Vicki, questions, may. if I've I got two

macro one sight $XX significant year. underway upper fairly of suggested on middle progress. the The by November billion of this release to of I'm first line is now. disposal right your Obviously, is a wondering, XX your target press there the just end change

And color just on still for confidence has to mixed be the timeline and on that can whether Algeria an Ghana, there or assets. color some the I'm specifically, to appetite those you wondering -- where the Any seems news on assets? that give and if reiterate associated is any target. So buyer update

Vicki Hollub

a divestitures. Okay, our Doug, full I'll update actually give let Oscar on

Oscar Brown

so Doug, Vicki. regarding start Africa. Thanks, Great. with we'll --

to and of course, of the work and divestitures. of we a Africa, governments Total positive the Regarding Algeria towards continue with resolution Ghana

with you associated something we as substantial We'll So so closing certainty, have timing and report both is become risk, increased more to when more that's there an clear. point about. out, talk

assets, these to cognizant as very in what's remain to definitive comment in very to agreement these again, we're by Total that already. them In retaining be beyond public sensitive Africa, are we constituents. clear, bound interest countries just to all -- their it's but with hard to also these and foreign investment assets, their important And around our is

I I So to can But a careful of that. couple we say. things think be want with

debt probably high significant know, flow as used assets very cash and down are to Algeria in and that you Ghana As quality, pay we've produce the well.

brought voted the Algeria the Algeria, has of observe, -- the thing of president, -- one is that In a Total, with is I which can new case I our deal has in in a since obvious, the guess, administration. our announcement new

that fluid. situation, pretty in is So particular,

we processes remaining look that hit So $XX that, to without as our the divestitures. with we -- of numerous hasn't Africa million to if sales or run hit is we'll changed, all commitment asset and as sales continue something you at the

So way is grant. to we really a great asset come in up keep protect the best but land that's that's these like an the broader another private. the sale, address as We example, that example to processes again, is question to found press your value,

such is some press Wyoming. So has from producing and also million use, other gas, mineral as wind that but primarily from forth. farms that. been grazing asset hard primarily trona, in minerals surface revenues and oil coal, X and acres acres X royalties, There's It over over and so and surface on includes million and from

a of large is competitive qualified in of States. participants that in United a communicated one clearly that. is And of It of asset. number asset be and mineral largest this state the the land while the owners and a winner will the process, in lot there's So interest

So again. going to example, do we that's a we're to think -- $XX lot get whole that But to We ideas our an and things pursuing. billion. of -- other don't actually we list we're those off do want

And everything it's really do, we important, too.

a to still about timing, we're we that relates the months done it environment, these the I stick our to timeline to announcement, the original original need back we to As original in in to XX remain confident the at little by Anadarko X get transactions understand market value. since And We're the announcement $XX schedule closing. and XX be committed on from get focused we'll frame. we acquisition, may But protect to billion our flexible of deal. value. within months time this

So portfolio. as we've of a of and terms assets and in certainty focused We're look, counterparts again, got team good We're we're mentioned, of dealing -- still in because, of a record got with of focused closing our over our divestitures. on on confident track we've billion all good $XXX value. success. We've

little give that a hopefully, color. helps So

Douglas Leggate

I months That's There's help if so, time? follow-up, but synergy on a it's rapid -- Vicki, quicker. all, can't pretty point. the And you're I'm done. But it getting very to know if the operational I only, synergy guess, just done reset that I thorough. My well, other you've number. progress first Oscar synergies X on in. of is really said leave potential at wondering it target obviously what ask, I'll seeing some And you're things. there. and

Vicki Hollub

that now approach our other we've we business amazing. that pretty to that can But progress synergy do. some organization focused is And of our been to that the I we sure know, as think, and -- the And for the reset the that certainly, been emphasize the quickly. target that reason outlined I at working things actually tell done that progress goal. we've capture Shell a versus own own all making point. we that our as and can you I have EOR you company, to we own on we're and part want synergies got we completed structure on We has and

The of next question comes Mizuho. from Paul Sankey

Paul Sankey

to And Oxy. paying to the that it really for you would less environment is about be cut case it being CapEx actually investment in is? priority you the want -- reassure us as Can really difficult dividend no and keep very the your keep order Vicki, to much as dividend it? the highest at oil paying that is

