Noble Energy corporate report

Noble Energy corporate report

Report summary

Noble Energy is well positioned for strong growth over the next five years, despite the current downbeat price environment. We expect production to grow by 8% per year on average between 2016 and 2021, driven by tight oil and international deepwater developments. Noble holds one of the most diverse portfolios out of its peer group. Few upstream players have comparable exposure to such high-quality positions in unconventionals, deepwater and exploration.
