By 2017, we expect our net crude oil and natural gas production to grow about 20 percent to 3.3 Approximately 87% of the 2012 spending program is budgeted for upstream crude oil and natural gas exploration and production projects. Planned capital spending is also directed toward improving crude oil and natural gas recovery and reducing natural field declines of existing producing assets throughout the world. Global exploration funding is expected to be $3 billion in 2012.
