  6. 6. Exhibit 99.1      NEWS RELEASE               NOBLE ENERGY ANNOUNCES FOURTH QUARTER AND YEAR-END 2015 RESULTS • Quarterly capital expenditures totaled $527 million, below the low end of guidance, and less than discretionary cash flow (1) and cash flow from operations. • Exited the fourth quarter of 2015 with $5 billion in liquidity, including cash on hand and undrawn credit facility. • Continued strong performance in all core areas drove record quarterly sales volumes of 422 MBoe/d, above the increased guidance range. Set a new quarterly record for DJ Basin volumes of 121 MBoe/d. • Reduced unit lease operating expense 36 percent year over year to $3.76 per BOE. • Continued drilling and completion efficiencies across the entire U.S. Onshore region, highlighted by normalized well costs under $3 million in Wells Ranch for extended reach laterals. • Commenced production on five Lower Eagle Ford wells, averaging a 30-day IP of approximately 5 MBoe/d per well. • Big Bend and Dantzler projects, in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, reached combined peak production of over 20 MBoe/d, net. • Israel regulatory framework was implemented and the first export permit was granted for future gas sales to Egypt. • Organic reserve additions replaced 2015 production 1.5 times (excluding acquisitions and price-related revisions). HOUSTON (February 17, 2016) -- Noble Energy, Inc. (NYSE: NBL ) (“Noble Energy” or “the Company”) announced today results for the fourth quarter of 2015, including adjusted net income (1) of $191 million , or $0.44 per diluted share. A reported net loss for the quarter of $2.0 billion was negatively impacted by $2.2 billion of primarily non-cash items, which are not considered by analysts in published estimates. Net cash provided by operating activities of $576 million and discretionary cash flow (1) of $609 million were in excess of capital expenditures of $527 million. Total Company volumes for the fourth quarter of 2015 increased to 422 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day (MBoe/d), up more than eight percent versus the third quarter of 2015 and the fourth quarter of 2014 (pro-forma for the Rosetta Resources Inc. merger). Liquids comprised 47 percent (33 percent crude oil and condensate and 14 percent natural gas liquids) of fourth quarter 2015 volumes, with natural gas the remaining 53 percent. U.S. sales volumes for the quarter totaled 295 MBoe/d, while International sales volumes were 127 MBoe/d. Total sales volumes were higher than produced volumes by more than five thousand barrels per day (MBbl/d) due to the timing of liquids lifting in Equatorial Guinea. Excluding the Company’s Texas properties, which were acquired in July of 2015, sales volumes were 362 MBoe/d for the fourth quarter of 2015, up 15 percent compared to the fourth quarter of the previous year. This increase was primarily a result of the Company’s continued horizontal completions and production optimization within the U.S. unconventional assets, the startup of
  7. 7. Big Bend and Dantzler in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, and higher Israel natural gas demand. David L. Stover, Noble Energy’s Chairman, President and CEO, commented, “Noble Energy ended 2015 by delivering another outstanding operational quarter. We have substantially improved capital efficiency across our business, evidenced by a continued reduction in well costs as well as completion enhancements in each of our core onshore assets. At the same time, our unit operating costs have been reduced to the lowest level in the last eight years. We also successfully integrated our new Texas assets and have quickly delivered a step-change in performance. Our offshore major project proficiency was demonstrated once again with new project startups in the Gulf of Mexico, and we have established strong forward momentum for our projects in the Eastern Mediterranean. With a high-quality, low-cost, and diverse portfolio, bolstered by strong liquidity and a sound balance sheet, we enter 2016 well positioned to manage within cash flow and sustain our strong operating performance.” Fourth quarter 2015 total operating costs, including lease operating expense, production taxes and transportation, averaged $6.93 per barrel of oil equivalent (BOE), down 22 percent from the fourth quarter of 2014. Depreciation, depletion, and amortization totaled $17.67 per BOE during the fourth quarter of 2015, which reflects the impact of commodity price-driven reserve revisions recorded at year-end. General and administrative costs were lower than anticipated due primarily to a reduction of personnel costs. Fourth quarter adjustments to net loss included approximately $1.3 billion of non-cash impairments, including $490 million related to assets in the Gulf of Mexico and Equatorial Guinea and $779 million related to goodwill. The Company had unrealized commodity derivative losses of $156 million, resulting from the value change of existing crude oil and