A Significant portion of Denbury’s activities are completed by Denbury’s contractors and suppliers. A majority of these contractors and suppliers work in our fields in the Gulf Coast and Rocky Mountain regions.

102-9 Supply chain Denbury’s supply chain is comprised of thousands of suppliers and independent contractors, ranging from multinational corporations to local businesses, who provide Denbury with products, materials and services integral to our business. Our supply chain department consists of procurement professionals who seek an ethical, diverse and highly distributed supply chain to reduce costs and procure high quality products and services. In 2017 and 2018, Denbury spent approximately $368 million and $417 million, respectively, in procurement costs company-wide.

Proved Reserves Data Year Ended December 31, 2018

As of December 31, 2018, Denbury’s proved reserves were approximately 262 million barrels of oil equivalent (“MMBOE”), consisting of 255 million barrels of crude oil, condensate and natural gas liquids (together, “liquids”), and 7 MMBOE (or 43 Bcf) of natural gas. Reserves were 97% liquids and 88% proved developed, and 58% of such reserves were attributable to Denbury’s CO2 EOR operations. Total tertiary reserves at December 31, 2018 were 151 MMBOE and total non-tertiary reserves were 111 MMBOE.

The reserve estimates were prepared in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board Codification Topic 932, Extractive Industries – Oil and Gas, using the arithmetic averages of the first-day-of-the-month NYMEX commodity price for each month during 2018. These prices were $65.56 per Bbl for crude oil and $3.10 per MMBtu for natural gas.

Production Data Year Ended December 31, 2018

Denbury’s 2018 production totaled 58,532 barrels of oil per day (“Bbls/d”) and 10,854 thousand cubic feet ("Mcf") of natural gas per day. Oil production included 38,134 Bbls/d from tertiary properties and 20,398 Bbls/d from non-tertiary properties.

GRI 300: ENVIRONMENTAL
Emissions
305-1 Direct (Scope 1) GHG emissions See Details
See information and charts below

We report GHG emissions in accordance with the Environmental Protection Agency’s (“EPA”) Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (“GHGRP”). We report under the following subparts and in accordance with the following criteria:

Subpart PP – Suppliers of CO2

Subpart PP was finalized by the EPA in October 2009 and has undergone subsequent revisions since it was published. We submitted our first Subpart PP report in September 2011 for the reporting year 2010. Under this subpart, we are required to annually report the amount of CO2 supplied from our CO2 production fields and the amount delivered to various industrial customers, including our enhanced oil recovery ("EOR") operations.

Subpart UU – Injection of CO2

Subpart UU of the GHGRP was finalized by the EPA in 2011 and the first reports were due in September 2012. Subpart UU requires reporting for a well or group of wells that inject CO2 into the subsurface. This includes Underground Injection Control (UIC) Class II wells in which CO2 is injected for the purposes of EOR. This subpart does not include UIC Class VI wells into which CO2 is injected for the purpose of permanent geologic sequestration. Denbury currently does not operate any Class VI injection wells.

The amount of CO2 reported under this subpart does not include the amount of post-separation CO2 recycled at the central oil production facility and re-injected via CO2 injection wells. We reported the CO2 injection amounts under this subpart for 14 EOR fields in our Gulf Coast operating region in 2011 and 2012. Two additional fields were reported in 2013 which are located in Montana (Bell Creek) and Wyoming (Grieve).

Subpart W – Petroleum and Natural Gas Systems

The EPA finalized Subpart W of the GHGRP in 2011. This subpart has been through several revisions since it was first published. The first annual report under this subpart was due in September 2012 for the reporting year 2011. The EPA has included 8 industry segments under this subpart. Our oil production fields fall under the “Onshore Petroleum and Natural Gas Production” industry segment and our Riley Ridge facility falls under the “Onshore Natural Gas Processing” industry segment.

Under this subpart, the EPA requires operators to report emissions under each geological basin in which they operate. These basin boundaries have been identified on the Geologic Provinces Code Map published by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists. Currently, our operations fall under three geologic basins in the Gulf Coast region and three basins in the Rocky Mountain region. Denbury has been reporting under this subpart since 2011 for basins exceeding the reporting thresholds.

Under Subpart W, the EPA requires operators to report CO2, CH4 (methane) and N2O (nitrous oxide) emissions from various sources and processes listed under the subpart. These GHG emissions are converted to CO2 equivalent ("CO2e") emissions by using the respective Global Warming Potentials ("GWPs") for each pollutant. The GWPs published by the EPA in 2013 are listed in the table below.

Greenhouse Gases GWPs
CO2 1
CH4 25
N2O 298

The following are Denbury’s Scope 11 – GHG emissions and Vehicle Fuel Consumption emissions for 2017 and 2018 presented in metric tons (tonnes) or gallons (gal). These emissions coincide with emissions calculations using EPA’s GHG Subpart W reporting requirements and applicability as described above.2

1Scope 1 emissions are direct emissions from owned or controlled sources of a company.

2Denbury monitors and reports NOx, SOx, PM and VOC emissions as required by various air emissions permits across our operations. Our operations do not generate HFCs, PFCs or SF6 emissions and, therefore, we do not report them under EPA’s GHG Subpart W. GWPs for 2017 and 2018 were used to calculate CO2e.

3Emissions reported may differ slightly from prior year’s reporting due to internal auditing and EPA’s changes to the reporting rule.
