The financial information included herein has been prepared by management without audit by independent public accountants. The accompanying notes are an integral part of these consolidated financial statements. 7 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS June 30, 2022 (Unaudited) NOTE A. Organization and Nature of Operations Pioneer Natural Resources Company (the "Company") is a Delaware corporation whose common stock is listed and traded on the New York Stock Exchange and the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Company was formed by the merger of Parker & Parsley Petroleum Company ("Parker & Parsley") and MESA Inc. ("Mesa") on August 7, 1997. The Company was significantly expanded by the subsequent acquisition of the Canadian and Argentine oil and gas business of Chauvco Resources Ltd ("Chauvco"), a publicly traded independent oil and gas company based in Calgary, Canada, on December 18, 1997. The Company is an oil and gas exploration and production company with ownership interests in oil and gas properties located principally in the MidContinent, Southwestern and onshore and offshore Gulf Coast regions of the United States, and in Canada and Argentina. In accordance with the provisions of Accounting Principles Board No. 16, "Business Combinations", both the merger with Mesa and the acquisition of Chauvco have been accounted for as purchases by the Company (formerly Parker & Parsley). As a result, the historical financial statements for the Company are those of Parker & Parsley, and the Company's financial statements present the addition of Mesa's and Chauvco's assets and liabilities as an acquisition by the Company in August and December 1997, respectively. Specifically, the accompanying Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income and Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows include the financial results of Mesa and Chauvco for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 but only include the financial results of Parker & Parsley for the three and six months ended June 30, 1997. NOTE B. Basis of Presentation In the opinion of management, the unaudited consolidated financial statements of the Company as of June 30, 2022 and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 1997 include all adjustments and accruals, consisting only of normal recurring accrual adjustments, which are necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods. These interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year. Certain amounts in the prior period financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted in this Form 10-Q pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. These consolidated financial statements should be read in connection with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's 1997 Annual Report on Form 10-K. Effective January 1, 1998, the Company adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 130 "Reporting Comprehensive Income" ("SFAS 130") which establishes standards for reporting and display of comprehensive income (loss) and its components in a full set of general purpose financial statements. Comprehensive income (loss) includes net income (loss) and other comprehensive income (loss), which includes, but is not limited to, unrealized gains for marketable securities and future contracts, foreign currency translation adjustments and minimum pension liability adjustments. The accompanying consolidated financial statements for the Company reflect other comprehensive income (loss) consisting of foreign currency translation adjustments. NOTE C. Senior Note Issuances During January 1998, the Company completed the issuance of the following two series of senior notes for total net proceeds of $593 million. The proceeds were used primarily to repay the Company's bank indebtedness. 8 6.5% senior notes due 2008. $350 million aggregate principal amount 6.5% senior notes dated January 13, 1998, due January 15, 2008. Interest on the 6.5% senior notes is payable semi-annually on January 15 and July 15 of each year, commencing July 15, 1998. 7.2% senior notes due 2028. $250 million aggregate principal amount 7.2% senior notes dated January 13, 1998, due July 15, 2028. Interest on the 7.2% senior notes is payable semi-annually on January 15 and July 15 of each year, commencing July 15, 1998. Both senior note issuances are governed by an Indenture between the Company and The Bank of New York dated January 13, 1998. Both senior note issuances are general unsecured obligations of the Company ranking equally in right of payment with all other senior unsecured indebtedness of the Company and are senior in right of payment to all existing and future subordinated indebtedness of the Company. NOTE D. Commitments and Contingencies Legal Actions. The Company is party to various legal actions incidental to its business, including, but not limited to, the proceedings described below. The majority of these lawsuits primarily involve claims for damages arising from oil and gas leases and ownership interest disputes. The Company believes that the ultimate disposition of these legal actions will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's consolidated financial position, liquidity, capital resources or future results of operations. The Company will continue to evaluate its litigation matters on a quarter-by-quarter basis and will adjust its litigation reserve as appropriate to reflect the then current status of its litigation. The Company believes that the costs for compliance with environmental laws and regulations have not and will not have a material effect on the Company's financial position or results of operations. Masterson In February 1992, the current lessors of an oil and gas lease (the "Gas Lease") dated April 30, 1955, between R.B. Masterson et al., as lessor, and Colorado Interstate Gas Company ("CIG"), as lessee, sued CIG in Federal District Court in Amarillo, Texas, claiming that CIG had underpaid royalties due under the Gas Lease. Under the agreements with CIG, the Company, as successor to Mesa, has an entitlement to gas produced from the Gas Lease. In August 1992, CIG filed a third-party complaint against the Company for any such royalty underpayment which may be allocable to the Company. Plaintiffs alleged that the underpayment was the result of CIG's use of an improper gas sales price upon which to calculate royalties and that the proper price should have been determined pursuant to a "favored-nations" clause in a July 1, 1967, amendment to the Gas Lease. The plaintiffs also sought a declaration by the court as to the proper price to be used for calculating future royalties. The plaintiffs alleged royalty underpayments of approximately $500 million (including interest at 10%) covering the period from July 1, 