CAUTIONARY NOTE TO INVESTORS
The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) permits oil and gas companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only proved, probable, and possible reserves that meet the SEC’s definitions for such terms. Apache may use certain terms on the Site, such as “resource,” “resource potential,” “net resource potential,” “potential resource,” “resource base,” “identified resources,” “potential net recoverable,” “potential reserves,” “unbooked resources,” “economic resources,” “net resources,” “undeveloped resource,” “net risked resources,” “inventory,” “upside” and other similar terms that the SEC guidelines strictly prohibit Apache from including in filings with the SEC. Such terms do not take into account the certainty of resource recovery, which is contingent on exploration success, technical improvements in drilling access, commerciality, and other factors and are therefore not indicative of expected future resource recovery and should not be relied upon. Any reserve estimates provided on the Site that are not specifically designated as being estimates of proved reserves may include estimated reserves not necessarily calculated in accordance with, or contemplated by, the SEC’s latest reserve reporting guidelines. Investors are urged to consider carefully the disclosure in Apache’s most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K and any amendments on Form 10-K/A, on the Site and in our other public filings and press releases. Apache’s Form 10-K and other SEC filings are available from Apache at www.apachecorp.com or by writing Apache at: 2000 Post Oak Blvd., Suite 100, Houston, Texas 77056 (Attn: Corporate Secretary). You can also obtain this report from the SEC by calling 1-800-SEC-0330 or from the SEC’s website at www.sec.govwww.sec.gov.
The Site contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “seeks,” “believes,” “continues,” “could,” “estimates,” “expects,” “guidance,” “may,” “might,” “outlook,” “possibly,” “potential,” “projects,” “prospects,” “should,” “will,” “would,” and similar references to future periods, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. These statements include, but are not limited to, statements about future plans, expectations and objectives for Apache’s operations, including statements about our capital plans, drilling plans, production expectations, asset sales, and monetizations. While forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and analyses made by us that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, whether actual results and developments will meet our expectations and predictions depend on a number of risks and uncertainties which could cause our actual results, performance, and financial condition to differ materially from our expectations. Any matters that are not historical facts are forward-looking and, accordingly, involve estimates, assumptions, risks and uncertainties. These risks include, but are not limited to the volatility of oil and natural gas prices, uncertainties inherent in estimating oil and natural gas reserves, drilling risks, and other risks, uncertainties and factors discussed, including under the caption “Risk Factors,” in Apache’s most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K and any amendments on Form 10-K/A, on the Site and in our other public filings and press releases. Any forward-looking statement made by Apache on the Site speaks only as of the date on which it is made. There is no assurance that Apache’s expectations will be realized, and actual results may differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. Apache undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future development or otherwise, except as may be required by law.

Upon receipt of such notification of alleged copyright infringement, Apache shall promptly investigate the matter, and, if appropriate, remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material. After Apache removes or disables access to such material, if such material was posted by a user of the Site, Apache will make reasonable efforts notify the party that posted the material of its action. Such party may then provide Apache’s designated agent proper “counter-notification” stating his, her or its authority to post the allegedly infringing material, which Apache will forward to the alleged copyright owner. Apache will inform the alleged copyright owner that Apache will repost the removed material or cease disabling access to it in ten to fourteen business days unless the alleged copyright owner sends a second notification to Apache’s designated agent stating that it has filed suit against the alleged infringer.
An effective counter notification must be sent to Apache’s designated agent, whose name and address are listed above. The notice must include the following information:
These Terms are the entire agreement between you and Apache. They supersede any and all prior or contemporaneous agreements between you and Apache relating to your use of the Site.
Apache’s failure at any time to require performance of any provision of these Terms or to exercise any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision or such right. Any waiver by Apache must be in writing. Unless the written waiver contains an express statement to the contrary, no waiver by Apache of any breach of any provision of these Terms or of any right provided for herein shall be construed as a waiver of any continuing or succeeding breach of such provision, a waiver of the provision itself, or a waiver of any right under these Terms.
If any part of these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, it will not impact any other provision of these Terms, all of which will remain in full force and effect.
These Terms are governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law; provided, however that no law, theory, or public policy shall be given effect which would undermine, diminish, or reduce the effectiveness of the waiver of damages provided in the paragraph above titled “LIABILITY DISCLAIMER,” it being your and Apache’s express intent, understanding, and agreement that such waiver is to be given the fullest effect, notwithstanding the negligence (whether sole, joint, or concurrent), gross negligence, willful misconduct, strict liability, or other legal fault of Apache or any other person. You expressly agree that exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any claim, dispute or cause of action involving Apache or relating in any way to your use of the Site shall be in the state or federal courts located in Harris County, Texas, and you expressly consent to the exercise of personal jurisdiction by such courts in connection with any such claim, dispute or cause of action.
The Site is owned and operated by Apache Corporation. All references in these Terms to “Apache”, “we”, “us”, “our” and like terms should be interpreted to cover Apache Corporation and its affiliates. However, these terms are not intended to describe any ownership or legal relationship that may exist among any entities.
