Devin McDermott

morning. for question. Good Thanks the taking Hey.

here are the improved about and question of where can closing Anadarko the transaction. So, near-term the base should or Resources. the that’s within I to And you portfolio, between terms you legacy strength the the of your is, I of out that I you portfolio -- some increased opportunity an really one should the the on about ask the guess, wanted improvement of Oxy is think some the production, the legacy in in about difference Permian of And is how strength the in across of kind uptime specifically production onshore is the what Anadarko, U.S. further size versus in say, more uptime of first know, called particularly all talked opportunity your I for there. onshore quarter, from you in since talk one U.S. we uptime? drivers

Vicki Hollub

also things that further number Basin, some that could they of some to where our done and Permian number Okay. then to of get that to of do associated just lower in that the system uptime issues done them we We’ve given try improve onshore that so occur was operability, and that and working which infrastructure the we easily organization. to so in get infrastructure scenario, and the the WES have improve the part could one, to of WES as electrical as start when they any the sooner. start with the occur such storms particular, issues things to of frequently electrical operations, them ultimately address the to was besides wells was ensure them up occur one we the isolate with some us production identify or issue of volume that -- increase our for opportunity On working wells to isolation that’s and impacted could, we

So, down optimized the to down reliability the sure more and secondly, just facilities around prioritization of that’s working facilities thing. infrastructure. It’s wells and it’s And operability been terms our reaction that was the have and in we’re the it really to one making out the we was Then, were that in when most. third efficient the getting possible. the way on that wells most on things ensuring the matter doing we’re that thing focusing that

onshore, significant Anadarko that too. the the Permian think made areas the we also made And I So, made progress called And progress. in they’ve out we Basin legacy where within tremendous DJ progress. has been

a have didn’t we side, Oxy downtime. the high On

downtime the Anadarko, have that more I say time have know upside, great a we don’t get every that, a I of teams worked job associated on with So, and been we’ve kind that but done has address mostly to the fooled that. I lot it. legacy

But, had scheduling significantly, is we uptime Our team for more areas the right in can on focused has time to we get the that over in we’re increased work. areas some out I the like electrical and responds. the and to think, the those the remaining ensure just It’s way. in hardening, done that we’ve system, where do done

be But, will I little bit probably there we’ve more. of seen think, the a that. So, bulk

Devin McDermott

detail deck, some recovery talk of And and in investments, could That able the for of it, remarks, capture was in the the second on my a now. Got to if able you’re been of Basin. little enhanced the this you business. leader planning cost time some Vicki. you’re it’s offset some you the question front in amount that guess some air sense. have given direct your well on detail even on through And Permian great. advance plant savings there’s Oxy within while low-carbon as need goals. this I over see slide And a oil types has the business, the a of profile building your And for to and more low-carbon think your bit return to the additional you within COX U.S. makes about wondering you’ve then that I good of see capital been downturn these that you spend; scalability strategy the of really industry there; this closing the And I importantly that on within is

Vicki Hollub

Thanks for Devin. question, the

have this. As you in mentioned, a leader been we

oil the or oil the Vicki, what about -- is is that level, oil much different, $X.X CapEx curious look price market is is you And along guess, to use talking us Good In the the only that and what going is going a higher the sustaining CapEx you’re on of you. that importantly the maximum that cash. if ceiling other that accrue in your the really of and conditions. are say investment, fourth consideration? to the price words take bad? frame be based And the and like, other price that billion is is whether the the going Thank to that prices XXXX. if this much in it for morning. over to CapEx, actual is line, factor you that be to more just at, net going Can is in that there capital at minimum I year, your look than the only you How strip is into fact that budget? that Rob, going for lower capital million are or quarter is trend $XXX that that the

Vicki Hollub

we than what’s strip $X.X the Yes. Paul, prices is driving what question and at on with to would take more the view if oil we higher oil account than our even sustainability. capital, for a XXXX, capital sustaining prices prices. into expect. capital to We respect just your the And, maximum we are be look billion,

thought For very demand quarter some than time -- with by the -- so that be that. at higher would ago happening higher $XX. prices have we looking inventories like may talking because We a fundamentals that. example, world what’s while heard things that about the around were this than believe never or people by and I much and closely the and

basing and/or just about say cautious program strip prices. near-term very we’re on our So prices what might some about they believe

allow coming We’ll Board balance a the conservatively. flows in. us capital to XXXX into would cash recommend that go will we to So,

