America. you. come Thank Leggate first from of Doug Bank Our Please of ahead. question will go Instructions] [Operator

Doug Leggate

morning, you Thank everyone. and morning, Vicki. good Good

Vicki Hollub

morning. Good

Doug Leggate

page on take an gives least a your our but of Vicki you XX I like don't thoughts going how X.X should slide billion know forward. idea as to deck, at if frame the capital us it of that looks guide,

combined the is that X.X billion, substantially that, already plan X even more for capital still doing is your closer if combined the suggested. adjusting the African that on So to falling company than by assets, the suggests

wondered in speak as you're to you a what got thought, I've related Basin. speak the about just thinking particularly the could Permian to follow-up. on maybe I allocation if how So that, capital and preliminary a

Vicki Hollub

to the million $XXX be the billion. when capital gets we Yes. closer consider of achieve, equivalent to you levels billion, X.X But synergies The will our achieve as synergies. that committed would of that that and what capital we to we was activity X.X, had X down combined reduce $X.X

Doug Leggate

So allocated behind how Anadarko was terms explain that me had Well, only in acreage. in the activity, interest working of my the question. Permian. gets that what's the drop To on let XX%

a wells. dropping in there a rig Oxy rig has clearly a Oxy much but much better capital impact on dropping So has than lower then

I'm capital activity trying that Basin. So how to Permian within relative we about the do budget in think think about

Vicki Hollub

rig level, se. from investment Well, count a it view not we an per

you'll synergies. for you're wells a wells, just get working wells more drill, interest the if potentially to run same you're that's then lower more have developing So on but that you, going you'll

So we investment rig not from level look standpoint. at a it from an standpoint,

Doug Leggate

obviously, greater on follow-up as this forward. that you understand, obviously go you'll least specifically, focused of is giving $XXX unit but million us Ecopetrol could because income than with a any asset not on give from midstream share everyone with details you and presumably efficient. extremely on we deal Line wonder quite myself I right now of sight if thoughts additional monetization’s. I still better WES you My is deal capital looks included, how the distributions. it's the

So let any those jump I’ll someone thoughts on… and on updated else

Vicki Hollub

overall Thanks, pull Doug. have levers is I'd say about the thing of that really more of other terms lot to combination good a that with from portfolio OXY this the we the Anadarko do perspective, good, good, in an monetizations. and

impacting something things So joint the can do, of we we can negatively ourselves. do Ecopetrol there example with was creative one are how some without that venture

so the that, We kind and of say we with we're some good things. reason about dive there. asset what's we about lot divestitures, thing calls of have of happening it various So can confident after a take a our at we into look that incoming and can but deeper analysis make about is that I'll when WES, respect the to will have we'll to opportunities close, those

that grade do, to right we'll we high negotiate. The to would signal we want able that is our that we're -- we what want what can't so time. do And we able to would, now because really to to difficulty have compromise over be ability

Doug Leggate

advisor Can you speculation or whether had about press confirm the hired an WES? not you on

Vicki Hollub

us and with We are advisors advisors have various use some things. we always that helping so

anything business -- we So should because as particular made, in get their to that not think I advisors I That of on now we'll it's decision of we're that. our that we lots have thinking right signal bringing look think at no in feedback. be aspects

Doug Leggate

much, Thanks Understood. Vicki. so

Vicki Hollub

you. Thank


come Morgan Stanley. next Our McDermott question will of go from Devin Please ahead.

Devin McDermott

Good congrats morning the solid on results. and

Kenneth Dillon

Good morning.

Devin McDermott

by Doug's in on on actually up wanted also questions, I and start of capital of synergies one following activity reductions. some to the just

With the it’s initial week, potentially than deal next closing earlier now the target.

the post how plan, wondering realization of impacts synergy you address you quickly where the staggered happens and that initial was spending, billion if Is could will occur? something that those immediately if and versus So all, how, fairly at in reduction can occur? I provide that that. were or timing X.X some also the reductions be over on on it close guidance If growth time that can

Vicki Hollub

plan we're for to our capital meet going So this year.

the But we real-- close spending meet year, at capital look we'll this of will the come $X.X with the for to reduction activity with happening billion after level what's have the what So, rest the determine Anadarko in ourselves do billion for we'll year. their in XXXX. $X.X to full

and And we going after help certainly closing in the of is date our I that We close had in depends billion acceleration would jump-start synergies. synergies get see us a to XXXX. that to say X on that, committed the on really getting what

initially going a much of for So thought before that that's end be you started than it we being us. able could to do later here get very helpful August, to the when be

