EXPLANATORY NOTE — DEREGISTRATION OF SECURITIES

This Post-Effective Amendment relates to the following Registration Statements on Form S-3 (collectively, the “Registration Statements”), originally filed by Noble Midstream Partners LP, a Delaware limited partnership (the “Partnership”), with the Securities and Exchange Commission:

 

   

Registration Statement No. 333-235652 on Form S-3, filed on December 20, 2019, as amended by Amendment No. 1 filed on January 16, 2020, as further amended by Amendment No. 2 filed on January 24, 2020, registering 12,077,295 common units representing limited partner interests of the Partnership (“Common Units”); and

 

   

Registration Statement No. 333-221253 on Form S-3, filed on November 1, 2017, registering Common Units up to a maximum offering price of $125,000,000.

On March 4, 2021, Chevron Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Parent”) and the indirect owner of approximately 62.4% of the total Common Units outstanding prior to completion of the Merger (as defined herein), caused its indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary NBL Midstream, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, to deliver a written consent approving the adoption of that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of March 4, 2021 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Parent, Cadmium Holdings Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (“Holdings”), Cadmium Merger Sub LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Holdings (“Merger Sub”), the Partnership and Noble Midstream GP LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and the general partner of the Partnership, and the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, including the Merger (as defined below), for and on behalf of the limited partners of the Partnership. At the Effective Time (as defined below) of the Merger, pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, each outstanding Common Unit, other than those held by Parent or any of its subsidiaries, was converted into the right to receive 0.1393 of a share of Parent’s common stock, par value $0.75, and Merger Sub merged with and into the Partnership (the “Merger”), with the Partnership continuing and surviving as an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent following the Merger.

The Merger became effective on May 11, 2021, upon the filing of the Certificate of Merger with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware (the “Effective Time”). In connection with the completion of the Merger, the Partnership terminated all offerings of securities pursuant to the Registration Statements. In accordance with undertakings made by the Partnership in the Registration Statements to remove from registration, by means of a post-effective amendment, any of the securities that had been registered for issuance that remain unsold at the termination of such offering, the Partnership hereby removes from registration all of such securities of the Partnership registered but unsold under the Registration Statements as of the Effective Time.