activity a can in we’ll discuss that’s the we things to we resulting one were we on way rigs efficient they And to Board. the way decrease safe, do And as of And we down. XXXX. almost us then that the bringing major we talking to way, that flex our they’re to important efficiency it our that’s and and achieved last and activity start billion way and about the minute of that we’ll having can -- you we’re we a was them foremost, process. be the teams a lower in be capital back work kind teams allow in to a the to rigs to we so, brought ensure to had And they lose our if certainly, up and than teams been. in planned efficiencies that as of it’s it’s that did this Board, in And have and activity. we’re if up, sustaining down, magnitude seeing have to They’ve back a it plan down. secondly, is be scenario increase ramp necessary, from the easier to saw of been, to But that, ramp now. where shutdown can cap. view if do and that in bringing going something ends gives way efficiency that. same they do to successful the on recommend unheard and to don’t as in have not, you If where then scenario as when if in a need that’s of And the the with safely; to always $X.X flexibility a our how the as they chance than activity credit and doing first try we flex flexing And industry just a line up they the

really we’ll is with But, the year we we’re reality in happy So, will $X.X activity, increased cap of spend XXXX. really, we within budget with X.X reach that this this X.X see then to and billion the can our that. if

Paul Cheng

Some the think best the can that your I to competitors asset? gas Is is to that or follow-up still will Vicki, from that? the the that your CapEx on well of Permian of is shift something gas consider, just have you that because oil. outlook, decided natural that you more

Vicki Hollub

gas us point. oil best and to in don’t gas the new East any Well, -- and Permian need is investments in have And Al the important in investment but this point those very investment other we the We wouldn’t world. our intention still value, do are gas our assets much we pure make U.S. build our any assets we to that asset Dolphin Hosn nothing there to and build at that around is this and Middle at -- do

So oil. go certainly, dollars will our investment to

Rob Peterson

capital just close question. your accrual out to on Paul, And

in slightly quarter, accrual which your in can think on, third question capital the actually is I so, in intuition you and Your spot the see is positive.

levels accrual reverse the of activity when the pick itself As it up, capital will sharply activity coming we from out first quarter. reduced what did

is intuition your So, that. correct on


come with America. question next Doug Leggate Bank Our of Please will go ahead. from

Doug Leggate

It’s morning, -- a Vicki. to guess, I Thanks. question. follow-up good Paul’s

you is And just my or guess for I a viable issue the a lot coming it is get the at in want industry by most of because year-over-year confidence what capital-efficient a spent. it’s significant that production, million leave you with $XXX your your of still can portfolio confidence is it’s market issue, of obviously understanding facing $X.X margin. some about midpoint some that. So, that there’s capital level when as to is, does is momentum how decline. that in But, fact the to the and timing the some a in just -- give very level being questions billion QX, capital you feedback you’re your in

Vicki Hollub

well efficiencies that high teams are that achieving have side also efficiency we’ll and our capital looking because We the the deliverability. that at confidence on we’re the achieve

point, at confidence So, this we with do billion. high we’ll sustaining production our that $X.X have the meet

Doug Leggate

from some clarification, the of just in downtime Mexico So, got you’ve Gulf for QX.

So, with that along is goes that? oil what the number sustaining

Vicki Hollub

that taken average volume So, XXXX. try going the the downtime We’ve number account maintenance. is production for the we QX to we that into to into be for sustain

Doug Leggate


So, what that number? is

Vicki Hollub

that Are we guiding to number?

Rob Peterson


Vicki Hollub


Doug Leggate

sustaining used and together, you price what it the is in And, do me there. to I’ll one $XX for leave so Last It’s synergies Thanks. be with What think a worth billion, then. oil dividend. It $X.X breakeven Okay. your on sustaining price? you $X.X all oil capital? today the net breakeven billion When is a capital try.

Vicki Hollub

Today, But, a well below $XX. looking below breakeven our we’re or at about our you’re talk if the on capital, is sustaining. because in sustaining is in our -- $XX level below breakeven basis, of $XX well of which current you well below it’s it quarterly capital. CapEx, When

would into before of high-XXs of payment terms the expect going the breakeven we to XXXX, in price in preferred. the So, be


from will Our question Singer... Brian next come

Vicki Hollub

again And thing him should told on know talk a those our are depends I other Doug, is chance when Thursday, you The I’ll get I just also I would yes. to breakevens talking we’re before assumptions up that critical have for -- be hold second? -- that to to a could I but Brian, your about considered can. And will and Oxy be. what midstream on say

Brian? Okay.


Goldman Brian Please ahead. from Singer go come with next will Sachs. Our question

Brian Singer

Is be down, to that fourth this and keep be coming fully your flat? that on production capital? production capital, follow $X.X you life that ‘XX do as would will you, or Thank you reserve see would replacement billion. even reserves, do up morning. solely the that to expect production capital a good a the XXXX flat maintenance your or wanted levels, replace quarter i.e., sustainable I XXX%, further maintenance at as And, maintenance stays

