EOG Resources, Inc. (NYSE: EOG) (EOG) today reported second quarter 2011 net income of $295.6 million, or $1.10 per share. This compares to second quarter 2010 net income of $59.9 million, or $0.24 per share.

Consistent with some analysts’ practice of matching cash flow realizations to settlement months, and making certain other adjustments in order to exclude one-time items, adjusted non-GAAP net income for the second quarter 2011 was $299.2 million, or $1.11 per share. Adjusted non-GAAP net income for the second quarter 2010 was $44.9 million, or $0.18 per share. The results for the second quarter 2011 included a $226.2 million, net of tax ($0.84 per share) impairment of certain non-core North American natural gas assets, gains on property dispositions, net of tax, of $105.2 million ($0.39 per share) and a previously disclosed non-cash net gain of $189.6 million ($121.4 million after tax, or $0.45 per share) on the mark-to-market of financial commodity contracts. During the quarter, the net cash inflow related to financial commodity contracts was $6.3 million ($4.0 million after tax, or $0.01 per share). (Please refer to the attached tables for the reconciliation of adjusted non-GAAP net income to GAAP net income.)

Operational Highlights

Total company production increased 13 percent in the first half of 2011 compared to the same period in 2010. Driven by a 60 percent rise in United States crude oil and condensate production during the second quarter, EOG delivered 46 percent total company crude oil, condensate and natural gas liquids production growth versus the second quarter 2010. Leading the crude oil production growth was the South Texas Eagle Ford followed by the Fort Worth Barnett Shale Combo. Also contributing to the increase were newer crude oil and liquids-rich plays such as the Colorado Niobrara, Oklahoma Marmaton, West Texas Wolfcamp and New Mexico Leonard.

“Demonstrating the depth and quality of our portfolio, EOG’s crude oil and liquids-rich plays delivered strong, consistent second quarter production results, driving our overall first half 2011 production growth,” said Mark G. Papa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Just as we had forecast, EOG’s natural gas production is decreasing due to asset sales and the priority we have placed on developing our outstanding crude oil and liquids investment opportunities.”

EOG is on track to achieve its targeted 9.5 percent total company organic production growth for 2011. Total company 2011 crude oil and condensate production is projected to increase by 52 percent, while total company crude oil, condensate and natural gas liquids production is forecast to rise 47 percent over 2010.

Crude Oil and Liquids Activity

Early in its transition to a liquids-focused company, EOG identified the rich oil potential of the South Texas Eagle Ford Shale and amassed a large acreage position in the sweet spot of the crude oil window.

“We are finding that well results across our 535,000 net acre position in the Eagle Ford oil window are remarkably similar. The wealth of drilling, completion and production data at our fingertips is reflected in the steadily rising momentum of our operations and success in achieving more predictable results,” Papa said.

As EOG further defines geologic sub-trends and refines completion techniques, the majority of its Eagle Ford wells are being completed to sales at initial production rates in excess of 1,000 barrels of crude oil per day (Bopd). Leveraging this consistency, EOG ramped up its drilling activity from 10 rigs at the beginning of 2011 to its current intensive program of 22 rigs.

In Gonzales County where EOG is actively drilling, the King Fehner Unit #2H, #4H, #5H and #6H wells began initial production at maximum rates ranging from 1,238 to 1,487 Bopd with 1.2 to 1.6 million cubic feet per day (MMcfd) of rich natural gas.

“These are the first Eagle Ford wells that EOG has tested with a tighter spacing pattern. If downspacing proves economically viable, we have the potential to significantly increase our reserves in the Eagle Ford,” Papa said.

EOG reported production rates from other successful wells in Gonzales County. The Merritt #4H had a peak initial production rate of 1,361 Bopd with 0.6 MMcfd of rich natural gas. The Steen Unit #1H, #2H, #4H and #6H came online with production rates ranging from 663 to 1,269 Bopd with 0.7 to 1.4 MMcfd of rich natural gas. In its far northeastern acreage where EOG announced success from a fault block earlier this year, the Hill Unit #1H and #3H were completed. They flowed to sales at peak rates of 1,461 and 1,734 Bopd with 1.0 and 1.3 MMcfd of rich natural gas, respectively.

In LaSalle County, the Naylor Jones A #2H, 99 #1H and 96 #1H provided additional confirmation of the consistent quality of EOG’s 120-mile acreage trend. The wells, located in the southwestern part of EOG’s block, had strong production rates ranging from 997 to 1,153 Bopd with 1.0 to 2.3 MMcfd of rich natural gas. In Karnes County, the heart of EOG’s extensive acreage, the Max Unit #1H had a peak initial production rate of 1,591 Bopd with 1.5 MMcfd of rich natural gas. Also in Karnes County, the Braune Unit #1H was turned to sales at an initial rate of 1,611 Bopd with 1.0 MMcfd of rich natural gas. EOG has 100 percent working interest in all 16 of these Eagle Ford wells.

