Noble Energy has continued to increase production and said it plans to sell more oil in the fourth quarter of the year.
The rise is higher than previously expected, up from 405,000 barrels to 415,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
Output has been boosted from areas including the Eagle Ford basin.
Gary Willingham, the company’s executive vice president of operations, said: “We are finishing 2015 with tremendous operating momentum and performance across the business.
“The company’s 2015 capital budget remains unchanged and fourth quarter capital will be the lowest quarterly spend of the year.
“We’ve positioned the company to operate within cash flow while still being able to deliver modest pro-forma annual volume growth in 2016.”
Last month, Noble Energy said it was going to reduce its headcount by around 180 positions as it looks to downsize its workforce during the oil price decline.