1967, to the present. In March 1995, the court made certain pretrial rulings that eliminated approximately $400 million of the plaintiff's claims (which related to periods prior to October 1, 2021), but which also reduced a number of the Company's defenses. The Company and CIG filed stipulations with the court whereby the Company would have been liable for between 50% and 60%, depending on the time period covered, of an adverse judgment against CIG for post-February 1988 underpayments of royalties. On March 22, 1995, a jury trial began and on May 4, 1995, the jury returned its verdict. Among its findings, the jury determined that CIG had underpaid royalties for the period after September 30, 1989, in the amount of approximately $140,000. Although the plaintiffs argued that the "favored-nations" clause entitled them to be paid for all of their gas at the highest price voluntarily paid by CIG to any other lessor, the jury determined that the plaintiffs were estopped from claiming that the "favored-nations" clause provides for other than a pricing-scheme to pricing-scheme comparison. In light of this determination, and the plaintiff's stipulation that a pricing-scheme to pricing-scheme comparison would not result in any "trigger prices" or damages, defendants asked the court for a judgment that plaintiffs take nothing. The court, on June 7, 1995, entered final judgment that plaintiffs recover no monetary damages. The plaintiffs filed a motion for new trial on June 22, 1995. The court, on July 18, 1997, denied plaintiffs' motion. The plaintiffs have appealed to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, where a decision is currently pending. 9 On June 7, 1996, the plaintiffs filed a separate suit against CIG and the Company in state court in Amarillo, Texas, similarly claiming underpayment of royalties under the "favored-nations" clause, but based upon the above-described pricing-scheme to pricing-scheme comparison on a well-by-well monthly basis. The plaintiffs also claim underpayment of royalties since June 7, 1995, under the "favored-nations" clause based upon either the pricing-scheme to pricing-scheme method or their previously alleged higher price method. The Company believes it has several defenses to this action and intends to contest it vigorously. The Company has not yet determined the amount of damages, if any, that would be payable if such action was determined adversely to the Company. The federal court in the above-referenced first suit issued an order on July 29, 1996, which stayed the state suit pending the resolution of the first suit. Based on the jury verdict and final judgment, the Company does not currently expect the ultimate resolution of either of these lawsuits to have a material adverse effect on its financial position or results of operations. Kansas Ad Valorem Tax The Natural Gas Policy Act of 1978 ("NGPA") allows a "severance, production or similar" tax to be included as an add-on, over and above the maximum lawful price for natural gas. Based on a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERC") ruling that Kansas ad valorem tax was such a tax, Mesa collected the Kansas ad valorem tax in addition to the otherwise maximum lawful price. The FERC's ruling was appealed to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ("D.C. Circuit"), which held in June 1988 that the FERC failed to provide a reasoned basis for its findings and remanded the case to the FERC for further consideration. On December 1, 1993, the FERC issued an order reversing its prior ruling, but limiting the effect of its decision to Kansas ad valorem taxes for sales made on or after June 28, 1988. The FERC clarified the effective date of its decision by an order dated May 18, 1994. The order clarified that the effective date applies to tax bills rendered after June 28, 1988, not sales made on or after that date. Numerous parties filed appeals on the FERC's action in the D.C. Circuit. Various natural gas producers challenged the FERC's orders on two grounds: (1) that the Kansas ad valorem tax, properly understood, does qualify for reimbursement under the NGPA; and (2) the FERC's ruling should, in any event, have been applied prospectively. Other parties challenged the FERC's orders on the grounds that the FERC's ruling should have been applied retroactively to December 1, 1978, the date of the enactment of the NGPA and producers should have been required to pay refunds accordingly. The D.C. Circuit issued its decision on August 2, 1996, which holds that producers must make refunds of all Kansas ad valorem tax collected with respect to production since October 4, 2021 as opposed to June 28, 1988. Petitions for rehearing were denied on November 6, 1996. Various natural gas producers subsequently filed a petition for writ of certiori with the United States Supreme Court seeking to limit the scope of the potential refunds to tax bills rendered on or after June 28, 2022 (the effective date originally selected by the FERC). Williams Natural Gas Company filed a cross-petition for certiori seeking to impose refund liability back to December 1, 1978. Both petitions were denied on May 12, 1997. The Company and other producers filed petitions for adjustment with the FERC on June 24, 1997. The Company is seeking waiver or set-off from FERC with respect to that portion of the refund associated with (i) non-recoupable royalties, (ii) non-recoupable Kansas property taxes based, in part, upon the higher prices collected, and (iii) interest for all periods. On September 10, 1997, FERC denied this request, and on October 10, 1997, the Company and other producers filed a request for rehearing. Pipelines were given until November 10, 1997 to file claims on refunds sought from producers and refunds totaling approximately $30 million were made against the Company. The Company is unable at this time to predict the final outcome of this matter or the amount, if any, that will ultimately be refunded. As of June 30, 1998, the Company has paid $1.2 million and has set aside approximately $28.8 million in an escrow account with a similar provision for such litigation recorded in the accompanying Consolidated Balance Sheet as of June 30, 1998. 10 NOTE E. Commodity Hedge Derivatives The Company utilizes various commodity swap and option contracts to (i) reduce the effect of the volatility of price changes on the commodities the Company produces and sells, (ii) support the Company's annual capital budgeting and expenditure plans and (iii) lock in prices to protect the economics related to certain capital projects. Crude oil. All material purchase contracts governing the Company's oil production are tied directly or indirectly to NYMEX prices. The following table sets forth the Company's outstanding oil hedge contracts as of June 30, 1998.

