Anadarko's Timberloch Building Achieves LEED® Silver Certification

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - September 22, 2010) -  Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: APC) today announced that its Timberloch office building in The Woodlands, Texas has been awarded LEED® Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

"As an energy producer, we are keenly aware of the importance of energy conservation, and achieving back-to-back LEED certifications for both of our corporate office buildings in The Woodlands is a testament to that understanding and our commitment," Anadarko Real Estate and Facilities Manager John Frere said. "I am very proud of the work by our facilities teams to improve conservation, achieve greater energy efficiency and enhance the overall environmental performance of the Timberloch building and our entire corporate office complex."

The Timberloch building, which is located at 1200 Timberloch Place, was completed in 1998. Under Anadarko's ownership, the Timberloch building was upgraded to achieve LEED Silver certification for energy use, lighting, water and material use, as well as incorporating a variety of other sustainable strategies. The LEED Silver certification of the Timberloch building follows last year's LEED certification of the adjacent 30-story Anadarko Tower, which was the first office building in The Woodlands to achieve LEED certification. Both buildings also are recognized for their savings on energy consumption with the Energy Star Award given by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The company has worked collaboratively with various vendors to upgrade and maximize features of both buildings such as the air filtration, the building automation system, and lighting infrastructure and controls. In addition, the team improved recycling programs and implemented green-cleaning and water-usage control programs.

The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System™ is an internationally recognized green building certification system that provides independent, third-party verification that a building meets the highest green building and performance measures.
