Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

On Tuesday, September 5, 2017, EOG Resources, Inc. (EOG) updated certain guidance items for third quarter 2017 to reflect the impact of hurricane and tropical storm Harvey on its South Texas and Eagle Ford operating areas. Compared to its guidance issued with second quarter 2017 results on August 1, 2017, EOG reduced the midpoint of its third quarter 2017 U.S. crude oil and condensate volume guidance range by 15 thousand barrels of oil per day, while full year 2017 U.S. crude oil and condensate volume guidance remains unchanged. In addition, third quarter and full year 2017 total natural gas liquids and U.S. natural gas volume guidance and full year 2017 capital expenditures guidance remain unchanged. See table below for the updated and confirmed guidance ranges.

For the safety of its employees and protection of facilities and equipment, EOG suspended drilling and completion operations and shut in production in certain areas of South Texas and the Eagle Ford in preparation for hurricane and tropical storm Harvey. Suspended operations and shut-ins are temporary and serve to defer production to a later date. EOG has begun to resume production as conditions permit, and expects the majority of the impact will be realized in the company’s third quarter 2017 crude oil and condensate volumes. The relative impact to full year 2017 crude oil and condensate volumes is smaller and EOG expects to offset the impact through adjustments to its drilling schedule.

EOG is not updating or confirming any other ranges for the third quarter and full year 2017 included in guidance issued with second quarter 2017 results on August 1, 2017.

Due to EOG’s diversity of operations, assets, midstream partners, takeaway and processing options, and downstream customers, EOG does not expect hurricane and tropical storm Harvey to have a material impact on its long-term operations, returns or growth prospects or on its business, financial condition or results of operations.
