Risks
  • Discoveries, development or acquisitions of reserves are needed to avoid a material decline in reserves and production and failure to adequately fund these activities could adversely affect our properties.
  • Our international operations may be adversely affected by economic or geopolitical developments or by violent acts such as civil disturbances, terrorist acts, regime changes, cross-border violence, war, piracy, or other conflicts.
  • A change in the fiscal regimes and related government policies, tax laws and regulations in the US and other countries in which we operate may adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.
  • A change in international and/or US federal and state climate policy could have a significant impact on our operations and financial condition.
  • Exploration, development and production activities carry inherent risk. These activities, as well as natural disasters or adverse weather conditions, could result in liability exposure or the loss of production and revenues.
  • Development drilling may not result in commercially productive quantities of crude oil and natural gas reserves from unconventional or conventional resources.
  • Exploratory drilling subjects us to risks and may not result in the discovery of commercially productive reservoirs.
  • Our receivables, hedging transactions and cash investments expose us to counterparty credit risk.
  • The marketability of our production is dependent upon access to gathering, transportation and processing facilities, which we may not own or control.
  • Our ability to produce crude oil, NGLs and natural gas economically and in commercial quantities could be impaired if we are unable to acquire adequate supplies of water for our drilling operations or are unable to dispose of or recycle the water we use economically and in an environmentally safe manner.
  • A negative shift in investor or shareholder sentiment of the oil and gas industry could adversely affect our business and ability to raise debt and equity capital.
  • Global populism and general political uncertainty could adversely effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.
  • Crude oil, NGL and natural gas reserves are estimates and actual recoveries may vary significantly.
  • We operate in a litigious environment.
  • One of our subsidiaries acts as the general partner of a publicly traded master limited partnership, Noble Midstream Partners, which may involve a potential legal liability.
Management Discussion
  • Regional Gas Sales From Leviathan Field By January 15th, we were selling natural gas from the Leviathan field to customers in Israel, Egypt and Jordan. First quarter 2020 sales volumes from Tamar and Leviathan increased 80% compared to fourth quarter 2019.
  • Progressing Natural Gas Monetization Offshore West Africa  During first quarter 2020, we progressed construction of the offshore pipeline which will transport natural gas from the Alen platform for processing at Punta Europa. Additionally, we finalized commercial LNG sales agreements for our Alen natural gas monetization project, securing sales to a large multi-national LNG trader. The Alen natural gas monetization project provides capital-efficient access to additional reserves and our entry into the global LNG markets. First production is anticipated in early 2021.
