Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On August 2, 2018, Centennial Resource Production, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“CRP”) and a subsidiary of Centennial Resource Development, Inc., a Delaware corporation, entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with BP Products North America Inc. (“BP”), pursuant to which CRP agreed to sell specified quantities of crude oil to BP at the prices listed in the Purchase Agreement. Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, CRP will begin delivering 20,000 barrels of crude oil per day to BP starting on January 1, 2019. Upon the earlier of the in-service date of the pipeline system that is currently being constructed by Gray Oak Pipeline, LLC or June 1, 2020 (such earlier date, the “Period 2 Commencement Date”), CRP’s daily delivery requirement will increase to 30,000 barrels of crude oil per day. The Purchase Agreement contains certain allowances for deviations in the volume of crude oil that CRP deliveries to BP in a given month. The Purchase Agreement has a term of five years from the Period 2 Commencement Date.
Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, BP will purchase crude oil delivered by CRP prior to the Period 2 Commencement Date at a per-barrel price that is based on the arithmetic average of the daily settlement price for “Light Sweet Crude Oil” Prompt Month future contracts reported by the New York Mercantile Exchange over the one-month period, as adjusted for certain transportation costs, a differential and other adjustments specified in the Purchase Agreement. Following the Period 2 Commencement Date, BP will purchase crude oil delivered by CRP at a per-barrel price that is based on the arithmetic average of the daily settlement price for Brent Prompt Month future contracts reported by the Intercontinental Exchange over the one-month period, as adjusted for certain transportation costs, a differential and other adjustments specified in the Purchase Agreement.
The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Exhibit 10.1

CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED


Purchase and Sale Agreement

This Purchase and Sale Agreement (the “Agreement”) is made entered into and effective as of August 2, 2018, by Centennial Resource Production, LLC (“Producer” or “Seller”), and BP Products North America Inc., a Maryland corporation (“BP” or “Buyer”). Producer and BP are individually referred to as “Party” and jointly as “Parties”, with reference to the following facts:

A.
Producer produces Crude Oil (as defined below) in the Delaware Basin.

B.
Producer wishes to sell and deliver, and BP wishes to buy and accept, Crude Oil on the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

C.
Producer and Oryx Southern Delaware Oil Gathering and Transport LLC (the “Oryx Pipeline”) are parties to that certain Transportation and Gathering Services Agreement, dated as of December 15, 2015 (the “TGSA”).

D.
The Parties intend that in the event of reductions in Producer’s production of Crude Oil causes a shortfall in the Crude Oil delivered during Period 2 hereunder, Producer will deliver crude oil from other sources as described below.

1.
Purchase and Sale

(a)
During the Term of this Agreement, Producer will sell, and BP will purchase, Crude Oil on the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

(b)
Producer shall sell and deliver, and BP shall purchase and accept, a quantity Crude oil as set forth below:

(i)
During each month of Period 1, twenty thousand barrels per day (20,000 bpd) of Producer’s Crude Oil production on the Oryx Pipeline at the Delivery Point times the number of days in each month, plus or minus one thousand barrels per day (1,000 bpd) on average over the course of such month (“Period 1 Monthly Volume”). “Period 1” will commence January 1, 2019 and continue until the commencement of Period 2.

(ii)
During each month of Period 2, thirty thousand barrels per day (30,000 bpd) of Producer’s Crude Oil production on the Oryx Pipeline at the Delivery Point times the number of days in each month, plus or minus an allowance of one thousand barrels per day (1,000 bpd) times the number of days in each month (“Period 2 Monthly Volume”). As used herein, “Delivery Point” is any valid Origin Point, as defined in the TGSA and as nominated for delivery by BP. To the extent Producer cannot deliver a sufficient quantity of Crude Oil at the Delivery Point such that the Period 2 Monthly Volume will not be met during Month M (after taking into account the allowance referenced in the prior sentence), then during


The use of the following notation in this Exhibit indicates that a confidential portion has been omitted pursuant to a request for confidential treatment and the omitted material has been separately provided to the Securities and Exchange Commission: [***]




the term of the shortfall Producer shall be obligated to deliver replacement barrels equal to the shortfall (such replacement barrels, “Replacement Crude Oil”). Producer shall first seek to use its existing capacity on the Oryx Pipeline under the TGSA to deliver the Replacement Crude Oil at any of the Destination Points, as defined in the TGSA, or if Producer is unable to deliver at any of the Destination Points using its existing capacity on the Oryx Pipeline, then Producer may, subject to the pricing in Section 2(c), deliver the Replacement Crude Oil at any of the Destination Points by some other method or, subject to the pricing in Section 2(c), deliver the Replacement Crude Oil at Plains Midland or other mutually agreeable delivery points (such delivery points referenced in this sentence, the “Alternate Delivery Points”). For example, if Producer delivered 850,000 barrels of its Crude Oil production to BP at the Delivery Point in June 2020, Producer would be required to deliver a minimum of 20,000 barrels of Replacement Crude Oil to BP for such month [(30,000 * 30) – (1,000 * 30) – 850,000 = 20,000] at an Alternate Delivery Point. “Period 2” will commence upon the earlier of the in-service date of Gray Oak Pipeline or June 1, 2020, and continue for a further five (5) years from such commencement date.

Title and risk of loss to the Crude Oil and/or the Replacement Crude Oil shall pass at the Delivery Point or Alternate Delivery Point, as applicable.