Devin McDermott

on second And question's side, it. Got OpEx Great. then actually stand-alone. Oxy just my for the

and and You lower quarter-over-quarter between had energy mix maintenance like a looks downhole of are reductions some it lower some nice there, drivers the costs.

going and as if EOR cost might what's wonder bit forward over time bit, initiatives could for reductions, utilizing on solar well. in the more in like just I opportunities drive cost cost those how a further comment detail you business down a power driving reductions

Vicki Hollub

been artificial really on these lift our it's artificial has down get was drive the they with make wells to deep to shale early too OpEx the Resources challenging better business because optimized. in pumping so as continuing Yes, lift, being

too challenging too the that, production, a for ESPs. and So little too for bit shallow, deep fluid

to use, hard lift really, the kind to it. really artificial worked how of optimize has find and to team our So right

get as course, lowering of energy that one the respect on much are general. COX to biggest that with the purchase our and of EOR biggest the in and at beginning the cost they business And of our cost they selecting business in two better helps. US, in And cost right the lift, energy the do is to kind EOR and it's of

So, to Low Basin, with going strategy help a certainly in respect COX install further our which reduce net in Permian is business we're electrical be to for because power to will our our use there Carbon the to supplying pure able ultimately stream operations. COX going cost, while also of

once install bit in installing at Permian in in some So -- more in we will the and and the start we it our little reduce most solar that the that and to so, lot, or OpEx operations really put get next that expensive part already solar EOR is the the good a to of it reduces year over cycle. interim, help a the plan but

that's helpful. So very

but the be do EOR of going time the growth to X and drivers combination things believe a the in take do that's I strategy we to helping in a or to it, it, start key going take to off for business to over to X one about it's of us years. have So continue reduce that to

Devin McDermott

Alright Great, thanks much. so

Vicki Hollub

Thank you.

That's model, will to that Basin, and That's going what that the the now comfortable why but very productivity we're see there, model we're that in using. in using D.J. outside areas work Delaware confident the basins. in in we're very why we're Powder increased on based the this other only other not we're

Hi, that is and but thing job add, Roger. this think, I The secret did Vicki great you covering only a I'd know that, our sauce.

So tools couple said, people, that combination like it's she because the mean the petro-physics, close having, a mean and that important with creates it the only to by data, secret just thing we've for the I reservoir replicated. that how of are and all it of the not been is, and integration we the Vicki on, hit time a really easy because advancing other geo-modeling, it think simulation, secret but sauce. is years It's value stress, sauce asked stimulation, worth our people now work of get I is the really not I and geo-mechanics, of things

those don't is, remove people, altogether. them thing tools as important the the things, have the one if the data, think other two optimal of if you you will, I or the they is And work

we other not at need look to it we the when goes So definitely just but and being XX excited there extract not all that Bone why performance reservoirs we think in thing what XX, makes of the apply in those value, show really just so the you able that's or unconventional to it It's reservoirs. because works, results.

Thank you.


Our next Raymond will question of go come ahead. from Molchanov Pavel Please James.

Pavel Molchanov

Yes, thanks for the taking question.

operating As is player simply of model, that you first marks Ecopetrol kind deal a you're going sort to instances of in about rather unusual for may a step. kind beyond of think you in, partnership other that seeing the skill this obviously that rely deleveraging, of active Are development and you be set particular the not on selling geography where acreage.

Vicki Hollub

help giving world, over wanting carbon the people also from reservoirs. and them opportunity what calls sources, then we are about industrial it that, to low and figure me with are and you how an business talk out to our do COX all -- with from exciting getting capture to help to our strategy Well to oil

capability, the have largest to the and we're for processing COX it We design enhanced oil we the the ability have handler of recovery in world.

revenue the valuations, that as has project, to participant to services for is opportunities -- for in that, there around happening for the some to through ventures come participation. in at calls what's been carbon in look cases, allowing low technical and so us to, earn with offers, a technical these are business projects these assistance only getting technical also some So our but possible we're providing not world

about that's we and going that's to that be thing one go one that to group different forward, lot That's get more ago. our years just there's a really because companies story, we're we're to doing now, way. people as a seeing on So few pressure happening of that's their much and unique and climate change exciting, something in do so what making interested more than

