The combined deals provide us more than 90,000 acres in the Permian, over 70,000 of which is concentrated in the Northern Delaware," Marathon Oil President and CEO Lee Tillman said. “While we expect to pursue additional trades and grassroots leasing, this bolt-on achieves the scale necessary for efficient long-term development in the basin.” Black Mountain Acreage Highlights: Up to 10 target benches within approximately 5,000 feet of stacked pay; base case assumes up to 6 target benches Approximately 21,000 net acres with 20,000 net acres in the Northern Delaware basin; primary targets in world-class Wolfcamp and Bone Spring; roughly 400 boed of current production Approximately 230 million BOE of risked resource with 440 gross Company operated locations Approximately 550 million BOE of total resource potential with 950 total gross Company operated locations High quality Northern Delaware inventory produces greater than 90% before-tax IRRs at $55 WTI flat and competes for capital allocation at top of Marathon Oil’s portfolio Combined Permian Acreage Highlights: Approximately 91,000 net Permian acres including 71,500 in the Northern Delaware Implied total acreage cost of $18,400 per acre, or $23,400 per Northern Delaware acre, adjusting for existing production Approximately 580 million BOE of risked resource with 1,070 gross Company operated locations Approximately 1.45 billion BOE of total resource potential with 2,650 total gross Company operated locations from both tighter density and secondary targets Further upside opportunities from 18,500 net acres in Northwest Shelf One operated rig drilling with plans to add two more rigs mid-year The Black Mountain acquisition is expected to close in second quarter 2017 with an effective date of March 1, 2017.

Marathon Oil Announces $2.5 Billion Canadian Oil Sands Divestiture and $1.1 Billion Permian Basin Acquisition

Houston, March 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marathon Oil Corporation (: MRO) announced today it has signed an agreement to sell its Canadian subsidiary, which includes the Company’s 20 percent non-operated interest in the Athabasca Oil Sands Project (AOSP), to Shell and Canadian Natural Resources Limited for $2.5 billion in cash, excluding closing adjustments. Marathon Oil also announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire approximately 70,000 net surface acres in the Permian basin from BC Operating, Inc. and other entities for $1.1 billion in cash, excluding closing adjustments. The acquisition includes 51,500 acres in the Northern Delaware basin of New Mexico, and current production of approximately 5,000 net barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed). “Divesting of our Oil Sands Mining business at an attractive value while also acquiring 70,000 net acres in the world-class Permian basin are transformative milestones that will further align our portfolio with our strategy," Marathon Oil President and CEO Lee Tillman said. “Historically, our interest in the Canadian oil sands has represented about a third of our Company’s other operating and production expenses, yet only about 12 percent of our production volumes. The Northern Delaware basin features outstanding well economics that compete at the top of our organic portfolio and is experiencing a positive rate of change in well performance unrivaled in U.S. unconventional basins. This deal expands the quality and depth of our already robust inventory while securing a foundational footprint in the Delaware basin with 5,000 feet of oil-rich stacked pay. Today’s announcements give us even greater focus and concentration on our diverse set of high-return opportunities in the U.S. resource plays, and strongly position us to generate long-term value for our shareholders for many years to come.”   Divestiture of Canadian Oil Sands Business Under the terms of the Canadian divestiture, $1.75 billion will be paid to Marathon Oil upon closing and the remaining proceeds will be paid in first quarter 2018. The sale is expected to close in mid-2017 with an effective date of Jan. 1, 2017, and concurrent with a related transaction between Shell and Canadian Natural Resources, also announced today. Proceeds will be used to fund resource capture, organic investment, to reduce gross debt and for general corporate purposes. Divestiture Highlights: Further simplifies and concentrates Marathon Oil’s portfolio to the lower cost, higher margin U.S. resource plays Anticipating approx. 25% reduction in 2017 Company expenses (production and other operating) based on expected closing dates for both transactions $2.5 billion sale price equates to approximately 15 times 2016 OSM operating cash flow Avoids material future capital requirements in a non-operated business Net synthetic crude oil production averaged 48,000 barrels per day in 2016 Year-end 2016 proved reserves from Canada totaled 692 million barrels of synthetic crude oil   Permian Basin Acquisition Highlights: Up to 10 target benches within approximately 5,000 feet of stacked pay; base case assumes up to 6 target benches 70,000 total net acres with 51,500 net acres in the Northern Delaware basin Total implied acreage cost of approximately $13,900 per acre, adjusting for existing production High quality Northern Delaware inventory produces greater than 90% before-tax IRRs at $55 WTI flat and competes for capital allocation at top of Marathon Oil’s portfolio Primary targets in world-class Wolfcamp and Bone Spring Approximately 350 million BOE of risked resource at a cost of about $2.80 per BOE with 630 gross Company operated locations Approximately 900 million BOE of total resource potential with 1,700 total upside locations from both tighter density and secondary targets Further growth opportunities from acquired acreage in Northwest Shelf as well as further bolt-on acquisitions One operated rig drilling with plans to add a second rig mid-year; one rig required to hold term lease   The BC acquisition is expected to close in second quarter 2017 with an effective date of Jan. 1, 2017. Goldman, Sachs & Co. and TD Securities served as advisors on the divestiture transaction, and Evercore served as advisor on the acquisition transaction.  Marathon Oil will conduct a question and answer webcast / call Thursday, March 9, at 9:00 a.m. ET to discuss the acquisition.
