Item 7.01  Regulation FD Disclosure.

I. Updated Barnett Shale Acreage Position

     To date, EOG has leased approximately 325,000 net acres in
the non-core Barnett Shale area located in North Central Texas
(with the core area defined primarily as western Denton and
eastern Wise counties).  While EOG has continued to drill
successful wells in the Barnett Shale through the use of 3-D
seismic and horizontal drilling techniques, significant
production growth or reserve additions are not anticipated from
the Barnett Shale until 2005 and beyond.

II.  Production Growth Targets for 2004, 2005 and 2006

     EOG is raising its previously announced 2004 total company
production growth target from 8 percent to 9 percent.  The
individual growth targets for 2004, 2005 and 2006 are now 9
percent, 14 percent and 8 percent, respectively.

III. Capital Expenditure Budget

     For 2005, EOG's preliminary estimated capital expenditure
budget is approximately $1.4 billion, excluding acquisitions.

IV. Forward-Looking Statements

     This document includes 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 are not guarantees of performance.  Although EOG
believes its expectations reflected in forward-looking statements
are based on reasonable assumptions, no assurance can be given
that these expectations will be achieved.  Important factors that
could cause actual results to differ materially from the
expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements include,
among others: the timing and extent of changes in commodity
prices for crude oil, natural gas and related products, foreign
currency exchange rates and interest rates; the timing and impact
of liquefied natural gas imports and changes in demand or prices
for ammonia or methanol; the extent and effect of any hedging
activities engaged in by EOG; the extent of EOG's success in
discovering, developing, marketing and producing reserves and in
acquiring oil and gas properties; the accuracy of reserve
estimates, which by their nature involve the exercise of
professional judgment and may therefore be imprecise; the
availability and cost of drilling rigs, experienced drilling
crews and tubular steel; the availability of pipeline
transportation capacity; the extent to which EOG can replicate on
its other Barnett Shale acreage the results of its most recent
Barnett Shale wells; the results of wells yet to be drilled that
are necessary to test whether substantial Barnett Shale acreage
positions in Erath, Somervell, Hood, Jack, Palo Pinto and Hill
Counties, Texas, contain suitable drilling prospects; whether EOG
is successful in its efforts to more densely develop its acreage
in the Barnett Shale and other production areas; political
developments around the world; acts of war and terrorism and
responses to these acts; and financial market conditions.  In
light of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions, the events
anticipated by EOG's forward-looking statements might not occur.
EOG undertakes no obligations to update or revise its forward-
looking statements, whether as a result of new information,
future events or otherwise.


     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act
of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed
on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