Vicki Hollub

Yes. Paul. Thanks,

repurchases, our it's policy things XX dividend our probably priorities, Our operations, certainly, it last dividend which cash is that. And first, after on our is, what we and for those flow come approach it's are. to maintaining the been the after maintain operations. capital based years And share

do other structure have to cost do to pay So flexibility impacts we continue that to our dividend. -- our the to

but Our scenario, this drive because through the cost we to intent efficiencies enormous today we is that in are don't expect and with have reductions. I our with this flexibility things of and to flows, situation. balance the teams improvements again, last, portfolio we this good to that doing can think, we cash our last but We're actually a -- situation

Paul Sankey

obviously, Understood. could for at it more And conceivably go flexibility I bit of your just could just moment, talk growth talk clear, about because if you to is could or you important your flexibility a the people. to cut? mean, you growing, And about flat be negative. you're growth some

what Secondly already could done you're just program, the think that be divestment said, Is I've thing people? gone line-by-line. you because reiterating important midyear, and to reiterate $XX other will But to online? the seen re-reported you I or you've read that it that's billion. clear, Obviously, sorry, the through by have very on finally, then

Vicki Hollub

address right. the first, dividend you're I'll and

-- scenario the environment a how certainly, the will don't have coronavirus We long we're -- in. built around this know last. We currently impact

continuity plans. we scenarios started And is done we at business for look in we've to situation initiated longer. what this our be looks do we've where to would lower what various actually a So and

lower So to the flexibility growth. first we growth our to have no

production. our Beyond to lower still have that, flexibility we that go and even maintain than the

hit. or being case. prices in a above bit. are coronavirus I we're because a the Because our beyond where the that, past we assets is said prices decline that the we've in of we remember If to by could and actually production that an lower that high-growth little the $XX So we this allow were scenario before -- think driven and now, -- have, event,

to for with in So we situation not that a going scenario that the have. it us that this with scenario would we believe long -- that's we is put it a so that last can't deal

So got and would make decisions on triggers. in, we've lines built scenarios and pull we've those time when got we

address So we're well this. prepared to

achieve And $XX scenario given with the their is things are. in will very every divestitures, to what But respect And should billion. we the the I adjust? we're this now the in start to what you trying that scenario? what we're are today, you And confident plans at that think decide company do do looking that will -- to

believe could achieve They but fact Oscar. we our will parties timeline just that the leave their synergies of interested can't I be in the We the situations some I'm that impacted travel. going believe the some can't that by pass right But now, it that countries. to of we're

are there -- that? what have have would you our on so And lay do be. impacts some could could interaction some that of travel more counterparties Oscar with

Oscar Brown


you and summed up pretty that's Vicki, well. fair, think it totally I

whether and to -- of we've say sight got processes we be of So is travel, of midyear we've I'd what line the environment got to this but we've the commodity, got volatility cognizant that. the it's going, all of have

think, focused we're value. I on again,

protect needs little a slip bit that. the to So to timing

I I understandable that you'd look for think we it's agree. think if flexibility,

Vicki Hollub

with can the from cash would have -- and Ghana, plan still gotten Bs the a to, But have the go Oscar as process we we we'll that flow if Algeria that work have we still other do same but asset with to I alluded and proceeds we would about believe plan impact. Algeria sales essentially that say replace we Bs,


Devin The McDermott next Stanley. question from of Morgan comes

Devin McDermott

that given plan capital So spend track if was for synergies asked -- in you I synergies, ranges I around on And for budget the could to of wanted versus original already comment reduction the you to you on, are kind that you've here the how achieve that XXXX made and original impacts build fact capital of your the that specifically. of hoping schedule, questions were XXXX? ahead on some already the the

Devin McDermott

a of oil And Low you're front. business as That wanted to proactive I have. the what approach of into I unique work in some see you're I Great. fitting with you large could given the anthropogenic a of position, meaningful somewhat question, and longer-term think the a Oxy a specifically there, Carbon Ventures doing if makes like recovery enhanced COX my one, business business. profile And it. return ask some Got is of to and was to it Low that longer investments, the in way you that Carbon how Ventures But and set about I of kind opportunity the second thinking use in of And term. relates more to those COX the the bit talk wondering sense. you on that

should there is may under not way going to that going of to the month targeting? Vicki, cash the be is longer a talking model? to flow about term, you that, the flow? a get you going and it. that are want there the you're at once the the years, But use cash how How the ratio the just target to ratio change that you to shareholder? obviously, next Is repayment debt we is reinvest, Is much debt the much how your on control. business I'm curious or return look X in priority, how

