EOG RESOURCES INC : Regulation FD Disclosure (form 8-K)

10/14/2020 | 04:51pm EST

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

I. Price Matters Update.


    Based on the tax position of EOG Resources, Inc. (EOG), EOG's price
sensitivity (exclusive of basis swaps) as of October 14, 2020, for each $1.00
per barrel (Bbl) increase or decrease in wellhead crude oil and condensate
price, combined with the estimated change in natural gas liquids (NGLs) price,
is approximately $33 million for net income and $43 million for pretax cash
flows from operating activities, in each case for the fourth quarter of 2020.

    Based on EOG's tax position and the portion of EOG's anticipated natural gas
volumes for which prices have not (as of October 14, 2020) been determined under
long-term marketing contracts, EOG's price sensitivity (exclusive of basis
swaps) as of October 14, 2020, for each $0.10 per thousand cubic feet increase
or decrease in wellhead natural gas price, is approximately $7 million for net
income and $9 million for pretax cash flows from operating activities, in each
case for the fourth quarter of 2020.

    See below for a summary of EOG's financial commodity derivative contracts as
of October 14, 2020. For a summary of EOG's financial commodity derivative
contracts for the six months ended June 30, 2020, see Note 12 to the Condensed
Consolidated Financial Statements included in EOG's Quarterly Report on Form
10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2020, filed on August 6, 2020
(Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q).

II. Price Risk Management


With the objective of enhancing the certainty of future revenues, from time to
time EOG enters into U.S. New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) or
Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) related financial price swap, option, swaption,
collar and basis swap contracts. EOG accounts for financial commodity derivative
contracts using the mark-to-market accounting method.

For the third quarter of 2020, EOG anticipates a net loss of $4 million on the
mark-to-market of its financial commodity derivative contracts. During the third
quarter of 2020, the net cash received for settlements of financial commodity
derivative contracts was $275 million.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2020, NYMEX West Texas Intermediate (WTI)
crude oil averaged $40.94 per Bbl, and NYMEX natural gas at Henry Hub averaged
$1.94 per million British thermal units (MMBtu). EOG's actual realizations for
crude oil and natural gas for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, differ from
these NYMEX prices due to delivery location (basis), quality and appropriate
revenue adjustments. Market prices for NGLs are influenced by the components
extracted, including ethane, propane, butane and natural gasoline, among others,
and the respective market pricing for each component.

III. Crude Oil Derivative Contracts

Since filing its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, EOG has not entered into additional crude oil derivative contracts.


As noted above, prices received by EOG for its crude oil production generally
vary from NYMEX WTI prices due to adjustments for delivery location (basis) and
other factors. EOG has entered into crude oil basis swap contracts in order to
fix the differential between ICE Brent pricing and pricing in Cushing, Oklahoma
(ICE Brent Differential). Presented below is a comprehensive summary of EOG's
ICE Brent Differential basis swap contracts through October 14, 2020. The
weighted average price differential expressed in dollars per Bbl ($/Bbl)
represents the amount of addition to Cushing, Oklahoma, prices for the notional
volumes expressed in barrels per day (Bbld) covered by the basis swap contracts.

  EOG has also entered into crude oil swaps to fix the differential in pricing
between the NYMEX calendar month average and the physical crude oil delivery
month (Roll Differential). Presented below is a comprehensive summary of EOG's
Roll Differential swap contracts through October 14, 2020. The weighted average
price differential expressed in $/Bbl represents the amount of net addition
(reduction) to delivery month prices for the notional volumes expressed in Bbld
covered by the swap contracts.

  EOG has entered into natural gas collar contracts, which establish ceiling and
floor prices for the sale of notional volumes of natural gas as specified in the
collar contracts. The collars require that EOG pay the difference between the
ceiling price and the NYMEX Henry Hub natural gas price for the contract month
(Henry Hub Index Price) in the event the Henry Hub Index Price is above the
ceiling price. The collars grant EOG the right to receive the difference between
the floor price and the Henry Hub Index Price in the event the Henry Hub Index
Price is below the floor price. In March 2020, EOG executed the early
termination provision granting EOG the right to terminate certain 2020 natural
gas collar contracts with notional volumes of 250,000 MMBtud at a weighted
average ceiling price of $2.50 per MMBtu and a weighted average floor price of
$2.00 per MMBtu for the period from April 1, 2020 through July 31, 2020. EOG
received net cash of $7.8 million for the settlement of these contracts.

EOG has also entered into natural gas basis swap contracts in order to fix the
differential between pricing at the Waha Hub in West Texas and NYMEX Henry Hub
prices (Waha Differential). Presented below is a comprehensive summary of EOG's
Waha Differential basis swap contracts through October 14, 2020. The weighted
average price differential expressed in $/MMBtu represents the amount of
reduction to NYMEX Henry Hub prices for the notional volumes expressed in MMBtud
covered by the basis swap contracts.

In April 2020, EOG entered into Waha Differential basis swap contracts for the
period from May 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020, with notional volumes of
50,000 MMBtud at a weighted average price differential of $0.43 per MMBtu. These
contracts offset the remaining Waha Differential basis swap contracts for the
same time period with notional volumes of 50,000 MMBtud at a weighted average
price differential of $1.40 MMBtu. EOG paid net cash of $8.9 million through
October 14, 2020, for the settlement of certain of these contracts, and expects
to pay net cash of $3.0 million for the settlement of the remaining contracts.
The offsetting contracts were excluded from the above table.

