Oasis Petroleum Inc. Declares Special Dividend of $15.00 per Share in connection with its Merger with Whiting

Oasis Petroleum Inc. Declares Special Dividend of $15.00 per Share in connection with its Merger with Whiting HOUSTON, June 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Oasis Petroleum Inc. (NASDAQ: OAS) ("Oasis") announced today that its Board of Directors has, subject to certain conditions, declared a special dividend of $15.00 per share of Oasis common stock. The special dividend is being declared in connection with, and its payment is subject to, the closing of Oasis' previously announced merger (the "Merger") with Whiting Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: WLL) ("Whiting"). The special dividend would be payable following the closing of the Merger to Oasis' stockholders of record as of the close of business on the first business day following the date on which both Oasis' shareholders and Whiting's shareholders have approved the Merger and related matters. The special meetings of Oasis' shareholders and Whiting's shareholders to consider and vote upon the Merger and related matters are each scheduled for June 28, 2022. If requisite shareholder approvals are obtained on June 28, 2022 and all other closing conditions are timely satisfied, the Merger is expected to close on July 1, 2022 and the special dividend would be payable on July 8, 2022. The payment of the special dividend is conditioned on the closing of the Merger, which remains subject to the approval of both Oasis' and Whiting's shareholders and other customary closing conditions. There can be no assurance that all such closing conditions will be satisfied by July 1, 2022, that the closing of the Merger will occur on July 1, 2022 or that the Merger or related transactions will occur at all. For the avoidance of doubt, the record date will be prior to closing of the Merger and therefore Whiting shareholders will not be entitled to payment of the special dividend in respect of the shares of Oasis common stock received as consideration for the Merger. Forward-Looking StatementsCertain statements made herein are not historical facts but are forward-looking statements for purposes of the safe harbor provided by Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

CNX Submits Comment Letter to SEC on Proposed Climate Rules

CNX Submits Comment Letter to SEC on Proposed Climate Rules Requests Standardization Apply Equally to All to Avoid Misinforming Investors and to Improve Accuracy and Transparency PITTSBURGH, June 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- In a letter to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), CNX Resources Corporation (NYSE: CNX) offers insights to the agency on behalf of the company's stakeholders. As a leader in corporate responsibility - focused on delivering tangible, impactful, and local benefits to the company's stakeholders - CNX comments on the proposed rule's practical application as it relates to accurate, transparent, and consistent measures as well as potential unintended consequences that could negatively impact confidence in the capital markets. The company's written response reflects the following three themes to ensure the proposal is consistent with the Commission's mission in providing standardized, transparent disclosures to investors: "First, the proposed climate rules create inconsistent and highly subjective standards for reporting Scopes 1, 2, and 3 carbon dioxide emissions across different industries and companies. This in turn may create confusion and misinformation when investors assume the emissions data reported by each registrant were developed from the same methodology, scope, and assumptions. Although CNX fully supports the SEC's important mission and places the highest priority on regulatory compliance, the draft rule represents a departure from the Commission's goal of promoting fair, transparent, and well-understood accounting principles that ensure comparable and decision-useful outcomes," said Alan Shepard, CNX Chief Financial Officer. CNX Chief Excellence Office Yemi Akinkugbe commented, "Second, the proposed climate rules are attempting to morph an ambiguous voluntary reporting framework into an involuntary compliance framework without first addressing the necessary standardization to ensure a consistent, accurate, and transparent level playing field across public companies and the capital markets. Capital could end up being mis-allocated as a result. Although CNX recently established a Regulatory Reporting Group and has committed to reporting emissions data on a quarterly basis, not everyone is as far along in this process. Appropriate standardization of climate-related disclosures should be in place to ensure capital allocation decisions are made with accurate, transparent, and consistent data when it comes to cumulative lifecycle emissions." "Third and last, getting this issue right requires rules that are accurate, transparent, and consistent across industries and companies. The CNX New Technologies effort is focused on how best to utilize existing company assets and proprietary technology to drive results in methane abatement and other similar carbon capture opportunities. The domestic natural gas industry, the Appalachian basin, and CNX in particular, are strategically positioned to provide solutions and economically benefit in a lower carbon macro environment if these proposed rules are applied uniformly," concluded CNX President of New Technologies Ravi Srivastava. To view the Company's full comment letter, please click here. About CNX Resources CNX Resources Corporation (NYSE: CNX) is unique. We are a premier natural gas development, production, midstream, and technology company centered in Appalachia, one of the most energy abundant regions in the world. With the benefit of a 158-year regional legacy, substantial asset base, leading core operational competencies, technology development and innovation, and astute capital allocation methodologies, we responsibly develop our resources and deploy free cash flow to create long-term per share value for our shareholders, employees, and the communities where we operate.

