Rob Peterson

comes Cheng ahead. from Please of question go next Scotiabank. Paul The

Paul Cheng

Two questions.

is actually Rob. flow put preferred the of actually First that looking the priority, at equity presentation, the your surprised in when terms at I’m it’s you I X.X%. high think Rob, retiring cash pretty given for I’m bottom,

the So, coupon I just debt. priority equity higher though degree, no even our a be for from some a deferred mean, that why different to not debt you would retire wondering such high to standpoint, than it’s start you that

elaborate you thinking. little maybe bit can So, of the that a

or variable down, that’s Secondly, yield data and it that break back since Permian, think, the now, or terms the come and some is terms you And that going can your stream? bottom, the Thank in you’re heavy to the number of number you. steady that to to is of throughout year, the that about a I page the And program? you including the run is is XX, that rigs of the you’re is program, related in or bottom of early heavy rigs on the wells. more that on number unconventional so wells gave XX going heavy out that pretty of trajectory,

Jeff Alvarez

Paul, this more that is second I’ll because your probably is a first I Jeff. think one one straightforward. little answer

little EOR, except we’re it’s trajectory. answer -- do coming businesses -- any EOR wells it’s together. the it’s in just this say, two ramp-up conceptually flat of include can you but Permian your would QX’s that fewer drilling for in a -- relatively because and than that’s rigs aren’t trajectory, a year. X And But guiding to those So, you, there QX, few Permian for a not plan I now does tell question, X, as on and difference, I bit, huge got it

if to quarter XX of ‘XX, So, back, then averaged quarter now of in we’re about going look ‘XX, third two rigs you rigs X rigs QX. and the in fourth we the average in

a lag online makes that, between that sense you Rob I’ll and it the huge lighter, So, about QX not little to just let for take And think there’s when trajectory first bit wells those. but one. be it’s your -- a difference how

Rob Peterson

Hey Paul.

see right Frankly, on list obviously, the the So, equity slides, the yes, do of of the two we’re project at the now. bottom the at you slide. is looking preferred top focused that pieces so

up So, questions on carbon capture I just follow few and with want a to the the targets mission business.

business matching how think you’ve big big a from role Vicki, update couple can you in your oil and a we ability directly of using I does the How versus tax us now. existing your capture an just about your sort capture revenue -- of maybe And infrastructure give your is review decades first, your credits just as to from comments, carbon? or made So, a pipeline our about, carbon from and infrastructure? think of business sequestering existing revenue XXQ of

COX wherever around it to for to we our need We fields. we go the the that need and to have move own pipelines

those infrastructure processing have pipelines. the also the for We and supporting plants the gas and plants

we our White So, and preference. the to company. deal think about they’re the through the to line, develop how EOR Energy, when why that’s we going -- maximize time reserves, made that ethanol I’ve that’s continue was with I an in mentioned when as And

and I’m the Basin, -- far Permian that Texas. to our in their in have Permian too not Basin, plants in in two a infrastructure Permian. plants So not COX are they’re get they And pipeline the will plants the that sorry. They from two have

operations So, our we’ll Permian. be getting COX and from that EOR plant pipeline into in the to the

we’re thing COX But, is the that air the good you is capture concentration don’t winds have missed where to some capture to So, of the the and infrastructure it’s can about you balance that definitely anywhere put air direct take world. advantage put need thing the really the people pollution direct the that trying of. because it around because

So, why right what the possible air facility capture it and the capture and the to us reservoir can too. Oman it direct the River, have to the Powder want in do we and that direct we into. put in to DJ, with close makes put or the air is it ultimately, Permian That’s Algeria hopefully

in the put wanted up the almost prove best The we We to because of Permian. beyond world there. for want. is the that is COX oil recovery. And we the opportunities way the best utilization place anywhere -- in can So, enhanced it for this it creates Permian

infrastructure. we’ve and size the else the got opportunity Nobody opportunity a we And good that good and that option, that do do has the our to maximize we we so, scale have.

benefits chemical then, the going our XX do does. about business as So, and next gas years our to to be you we business. business deliver we’re oil our And believe And as that it’s it. as low much said, carbon ultimately, and profitable as over very, very excited will that of X the equal

significant plan what able Leverage or the or for -- do is said plan next and have plan weren’t, an both? I back to first of just is question, think, base first to get XXXX early the meaningful peak year instead Our ‘XX. our question is year mean is this that improvement event a and might might to Paul’s corporate more for on completions in you kind pretty modest that in have. we’re but ready a amount to there were ramp into maybe corporate XXXX, or oil the year-end trajectory TILs ratable it for growth ‘XX get Does prices completion a you if maybe include ready to trying the in for XQ, get any kind just little Permian in CapEx the there’s XQ. to out bit ‘XX. of figure if on

Jeff Alvarez

the jump me and end. Jeanine, start, and Vicki in Rob on can then Let back

for production QX the average is obviously, year. lower than So, the

partly than how -- is But, higher little XXXX. late But heading of be X, wouldn’t partly X, started than of and are think every in QX, how three and X up going It’s program the of a I because It flows necessarily our that into doesn’t the development quarters look different. first increasing -- through. quarter, year is continually the be there then we it will it just to the because storm back higher that. trajectory like definitely, some as one. So,