So that's look the ways are always losing monetize we -- There one eventual potential for but to without example. to things upside. trying

getting continuing we do ways to and that. So, look to creative at are

Pavel Molchanov

have noticing of me price on mentioned of you $X.XX there to kind ESG, up you your since U.S. not one lopsided. Well economics to would, some gas but that. the I because time realized quarter is point the are help just the resort in a there, in Okay. Permian, selling let in where shifts the flaring could the was that follow -- obviously gas

Vicki Hollub

agree way to that, do little routine it, bit wouldn't always try I explain as the just flaring we normal a that better. probably the practice, should I will gas power don't so net find and concept not do a utilize a that to and with We we would earlier, we mentioned

invested that $X.XX project start pilot in $X.XX, piloting or this where cost year lower it a if it. What takes which place us creates and was NET Power. it's gas electricity it and now, it it of great in and because last that together, rivers, year especially the the that's and strategic electricity burns does at invested creates oxygen in developed we're electricity are it that $X.XX new end is, with like or generate partner team, the to that opportunity a maybe that called eight using way and group it to to part-owner. and what the pilot before, are we put Our or We've costs, natural combines we you gives gas have concept the

it's just in pilot -- South the Houston It's, of is here.

much. make So that's the our will sold utilize that would is in as that solutions, our one that to of we it put gas nearly Permian. It if

earlier, So as it lower-cost give said enhanced will, that only recovery. will us our it to gas. use that it, off oil also, of pure COX stream utilize in a I way It not provides for

So better it's and opportunity way increase a benefit COX to also our to oil dual lower a of priced to you gas, production. having create the utilize our

It's to the but It's be dealing the that near that bit a have we're going the have to three Permian to to term, out, with have in don't see expect over we that able a flare. really unique next way years. installed we scenario little the in we of two, that

there. just gas ways to are and to have There get out certainly it's get for it's better value our then it it other the We it capability more selling utilize $X.XX. that to for

Jeff Alvarez

EOR injecting to And other EOR, the for gas. replace oil hydrocarbon better because but also economics basically gas, EOR the the for cheaper we've comment. gas. add Vicki's just one you're Pavel advancing not and with so COX thing the hydrocarbon Hey, get I'd been

don't So to thing, can you that's so flare. value continue But from. we that another you extract advance,

Pavel Molchanov

I Okay. Very Appreciate useful. it.


next Gresh go will ahead. question Our JPMorgan. Phil come from Please of

Phil Gresh

taking question. for my Thanks Yes.

combined you cash expect in XXXX. be $XX WTI at First, to business Vicki you made a comment free positive in Permian flow a your prepared remarks,

I be little first a business. is for just So wondering, Resources more it detail of that on just that, including is EOR more or was would standalone part the

level And help of underlying what have, CapEx Thanks. then, just rig you this in reduction think that plan context and that through to details XXXX. of count about overall us CapEx the and

Vicki Hollub

the be that at and level So for business we the it's projected it XXXX, in Resources would XXXX. capital

the at would have So -- XXXX given and that would for us be billion any be $X.X -- capital we additional.


X.X, actual the is run X.X the rate So XXXX. of the in

Phil Gresh


So you be are X expect from at in flow Permian you free and going Correct? to Resources positive I think XX. XXXX said you cash X.X to billion

Vicki Hollub

correct. That's

Phil Gresh


baked into And would I be to an CapEx cap, Resources' to the X.X equivalent so level get of that.

Vicki Hollub

of run in achieved the be the fully X.X; before will the which say of rate synergies XXX let's Right, X.X% make you sure use million, XXXX.

Phil Gresh


it. got Okay,

thoughts Second sheet, just latest I here. question, on the Cedric guess any balance

sub I X been think get times. along all has to target your to

thoughts level You've get but today wanting and to you Thank you there? quickly WES given obviously without can what leverage be might numbers new how and you. pull with JV there other to the any you about levers to announced that get

Cedric Burgher

Yes. you the primary side will obviously think Thanks, given the timeline kind to be are The XX XX on of sales of Phil. We've we of months, early asset that. a lever there.

there more that excess have a So, mentioned if free expect top and us direct have hit flow our the need to at We snag for whatever we we quickly. Vicki there sales get do very asset don't than to that us of of and need earlier, that priorities. that. list planned as We then fairly is reason they be, to think of to delever, we will also cash expect get if and

These but. think things allotted. in we can the happen overnight, we've timeline, get we there don't But easily

our say The second base $XX the highest too not I stop for would our it that X.X know times is and we're XXXX end thing and we're is much to we plan, debt, knock debt-to-EBITDA that our there, that oil -- WTI is going said of we've kind by of have that down. target, it's we our class, weight priority going to target not

