Marketing and Customers The company markets the majority of the oil production from its operated properties. Its natural gas and related NGLs are generally marketed by third parties under percentage of proceeds contracts. The company sells its production to various purchasers under contracts with daily, monthly, seasonal, annual or multi-year terms. Purchasers include pipelines, processors, refineries, marketing companies and end users. The company sells production to a relatively small number of customers, as is customary in the development and production business. Environmental Matters and Regulation The company’s exploration and production activities, as well as proposed exploration and development plans, on federal lands require governmental permits that trigger the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act. The company is in compliance with the requirements of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act and related state and local laws and regulations, and that it has held, and continue to hold, all necessary and up-to-date approvals, permits, registrations and other authorizations to the extent that the company’s operations require them under such laws and regulations. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission also regulates interstate natural gas transportation rates and service conditions, which affects the marketing of natural gas that the company produces, as well as the revenues that it receives for sales of its natural gas.