Vicki Hollub

really to scenario we that it where model over of be need the Well, today, we're the feel like assuming under working can growth were time. We X% is you that. we cap that a

capital organically standpoint, that is what go a to share deliver investments need repurchases But the we other that. growth generally So to from cash would sufficient. growth the X% think standpoint, we to beyond invest like or excess

ratio, actually. So I time, will it what know over change don't our

Paul Cheng

the And you then? price, rate be call Okay. growth net guys what Brent the target is under, $XX, say, $XX for it, will

Vicki Hollub

our X%. really going prices at capital as oil rate. deliver $XX investment that And adjust to X% the generally business is and go rate up. investment organic $XX We're that an investment growth. run our to optimum not We're capital up -- going will still to manage the

The Sachs. Singer next question Goldman of from Brian comes today

Brian Singer

with start couple to questions wanted from earlier. of on a follow-ups I

First, growth land environment, where right you since free your with going you last going grant, to lower dividend versus round flow the to see decline separately, commodity a low-cost from given coming to characterize you And financing then to cash there of debt would additional summer. weigh you now? no How on keep regards taking can from sustained? the brought up the debt

Vicki Hollub

I to say any over in on will the that. time. fact a along especially that with need just barrels we the almost $XX we've do don't our oil would We hedged industry that given debt. with XXX,XXX is take that day. we the sustainable for That, the not not We flexibility have that feel that fact think scenario,

would cash through work to a Resources time flow River, because with our the have little are Basin, this, very bit and actually Permian we to DJ and ultimately, now fast even recovery we production engines. production those with the power the So allow Powder the business decline

today, conventional growth time. profile from allowing would a when possible. lower were to have -- that And that now, ability production assets, flexibility. That we so that recover over we to Remember our have would have the had not back just decline. we But much been had

on to investments investments, dividend. capital is allow -- debt decline. not the organic We we would our would do take So capital we'd pay what

Oscar Brown

Real quick, it's Oscar.

land in flow haven't On about this, the we is But the I think associated with way like inherent grant, cash it the disclosed it. the the assets. value

a -- of the just of of as cash of to current there So in least surface at of and and value minerals the all future so flows as lot forth, the it and much kinds, and again, a minerals today. liquid lot -- and that the of the of in development value the is value that optionality hard and the minerals surface

it have this we of asset in like has on expect do So some of cash impact more with it traditional be because to terms flow, the asset -- potential you'd we sales. asset the the multiple will value expect flow, value higher cash while than

Brian Singer

Great. E&P Powder plays portfolio, and regards Permian the And my then follow-up to two is the with the Basin. River within

you just Permian milestones you highlight the well longer on drive well will laterals versus which and your wondered year extent the portfolio? the that any River that Powder expect within in developing other the On this to Slide what performance And year and see significant for outlook the each performance XX, is increase Basin measures? in and now then you play XXXX

Vicki Hollub

in the pump some that do, about With we but we've laterals, today, way talking the our frac team things XXXX really be from that. Resources Permian -- surprised. the And was XX% to the Well of X% is in can our where see had you not forecasted at the XXXX the clearly on put improvement I they range. way just business, say I'd I our jobs. we to our differences

near to that time. still things improvements can the that reserves. the to wellbore to recover near believe they I've lateral along to and I made some think previously. back stimulate Going further do over on there's the I room full work And more wellbore

I'd plateau think XXXX a number, I we'll don't that from to I do us -- to think expect hate give to So improve. XXXX. but I

I and we'll next going improvement think into this improvement year well. see year as

The comes next question of today Wai from Barclays. Jeanine

Jeanine Wai

Can of This we're or the on question and lot those discussion tailwinds. is spending both play couple CapEx. on the is so years? I Jeanine. mean, could rates thinking be how So potentially depending had growth maintenance decline quantify trends over Permian you rate, on could decline, Permian moderate the next maybe that a and of facilities-related We've would also far. of CapEx maintenance first My

Vicki Hollub

we is down The intensity that the at from and in capital-intensity that really look low right is a we XXs. capital standpoint, way see our now

the so that? And have the you And recovering our maintenance capital designing designs, time. so that shouldn't reserves do fracs ultimate over any significantly with believe our more from increase essentially can I make that think numbers optimizing they Jeff, sort we same that around we base around efforts of that production. the are