We have it. the do means to

not and the going beyond too we're we we're We to time. of we even at pull that leverage XXXX, end through much lot that, do -- go down and can lower so get of levels stopping levers, and level that expect aggressively have a to but

So to to acquisition. credit we expect basically are, better to the where a from or standpoint we back be prior metric

Phil Gresh

you. thank Okay,

Cedric Burgher



next come go ahead. Please of Sachs. The from Goldman Singer will question Brian

Brian Singer

particularly regards just slide actually, follow-up XXXX. strong had a the of given I shown Good questions there every series year XX, morning. gain in a you. Thank productivity to but with

to and, performance well is, assets case base third to ultimately what second, compare what on process the if you continue productivity this first looked is, the and is is space XXXX that Oxy do an drive oil Oxy's? basis look an I as well and how appraisal gains Anadarko go on costs only The what your gap see realize is to need we for between same, through, base the to but at with XXXX to relative your case you will longevity

Vicki Hollub

them the enough I'm We what going take two dive Jeff. their on to it and do into start deeper, well but, first as specific we on before what but haven't is the a And a really one. can. our results like data know, see question to we gotten want wells, can in see be to to fortunately, of we'll little a, level toss a deeper have, second doing quickly we analysis to do data on I'll the that full as we answer doing getting they about here And that week. a that

Jeff. to it pass I'll So

Jeff Alvarez

Brian. Hey,

cuts XX it XX. been year last just that's to got first oil same. for question the like basis? I the on over a so cut. X.X roughly I This would of the years at that kind last we the about would XX, -- was, the were around oil XX, below on year, look total before XX to look It would And range say are reason what we've if right a get oil our think you Permian is, we've XX, look your resources I from hair year variability we our, Resources you

curve materially So it. look at you impact when wouldn't it that

a that's anything or didn't just a something not been Now just has with reservoirs where obviously them, and that point gas it's oil we drilling that's different problematic percentage we're expect. year less of so function developing. different have where we're this or It's ratios

Brian Singer

Great, thanks.

Jeff Alvarez

was your question, what Brian. then And other I'm sorry

Brian Singer

second was productivity longevity The continue to drive gains. the one to

that processes the talked the in have the you've, many technologies assets. how other you faced about. think In words, in tank you Oxy the on years of you've more do Just that

Jeff Alvarez

section time difficult advancing. teams performance, on Yes, just I mean, again, so see about It kept about, about, is, thinking advancing always things away that our the I what they're models Vicki working mean, the and the hard. are it's on XX the this talked we we like working one talk would I at know, can now understand teams component. to wells be , development every ability to changes frac only how at interrelate we I when given how changes, over time, not how you would with single a never in that able to understand multi-well it geometry look time, to thought a years how our is but well over time. or frac geometry we talked ago other each in time over blown Two the changes

to frac advancements. better to better the understand that we're out placements, Now better landings, that, can continue propel able we that designs, figure

you I XXXX are is, every answer performance development. out improve since aggressive make don't and it know well continue how they would really we how year, I teams figure going year they've to that done when to So guarantee I but it started the better, next we will

soon. time it's any believe that's to to So stop hard going

better and different will I rate. so just we're put but 'XX you will to things different just like get come value things do from or over continue you on different it it to drive areas, instead I focused to think on, going and from this it, 'XX of and 'XX drove and 'XX think to if

even that room the more rate value side. and performance, I than volume running but has just on think

Brian Singer

the Mexico and of any any the and and about going on combined company, retaining Anadarko, Great, thanks. commitment impacts assets to maintaining there? on of and in capital on Gulf talk the key then learning’s your assets have those Basin in DJ those Permian, are forward you outlook can lastly And outside that the growth

Vicki Hollub

one. that very that. Ken's involved been We'll let answer Well, in Ken

Kenneth Dillon

to again Yes, of the Mexico. thanks. Gulf forward We're in looking operating

were we're We this potential. I returning it two since to say, of BP long-term days with we Horn again, think Varstar before at always have but Mountain the we're former had involved Oxy believed time, it it. I to companies, operating thing asset even think really our I pleased separate involved as one in were

So up. the to that I forward think we're picking looking

of our long-term the wells goal to existing so with think the step Mexico facilities. I far Gulf to is flow deliver close cash stable through

Horn that So we very for approach similar Mountain time. see think Anadarko's and some back in I running with potential to can

Brian Singer

Great, thank you.