“With the 77 percent crude oil mix of our Eagle Ford acreage position, this large, highly rated resource play has become a significant contributor to fueling EOG’s transition to an oil company in a short period of time,” Papa said.

EOG announced positive drilling results from a new horizontal crude oil play, the Marmaton sandstone in the Oklahoma Panhandle. In Ellis County where EOG has drilled a series of wells, the Brown 18 #1VH and Opal 31 #1H were completed to sales at production rates of 620 and 1,312 Bopd with 0.7 and 2.6 MMcfd of natural gas, respectively. EOG has 58 and 49 percent working interest in the wells, respectively. EOG has 88 percent working interest in the Fischer 12 #1VH, which began initial production at 508 Bopd, with strong natural gas production. Encouraging well results provide the potential for additional development drilling locations on its 34,000 net acre position. To identify further exploration opportunities, EOG plans to acquire 3D seismic over this acreage.

EOG continues to post excellent drilling results from its 131,400 net acre position in the West Texas Wolfcamp and its 108,000 net acre position in the New Mexico Leonard Shale and Bone Spring Sands plays. The current moderate level of drilling activity is expected to ramp up in 2012 and beyond. Following refinements in completion techniques, recent well results show improvement in crude oil production flow rates.

Drilled and completed in the West Texas Wolfcamp, the University 40-A #0401H began flowing to sales at a maximum oil rate of 935 Bopd with 838 thousand cubic feet per day (Mcfd) of rich natural gas. EOG has 85 percent working interest in this Irion County well. Also in Irion County, the Linthicum M #1H and I #5H had production rates of 809 and 664 Bopd with 892 and 1,178 Mcfd of rich natural gas, respectively. EOG has 75 and 85 percent working interest in the wells, respectively. EOG has 100 percent working interest in the University 9 #2802H, drilled in Reagan County, northwest of its Irion County and Crockett County activity. The well had a peak production rate of 583 Bopd with 254 Mcfd of rich natural gas.

In Lea County, New Mexico where EOG is developing its Leonard Shale acreage, the Caballo 23 #1H was completed at a production rate of 665 Bopd with 1.2 MMcfd of rich natural gas. EOG has 86 percent working interest in the well. In Eddy County, the Elk Wallow 11 St. #4 had a maximum production rate of 735 Bopd with 2.0 MMcfd of rich natural gas. EOG has 75 percent working interest in this Leonard Shale well. Also in Eddy County, EOG drilled the Parkway 23 State #3H in the Bone Spring Sands, which is producing 511 Bopd with 726 Mcfd of natural gas. EOG holds 81 percent working interest in the well.

Since mid-2009, EOG’s Denver-Julesburg Basin drilling activity has been concentrated on its 80,000 net acre Hereford Ranch Field in Weld County, Colorado. The Jake 2-01H discovery, which was drilled as a horizontal well targeting the Niobrara formation, began initial production in late 2009 at a first month average rate of 645 Bopd. Since the first quarter 2011, it has been producing at a relatively stable rate of 250 to 300 Bopd. Following the Jake well, the Elmer 8-31H, which was drilled in March 2010 with a short lateral, had an initial average 30-day production rate of 283 Bopd and is currently producing approximately 225 Bopd. Encouraging data from long-term stabilized crude oil production rates indicate that the Niobrara wells will be characterized by lower initial flow rates, but flatter decline curves than other crude oil resource plays.

Acreage outside EOG’s Hereford Ranch Field was also proven productive during the quarter. Southeast of the Hereford Ranch Field, the Fiscus Mesa 9-10H was drilled and completed to sales at an initial controlled rate of 335 Bopd with 174 Mcfd of natural gas. EOG has 86 percent working interest in the well. West of the Fiscus Mesa well, EOG has 75 percent working interest in the Gravel Draw 9-09H that began production at an initial controlled rate of 277 Bopd with 146 Mcfd of natural gas. Based on long-term well production results from its Hereford Ranch Field and new drilling results and production data, EOG has established the economic potential for crude oil development on 169,000 of its 220,000 net acre Niobrara position.

In the Texas Fort Worth Barnett Combo, EOG’s program in Montague County and western Cooke County continues to deliver successful production results with efficiency gains in both drilling and completion operations. In western Cooke County, the Gaedke A Unit #3H and #4H and B Unit #5H, #6H and #7H wells were brought to sales at rates ranging from 338 to 696 Bopd with 807 to 2,152 Mcfd of rich natural gas. EOG has 99 percent working interest in the wells. In Montague County, EOG has 100 percent working interest in the Stoddard A Unit #1H, B Unit #2H, C Unit #3H and D Unit #4H that came online at rates ranging from 777 to 918 Bopd with 1,262 to 2,677 Mcfd of rich natural gas. While EOG’s efforts have focused on testing new completion techniques in the sweet spot of its core acreage, an inventory of several years of drilling locations has been identified in the play.

