
post-closing adjustments.

"This transaction is part of Apache's portfolio rebalancing, which was
undertaken last year to enable Apache to focus on growing liquids production
from a deep inventory of crude oil- and liquids-rich opportunities in North
America," said G. Steven Farris, Apache's chairman, chief executive officer
and president.

"The sale of these natural gas assets – and other Canadian gas-producing
properties sold last year – will permit Apache's Canada Region to concentrate
on liquids-rich opportunities that can provide more attractive rates of return
and more predictable production growth," Farris said.

Since the rebalancing was announced in 2013, Apache also divested operations
on the Gulf of Mexico Shelf and in Argentina and sold a one-third interest in
its Egypt operations.
