billion spending As how and drive the think level in refresh year, just this maybe year just that will on the company this you to but XXXX we us the think $X also growth just beyond. change about but could next also not overall you not step-function

Vicki A. Hollub

and market billion do are we the In $XX seeing XXXX, with growth deck we'll to But stay if similar, assuming what billion. see prices the have are in the expect $X.X same we exactly situation not spend in a That's this a in we strong $X telling program. rate all other exceed XXXX. between they things that's we slide The we're commodity that environment that that could you year where today. then is and

that seeing year would overall this we're the deliver corporation. for better a what rate expect We growth than

to what better average able that recently the an Having in do Permian signaled inventory be we the on annual going Basin. on to expect see growth to see grow beyond we're that basis. we X% than as think healthy we I of do, that well we've because the

from So and would start model see you'll you could to program, better year than next X%. forward of sort going what out be that

Philip M. Gresh

Okay, thanks.

on NOLs you sale, impact cash taxpayer. have question will the it us could, for With on being Cedric. Second just U.S. the the is and refresh this a asset you if use of

think just a looking is majority if for this think comment what to not I expecting at couple of assets Or this of would on to years. point. that that And whether we additional monetize? you you see you're could, monetizing you the you're consider should

Cedric W. Burgher

sure. Okay,

On expect have on the tax, that. We'll gain. we more to do

it's correctly ballpark. be NOLs XX-Q, for to we've course, you offset – a just look we close things or use Midstream assets gain, have going at exact, and our some to in time, have expected won't it's to in can stated. precise for predominantly if attributes got third amount. to can Of get see you It's cash quarter tax finalize But get assets. But the we're to you if but to you're we continued some close and sale, there tax position as not the held a trying it's the we

obviously and like those to be over going but of tax still use attributes lot would that in a half outlined go high and the Our in effective the a cash depends time, remarks, position, prices we've earlier up And to to several be the it back rate to on my then expect variables. tax in commodity we looks also, it but other XXs. expect It years it's out. year of

that and core we're have we any look we And within for In can that a have say on new of reinvesting all assets news of our good business day. to the the really always we sale, think you I'd we terms And at. verticals we're point, business that can this at We've you looking grow don't portfolio, but news the have. refine other for given the in you.

Philip M. Gresh

I buyback looking back. also Okay, commitment you've just strong next is last and $X flywheel. I'm the I the the know the I XX it's of it to the buybacks at feels slide we that the flywheel, guess price know lower a XX on spending to question about If just just but if commitment. over any billion that. color expect it's environment, XX, opportunistic, either months? should like way so Thanks. it's a we move there we on a my But to lower talked flexibility would be move pull environment, price on and to capital

Cedric W. Burgher

$XX. about. a lower like certainly especially is, then. works what investing We environment, price, it's down, those That's price and ramp is But lower at our environment, commodity somewhat. industry. obviously a lower of price obviously So that price Vicki for two we our I share on we're the environment If lower to as the mentioned, means together idea really plan the the track if answer tend thinking think ability capital to have, a commodity that

$XX-plus, a flow. down can be we think to make within and can within ramp and those at very But minus six-month period cash be need producer, a statements. low-cost few or You I plus time

cash we've reinvestment that really, we're seeing we're in year Breakeven cash that's within in balance close. that really targeting at price. So what spending a our that or in to today That's commodity position And now darn billion Plan, the it's achieved not we're so. then flow for much bank shares, pretty excess but for any this the so is $X cash

about share that, that environment. price those Beyond make lower to flexibility repurchases a in we've a price talking got environment, lower

Philip M. Gresh

you. thank Okay,


The Please next Raymond question comes with from James. ahead. Pavel Molchanov go

Pavel S. Molchanov

Thanks for this taking on about the the call. buyback lot We've a question. talked

Let me ask the dividend. about

because high One implicitly dividend reason of you're But long-term in yield is, recent XX% upticks? nowhere very of the been as growth. Is the highlights is the what's the the late, on the saying digits it's charts only slides single for near slow obviously on that low it stock years. that, or enough the

Vicki A. Hollub

we the what ratio increase so payout dividend. Currently, seen at level we've a higher is drive our our to do cash toward historically. can than we're increasing still What is trying flow

that to continue the our is that. aspects to employed, So for value part strengthen return of that of we cash our we ensuring build and increase make reason capital our sure proposition flow, all on increase on

milestones breakeven where said be strengthen cash not us us to were can further then our that, doing getting sheet get payout doing $XX. that from again. milestone could and we to away flow dividend neutral don't breakeven We to neutral we want breakeven $XX to gets a the able that the being at ratio earlier, at start through do to cash we to think grow And only we're point our – I exactly but get and what returns. As flow, now, really balance the to a