natural gas hedge positions as of the end of the year. Noble Energy also adjusted $95 million from exploration expense, following the Company’s decision to exit its Nevada exploration program. During the quarter, Noble Energy implemented a change in tax policy and outlook regarding the indefinite reinvestment of international earnings. This item, which was also adjusted from earnings, enhances the Company’s financial flexibility with regards to global cash management. For the fourth quarter, the remaining adjusted tax benefit reflects the balance of U.S. versus international earnings, as well as the transition from interim reporting to full-year tax position. OPERATIONS UPDATE DJ BASIN Sales volumes averaged 121 MBoe/d in the fourth quarter of 2015, up four percent from the third quarter of 2015 and 12 percent over the fourth quarter of last year. Essentially all of the increase in volumes for the respective periods is liquids, driven mostly by crude volumes. Liquids increased to 68 percent of fourth quarter 2015 DJ Basin volumes (51 percent crude oil and condensate and 17 percent natural gas liquids) and 32 percent was natural gas. Horizontal production in the DJ Basin increased
  8. 8. to 97 MBoe/d. In the Company’s primary areas of activity, Wells Ranch and East Pony, combined sales volumes averaged 62 MBoe/d during the quarter, up 35 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. Highlights include: • Reduced normalized extended reach lateral length well costs, including allocated facilities, to below $3 million in Wells Ranch. • Average drilling time for a standard lateral length well (4,500 lateral feet) remained under six days, while medium (6,000 lateral feet) and long (9,000 lateral feet) wells are being drilled in seven and eight days, respectively. • Drilled 31 wells at an average lateral length of over 6,900 feet. The Company reduced its full year 2015 average drilling cost per lateral foot by 40 percent from 2014. • Commenced production on 30 wells (equivalent to 50 standard lateral length wells). Included in the wells was the Company’s first East Pony Codell well. Production results from the well are encouraging and consistent with equivalent Niobrara wells nearby. • Completion design optimization continues to positively impact well productivity. Over 70 percent of the wells completed during the quarter utilized slickwater fluid design, and these wells continue to outperform similar hybrid gel wells. • DCP Grand Parkway, a low-pressure gathering system in the northern part of Greater Wattenberg, commenced service in late December, further lowering line pressures and enhancing gas transport system reliability. • The Company exited 2015 with 45 wells drilled but uncompleted. TEXAS (EAGLE FORD AND PERMIAN) Production volumes for the Eagle Ford and Permian assets averaged 60 MBoe/d in the fourth quarter of 2015, up 11 percent versus the volumes these assets produced in the third quarter of 2015. Liquids increased to 62 percent of the total (crude oil and condensate represented 27 percent and NGLs were 35 percent), while natural gas accounted for 38 percent. 87 percent of the volumes were from the Eagle Ford assets and 13 percent from the Permian. Highlights include: • Drilled four operated wells to total depth, including three Lower Eagle Ford wells and one Wolfcamp A well in the Permian’s Delaware Basin. Drilling times have been reduced significantly versus prior performance on these assets. • Commenced production on five Lower Eagle Ford wells. Included in the wells brought online were the Gates 05D 10-20, 14-20 and 18-20. The average 90-day production rate for each of the wells, with an average lateral length of approximately 7,000 feet and completed on 1,000 foot lateral spacing, was 4,210 Boe/d (10-20), 5,160 Boe/d (14-20) and 5,285 Boe/d (18-20). • The two most recent wells brought on production were designed to test enhanced completions on tighter lateral spacing (500 equivalent feet). The wells, Gates 05D 22-20 and 24-20 with an average lateral length of 6,500 feet, were completed with 40 foot cluster spacing and approximately 2,000 pounds of proppant per lateral foot. The 30-day IP for the wells was 4,200 and 3,870 Boe/d, respectively. Production from both wells, when normalized to a 5,000 foot lateral, is higher than the three million barrel type curve, which is based on wider lateral spacing. • There were 55 wells drilled but uncompleted (including 40 wells in the Eagle Ford and 15 wells in the Delaware) at the end of 2015. MARCELLUS SHALE Production volumes in the Marcellus Shale averaged 530 million cubic feet of natural gas equivalent per day (MMcfe/d) in the