ExxonMobil statement regarding President Biden Letter to Oil Industry

ExxonMobil statement regarding President Biden Letter to Oil Industry IRVING, Texas, Jun. 15 /BusinessWire/ -- ExxonMobil today released the following statement in response to a letter from President Biden. We have been in regular contact with the administration to update the President and his staff on how ExxonMobil has been investing more than any other company to develop U.S. oil and gas supplies. This includes investments in the U.S. of more than $50 billion over the past five years, resulting in an almost 50% increase in our U.S. production of oil during this period. Globally, we've invested double what we've earned over the past five years -- $118 billion on new oil and gas supplies compared to net income of $55 billion. This is a reflection of the company's long-term growth strategy, and our commitment to continuously invest to meet society's demand for our products. Specific to refining capacity in the U.S., we've been investing through the downturn to increase refining capacity to process U.S. light crude by about 250,000 barrels per day - the equivalent of adding a new medium-sized refinery. We kept investing even during the pandemic, when we lost more than $20 billion and had to borrow more than $30 billion to maintain investment to increase capacity to be ready for post-pandemic demand. In the short term, the U.S. government could enact measures often used in emergencies following hurricanes or other supply disruptions -- such as waivers of Jones Act provisions and some fuel specifications to increase supplies. Longer term, government can promote investment through clear and consistent policy that supports U.S. resource development, such as regular and predictable lease sales, as well as streamlined regulatory approval and support for infrastructure such as pipelines. About ExxonMobil ExxonMobil, one of the largest publicly traded international energy and petrochemical companies, creates solutions that improve quality of life and meet society's evolving needs. The corporation's primary businesses - Upstream, Product Solutions and Low Carbon Solutions - provide products that enable modern life, including energy, chemicals, lubricants, and lower-emissions technologies. ExxonMobil holds an industry-leading portfolio of resources, and is one of the largest integrated fuels, lubricants and chemical companies in the world.

