The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Anadarko made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: that the Company’s maintenance and safety protocols concerning certain of its vertical wells were inadequate; that due to those shortcomings, these wells were at an increased risk of explosion; and that as a result of the above, Anadarko’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On April 17, 2017, a deadly explosion killed two individuals and critically injured another in a home located within 170 feet of an Anadarko well. On April 26, 2017, The Denver Post reported that the Company “plans to shut down 3,000 vertical wells in northeastern Colorado” following the April 17 explosion. On May 2, 2017, the Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District concluded that the fatal home explosion on April 17 was linked to a faulty gas line connected to an Anadarko well. When this news was announced, Anadarko shares fell in value materially, which harmed investors according to the Complaint.