  9. 9. fourth quarter of 2015, an eight percent increase over the third quarter of 2015 and 40 percent more than the same quarter of last year. Natural gas represented 87 percent of fourth quarter 2015 volumes, with the remaining 13 percent primarily composed of natural gas liquids (NGLs). Highlights include: • Commenced production on the Company’s first Utica well, the 9,345 foot lateral MND-6H located in Marshall County, West Virginia. Production from the well reached 61 MMcf/d during flowback and is currently producing 20 MMcf/d on a reduced choke to manage pressure draw down. • Joint Venture partner CONSOL Energy completed 11 dry gas wells during the quarter. • Exited the year with 85 wells drilled but uncompleted (54 wells in the wet gas and 31 in the dry gas area) in the Joint Venture. • CONE Midstream Partners gathered record average gross throughput volume of 1.3 billion cubic feet equivalent per day during the fourth quarter, an increase of 46 percent from the same quarter last year. Additionally, CONE completed a de- bottlenecking project that added approximately 30 MMcfe/d of throughput during the quarter. GULF OF MEXICO In the Gulf of Mexico, sales volumes averaged 23 MBoe/d, a 91 percent increase versus the third quarter of 2015 and 33 percent versus the same quarter of last year. This increase was driven by the startup of production at Big Bend and Dantzler. Crude oil and condensate represented 84 percent of fourth quarter 2015 volumes, while five percent was NGLs and 11 percent was natural gas. Highlights include: • Combined production from the Big Bend and Dantzler development achieved a peak rate of over 20 MBoe/d, net. • Finished subsea installation and construction on the Gunflint development. During the quarter, the Company completed the Gunflint #2 and #4 wells. The project remains within budget and on schedule for a mid-2016 startup. • Commenced drilling operations on the Silvergate prospect late in the fourth quarter. Noble Energy operates the prospect with a 50 percent working interest. Silvergate, located in Mississippi Canyon 339, is a Miocene-aged target with subsea tieback potential. WEST AFRICA Sales volumes in West Africa averaged 85 MBoe/d, which was 46 percent crude oil and condensate, seven percent NGLs, and 47 percent natural gas. Sales volumes for the quarter exceeded production volumes by approximately five MBbl/d as a result of the timing of liquids lifting from the Alen field and Alba. Highlights include: • The Alba compression project installation progressed and remains on schedule. • Interpretation of the latest 3D seismic data is underway over Blocks O and I offshore Equatorial Guinea. EASTERN MEDITERRANEAN In the Eastern Mediterranean, Israel natural gas sales volumes averaged 252 MMcfe/d, an increase of approximately 10 percent versus the fourth quarter of last year, driven by higher power generation needs.
  10. 10. Highlights include: • Israel natural gas regulatory framework was implemented and enabled the Company to begin marketing Leviathan gas to Israeli customers. • Progress on finalizing gas sales agreements continues with multiple regional customers. Signed a Letter of Intent to supply Dolphinus Holdings Ltd. with approximately 400 MMcf/d, gross, from Leviathan over 10 years for Egyptian industrial use. • Received the first export permit for future gas sales to Egypt. • Initiated marketing to regional customers for gas from the Cyprus Aphrodite field. • Signed an agreement to divest the Tanin and Karish fields for a total deal value of $73 million. Cash consideration was received in January 2016. • Executed a farm-out agreement in Block 12, offshore Cyprus, with BG International. Noble Energy maintains operatorship with a working interest of 35 percent. The transaction closed and cash consideration of $125 million was received in January 2016. The remaining $40 million will be collected in early 2017. PROVED RESERVES Estimated reserves at year-end 2015 were 1.4 billion barrels of oil equivalent, up one percent from 2014 year-end. Excluding acquisitions and commodity price revisions, the Company had total additions of 191 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMBoe) versus production of 130 MMBoe during the year. Organic reserve replacement, excluding price-related revisions, was 147 percent. Reserves in the U.S., including Gulf of Mexico, were 62 percent of the Company’s total, with assets in Equatorial Guinea and Israel making up the remaining 38 percent. The composition of reserves at the end of 2015 is 35 percent liquids, 33 percent international natural gas and 32 percent U.S. natural gas. Unconventional U.S. reserve replacement, excluding acquisition and commodity price revisions, was 2.3 times production, reflecting development activity and improved well performance in the DJ Basin and Marcellus Shale. During 2015, the Company added 269 MMBoe of proved reserves through the Rosetta merger. The impact of lower SEC commodity prices, utilized in the preparation of proved reserve reporting, resulted in a reserve reduction of 307 MMBoe versus 2014. Approximately 50 percent of the price-related reserves impact was related to the Company’s Marcellus estimations. Proved developed reserves represent approximately 66 percent of total proved reserves at the end of the year, up three percent from year-end 2014.