California Resources Corporation Announces Amendments to Consent Solicitation

California Resources Corporation Announces Amendments to Consent Solicitation LONG BEACH, Calif., Jun. 15 /BusinessWire/ -- California Resources Corporation (NYSE:CRC) ("CRC" or the "Company") today announced amendments to and extension of its solicitation of consents (the "Consent Solicitation") from the holders of its outstanding 7.125% Senior Notes due 2026 (CUSIP Nos. 13057QAH0, 13057QAJ6 and U1303AAE6) (the "Notes") to the proposed amendment to the indenture governing the Notes (the "Proposed Amendment") described in the Consent Solicitation Statement dated June 6, 2022, as amended by the Company's press release dated June 13, 2022 and as further amended by a Supplement dated June 15, 2022 (as amended, the "Statement"). The Consent Solicitation is being made in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions stated in the Statement. The expiration time for the Consent Solicitation is being further extended to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 17, 2022 (the "Expiration Time"), unless further extended or earlier terminated by the Company. The record date (the "Record Date") for determining holders of the Notes entitled to give consents and receive the Consent Fee (as described below) remains 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 3, 2022. The Company has increased the cash payment (the "Consent Fee") to be paid if the Company receives the consents required to approve the Proposed Amendment and the other conditions to the Consent Solicitation are satisfied or waived. The aggregate Consent Fee will be $9,000,000, to be shared by all consenting holders who validly deliver consents to the Proposed Amendment before the Expiration Time. Specifically, the Consent Fee will be an amount, per $1,000 principal amount of Notes for which a holder has validly delivered (on or prior to the Expiration Time) its consent, equal to the product of $15.00 multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the aggregate principal amount of Notes outstanding at the Record Date for the Consent Solicitation and the denominator of which is the aggregate principal amount of Notes for which the holders have validly delivered consents prior to the Expiration Time. As a result, the Consent Fee for the Notes will range from $15.00 per $1,000 (if all holders consent) to approximately $30.00 per $1,000 (if holders of only a majority of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes consent). Receipt of the Consent Fee by a consenting holder will result in a "significant modification" of such consenting holder's Notes for United States federal income tax purposes, resulting in a deemed exchange of such consenting holder's Notes. Such a deemed exchange will be a taxable event (unless a non-recognition provision were to apply). Holders should consult their own tax advisors regarding the tax consequences of the Consent Solicitation. The Supplement dated June 15, 2022 describes certain revisions to the Proposed Amendment and includes updated disclosure regarding tax consequences to the holders of the Notes in connection with the Consent Solicitation. Holders of the Notes are referred to the Statement for the detailed terms and conditions of the Consent Solicitation, all of which remain unchanged except as set forth in this release and the Supplement dated June 15, 2022. Holders of the Notes who have validly delivered their consents with respect to the Proposed Amendment do not need to deliver new consents or take any other action in response to this announcement in order to consent to the Proposed Amendment. Consents (whether previously or hereafter delivered) with respect to the Proposed Amendment may not be revoked once given, except in the limited circumstances described in the Statement. CRC reserves the right to modify the Statement and the terms and conditions of the Consent Solicitation or to terminate the Consent Solicitation at any time. MUFG Securities Americas Inc. and Citigroup Global Markets Inc. are the Joint Solicitation Agents. Global Bondholder Services Corporation has been retained to serve as the Information and Tabulation Agent for the Consent Solicitation. Persons with questions regarding the Consent Solicitation should contact MUFG Securities Americas Inc. at (toll free) (877) 744-4532 or (New York) (212) 405-7481 or Citigroup Global Markets Inc. at (toll free) (800) 558-3745 or (collect) (212) 723-6106. Requests for the Statement should be directed to Global Bondholder Services Corporation at (toll free) (855) 654-2015 or (collect) (212) 430-3774 or by email to contact@gbsc-usa.com. None of the Company, the Joint Solicitation Agents, the Information and Tabulation Agent, the trustee under the indenture governing the Notes or any of their respective affiliates is making any recommendation as to whether holders should deliver Consents in response to the Consent Solicitation. Holders must make their own decision as to whether to participate in the Consent Solicitation, and, if so, the principal amount of Notes in respect of which to deliver Consents. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell, a solicitation to buy or an offer to purchase or sell any securities. The Consent Solicitation is being made only pursuant to the Statement and only in such jurisdictions as is permitted under applicable law. In any jurisdiction in which the Consent Solicitation is required to be made by a licensed broker or dealer, the Consent Solicitation will be deemed to be made on behalf of the Company by the Joint Solicitation Agents, or one or more registered brokers or dealers that are licensed under the laws of such jurisdiction. About California Resources Corporation CRC is an independent oil and natural gas company committed to energy transition in the sector.

GeoPark Limited Announces Extension of Consent Solicitation and Increase of Consent Fee for Its 5.500% Senior Notes Due 2027 and Withdrawal of Consent Solicitation for Its 6.500% Senior Notes Due 2024