VI. Forward Looking Statements

Information Regarding Forward-Looking Statements


  This document includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of
Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements, other than
statements of historical facts, including, among others, statements and
projections regarding EOG's future financial position, operations, performance,
business strategy, returns, budgets, reserves, levels of production, capital
expenditures, costs and asset sales, statements regarding future commodity
prices and statements regarding the plans and objectives of EOG's management for
future operations, are forward-looking statements. EOG typically uses words such
as "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," "project," "strategy," "intend," "plan,"
"target," "aims," "goal," "may," "will," "should" and "believe" or the negative
of those terms or other variations or comparable terminology to identify its
forward-looking statements. In particular, statements, express or implied,
concerning EOG's future operating results and returns or EOG's ability to
replace or increase reserves, increase production, generate returns, replace or
increase drilling locations, reduce or otherwise control operating costs and
capital expenditures, generate cash flows, pay down or refinance indebtedness or
pay and/or increase dividends are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking
statements are not guarantees of performance. Although EOG believes the
expectations reflected in its forward-looking statements are reasonable and are
based on reasonable assumptions, no assurance can be given that these
assumptions are accurate or that any of these expectations will be achieved (in
full or at all) or will prove to have been correct. Moreover, EOG's
forward-looking statements may be affected by known, unknown or currently
unforeseen risks, events or circumstances that may be outside EOG's control.
Important factors that could cause EOG's actual results to differ materially
from the expectations reflected in EOG's forward-looking statements include,
among others:

•the timing, extent and duration of changes in prices for, supplies of, and
demand for, crude oil and condensate, natural gas liquids, natural gas and
related commodities;
•the extent to which EOG is successful in its efforts to acquire or discover
additional reserves;
•the extent to which EOG is successful in its efforts to (i) economically
develop its acreage in, (ii) produce reserves and achieve anticipated production
levels and rates of return from, (iii) decrease or otherwise control its
drilling, completion, operating and capital costs related to, and (iv) maximize
reserve recovery from, its existing and future crude oil and natural gas
exploration and development projects and associated potential and existing
drilling locations;
•the extent to which EOG is successful in its efforts to market its crude oil
and condensate, natural gas liquids, natural gas and related commodity
production;
•security threats, including cybersecurity threats and disruptions to our
business and operations from breaches of our information technology systems,
physical breaches of our facilities and other infrastructure or breaches of the
information technology systems, facilities and infrastructure of third parties
with which we transact business;
•the availability, proximity and capacity of, and costs associated with,
appropriate gathering, processing, compression, storage, transportation and
refining facilities;
•the availability, cost, terms and timing of issuance or execution of, and
competition for, mineral licenses and leases and governmental and other permits
and rights-of-way, and EOG's ability to retain mineral licenses and leases;
•the impact of, and changes in, government policies, laws and regulations,
including tax laws and regulations; climate change and other environmental,
health and safety laws and regulations relating to air emissions, disposal of
produced water, drilling fluids and other wastes, hydraulic fracturing and
access to and use of water; laws and regulations imposing conditions or
restrictions on drilling and completion operations and on the transportation of
crude oil and natural gas; laws and regulations with respect to derivatives and
hedging activities; and laws and regulations with respect to the import and
export of crude oil, natural gas and related commodities;
•EOG's ability to effectively integrate acquired crude oil and natural gas
properties into its operations, fully identify existing and potential problems
with respect to such properties and accurately estimate reserves, production and
drilling, completing and operating costs with respect to such properties;
•the extent to which EOG's third-party-operated crude oil and natural gas
properties are operated successfully and economically;
•competition in the oil and gas exploration and production industry for the
acquisition of licenses, leases and properties, employees and other personnel,
facilities, equipment, materials and services;
•the availability and cost of employees and other personnel, facilities,
equipment, materials (such as water and tubulars) and services;
•the accuracy of reserve estimates, which by their nature involve the exercise
of professional judgment and may therefore be imprecise;
                                       7
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

•weather, including its impact on crude oil and natural gas demand, and
weather-related delays in drilling and in the installation and operation (by EOG
or third parties) of production, gathering, processing, refining, compression,
storage and transportation facilities;
•the ability of EOG's customers and other contractual counterparties to satisfy
their obligations to EOG and, related thereto, to access the credit and capital
markets to obtain financing needed to satisfy their obligations to EOG;
•EOG's ability to access the commercial paper market and other credit and
capital markets to obtain financing on terms it deems acceptable, if at all, and
to otherwise satisfy its capital expenditure requirements;
•the extent to which EOG is successful in its completion of planned asset
dispositions;
•the extent and effect of any hedging activities engaged in by EOG;
•the timing and extent of changes in foreign currency exchange rates, interest
rates, inflation rates, global and domestic financial market conditions and
global and domestic general economic conditions;
•the duration and economic and financial impact of epidemics, pandemics or other
public health issues, including the COVID-19 pandemic;
•geopolitical factors and political conditions and developments around the world
(such as the imposition of tariffs or trade or other economic sanctions,
political instability and armed conflict), including in the areas in which EOG
operates;
•the use of competing energy sources and the development of alternative energy
sources;
•the extent to which EOG incurs uninsured losses and liabilities or losses and
liabilities in excess of its insurance coverage;
•acts of war and terrorism and responses to these acts; and
•the other factors described under ITEM 1A, Risk Factors, on pages 13 through 23
of EOG's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019,
and any updates to those factors set forth in EOG's subsequent Quarterly Reports
on Form 10-Q or Current Reports on Form 8-K.

  In light of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions, the events anticipated
by EOG's forward-looking statements may not occur, and, if any of such events
do, we may not have anticipated the timing of their occurrence or the duration
or extent of their impact on our actual results. Accordingly, you should not
place any undue reliance on any of EOG's forward-looking statements. EOG's
forward-looking statements speak only as of the date made, and EOG undertakes no
obligation, other than as required by applicable law, to update or revise its
forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, subsequent
events, anticipated or unanticipated circumstances or otherwise.