  19. 19. Exhibit 99.2      NEWS RELEASE               NOBLE ENERGY DETAILS 2016 OUTLOOK AND GUIDANCE • Total 2016 capital estimated at $1.5 billion, approximately 50 percent lower than 2015 • Focus on managing within total cash flows and maintaining financial strength in the current commodity environment • Targeting two-thirds of capital program to onshore U.S. unconventional assets and one-third to offshore development and exploration • Expect full-year sales volumes up 10 percent over 2015 reported totals (consistent with full-year 2015 pro-forma for the Rosetta Resources Inc. merger) • Anticipate liquids volumes will increase by approximately 20 MBbl/d over 2015 reported total HOUSTON (February 17, 2016) - Noble Energy, Inc. (NYSE: NBL ) (“Noble Energy” or “the Company”) today provided full 2016 annual guidance. As previously indicated, capital expenditures, including capitalized interest, for 2016 are expected to total $1.5 billion, and average sales volumes for the year are projected to be approximately 390 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day (MBoe/d). David L. Stover, the Company's Chairman, President and CEO, commented, “Starting early last year, we successfully executed on our strategy to align activity levels and underlying costs with the current market outlook, while maintaining strong operating momentum. These actions enabled us to enter 2016 with line of sight on managing the business within total cash flow. Protecting our balance sheet is fundamental in this environment. Our 2016 capital program ensures financial strength and high operating capability, while building long-term value for the shareholders. Although we are not focused on accelerating near-term production growth into a challenging commodity market, our ability to maintain, and even grow production, with a much reduced capital program than last year, is a testament to both our asset quality and portfolio diversity. We have tremendous optionality in how we allocate capital, and we will continue to optimize activity levels as we proceed throughout the year.” Initial Capital Program
  20. 20. The Company’s 2016 capital program represents an approximate 50 percent reduction from 2015 levels (pro-forma for Rosetta). Investments in onshore U.S. unconventional development comprise two-thirds of the total. Activity will be primarily focused on drilling, completion and associated midstream investments in the Wells Ranch and East Pony IDPs in the DJ Basin, while also furthering development of the Eagle Ford and delineation of the Delaware Basin assets. Capital expenditures in the Marcellus Shale will be limited to the completion of certain previously-drilled wells, primarily located in non-operated dry gas areas. Noble Energy’s total onshore U.S. rig count is expected to fluctuate between three and four horizontal rigs throughout the year. Two rigs are planned on average for the DJ Basin, while the Eagle Ford and Delaware Basin assets will utilize between one and two rigs combined. The Company anticipates drilling approximately 115 wells to total depth, 80 percent of which are planned in the DJ Basin, where activity will be focused on maximizing lateral lengths and enhancing completion techniques. Remaining drilling activity is split relatively evenly between the Eagle Ford and Delaware Basin. Approximately 215 wells are anticipated to commence production in the U.S. unconventional business during the year. The remaining one-third of the capital program is allocated to offshore development and exploration activities. This is mainly driven by the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, including the completion of the Gunflint major project. Noble Energy anticipates drilling two to three offshore exploration wells, including the Silvergate prospect and an appraisal at the Katmai oil discovery. International capital expenditures include the Alba compression project in Equatorial Guinea and certain pre-FID expenditures for the advancement of Eastern Mediterranean projects. Anticipated capital expectations by business unit: Initial 2016 Capital Program ($ MM) DJ Basin $600   Gulf of Mexico $250 Eagle Ford $150   West Africa $75 Delaware $100   Eastern Med. $100 Marcellus Shale $150   Other $75 U.S Unconventional $1,000   Offshore / Other $500                           Total Company $1,500 Sales Volumes Full year sales volumes are anticipated to average approximately 390 MBoe/d for 2016, which represents a 10 percent increase over 2015 reported totals and essentially flat pro-forma for the Rosetta merger. Liquids are anticipated to comprise 45 percent of total 2016 volumes (32 percent crude oil and condensate and 13 percent natural gas liquids) with the remaining 55 percent natural gas.
  21. 21. For the full year, total liquids volumes are anticipated to be up approximately 20 MBbl/d over last year, with the increase split relatively evenly between crude oil and natural gas liquids. In the Gulf of Mexico, oil volumes are expected to be up substantially due to the impact of the Big Bend and Dantzler projects, which commenced production in late 2015, and the Gunflint development on schedule for startup in mid-2016. The increase in the Gulf of Mexico will more than offset anticipated downtime associated with the Alba compression project installation in Equatorial Guinea. Project installation is underway and expected complete early in the second quarter of 2016. The Company is anticipating natural gas sales volumes in Israel, which is driven by demand trends, to be consistent with 2015 levels. Natural gas exports to neighboring countries could commence in 2016, offering additional upside to the Company’s guidance. In the U.S. unconventional business and based on planned drilling and completion activity, volumes from the DJ Basin are expected to be down some, while Marcellus and Texas (pro-forma) production are expected to show year on year increases. First quarter 2016 sales volumes are expected to average between 395 and 405 MBoe/d, down from the fourth quarter of 2015 primarily as a result of downtime associated with the Alba compression project. Full detailed first quarter 2016 guidance is provided in the Company’s supplemental slides for today’s upcoming conference call. The slides are available on the Company’s website. 2016 Full-year Operational and Financial Guidance The breakdown of our estimated annual average daily volumes for 2016 by product and location is: Crude Oil and Condensate (MBbl/d) United States 94 - 98 Equatorial Guinea 24 - 28 Equatorial Guinea - equity method investment 1 - 2 Natural Gas Liquids (MBbl/d) United States 45 - 50 Equatorial Guinea - equity method investment 4 - 5 Natural Gas (MMcf/d) United States 820 - 850 Equatorial Guinea 190 - 210 Israel 240 - 265
