Item 7.01    Regulation FD Disclosure.

I.    Price Matters Update

Based on the tax position of EOG, EOG's price sensitivity (exclusive of basis swaps) as of July 19, 2021, for each $1.00 per barrel increase or decrease in wellhead crude oil and condensate price, combined with the estimated change in NGL price, is approximately $100 million for net income and $128 million for pretax cash flows from operating activities, in each case for the full-year 2021.

Based on EOG's tax position and the portion of EOG's anticipated natural gas volumes for which prices have not (as of July 19, 2021) been determined under long-term marketing contracts, EOG's price sensitivity (exclusive of basis swaps) as of July 19, 2021, for each $0.10 per thousand cubic feet increase or decrease in wellhead natural gas price, is approximately $31 million for net income and $40 million for pretax cash flows from operating activities, in each case for the full-year 2021.

II.    Price Risk Management

With the objective of enhancing the certainty of future revenues, from time to time EOG enters into financial price swap, option, swaption, collar and basis swap contracts. EOG accounts for financial commodity derivative contracts using the mark-to-market accounting method.

For the second quarter of 2021, EOG anticipates a net loss of $427 million on the mark-to-market of its financial commodity derivative contracts. During the second quarter of 2021, the net cash paid for settlements of financial commodity derivative contracts was $193 million.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2021, NYMEX WTI crude oil averaged $66.06 per Bbl, and NYMEX natural gas at Henry Hub averaged $2.83 per MMBtu. EOG's actual realizations for crude oil and natural gas for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, differ from these NYMEX prices due to delivery location (basis), quality and appropriate revenue adjustments. Market prices for NGLs are influenced by the components extracted, including ethane, propane, butane and natural gasoline, among others, and the respective market pricing for each component.

III.    Commodity Derivative Transactions

Presented below is a comprehensive summary of EOG's financial commodity derivative contracts as of July 19, 2021. For a summary of EOG's financial commodity derivative contracts as of April 29, 2021, see Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations of EOG's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2021, filed on May 6, 2021 (Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q). Since filing its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, EOG has entered into additional commodity derivative contracts.

IV.    Forward Looking Statements

Information Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

    This document includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, including, among others, statements and projections regarding EOG's future financial position, operations, performance, business strategy, goals, returns and rates of return, budgets, reserves, levels of production, capital expenditures, costs and asset sales, statements regarding future commodity prices and statements regarding the plans and objectives of EOG's management for future operations, are forward-looking statements. EOG typically uses words such as "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," "project," "strategy," "intend," "plan," "target," “aims,” "goal," "may," "will," "focused on," "should" and "believe" or the negative of those terms or other variations or comparable terminology to identify its forward-looking statements. In particular, statements, express or implied, concerning EOG's future operating results and returns or EOG's ability to replace or increase reserves, increase production, generate returns and rates of return, replace or increase drilling locations, reduce or otherwise control operating costs and capital expenditures, generate cash flows, pay down or refinance indebtedness, or pay and/or increase dividends are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of performance. Although EOG believes the expectations reflected in its forward-looking statements are reasonable and are based on reasonable assumptions, no assurance can be given that these assumptions are accurate or that any of these expectations will be achieved (in full or at all) or will prove to have been correct. Moreover, EOG's forward-looking statements may be affected by known, unknown or currently unforeseen risks, events or circumstances that may be outside EOG's control. Important factors that could cause EOG's actual results to differ materially from the expectations reflected in EOG's forward-looking statements include, among others:

the timing, extent and duration of changes in prices for, supplies of, and demand for, crude oil and condensate, natural gas liquids, natural gas and related commodities;
the extent to which EOG is successful in its efforts to acquire or discover additional reserves;
the extent to which EOG is successful in its efforts to (i) economically develop its acreage in, (ii) produce reserves and achieve anticipated production levels and rates of return from, (iii) decrease or otherwise control its drilling, completion, operating and capital costs related to, and (iv) maximize reserve recovery from, its existing and future crude oil and natural gas exploration and development projects and associated potential and existing drilling locations;
the extent to which EOG is successful in its efforts to market its production of crude oil and condensate, natural gas liquids and natural gas;

