Newfield believes that sound corporate governance principles are critical to ensuring the trust of investors. We have an active and qualified board of directors. A majority (8 out of 9) of our directors are independent as defined by the NYSE. Our three primary board committees are comprised exclusively of independent directors. The following documents help outline our corporate governance policies.
We have established Newfield's Ethics Line so that investors, employees and other interested parties can anonymously report through a third party any practices thought to be in violation of our corporate governance policies. The Ethics Line also can be used to make concerns known to our non-management directors (those members of Newfield's Board of Directors who are not Newfield employees) on a direct and confidential basis. The Ethics Line can be accessed at www.newfieldexploration.ethicspoint.com or by clicking here.