GeoPark Limited Announces Extension of Consent Solicitation and Increase of Consent Fee for Its 5.500% Senior Notes Due 2027 and Withdrawal of Consent Solicitation for Its 6.500% Senior Notes Due 2024 BOGOTA, Colombia, Jun. 14 /BusinessWire/ -- GeoPark Limited (NYSE:GPRK) (the "Company") today announced that it has extended the expiration date of its previously announced solicitation of consents (the "Consent Solicitation") from the holders of its 5.500% Senior Notes due 2027 (the "2027 Notes") for the adoption of certain proposed amendments (the "Proposed Amendments") to the indenture governing the 2027 Notes (the "Indenture"). The Proposed Amendments intend to (i) address the impact of adverse market conditions and related drop in the price of crude oil during 2020 on the Company's results, which in turn negatively impacted the restricted payments builder basket as currently in effect, and (ii) increase and reset the general restricted payments basket in the Indenture to provide the Company additional restricted payments capacity, giving the Company additional financial flexibility that is aligned to its improved performance beginning in 2021. The Consent Solicitation, which was previously scheduled to expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 15, 2022, will now expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 17, 2022, unless further extended (as so extended, the "Extended Expiration Time"). In addition, the Company announced that the consent fee for the Consent Solicitation with respect to the 2027 Notes will be increased so that holders of the 2027 Notes will receive a cash payment equal to $10.00 per $1,000 principal amount of 2027 Notes with respect to which such consents to the Proposed Amendments have been validly delivered prior to the Extended Expiration Time and not validly revoked by such holder. Finally, the Company announced that it has determined to withdraw and terminate its previously announced solicitation of consents from the holders of its 6.500% Senior Notes due 2024 (the "2024 Notes"). All consents delivered and received with respect to the 2024 Notes will be voided and no payment of any consent fee will be made to any holder of the 2024 Notes. The terms of the Consent Solicitation are detailed in the Consent Solicitation Statement, dated June 8, 2022 (as amended, supplemented or otherwise modified, the "Consent Solicitation Statement"). No consent fee will be paid to any holder of 2027 Notes for which the requisite consents have been obtained unless such holder delivers a consent and does not revoke such consent in accordance with the terms of the Consent Solicitation Statement prior to the Extended Expiration Time. Holders of the 2027 Notes who have previously delivered consents do not need to redeliver such consents or take any other action in response to this extension and increase in consent fee with respect to the 2027 Notes. Other holders of the 2027 Notes may deliver their consents in accordance with the instructions provided in the Consent Solicitation Statement at or prior to the Extended Expiration Time. Subject to applicable law, the Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) extend, terminate or withdraw the Consent Solicitation at any time or (ii) otherwise amend the Consent Solicitation in any respect, including waiving any or all of the conditions to the Consent Solicitation set forth in the Consent Solicitation Statement, at any time and from time to time. The Company further reserves the right, in its sole discretion, not to accept any deliveries of consents with respect to the 2027 Notes. The Company is making the Consent Solicitation only in those jurisdictions where it is legal to do so. Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC is acting as solicitation agent for the Consent Solicitation and can be contacted at Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Attn: Liability Management Group, Collect: (212) 538-2147 or U.S. Toll Free: (800) 820-1653, with questions regarding the Consent Solicitation. Copies of the Consent Solicitation Statement are available to holders of 2027 Notes from D.F. King & Co., Inc., the information agent, tabulation agent and paying agent for the Consent Solicitation. Requests for copies of the Consent Solicitation Statement should be directed to D.F. King at +1 (800) 967-5084 (toll free), +1 (212) 269-5550 (collect) or geopark@dfking.com. Neither the Consent Solicitation nor any related documents have been filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, nor have any such documents been filed with or reviewed by any federal or state securities commission or regulatory authority of any country. No authority has passed upon the accuracy or adequacy of the Consent Solicitation Statement or any related documents, and it is unlawful and may be a criminal offense to make any representation to the contrary. The Consent Solicitation is being made solely on the terms and conditions set forth in the Consent Solicitation Statement. Under no circumstances shall this press release constitute an offer to buy or the solicitation of an offer to sell the 2027 Notes or any other securities of the Company or any of its affiliates. The Consent Solicitation is not being made to, nor will the Company accept deliveries of consents from, holders in any jurisdiction in which the Consent Solicitation or the acceptance thereof would not be in compliance with the securities of blue sky laws of such jurisdiction. This press release also is not a solicitation of consents to the Proposed Amendments to the Indenture. No recommendation is made as to whether holders should deliver their consents with respect to the 2027 Notes. Holders should carefully read the Consent Solicitation Statement because it contains important information, including the various terms and conditions of the Consent Solicitation.