I driving growth think, not as towards we’re XXXX. Vicki said, for

intact. remain priorities flow cash Our

free as continue forward from generating focused cash as move pace use the very that We’re fast we on we business can can. that that to deleveraging and -- flow

Jeanine Wai

That’s very great. Okay, helpful.

mix the can few a how time five-year guidance this runs issues being the how $X.X will years? Midland billion the as anticipate $X.X that I do CapEx, some the of can gross to For CapEx, but Permian net period the in there’s you flat some hold sustaining JV do over, out? Permian And TIL carry that know that sustainable? that next the with change over billion three year, you area say, like anticipate on

Jeff Alvarez

hit them. of points on I a couple Yes. mentioned you there, let me and mean,

it’s standpoint. a Midland So, from very intensity helpful the capital like Basin JV,

still a more little left XXX where If on the carry at look that, you XXX or than through, that. got we’ve

at another least through a get that So from standpoint. years will of efficiency capital us couple

as ramping that capital, intensity to asked a difficult this up were as three you just was And And to teams the I have where way. as our works years we opposite expected going continue we to this that’s example, when better. year the the it year as of resources today where ago. business we’re so because do capital be ago get in guess would to If low business half years usually wouldn’t doing that in us an what will be it’s be, where are we’re two

better. continue our teams to get and So, better

four me years it while now, to that’s I guess than what So, bit change to our from meaningful would a from hate Permian on going higher it surprise a billion wouldn’t be see I hold three expect or little to $X.X that be, to but Basin number a wouldn’t flat.

takes. puts I think, and you’ll get

That’s coming going as Our resources both from XX to XX. about down to decline continues down, driven you by come unconventional the to businesses, decline Permian going saw that’s Rockies, to in our our improvements XX. largely the XX% Also corporate from in XX%. in

bit. going intensity teams to So, forward. that better, also capital to expect get with as improve better and help that that the continue a should And I

I the years. over a So, I answer is, few next it short guess, go expect up but a the huge could wouldn’t little bit, change


question. with of The go your next DuBois Societe Raphaël question comes ahead Generale. Please from

Raphaël DuBois

was your take confirm new Could Thank is your bit hedging this is presentation you on surprised one can position further see remind I slide your you that in position us And QX? on oil. first hedging? about you not what crude in The package. for please to a didn’t a you.

Raphaël. Thanks,

Raphaël DuBois

one-off any, clinical your if you financial after same quantify cost for the this division? helpful. Texas quantified, Did you wave any very restarting My question in That’s And Thank wave? for question second the is, wells you. of division. your have about implications cold cold

Vicki Hollub

restart one, We of have the or oil not quantified either chemicals. and the the cost yet gas

up And of good I to looking the -- we take as oil some but The think see But, still going starting get quantify the to We’re of to damage cost. with and end the got chemicals good. to the very thing are chemicals still put we the no in this it’s their back a We’ve production XX% us in starting the the little and wells out. facilities, gas. is our is permanent while anything. business of back on,


today will ahead. Morgan. And questioner Phil with the Please go last be JP Gresh

budget one is year. this for on here just the First capital

every uses in guidance you’ve the inflation talked risk. barrel, $XX And be about XX% that the Jeff, know think, WTI potentially price. CapEx a for I $XX past, there could I the

the curious, what the seeing bit is in to to CapEx you if production requires priority be stick I’m or Thank to budget? the a are hard the maintain on pick inclined So, you. something And would to year, the it for the raising later times more were inflation? inflation, if you X up

Jeff Alvarez

the for true. mean raised, the change Phil, mean and time, seen little at you with We I and both generally Yes. with that the that in looking different down a flexing in past, a guys I time see changes as oil most in us guide we’ve this pretty of are it commodity is type good really that inflation, of deflation. changes What’s closely, point price. up in $XX you activity. correlated price

And you so, strong this seen time, price pretty know, in lately. run-up commodity a we’ve as

we We see historically haven’t that seen the that. correlative activity with change

so, really, you kind come layer And pressures of where of inflationary and for need and a the from down in when so from, lot activity on. changes the it’s resources

this time, a looks different. So, bit little

not huge pressures We’re inflationary seeing yet.

that. crews course, Of they number driven there’s are, of by parts are housing a market and more starts, that like running the of than frac things

And so, we have we into puts little And what and the built and you do we budget. know see, what get takes.

But change. in it year. that don’t now, absent we a at we inflationary on right to don’t environment. with at a was what with seen largely what right So, little But, expect early expect materially but we we’ve wasn’t poured of number of to reasons, see it least least change have for the to price that any lower that, now,

Phil Gresh

got Jeanine’s my follow-up along Okay, of lines it. was the question. And just

But, because DJ of to the what low some implication was curious Mexico, the You touched history. for businesses also, areas, of CapEx other relative is sustaining upon Permian. Gulf the are of those I quite

you. I wanted had just go would but capital ‘XX. yet, be could share those know be haven’t additional much XXXX really lines past on business and comment Thank else if to was anything I color sustaining what curious the you you interesting. on beyond So, any you for there forward other beyond just implication too calls, would of