Vicki Hollub

is capital, the in sustaining build developing. XXXX XXXX. that we’re and at to efficiencies look the deliverability there. this get have the The program We’ll XXXX that But, of XXXX a capital dependent for sustaining when we will be we on

more midpoint that And starting in XXXX. look so, of at we’ll

to then, the for So, more to for record-setting more we to get that we -- a really is delivering Anadarko incredible program. now as there you area something record Basin. and it we’ll of for learn it broke example, And exciting the results bit but a is an the record was What’s about able be well on the assets, the us. both, Silvertip Oxy’s little Permian the XXXX closer happening what’s creates uncertainty provide

And so, now that is our record.

forward. deliverability, at continue just we our well And sustaining capital it so, to means going we’ll what as look improve have for to

Brian Singer

follow-up Great, thanks. And regards ventures. a carbon then, my to about with new three-part the question is

business first The you a is makes potential call think business to the less compared I greater earlier petrochemical sale. whether and strategic in now. wondered that delivering is, the I asset petrochemical the candidate or contribution what And for the

sense further incentives, here start that reduction, looking like you when in think mentioned you XXXX is of the that direct extent investing goal? And cost what be you that you’re one the others? Is to which the the You and makes considering a of capture. main in timing plant for that’s a technology key that can absence government the planning air that returns-enhancing or the deploy, were are scale to then,

Vicki Hollub

air of makes about Because the things the it the direct of development two are of which would uses this And uses comment OxyChem one, Okay. we make. what I’ll do the wouldn’t begin fact, because OxyChem with that, to PVC, OxyChem. replace trying facility It the of really in lot a with provides one -- associated want is OxyChem. or Oxy synergistic business to products something we’re that the capture. low-carbon in this would not with employees about OxyChem very OxyChem the ventures. is some make No, to direct our divest capture share

process, Second in and used chemical thing is we���re direct capture that’s potassium that the… a hydroxide is the air

Rob Peterson

in Largest the country.

Vicki Hollub

country. the in Largest

Rob Peterson

world. the largest Second in

Vicki Hollub

the Second with potassium largest in to world respect hydroxide.

a And on lot on capitalize future of to there for and So, believe that. we more into will OxyChem we’ve synergies. there us want We this. even is be known this the with synergies all along,

So, important. that’s

Phil Gresh

Good morning. Hi. Yes.

out then additional you point mentioned Vicki, would the looking in about, your flow time. you to? billion $X major beyond fourth ultimately that probably we in that something presume you will want question, do where And once broadly, relative and more you should XXXX. achieve think with the the like you be to just talking had chemicals be I table quarter early you’re having cash where First that $X XXXX, at off the this in billion generate expect sales leverage asset to it asset guess, to sales to not those to get

Vicki Hollub

XXXX. XXXX the with than reduction. cash will reduction flow have intend do facilities; it at happening QX divestitures getting into is said XXXX, healthier base we’ve least, what than priority our from to well with We and to off to the to more and to see our we’ll year, start I now that’s meet of second pay take that where -- -- be. to flow we’ll where and ensure cash much early get going it’s we’ll on will using prices in same, our it’s to that focus advance early balance where maturities where maturity maintain is we to flow more us first that’s at our where think, down. for And maturities debt time. have are is cash at where can. I time, respect next believe remain priorities leverage respect be just still we the cash need prices our to and to But, flow our our is And that -- to that to

Phil Gresh

sustaining breakeven Okay. question, glue maybe WTI was CapEx. And together quick. high-XXs just your clarification to real second two a then, on I’ll One cover

there? that both quarter and to midstream about be would actual your comment using assume my of And businesses for and production Is or you the just you Permian Thanks. that oil mix Was rate provide quarter to play it how gassier could you’re general? those the a driver question chemicals. that as bit then, lower the assumption in fourth to made So, You mix in of anything in as out? the DJ. second here, expect perhaps fair a run there

Vicki Hollub

this oil that continuing due fact we weren’t gas the decline that ratio more -- expect the the is partly development the I’d with adding slight in gas increase increase new program This would production. be stable. to --

business the ongoing haven’t we With going year, to don’t assumption guided about is will the OxyChem be, next for we be to respect Midstream that look issue an situation. on to that. and of the us. optimistic depending But, to going this So, what chemicals we’re COVID is how expect

timing is this. don’t be. business And, that now. right that will back to anything be going believe we to not is happens, when know what We that going do we’re guiding there do progress well so, pretty the But, chemicals we And made. believe just from the

Rob Peterson

between think, And attacking of the we’ll Yes. divestitures timing good very balance absolutely, those. debt a and to question. take towards Roger, the proceeds from of approach continue and sheet thoughtful management I

surprising in $X And we with start so, us again to similar those quarter certainly a the billion market moving it at third did. and be way the the for point some that wouldn’t in that out raises did access in we

so, opportunistic We’re very trying to our and done those to value we’ve to that that now be us for about for a approach for And, when the Company so where thoughtful to so at that have best job runway can we the as then best value we the get a occur. -- we’re that the and market looking for leeway, they do frame. a we continuing position to divestitures that sure access Company make not the divestitures.
