1. Site User Agreement.
Noble Energy requires that all visitors to this website (the “Site”) follow these terms and conditions (the “Agreement”). By entering this Site you acknowledge and agree to the following terms and conditions. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and Noble Energy regarding your use of this website and supersedes all previous and contemporaneous oral and written agreements between you and Noble Energy regarding your use of this Site. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, DO NOT USE THIS SITE.
The information contained in this website is provided solely for convenience. The documents contained herein are historical in nature. Therefore, events following the date of publication or subsequently available information may have rendered obsolete the estimates, assertions or other information contained in these documents. Noble Energy makes no representation, warranty or guarantee as to, and shall not be responsible for, the accuracy or completeness of this information, has no obligation to update any information provided to you, and may change the content of the site at any time without notice.
3. Forward-Looking Statements
This website may include projections and other “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Forward-looking statements give our current expectations or forecasts of future events. These forward-looking statements include statements about the following: our growth strategies; our future results of operations; our liquidity and ability to finance our exploration, development, and acquisition activities; our ability to make and integrate acquisitions; our ability to successfully and economically explore for and develop crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGLs) resources; anticipated trends in our business; market conditions in the oil and gas industry; the impact of governmental fiscal regulation, including federal, state, local, and foreign host tax regulations, and/or terms, such as that involving the protection of the environment or marketing of production, as well as other regulations; and access to resources.
Any such projections or statements reflect Noble Energy’s views (as of the date such projections were published or such statements were made) about future events and financial performance. No assurances can be given that such events or performance will occur as projected and actual results may differ materially from those projected. Important factors that could cause the actual results to differ materially from those projected include, without limitation, the volatility in commodity prices for oil and gas, the presence or recoverability of estimated reserves, the ability to replace reserves, environmental risks, drilling and operating risks, exploration and development risks, competition, government regulation or other action, the ability of management to execute its plans to meet its goals and other risks inherent in Noble Energy’s business that are detailed in its Securities and Exchange Commission filings.
Forward-looking statements are typically identified by use of terms such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “intend,” and similar words, although some forward-looking statements may be expressed differently. These forward-looking statements are made based upon management’s then-current plans, expectations, estimates, assumptions and beliefs concerning future events impacting us and therefore involve a number of risks and uncertainties. We caution that forward-looking statements are not guarantees and that actual results could differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. Investors are urged to consider closely the disclosures and risk factors in our Forms 10-K and 10-Q, File No. 1-07964, available from Noble Energy’s offices or website. These forms can also be obtained from the SEC by calling 1-800-SEC-0330. Alternatively, you may access these reports at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov.
4. Cautionary Note to U.S. Investors.
The United States Securities and Exchange Commission permits oil and gas companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only “proved” reserves (i.e., quantities of oil and gas that are estimated to be recoverable with a high degree of confidence), but also “probable” reserves (i.e., quantities of oil and gas that are as likely as not to be recovered) as well as “possible” reserves (i.e., additional quantities of oil and gas that might be recovered, but with a lower probability than probable reserves). Any statements of reserves are only estimates and may not correspond to the ultimate quantities of oil and gas recovered. From time to time, we may use certain terms on this website, such as resource potential, reserve potential, probable resources, possible resources, contingent resources, prospective resources and exploration target size. The SEC guidelines strictly prohibit us from including these terms in filings with the SEC. Investors are urged to consider closely the disclosure in Noble Energy’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, available from Noble Energy at 1001 Noble Energy Way, Houston, Texas 77070 (Attn: Investor Relations). You may also obtain this report from the SEC by calling 1-800-SEC-0330 or you may access these reports at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. In addition, reconciliation and calculation schedules for non-GAAP financial measures can be found on the Noble Energy website at www.nobleenergy.com.
