Since being founded by Lloyd Noble in 1932, Noble Energy has succeeded where others would not venture – applying global experience to safely and responsibly create new opportunities. The company has proven its ability to move from discovery to efficient execution of large-scale development projects and have a number of additional major projects under development. Today, Noble Energy is a global independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company with total proved reserves of 1.7 billion barrels of oil equivalent at year-end 2014 (pro forma for the acquisition of Rosetta Resources). The company’s diverse resource base includes positions in four premier unconventional U.S. onshore plays – the DJ Basin, Marcellus Shale, Eagle Ford Shale and Permian Basin – and offshore in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, Eastern Mediterranean and West Africa. Driven by its unique purpose – Energizing the World, Bettering People’s Lives—Noble Energy believes in safely and responsibly providing energy to the world through oil and natural gas exploration and production, while positively influencing the lives of our stakeholders.
