Founded by Lloyd Noble in 1932, Noble Energy has 80 years of success in the energy industry. As one of the first independent producers to explore in the Gulf of Mexico, the company helped shape the industry and its own future success.
Today, Noble Energy is an S&P 500 company with reserves of 1.2 billion barrels of oil equivalent and assets totaling over $17 billion at year-end 2012. Recognized for innovation, flexibility, exploration proficiency and our technical capabilities in developing hydrocarbon resources, we have an impressive record of success in various regions of the world. We have core operations onshore in the U.S. (primarily in the DJ Basin and the Marcellus Shale), in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, offshore Eastern Mediterranean and offshore West Africa.
With a highly transparent path forward for delivering a decade of double-digit growth, Noble Energy has an outstanding record among U.S. based energy independents. Our broad asset base includes both development and exploratory resource opportunities, with an extensive number of crude oil and natural gas projects in the U.S. and internationally. Our well-balanced portfolio and strong financial platform provide the flexibility to prosper across economic and commodity price cycles.