Despite weather challenges in the North Dakota Williston Basin over the last eight to nine months, EOG continued its drilling and production activities, as well as operating its proprietary crude-by-rail transportation system. Although EOG minimized the adverse impact of abnormally wet weather on production goals during the second quarter, completion operations were impacted and area flooding remains an issue.

Drilled with a 9,968 foot long-reach lateral, the Liberty LR #21-36H was completed to sales at a maximum rate of 1,201 Bopd with 1,147 Mcfd of natural gas. EOG has 95 percent working interest in the well. The Fertile #19-29H and #45-29H were both completed in the Bakken formation in Mountrail County. The wells, in which EOG has 38 and 75 percent working interest, respectively, came online at maximum rates of 1,008 and 1,223 Bopd, respectively. In Williams County, EOG has 67 percent working interest in the Hardscrabble 13-3526H, which began flowing to sales at 1,474 Bopd. EOG holds 85 percent working interest in the Clarks Creek 3-0805H, which was completed in the Three Forks formation in McKenzie County at a maximum production rate of 1,384 Bopd.

“EOG’s early innovative crude-by-rail midstream investments in the Bakken and Eagle Ford have proven valuable in delivering our crude oil directly to major market hubs given the current lack of available pipeline capacity in these two prolific plays,” Papa said. “Our Bakken crude oil rail transportation system was particularly beneficial during the recent North Dakota flooding because it enabled EOG to continue to make crude oil deliveries.”

Natural Gas Activity

In North America, EOG’s natural gas production decreased 1.6 percent in the second quarter compared to the same prior year period due to reduced drilling activity and natural gas asset sales. In the United States where EOG is employing drilling capital to maintain core leasehold positions, it posted strong operational results from its Marcellus Shale and Haynesville/Bossier Shale natural gas horizontal resource plays. In Canada, EOG’s natural gas production decreased due to asset divestitures and the reallocation of capital toward liquids-rich reinvestment opportunities.

Capital Structure

During the second quarter, total cash proceeds from sales of acreage, producing natural gas properties and midstream assets were approximately $684 million. Through the first half of 2011, total cash proceeds from assets sales were $944 million. Based on negotiated purchase and sale agreements and other pending transactions, EOG anticipates property sales for the full year of approximately $1.6 billion, or $600 million higher than the original $1 billion target for 2011. Estimated exploration and production expenditures will range from $6.8 billion to $7.0 billion, including exploration, development and production facilities and midstream expenditures, an increase of approximately $400 million from EOG’s previously stated targets.

At June 30, 2011, EOG’s total debt outstanding was $5.2 billion for a debt-to-total capitalization ratio of 30 percent. Taking into account $1.6 billion of cash on the balance sheet at the end of the quarter, EOG’s net debt was $3.6 billion for a net debt-to-total capitalization ratio of 23 percent. EOG is targeting a net debt-to-total capitalization ratio of 30 percent or less at both year-end 2011 and 2012. (Please refer to the attached tables for the reconciliation of net debt (non-GAAP) to current and long-term debt (GAAP) and the reconciliation of net debt-to-total capitalization ratio (non-GAAP) to debt-to-total capitalization ratio (GAAP).)

“Our well-timed efforts to recreate EOG as a high margin, crude oil-focused company are paying off,” Papa said. “On the basis of both per share earnings and cash flow growth, EOG is positioned to be an industry leader for years to come.”

QUANTITATIVE RECONCILIATION OF ADJUSTED NET INCOME (NON-GAAP)

TO NET INCOME (GAAP)

(Unaudited; in thousands, except per share data)

The following chart adjusts three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 reported Net Income (GAAP) to reflect actual net cash realized from

financial commodity price transactions by eliminating the unrealized mark-to-market gains from these transactions, to add back impairment charges related to certain of

EOG's non-core North American natural gas assets in the first and second quarters of 2011, to eliminate the gains on asset dispositions primarily in North America in the

first and second quarters of 2011, and to eliminate the change in the estimated fair value of a contingent consideration liability related to EOG's previously disclosed

acquisition of Haynesville and Bossier Shale unproved acreage in the first and second quarters of 2010.  EOG believes this presentation may be useful to investors who

follow the practice of some industry analysts who adjust reported company earnings to match realizations to production settlement months and make certain other

adjustments to exclude one-time items.  EOG management uses this information for comparative purposes within the industry.
