EOG Resources, Inc. is one of the largest independent (non-integrated) crude oil and natural gas companies in the United States with proved reserves in the United States, Trinidad, the United Kingdom and China. EOG Resources is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and trades under the ticker symbol “EOG.”

EOG’s strategy is to generate the best rates of return by controlling operating and capital costs while maximizing oil and natural gas reserve recoveries. EOG strives to maintain the lowest possible operating cost structure that is consistent with prudent and safe operations.

The company focuses on integrating technology such as 3D seismic, core analysis, and microseismic to develop proprietary petro-physical models. These models inform the company’s execution of precision horizontal targeting and customized advanced completions.

In order to find and develop low-cost reserves, EOG prioritizes exploration and drilling of internally generated prospects. This strategy is intended to consistently deliver cost-effective oil and natural gas production that maximizes cash flow and earnings, allowing the company to deliver long-term shareholder value while maintaining a strong balance sheet.

As of December 31, 2016, EOG’s total estimated net proved reserves were 2,147 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMBoe) comprised of 55 percent crude oil and condensate, 19 percent natural gas liquids (NGLs) and 26 percent natural gas. Approximately 97 percent of these reserves were located in the United States.

EOG’s total worldwide production in 2016 was 205 MMBoe.