So that's what it. that really do driving the with parameters are we

cash few years. So back more the us the flow last increasing gives growing it over we've to done start than shares, buying ability

Pavel S. Molchanov

the Permian. Okay, one more about

Permian. more the to any or maintaining natural issue that Is more you that and bottlenecks? up today, midstream run having your hear gas What access against the about will need. talked gas? in risk having regulatory about liquids acreage about You've on the We the portion an flaring of limits of

Pavel S. Molchanov

right, All it. I appreciate


The Please comes next go from Gammel Jefferies. ahead. with question Jason

Jason Gammel

much. are wanted a in your the to firm extends obviously We're about which future. out ask blowing Thank where I a very period into pretty bit. just differentials transportation, far now you

firm out, So I level the party, a of type then maybe differentials that interest transportation to And an question arrangement? is Would that you in with for lower you another extend I guess have into terming out today at period but potentially any that parties other suppose a annuity? the would twofold. is that turn by multiyear approached are it being for than

Vicki A. Hollub

where we'll can the try do periods also over like both feel of to now, times the doing situations we to of little keep want also ensure risk. benefits we're we the of differentials is can side think when where advantage reap will will that But where be We And to see high. long see we're we that manage bit the cycles that. to that We've continue we some going to other as this but that. we take what there downside a are exist, strong bit term, that done balance of of we little a flexible so long-term

contracts this So without put the on together during but us value downside some destruction. protect we have period that will

Jason Gammel

That's great. Thanks, Jody.


Roger Please with from comes Read Wells ahead. go Fargo. question next The

Roger D. Read

growth, just Good maybe about to morning, thanks. Vicki, as current the let's Cedric, Maybe oil there. idea, have, dividend an say dividend or question to follow growth? of ultimate support or And up prices needs be recent production Pavel's you to assuming on where paradigm do

Vicki A. Hollub

and But I'll and goes breakeven basing out it to $XX it it. at really around back $XX. being let at flow finish neutral start Cedric cash cash flow

lower we neutral continue cash those we through our As be able to flow points. and breakeven to start will grow to increased production,

back that it's modeled. shares, lower to We've be looked the continue but that, part and we're capacity to the that to reason to can trying the of that's head, us for today by to at grow be start doing where those buy and going what dictated gives we and and dividend. we're As

Cedric W. Burgher

that, just XX, the aren't I'd payout bars, little we things. where were slide dividend a we Roger, mention put about, shows those well which it thing on other The the couple there on we've is historically, is above and of One we XX%. in on talked below boxes ratio

that And we've by much trumps grow so, improve in focusing you're ratio, doing however, on to that, it's and talked your coverage it allowing so, yourself year It's so ratio. returns. we've also doing grow or shows how That the everything But everything. progress made last your about. just payout

We last it we few a We're have just that going to meaningfully, ourselves number. will the set has to will years. meaningful to combination as dividend. done an and modest as box in look so will in that get grow high we And we've been help in forward We'd year. it It's at We don't And that way. that up past. the the exact more the not the payout the at on time in will grow reinvesting degree for put more rate like a growth. growing buybacks past, love do But every more returns. dividend it; us ratio it over

Roger D. Read

are Can Jody, of maybe things I'm Thanks. that's completions the Aventine the well direction efficiencies in an way seen the of not specifically the impacts side, how the some point. then, but you, drilling the and Okay, recognized as this part along? increase this some at CapEx carrying those if of us change and that you've of just helpful. on to mentioned you I maybe And of give thinking could you've efficiencies of year. you idea

Joseph C. Elliott

earlier the live big a in of is year. went Aventine part We this. Aventine with

So improvement. not tariff of impacts, drilling process we're optimize to continue wells, and just efficiency any the real inflation kinds to get or those are drive engineers doing how efficiency. this completion Aventine our the about offset will with things but And excited and work

Roger D. Read

or the ahead on productivity in there. was an operate running to of the curious And per earlier specific tariffs, amount were mentioned getting budget basis like but company another day question on stages on on There if in Permian done they of that completions productivity. the was stage just improvement quite their were very doesn't were per Nothing I the well a their budget. seeing daily maybe Permian you in that relative call a

Joseph C. Elliott

getting highlighted a time-to-market. cores Again, is we when look talking are we the we're done seeing brings you just think in improvement. exactly same I about, some the in of That so that Mexico forward. what improved capital New month, spending at We've of slide capital We're go increase stages XX, XXX talking the back you with one resources. that more if additional you're through pumped about.

capital, seeing are on time-to-market. slide, positive better are impact. interest, more some if things you'll the kind that that And that working see time we So of are there driving spend you that increased

return activity a capital And Permian by additional employed spending cash in accretive capital so it's on really Resources. this

Roger D. Read

what try and to going to just appreciate between out we've budget try was that. try. you but I I get got we've to got to actual, draw it to