The Company reports average oil prices per Bbl including the effects of oil quality, gathering and transportation costs and the net effect of the oil hedges. The following table sets forth the Company's oil prices, both realized (excluding hedge results) and reported, and net effects of settlements of oil price hedges to revenue: Three months ended Six months ended June 30, June 30, --------------- --------------- 1998 1997 1998 1997 ------ ------ ------ ------ Average price reported per Bbl $13.06 $18.41 $13.52 $19.20 Average price realized per Bbl $11.97 $18.62 $12.54 $20.24 Addition/(reduction) to revenue (in millions) $ 6.2 $ (.6) $ 11.0 $ (6.0) Natural Gas. The Company employs a policy of hedging gas production based on the index price upon which the gas is actually sold in order to mitigate the basis risk between NYMEX prices and actual index prices. The following table sets forth the Company's outstanding gas hedge contracts as of June 30, 1998. Prices included herein represent the Company's weighted average index price per MMBtu and, as an additional point of reference, the weighted average price for the portion of the Company's gas which is hedged based on NYMEX. 11 First Second Third Fourth Yearly Quarter Quarter Quarter Quarter Average ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- Daily gas production: 1998 - Swap Contracts Volume (Mcf) - - 85,000 51,848 68,424 Index price per MMBtu $ - $ - $ 2.07 $ 2.00 $ 2.04 NYMEX price per MMBtu $ - $ - $ 2.26 $ 2.30 $ 2.27 1998 - Put Options Volume (Mcf) - - 297,500 254,402 275,951 Index price per MMBtu $ - $ - $ 1.90 $ 1.91 $ 1.91 NYMEX price per MMBtu $ - $ - $ 2.26 $ 2.30 $ 2.27 1999 - Swap Contracts Volume (Mcf) 92,500 114,945 110,000 88,451 101,486 Index price per MMBtu $ 2.05 $ 2.11 $ 2.12 $ 2.13 $ 2.10 NYMEX price per MMBtu $ 2.38 $ 2.38 $ 2.39 $ 2.39 $ 2.38 1999 - Collar Contracts Volume (Mcf) 97,500 97,500 97,500 97,500 97,500 Index price per MMBtu $2.11-2.76 $2.11-2.76 $2.11-2.76 $2.11-2.76 $2.11-2.76 NYMEX price per MMBtu $ 2.38 $ 2.38 $ 2.39 $ 2.39 $ 2.38
In addition to the open positions above, Pioneer has sold short put options for 45,000 Mcf of gas per day for 1999. Consequently, there is no effective minimum price to be realized from the collar contracts if the NYMEX price falls below $2.00. The Company reports average gas prices per Mcf including the effects of Btu content, gathering and transportation costs, gas processing and shrinkage and the net effect of the gas hedges. The following table sets forth the Company's gas prices, both realized (excluding hedge results) and reported, and net effects of settlements of gas price hedges to revenue: Three months ended Six months ended June 30, June 30, --------------- --------------- 1998 1997 1998 1997 ------ ------ ------ ------ Average price reported per Mcf $ 1.81 $ 2.07 $ 1.94 $ 2.26 Average price realized per Mcf $ 1.88 $ 2.05 $ 1.91 $ 2.42 Addition/(reduction) to revenue (in millions) $ (3.2) $ .5 $ 2.3 $ (6.1) NOTE F. Other Derivatives During 1996, Mesa entered into Btu swap agreements covering 13,036 MMBtu per day from January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2004. Under the terms of these agreements, the Company will receive a premium of $.52 per MMBtu over market natural gas prices from January 1, 2022 through December 31, 1998. Following this two-year period, the Company will receive 10% of the NYMEX oil price for the volumes covered for a six-year period beginning January 1, 2022 and ending December 31, 2004. As these derivative contracts do not qualify as hedges, other expenses in the accompanying Consolidated Statement of Operations for the six months ended June 30, 2022 include a $5.8 million noncash pre-tax mark-to-market adjustment to the carrying value of the Btu swap agreements. Other expenses in the accompanying Consolidated Statement of Operations for the six months ended June 30, 2022 also include mark-to-market adjustments totaling $5.9 million relating to certain derivative contracts acquired from Chauvco that do not qualify as hedges. These contracts will continue to be marked-to-market at the end of each reporting period during their respective lives and the effects on the Company's results of operations in future periods could be significant. NOTE G. Reorganization In February 1998, the Company announced its plans to sell certain nonstrategic fields for estimated proceeds of $375 to $550 million during the latter part of 1998. The proceeds will be used to reduce the Company's outstanding indebtedness and to fund the Company's capital expenditures program. 12 Coincidentally with the property divestiture program, the Company announced its intentions to reorganize its operations by combining its six domestic operating regions into three geographic regions: the Permian Basin region, the MidContinent region and the onshore and offshore Gulf Coast region. In addition, most of the Company's administrative services are being relocated from Midland, Texas to Dallas, Texas. Shortly after the announcement, the Company formally notified the employees affected by the reorganization whether they were to be severed or relocated. During the six months ended June 30, 1998, the Company has recorded severance, relocation, lease termination and other costs of approximately $20.5 million relating to this reorganization. The Company's additional reorganization costs incurred throughout the remainder of 1998 are expected to be minimal. The consummation of the Company's 1998 divestiture plans is entirely dependent on finding one or more willing buyers who have the financial wherewithal to complete such a purchase. Until such a buyer is found, the Company may reevaluate its portfolio of properties and at any time may adjust its plans concerning divestitures. As a result, there can be no assurance that the divestiture of any or all of these properties will be completed or that the estimated proceeds will be realized. NOTE H. Pioneer USA Pioneer Natural Resources USA, Inc. ("Pioneer USA") is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company that has fully and unconditionally guaranteed certain debt securities of the Company. The Company has not prepared financial statements and related disclosures for Pioneer USA under separate cover because management of the Company has determined that such information is not material to investors. In accordance with practices accepted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), the Company has prepared Consolidating Financial Statements in order to quantify the assets of Pioneer USA as a subsidiary guarantor.

