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

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.

Marathon Oil Announces 2017 Capital Program; Accelerating Activity and Raising Long-term Growth Rates for U.S. Resource Plays

HOUSTON, Feb. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE: MRO) announced today a 2017 capital program of $2.2 billion with over 90 percent allocated to its high return U.S. resource plays.

2017 Capital Program Highlights:
Accelerating activity and production growth in Oklahoma and the BakkenReturning to sequential growth in U.S. resource plays in 2Q201715 – 20% U.S. resource play growth (oil & boe) from 4Q2016 to 4Q2017Significant cash flow generation expected from Eagle Ford and E.G.
2017 to 2021 production CAGRs at flat $55 WTI (oil & boe):
Announcing 10 - 12% total Company CAGR, excluding LibyaIncreasing resource play CAGR to 18 - 22%Expect to achieve growth rates within cash flows, inclusive of dividends
“We enter 2017 with greater focus and concentration on our excellent opportunities in the U.S. resource plays, and are well positioned to generate high return production growth for our shareholders," Marathon Oil President and CEO Lee Tillman said. “This year’s $2.2 billion capital program underscores our strategic shift as we allocate over 90 percent to the U.S. resource plays. We’re ramping up activity in Oklahoma as we progress our STACK and SCOOP acreage toward full-field development, and in the Bakken where our enhanced completions recently achieved record results in the basin. Additionally, our Eagle Ford asset will contribute significant free cash flow while continuing to drive operational efficiencies.” North America E&P

Marathon Oil will allocate $2 billion to the U.S. resource plays, which will be split about one-third to each of the three basins with Oklahoma’s strategic objectives occupying the Company’s first call on capital. For the Oklahoma Resource Basins, the Company will focus on STACK leasehold retention, STACK delineation and infill pilots in preparation for 2018 full field development. The Company plans to increase its Oklahoma rig count to average approximately 10 rigs, while bringing 90 to 100 gross Company-operated wells to sales. This includes four to five STACK infill pilots and two SCOOP infill pilots to sales, as well as testing additional secondary horizons. In the Eagle Ford, the Company expects to maintain a six-rig drilling program and bring 155 to 170 gross Company-operated wells to sales. With about two-thirds of the program focused in the high margin oil window, Marathon Oil expects this asset to generate significant free cash flow in 2017. The Company plans to continue optimizing completion techniques with increased proppant and fluid loading, and average lateral lengths. In the Bakken, Marathon Oil plans to focus on its highest return West and East Myrmidon areas where it completed several basin-leading wells in 2016. The Company will progress multiple enhanced completion trials as well as continuing its focus on optimizing base production, while bringing 70 to 75 gross Company-operated wells to sales. Marathon Oil expects to average approximately six drilling rigs in the Bakken in 2017. International E&P, OSM and other

Less than 10 percent of the Company’s capital program will be allocated to its International E&P business, Oil Sands Mining (OSM), corporate and other. Following last year’s completion of the Alba B3 compression project in Equatorial Guinea, that asset is expected to be a significant free cash flow generator in 2017. Production Guidance

For full year 2017, the Company forecasts production available for sale from the combined North America and International E&P segments, excluding Libya, to average 335,000 to 355,000 net boed, about 5 percent higher than 2016 at the midpoint on a divestiture-adjusted basis. U.S. resource plays are expected to return to sequential growth in second quarter, and exit 2017 with oil and BOE production 15 to 20 percent higher than fourth quarter 2016, providing significant operational momentum into 2018. The Company forecasts 40,000 to 50,000 net barrels per day (bbld) of synthetic crude oil for the OSM segment, in-line with 2016. First quarter 2017 volumes have been impacted by severe winter weather in North America, as well as scheduled and unscheduled downtime internationally. For first quarter 2017, North America E&P production guidance is expected to average 195,000 to 205,000 net boed and International E&P is expected to average 120,000 to 125,000 net boed, excluding Libya. OSM synthetic crude oil production is expected to range from 45,0000 to 50,000 net bbld in the first quarter 2017. Accompanying slides pertaining to Marathon Oil’s 2017 capital program will be available on the Company’s website as soon as practicable following this release today, Feb. 15. The Company will hold a conference call, which will be webcast live, on Thursday, Feb. 16 at 10 a.m. ET.  To listen to the live webcast, visit the Marathon Oil website at http://www.marathonoil.com. The audio replay of the webcast will be posted by Feb. 17. ### Definitions:
