Feb. 13, 2017 — Noble Energy, Inc. (NBL) provided updated and detailed guidance for 2017, including capital expenditure and sales volume expectations, along with various cost items for the year.
David L. Stover, the Company’s Chairman, President and CEO, commented, “Building on our strong performance over the last couple of years, Noble Energy is now rapidly accelerating our pace of development in 2017. In the U.S. onshore business, we are materially increasing the capital allocation to each of our liquids-focused assets in 2017, including the DJ Basin, the Delaware Basin, and the Eagle Ford. We will continue to concentrate on long laterals and pad drilling, enhanced completions with higher proppant loadings and tighter stage and cluster spacing, as well as integrated facility design. We have leading positions in two of the top U.S. oil basins, and we materially enhanced our Delaware Basin position earlier this year through the announced acquisition of Clayton Williams Energy. Our onshore portfolio provides some of the highest return opportunities in the U.S., and our 2017 capital plan positions us for significant value-added growth, near term and for many years to come.”