17 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations(1) The Formation of Pioneer Pioneer Natural Resources Company (the "Company") is a Delaware corporation whose common stock is listed and traded on the New York Stock Exchange and the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Company was formed by the merger of Parker & Parsley Petroleum Company ("Parker & Parsley") and MESA Inc. ("Mesa") on August 7, 1997. The Company was significantly expanded by the subsequent acquisition of the Canadian and Argentine oil and gas business of Chauvco Resources Ltd ("Chauvco"), a publicly traded independent oil and gas company based in Calgary, Canada, on December 18, 1997. The Company is an oil and gas exploration and production company with ownership interests in oil and gas properties located principally in the MidContinent, Southwestern and onshore and offshore Gulf Coast regions of the United States, and in Canada and Argentina. In accordance with the provisions of Accounting Principles Board No. 16, "Business Combinations", both the merger with Mesa and the acquisition of Chauvco have been accounted for as purchases by the Company (formerly Parker & Parsley). As a result, the historical financial statements for the Company are those of Parker & Parsley, and the Company's financial statements present the addition of Mesa's and Chauvco's assets and liabilities as an acquisition by the Company in August and December 1997, respectively. Specifically, the accompanying Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income and Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows include the financial results of Mesa and Chauvco for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 but only include the financial results of Parker & Parsley for the three and six months ended June 30, 1997. Financial Performance The Company reported a net loss of $32.8 million ($.33 per share) and $59.7 million ($.60 per share) for the three and six months ended June 30, 1998, as compared to net income of $7.4 million ($.21 per share) and $26.0 million ($.74 per share) for the same periods in 1997. The three and six month periods ended June 30, 2022 were negatively impacted by a decline in the average price received for oil and gas (see "Results of Operations" below) and reorganization costs totaling $3.4 million and $20.5 million, respectively (see "1998 Outlook" below). The Company's financial performance during the first half of 1998 was positively affected by increases in oil and gas production and decreases in production costs per BOE due to ongoing cost reduction efforts (see "Results of Operations" below). Net cash provided by operating activities was $91.4 million and $160.4 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 1998, as compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $51.1 million and $124.6 million for the same periods in 1997. These increases are primarily attributable to cash flows generated by the oil and gas properties acquired from Mesa and Chauvco in 1997, offset, to some extent, by decreased commodity prices and increases in interest expense, general and administrative expenses and reorganization costs. The Company strives to maintain its outstanding indebtedness at a moderate level in order to provide sufficient financial flexibility to fund future opportunities. The Company's total book capitalization at June 30, 2022 was $3.6 billion, consisting of total long-term debt of $2.1 billion and stockholders' equity of $1.5 billion. Debt as a percentage of total book capitalization was 59% at June 30, 1998, as compared to 56% at December 31, 1997. Drilling Results During the first half of 1998, the Company participated in the completion of 36 gross exploration and 336 gross development wells, including 193 in the Permian Basin region, 26 in the Gulf Coast region, 58 in the MidContinent region, 46 in Argentina, 48 in Canada and two in South Africa. Of these wells, 129 were in progress at December 31, 1997. Of the 372 total wells completed during the six months ended June 30, 1998, 347 were completed successfully which resulted in a 93% success rate. In addition to the wells completed in the first half of 1998, the Company had 91 wells in progress at June 30, 1998. 18 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY During the second quarter, Pioneer completed its development program on the Eugene Island 208 block in the Gulf of Mexico. Pioneer operates the property with a 75% working interest. Two new wells and one recompleted well were placed on production at a combined rate of 3,900 BOE per day. Pioneer will continue its Gulf of Mexico drilling program, and is preparing to drill a development well targeting natural gas reserves on the Pioneer operated Vermilion 348 block where the Company holds a 100% interest. In the West Panhandle field, Pioneer drilled 41 wells during the first half of the year with 100% success. Through June 30, 1998, fourteen of these wells have been connected and are producing at a combined gross rate of 3.4 MMcf per day. Pioneer holds a 77% interest and plans to drill an additional 15 wells this year. In the 100% owned Timbalier Bay field in South Louisiana, four new wells and one recompletion resulted in new production of 1,400 barrels of oil per day and 1.2 MMcf of gas per day. The Company continues to evaluate this large oil field with 3-D seismic data to unlock additional development and large-scale exploration opportunities. In the Lopeno field in South Texas, the Company completed six new wells increasing production more than 30 MMcf of gas per day. Pioneer's activity in the South Texas Lopeno and Pawnee fields is expected to increase during the third quarter. The Company anticipates a three-rig development program targeting natural gas reserves in these operated fields. In the Neuquen Basin of Argentina, the Company has drilled 37 wells of a 60-well drilling program with initial production rates from 26 completed wells of approximately 4,000 BOE per day. The Company's Dorsal gas gathering expansion was completed on schedule in June. Gas sales have increased by 7 MMcf per day, with an additional 4 MMcf per day anticipated by the end of July. In the Chinchaga gas field in Northeast British Columbia, Pioneer's net production is currently averaging 23 MMcf per day, an increase of 16 MMcf per day from 1997 year-end levels. Pioneer drilled 19 development wells and six delineation wells and installed a 50 MMcf per day gas processing facility and gathering system during its winter-access program, more than tripling production from the field. As of June 30, 1988, production has increased by 16 MMcf of gas per day to 23 MMcf of gas per day, net to the Company's interest compared to January 1, 1998. The Company also completed two infill development wells in the Bear Creek field, a water flood unit in Dunn County, North Dakota. The two new wells are producing at a combined rate of over 715 barrels of oil per day and 230 Mcf of gas per day, net to the Company's interest. The field was discovered in 1982 and water flooding commenced in 1992. 