Issuer:    Noble Energy, Inc.
Format:    SEC Registered
Trade Date:    August 8, 2017
Settlement Date:    August 15, 2017 (T+5)
   It is expected that delivery of the notes will be made against payment therefor on or about August 15, 2017, which is the fifth business day following the Trade Date (such settlement cycle being referred to as “T+5”). Pursuant to Rule 15c6-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle in three business days, unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade the notes on the date of pricing or the next succeeding business day will be required, by virtue of the fact that the notes initially will settle in T+5, to specify an alternative settlement cycle at the time of any such trade to prevent failed settlement. Purchasers of the notes who wish to trade notes on the date of pricing or the next succeeding business day should consult their own advisors.