the availability, proximity and capacity of, and costs associated with, appropriate gathering, processing, compression, storage, transportation, refining, and export facilities;
the availability, cost, terms and timing of issuance or execution of, and competition for, mineral licenses and leases and governmental and other permits and rights-of-way, and EOG’s ability to retain mineral licenses and leases;
the impact of, and changes in, government policies, laws and regulations, including any changes or other actions which may result from the recent U.S. elections and change in U.S. administration and including tax laws and regulations; climate change and other environmental, health and safety laws and regulations relating to air emissions, disposal of produced water, drilling fluids and other wastes, hydraulic fracturing and access to and use of water; laws and regulations affecting the leasing of acreage and permitting for oil and gas drilling and the calculation of royalty payments in respect of oil and gas production; laws and regulations imposing additional permitting and disclosure requirements, additional operating restrictions and conditions or restrictions on drilling and completion operations and on the transportation of crude oil and natural gas; laws and regulations with respect to derivatives and hedging activities; and laws and regulations with respect to the import and export of crude oil, natural gas and related commodities;
EOG's ability to effectively integrate acquired crude oil and natural gas properties into its operations, fully identify existing and potential problems with respect to such properties and accurately estimate reserves, production and drilling, completing and operating costs with respect to such properties;
the extent to which EOG's third-party-operated crude oil and natural gas properties are operated successfully and economically;
competition in the oil and gas exploration and production industry for the acquisition of licenses, leases and properties, employees and other personnel, facilities, equipment, materials and services;
the availability and cost of employees and other personnel, facilities, equipment, materials (such as water and tubulars) and services;
the accuracy of reserve estimates, which by their nature involve the exercise of professional judgment and may therefore be imprecise;
4


weather, including its impact on crude oil and natural gas demand, and weather-related delays in drilling and in the installation and operation (by EOG or third parties) of production, gathering, processing, refining, compression, storage, transportation, and export facilities;
the ability of EOG's customers and other contractual counterparties to satisfy their obligations to EOG and, related thereto, to access the credit and capital markets to obtain financing needed to satisfy their obligations to EOG;
EOG's ability to access the commercial paper market and other credit and capital markets to obtain financing on terms it deems acceptable, if at all, and to otherwise satisfy its capital expenditure requirements;
the extent to which EOG is successful in its completion of planned asset dispositions;
the extent and effect of any hedging activities engaged in by EOG;
the timing and extent of changes in foreign currency exchange rates, interest rates, inflation rates, global and domestic financial market conditions and global and domestic general economic conditions;
the duration and economic and financial impact of epidemics, pandemics or other public health issues, including the COVID-19 pandemic;
geopolitical factors and political conditions and developments around the world (such as the imposition of tariffs or trade or other economic sanctions, political instability and armed conflict), including in the areas in which EOG operates;
the use of competing energy sources and the development of alternative energy sources;
the extent to which EOG incurs uninsured losses and liabilities or losses and liabilities in excess of its insurance coverage;
acts of war and terrorism and responses to these acts; and
the other factors described under ITEM 1A, Risk Factors of EOG's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, and any updates to those factors set forth in EOG's subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q or Current Reports on Form 8-K.

    In light of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions, the events anticipated by EOG's forward-looking statements may not occur, and, if any of such events do, we may not have anticipated the timing of their occurrence or the duration or extent of their impact on our actual results. Accordingly, you should not place any undue reliance on any of EOG's forward-looking statements. EOG's forward-looking statements speak only as of the date made, and EOG undertakes no obligation, other than as required by applicable law, to update or revise its forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, subsequent events, anticipated or unanticipated circumstances or otherwise.