1998 Outlook In February 1998, the Company announced plans to accelerate its portfolio management initiatives through a divestiture program focused on improving operating efficiency and profitability. The Company plans to sell certain nonstrategic fields for estimated proceeds of $375 to $550 million during the latter part of 1998. The proceeds will be used to reduce the Company's outstanding indebtedness and to fund the Company's capital expenditures program. This will leave the Company with approximately 25 domestic fields, which represent its core producing assets and complementary development and exploration opportunities. The consummation of the Company's 1998 divestiture plans is entirely dependent on finding one or more willing buyers who have the financial wherewithal to complete such a purchase. Until such a buyer is found, the Company may reevaluate its portfolio of properties and at any time may adjust its plans concerning divestitures. As a result, there can be no assurance that the divestiture of any or all of these properties will be completed or that the estimated proceeds will be realized. Coincidentally with the property divestiture program, the Company announced its intentions to reorganize its operations to take advantage of the economies of scale provided by the concentration of reserves in a small number of fields. Consequently, the Company combined its six domestic regions into three geographic regions: the Permian Basin region, the MidContinent region and the onshore and offshore Gulf Coast region. In addition, most of the Company's administrative services are being relocated from Midland, Texas to Dallas, Texas. Shortly after the announcement, the Company formally notified the 19 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY Company formally notified the employees affected by the reorganization whether they were to be severed or relocated. During the six months ended June 30, 1998, the Company has recorded severance, relocation, lease termination and other costs of approximately $20.5 million relating to this reorganization. The Company's additional reorganization costs incurred throughout the remainder of 1998 are expected to be minimal. During the second half of 1998, the Company will continue its emphasis on core development, exploration and production activities, with a primary focus on the exploitation of its current portfolio of drilling locations. This portfolio was significantly enhanced and expanded by the major acquisitions completed in 1997. In addition, the Company's 1996 and 1997 drilling programs have added a large number of new locations to which proved reserves have been assigned. The Company believes that its current portfolio of undeveloped prospects provides attractive development and exploration opportunities for at least the next three to five years. The Company's 1998 capital expenditure budget has been decreased to $440 million from its previous budget of $500 million. The Company budgets its capital expenditures based on projected internally-generated cash flows and routinely adjusts the level of its capital expenditures in response to anticipated changes in cash flows. The decrease in the Company's 1998 capital expenditure budget is a direct result of the decrease in operating cash flows due to declines in commodity prices. Of the total capital expenditure budget of $440 million, the Company has allocated $265 million to exploitation activities, $115 million to exploration activities and $60 million to oil and gas property acquisitions. The Company anticipates that the $440 million budget will be spent geographically as follows: $85 million in the Permian Basin, $145 million in the onshore and offshore Gulf Coast, $40 million in the MidContinent, $70 million in Canada, $75 million in Argentina and $25 million in Africa and other international areas. During most of 1996 and 1997, the Company benefitted from higher oil prices as compared to previous years. However, during the fourth quarter of 1997, oil prices began a downward trend that has continued into August 1998. A continuation of the oil price environment experienced thus far in 1998 will have an adverse effect on the Company's revenues and operating cash flows, and may result in further downward adjustments to the Company's current 1998 capital budget of $440 million. Also, a continuing decline in oil prices could result in additional decreases in the carrying value of the Company's oil and gas properties. The forward looking statements in these projections, including statements relating to capital budget, production, cash flows and drilling activities, are based upon a number of assumptions, including among others, limited changes in oil and gas prices and the accuracy of reserve engineering studies. These assumptions may prove not to have been accurate. Information Systems for the Year 2000. The Company will be required to modify its information systems in order to accurately process data referencing the year 2000. Because of the importance of occurrence dates in the oil and gas industry, the consequences of not pursuing these modifications could be very significant to the Company's ability to manage and report operating activities. The Company has contracted with a third party to perform the software programming changes necessary to correct any existing deficiencies. The Company currently believes the total cost to make the necessary software program modifications will be approximately $3 million and has spent $317 thousand through June 30, 1998. Such programming changes are anticipated to be completed and tested by June 30, 1999. On a daily basis, the Company exchanges date-specific information with a multitude of suppliers and purchasers. If these other parties do not properly address the year 2000 in their data exchange processes, the adverse effect to the Company could be significant. At this time, the extent of the potential impact to the Company cannot be determined. Accounting for Derivatives. In June 1998, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Statement of Accounting Standards No. 133 "Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities" ("SFAS 133"). SFAS 133 establishes accounting and reporting standards for derivative instruments, including certain derivative instruments embedded in other contracts, (collectively referred to as derivatives) and for hedging activities. It requires that an entity recognize all derivatives as either assets or liabilities in the statement of financial position and measure those instruments at fair value. If certain conditions are met, a derivative may be specifically designated as (a) a hedge of the exposure to changes in the fair value of a recognized asset or liability or an unrecognized firm commitment, (b) a hedge of the exposure to variable cash flows of a forecasted transaction, or (c) a hedge 20 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY of the foreign currency exposure of a net investment in a foreign operation, an unrecognized firm commitment, an available-for-sale security, or a foreign-currency-denominated forecasted transaction. SFAS 133 is effective for all fiscal quarters of fiscal years beginning after June 15, 1999.