Jeff Alvarez

maintenance mean, Vicki that base is, think a you're with gets said, a your the is, with improve, larger capital expect we would even what as significantly that rate, to you on lower maintenance what's lower for the get said, normally obviously, then base, higher. is you go bigger, what to continuing with Permian going expect on I capital, Yes. capital happen. decline. Jeanine, drives what Vicki getting maintenance the growth wouldn't much and I to at Resources intensity But And up which

with We of to costs you're not lower place. areas improvements you're will And time already facilities because in able in leverage shouldn't opening that decline. lower as you get because fronts, facility that we up the or performance, see new the mentioned, new are

will business on to front. continue So get that better that

Jeanine Wai

really to is and respond great. prior up on interesting. Okay, Vicki, That's lower-for-longer willingness your My following comments second a question about on just activity, to scenario. potentially

little that the said environment. a or could depending you decline maybe You go on bit, even ex-growth

CapEx imply there could be reducing that that the and off Does non-D&C pushed for that all isn't year really activity. just any the non-D&C with CapEx

in So it's we and oil XX%. budget, the the those, that noticed CapEx about X gas and facilities of exploration between

could scenario there's keep and push that the maybe that off kind going. a machine you So of still some of potentially

Vicki Hollub

through first start the would first. lower capital capital to be go. goes less We've the that tiered capital, that And we having having to this, productive Yes. go we as and so our

developments our Now this CapEx that be where But be of would our what would could there that's future that a in where given we scenario, mean we facilities optimizing could in are percentage. a the kind higher in exactly point do.


question will final The come of Wells Read from Fargo. Roger

Roger Read

Gulf discovery, of like of possible, then the XX, I mentioned guess, Eastern on Mexico if additional and targeting you one Gulf the the thing exploration on touch I'd to in exploration on, out-years. or obviously, Slide the chart Mexico

Gulf a, question Permian that general it, other maybe in keep the that in does overall were think that with been with the footing? in we sound you stable about a the of relatively in lower-for-longer company? to sort and in exploration business the Gulf, oil keeping the idea production one that's you of call goals about manage constraints How sensitivity fit going here the period CapEx prices, on with need there the the asked on As end where on do and

Kenneth Dillon

cash It's the it's not generates of -- I'll one. of net a Essentially, flow. large that Ken. Gulf It's only free production Mexico flat. amount keeping take

on over that our the which focuses So XX-year flow frame. goal cash net constant is relatively a really plan, to free have keeping time

Horn really look better. was also. That better on continues of Central previous gun As interesting love and a call, I to originally our we one looks mentioned assets Mountain.

So we can we also activities see really where tiebacks. participating good areas. in around opportunities ongoing those near-field And for consolidate we're

back maintain -- going compete the really, ago. way portfolio. steady great all which goal we free history, flow are long barrels with the everything barrels, have cash that's So from really in teams, years the past can long-term to high-margin in the Oxy is net that And

Roger Read

a then great. Okay, And follow-up question.

Since other been earnings next the for the season. things front on, into you that's structure just and be to all mentioned, want gone deep Board You some we'll there on? of of shareholder the in time change terms on initiatives that proxy any change the in accessibility you'd that. have the curious, comment has call, probably obviously, was I an

you and that and have expect saw quarter I quarter in little coming pass to about can you charges first quarter, wanted fourth just it to bit talk Cedric a both to the one-time first that up? occurred what the

Cedric Burgher

Yes, great.

So are paid costs there's and the been to a different. they so questions here confusion, up the costs are going the try actually in of magnitude and around timing clear with logically some of one-time expensed number also cash to when will when and because the respect timing out to be we're

expense the through approximately fourth year, to incur we million to cost. in an item. million this And we integrated integration is billion that in quarter, an additional expect $XXX incurred costs, So and $X.X related $XXX

out was $XXX be out cash paid the in -- year million be in out paid this quarter, will that XXXX. remainder balance fourth the through of So and total paid expected to

So these They're phenomenally as paybacks it, good we with the looked are at paybacks. very good moves.

these incurring enable expected. to our bottom line sooner benefits earlier the flow so than will process it in originally And to costs the

we reflect Very year. Vicki this think ahead schedule. beginning to about of So the mentioned, financials are as plan significantly excited and we And are that that. going that
