Hedging

September 3, 2014

Zargon uses hedges to help fund dividends and capital programs during periods of lower commodity prices. Our policies allow for the forward sale of:

  • up to a 70 percent maximum of estimated oil production volumes for the next 12 months. Then 60 percent for the next 12 months and 50 percent for the final 6 month period. 
  • not to exceed a 30-month period.