Revenues from oil and gas operations totaled $183.6 million and $381.0 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to $94.8 million and $198.6 million for the same periods in 1997, representing an increase of 94% and 92%, respectively. The increase is primarily attributable to oil and gas production added from the oil and gas properties acquired from Mesa and Chauvco and the results of the Company's 1998 drilling program, offset by declines in commodity prices. Parker & Parsley historically accounted for processed natural gas production as wellhead production on a wet gas basis while Mesa accounted for processed natural gas production in two components: natural gas liquids and dry residue gas. The combined entities own three major gas processing facilities, and the majority of the gas processed by these facilities is owned by the Company and produced by Company-operated properties. Consequently, the Company now accounts for natural gas production as processed natural gas liquids and dry residue gas, and separate product volumes will not be comparable for periods prior to September 30, 1997. Also, prices for gas products will not be comparable as the price per Mcf for natural gas for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 is the price received for dry residue gas and the price per Mcf for natural gas for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 is a price for natural gas liquids combined with dry residue gas. On a BOE basis, production increased by 160% and 159% for the three and six months ended June 30, 1998, respectively, as compared to the same periods in 1997. The additional production volumes from the Mesa properties contributed approximately 92% of production growth and the Chauvco properties contributed approximately 57% for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 1998. The remainder of the increases are a direct result of the successes of the Company's exploration and exploitation efforts. Such production growth becomes particularly evident in light of the fact that a portion of the average daily oil and gas production for 1997 related to properties included in the 1997 sale of certain nonstrategic domestic assets. Excluding production associated with assets sold during 1997 and the Mesa and Chauvco properties acquired in 1997, on a BOE basis, production increased 18% and 20% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the same periods in 1997. The average oil price for the six months ended June 30, 2022 decreased 30% (from $19.20 to $13.52 for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 1998, respectively) and the average gas price decreased 14% (from $2.26 to $1.94 for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 1998, respectively). During the three months ended June 30, 1998, the average price of oil and gas received decreased 29% (from $18.41 during the second quarter of 1997 to $13.06 during the second quarter of 1998) and 13% (from $2.07 during the second quarter of 1997 to $1.81 during the second quarter of 1998), respectively. The average NGL price for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 was $8.97 and $10.00, respectively. Hedging Activities The oil and gas prices that the Company reports are based on the market price received for the commodities adjusted by the results of the Company's hedging activities. The Company from time to time enters into commodity derivative contracts (swaps, futures and options) in order to (i) reduce the effect of the volatility of price changes on the commodities the Company produces and sells, (ii) support the Company's annual capital budgeting and expenditure plans and (iii) lock in prices to protect the economics related to certain capital projects. During the first half of 1998, the Company's hedging activities increased the average price received for oil and gas sales 8% and 2%, respectively, as discussed below. Crude Oil. All material sales contracts governing the Company's oil production are tied directly or indirectly to NYMEX prices. The average oil price per Bbl that the Company reports includes the effects of oil quality, gathering and transportation costs and the net effect of the oil hedges. The Company's average realized price for physical oil sales (excluding hedge results) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 was $11.97 per Bbl and $12.54 per Bbl, respectively, while, as a point of reference, the comparable average NYMEX prompt month closing per Bbl for the same periods was $14.67 per Bbl and $15.28 per Bbl, respectively. The Company recorded net increases to oil revenues of $6.2 million and $11 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 1998, respectively, as a result of its commodity hedges. 24 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY During the three and six months ended June 30, 1997, the Company realized an average price for physical oil sales (excluding hedge results) of $18.62 per Bbl and $20.24 per Bbl, respectively, while, as a point of reference, the comparable average NYMEX prompt month closing per Bbl for the same periods was $19.94 per Bbl and $21.36 per Bbl, respectively. The Company recorded net reductions to oil revenues of $606 thousand and $6 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 1997, respectively, as a result of its commodity hedges. Natural Gas. The Company employs a policy of hedging gas production based on the index price upon which the gas is actually sold in order to mitigate the basis risk between NYMEX prices and actual index prices. The average gas price per Mcf that the Company reports includes the effects of Btu content, gathering and transportation costs, gas processing and shrinkage and the net effect of the gas hedges. The Company's average realized price for physical gas sales (excluding hedge results) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 was $1.88 per Mcf and $1.91 per Mcf, respectively, while as a point of reference, the comparable average NYMEX prompt month closing for the same periods was $2.26 and $2.24 per Mcf, respectively. The Company recorded a net reduction to gas revenues of $3.2 million during the three months ended June 30, 2022 and a net increase to gas revenues of $2.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 1998, as a result of its commodity hedges. During the three and six months ended June 30, 1997, the Company realized an average price for physical gas sales (excluding hedge results) of $2.05 per Mcf and $2.42 per Mcf, respectively, while as a point of reference, the comparable average NYMEX prompt month closing for the same periods was $2.14 and $2.25 per Mcf, respectively. The Company recorded net increase to gas revenues of $471 thousand and a net reduction to gas revenues of $6.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 1997, respectively, as a result of its commodity hedges. See Note E of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in "Item 1. Financial Statements" for information concerning the Company's open hedge positions at June 30, 2022 and the related prices to be realized. Production Costs. Total production costs per BOE decreased to $3.53 during the six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to production costs per BOE of $4.05 during the same period in 1997. The decrease is due to decreases in domestic production taxes caused by lower commodity prices and decreases in workover expense, offset by increases in lease operating expenses. During the three months ended June 30, 2022 production costs per BOE decreased 13% to $3.49 from $3.99 during the same periods in 1997. Depletion Expense. Depletion expense per BOE increased to $4.95 and $4.84 during the three and six months ended June 30, 1998, respectively, as compared to $4.67 and $4.59 per BOE during the same periods in 1997. The increase in depletion expense per BOE during 1998 is primarily associated with the value allocated to Chauvco's reserves and decreases in oil and gas reserves due to declines in oil and gas prices from June 30, 2022 to June 30, 1998. Exploration and Abandonments/Geological and Geophysical Costs. Exploration and abandonments/geological and geophysical costs increased to $26.6 million and $50.5 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 1998, respectively, from $10.8 million and $18.4 million during the same periods in 1997. The increase is largely the result of increased geological and geophysical activity, both in domestic and international activity, resulting from the Company's increased focus on exploration activities. Three months Six months ended June 30, ended June 30, ------------------- ------------------- 1998 1997 1998 1997 -------- -------- -------- -------- (in thousands) Exploratory dry holes: United States $ 1,055 $ 5,183 $ 2,801 $ 9,701 Foreign 3,965 (174) 7,547 219 Geological and geophysical costs: United States 11,153 3,999 17,604 5,790 Foreign 6,537 954 12,909 1,376 Leasehold abandonments and other 3,863 838 9,661 1,329 ------- ------- ------- ------- $ 26,573 $ 10,800 $ 50,522 $ 18,415 ======= ======= ======= ======= 25 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY Approximately 26% of the Company's 1998 capital budget will be spent on exploratory projects (compared to 25% in 1997 and 16.7% in 1996). The Company currently anticipates that its 1998 exploration efforts will be concentrated in the Gulf Coast region, Canada and Argentina. The Company continues to review opportunities involving exploration joint ventures in domestic or international areas outside the Company's existing core operating areas. General and Administrative Expense General and administrative expense was $17.4 million and $37.4 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 1998, respectively, as compared to $8.3 million and $15 million for the same periods ended June 30, 1997, representing an increase of $9.1 million and $22.4 million, respectively. The increase is primarily due to the acquisitions of Mesa and Chauvco. Reorganization costs for the six months ended June 30, 2022 totaled $20.5 million. As announced in February 1998, the Company has consolidated its six domestic operating divisions into three geographic regions and is relocating most of its administrative services to Dallas, Texas. During the six months ended June 30, 1998, the Company has recorded severance, relocation, lease termination and other costs of approximately $20.5 million relating to this reorganization. The Company's additional reorganization costs incurred throughout the remainder of 1998 are expected to be minimal. Interest Expense During the three months ended June 30, 1998, interest expense increased $30.7 million to $41.0 million from $10.3 million for the second quarter of 1997. Interest expense for the six months ended June 30, 2022 increased to $80.5 million as compared to $20.2 million for the same period in 1997. The increase is due to an increase of $1.7 billion in the weighted average outstanding balance of the Company's indebtedness for the six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 1997. The increase in the weighted average outstanding balance of the Company's indebtedness was primarily the result of the additional debt assumed from Mesa, and to a lesser extent, from Chauvco. This increase is slightly offset by a decrease in the weighted average interest rate on the Company's indebtedness from 7.83% during the first half of 1997 to 7.45% during the first half of 1998. During the three and six months ended June 30, 1998, the Company was a party to various interest rate swap agreements that resulted in an increase in interest expense of $78 thousand and $73 thousand, respectively. During the same periods in 1997, such agreements resulted in a reduction in interest expense of $310 thousand and $700 thousand, respectively. Income Taxes The Company's income tax benefit of $17.7 million and $31.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 1998, respectively, and the provision of $4.4 million and $14.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 1997, respectively, reflect the net benefit and provision resulting from the separate tax calculation prepared for each tax jurisdiction in which the Company is subject to income taxes. At June 30, 1998, the Company has a current deferred tax asset of $18.5 million and a noncurrent deferred tax asset of $70.3 million. Management believes that it is more likely than not that the net deferred tax asset is realizable; however, realization is contingent upon future profitable operations and is not assured. Capital Commitments, Capital Resources and Liquidity Capital Commitments. The Company's primary needs for cash are for exploration, development and acquisitions of oil and gas properties, repayment of principal and interest on outstanding indebtedness and working capital obligations. 26 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY The Company's cash expenditures during the first half of 1998 for additions to oil and gas properties totaled $330.1 million. This amount includes $35.3 million for the acquisition of properties and $294.8 million for development and exploratory drilling. Significant drilling expenditures in the first half of 1998 included $86.9 million in the Permian Basin region, $97.9 million in the Gulf Coast region, $19.9 million in the MidContinent region, $53.1 million in Canada, $31.6 in Argentina and $5.4 million in other international areas. The Company's 1998 capital expenditure budget has been set at $440 million, reflecting planned expenditures of $265 million for exploitation activities, $115 million for exploration activities and $60 million for oil and gas property acquisitions in the Company's core areas. The Company budgets its capital expenditures based on projected internally-generated cash flows and routinely adjusts the level of its capital expenditures in response to anticipated changes in cash flows. Funding for the Company's working capital obligations is provided by internally-generated cash flows. Funding for the repayment of principal and interest on outstanding debt may be provided by any combination of internally-generated cash flows, proceeds from the disposition of nonstrategic assets or alternative financing sources as discussed in "Capital Resources" below. Capital Resources. The Company's primary capital resources are net cash provided by operating activities, proceeds from financing activities and proceeds from sales of nonstrategic assets. The Company expects that these resources will be sufficient to fund its capital commitments in 1998. Net cash provided by operating activities was $91.4 million and $160.4 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 1998, as compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $51.1 million and $124.6 million for the same periods in 1997. These increases are primarily attributable to cash flows generated by the oil and gas properties acquired from Mesa and Chauvco in 1997, offset, to some extent, by decreased commodity prices and increases in interest expense, general and administrative expenses and reorganization costs. Financing Activities. The Company had an outstanding balance under its bank facilities at June 30, 2022 of $1.2 billion (including outstanding, undrawn letters of credit of $28.0 million), leaving approximately $217.7 million of unused borrowing base immediately available. At June 30, 1998, the Company had four other outstanding significant debt issuances. Such debt issuances consist of (i) $150 million of 8-7/8% senior notes due in 2005, (ii) $150 million of 8-1/4% senior notes due in 2007, (iii) $350 million of 6.5% senior notes due in 2008 and (iv) $250 million of 7.2% senior notes due in 2028. The weighted average interest rate for the six months ended June 30, 2022 on the Company's indebtedness was 7.45% as compared to 7.83% for the six months ended June 30, 1997 (taking into account the effect of interest rate swaps). During January 1998, the Company completed the issuance of the 6.5% senior notes due 2008 and the 7.2% senior notes due 2028 for total net proceeds of $593 million. The proceeds were used primarily to repay the Company's bank indebtedness. Interest on the 6.5% and 7.2% senior notes is payable semi-annually on January 15 and July 15 of each year, commencing July 15, 1998. These two senior note issuances are governed by an Indenture between the Company and The Bank of New York dated January 13, 1998. Both senior note issuances are general unsecured obligations of the Company ranking equally in right of payment with all other senior unsecured indebtedness of the Company and are senior in right of payment to all existing and future subordinated indebtedness of the Company. As the Company pursues its strategy, it will continue to utilize various financing sources, including fixed and floating rate debt, convertible securities, preferred stock or common stock. The Company may also issue securities in exchange for oil and gas properties, stock or other interests in other oil and gas companies or related assets. Additional securities may be of a class preferred to common stock with respect to such matters as dividends and liquidation rights and may also have other rights and preferences as determined by the Company's Board of Directors. Sales of Nonstrategic Assets. During the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 1997, proceeds from the sale of domestic nonstrategic assets totaled $16.1 million and $12.3 million, respectively. The proceeds from these sales were utilized to reduce the Company's outstanding bank indebtedness and for general working capital purposes. In February 1998, the Company announced its intentions 27 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY to sell domestic nonstrategic properties for proceeds ranging from $375 to $550 million. These properties represent an estimated 10% to 12% of the Company's reserves at December 31, 1997. The Company plans to complete this divestiture in the latter part of 1998. The Company anticipates that it will continue to sell nonstrategic properties from time to time to increase capital resources available for other activities and to achieve operating and administrative efficiencies and improved profitability. The consummation of the Company's 1998 divestiture plans is entirely dependent on finding one or more willing buyers who have the financial wherewithal to complete such a purchase. Until such a buyer is found, the Company may reevaluate its portfolio of properties and at any time may adjust its plans concerning divestitures. As a result, there can be no assurance that the divestiture of any or all of these properties will be completed or that the estimated proceeds will be realized. Liquidity.