(iii)
Grade and Crude Oil Type: The Crude Oil shall be Midland Sweet West Texas Intermediate type crude oil with a reference gravity of <45 API (“WTI”) (WTI being referred to herein as “Crude Oil”). The Crude Oil shall meet the quality specifications set forth in Oryx Pipeline’s FERC and Texas RRC Tariffs Governing the Transportation and Handling of Crude Petroleum Transported by Pipeline (together, the “Pipeline Tariff”) as in effect from time to time.

(iv)
Forecasts and Nominations: Producer shall provide to BP on or before the twentieth (20th) day of the calendar month two months prior to Month M (“Month M-2”) a forecast of the Crude Oil it will deliver in Month M. Producer shall provide BP on or before the fifteenth (15th) day of the calendar month preceding Month M (“Month M-1”) the volume of Crude Oil which it will deliver in Month M (the “Confirmed Quantity”). If, during Period 2, based on the Confirmed Quantity provided, Producer will need to deliver Replacement Crude Oil, then Producer will also inform BP of the volume of Replacement Crude Oil to be delivered and the Alternate Delivery Point proposed. If the proposed Alternate Delivery Point is not one of the Destination Points and BP does not accept the proposed Alternate Delivery Point, BP will promptly notify Producer of such non-acceptance of the proposed Alternate Delivery Point, and BP will cooperate with Producer to determine an acceptable Alternate Delivery Point. Producer will promptly notify BP if Producer has reason to believe that the amount it will actually deliver is materially different than the Confirmed Quantity, or if there is a

2

material change to the volume at a delivery point whether or not the overall volume delivered will change.

2.
Price and Payment. For each barrel of Crude Oil delivered by Producer to BP, BP agrees to pay Producer the amounts specified below:

(a)
During Period 1: “Cal NYMEX” plus “Argus Diff to CMA” plus “Argus WTI Midland Differential” plus “Midland Fixed Differential” minus “Oryx Costs”, if applicable, as such terms are defined in this section below.

(b)
During Period 2: “Cal ICE Brent” plus “Brent Roll” plus “Brent Differential” minus “Oryx Costs”, if applicable, as such terms are defined in this section below.

Subject to any modification under a pricing amendment, the price per barrel of Crude Oil would be as determined by the above formulas. The formula terms have the meanings given below:

“Month M” means month of delivery.
“Month M-1” means the calendar month preceding Month M.
“Month M-2” means the calendar month 2 months prior to Month M.
“Cal ICE Brent” means the arithmetic average of the settlement prices, excluding the settlement price on the last pricing day, for the ICE Brent financial contract for the month of delivery, excluding weekends and holidays.
“Cal NYMEX” means the arithmetic average of the settlement prices for Light Sweet Crude Oil Futures Contract (WTI) on the New York Mercantile Exchange ("NYMEX") for each day of the month of the delivery, excluding weekends and holidays.
“Argus Diff to CMA” means the weighted average of the Diff to CMA Nymex as published by Petroleum Argus Daily Crude Reports from the 26th day of "Month M -2" and including the 25th day of "Month M-1" (excluding weekends and holidays).
“Argus WTI Midland Differential” means the weighted average of the Midland trade differential as published by Petroleum Argus Daily Crude Reports from the 26th day of "Month M -2" and including the 25th day of "Month M-1" (excluding weekends and holidays).

3
The use of the following notation in this Exhibit indicates that a confidential portion has been omitted pursuant to a request for confidential treatment and the omitted material has been separately provided to the Securities and Exchange Commission: [***]





“Brent Roll” means the arithmetic average of the settlement quote(s) for Cal ICE Brent (second traded contract month) of the pricing period in Month M, less the arithmetic average of the settlement quote(s) for Cal ICE Brent (first traded contract month) of the pricing period in Month M. An example of how Brent Roll may be calculated is set forth on Exhibit C for illustrative purposes only.

“Brent Differential” of [***] per net barrel.
“Midland Fixed Differential” of [***] per net barrel.
“Oryx Costs” means the actual transportations costs and fees associated with moving Crude Oil on the Oryx Pipeline pursuant to the Oryx Pipeline tariff then currently in effect. For Replacement Crude Oil, the Oryx Costs shall equal $0.
If an index is not published on a pricing day, the remaining days in the relevant month will be used to establish pricing. In the event of publication disruption for more than seven (7) normal pricing days in a month, the parties shall agree upon an alternate price index. If they are unable to agree, the matter shall be resolved by arbitration. Short term disruptions would be addressed through the use of other pricing days.    
(c)
For any Replacement Crude Oil delivered to an Alternate Delivery Point, should BP incur any additional actual, verifiable costs for transportation, pump-over, storage, or any penalty(ies), solely because the Replacement Crude Oil is delivered by Producer to BP at the applicable Alternate Delivery Point, such costs will be passed through to Producer as a reduction to the amounts payable to Producer by BP pursuant to Section 2. Price and Payment., above.

(d)
Pricing Amendment. Producer may, from time to time, request that BP provide quotes to change one or more components of the Pricing Formula (each a “Pricing Amendment”). In its request, Producer will indicate (i) the commencement date for which the Pricing Amendment would be effective, (ii) the period during which the Pricing Amendment would apply, which period shall not be for less than three (3) consecutive months, (iii) the type of Pricing Amendment requested (i.e. floor, ceiling, fixed, alternate index), and (iv) the volumes for which such Pricing Amendment would apply (“Pricing Amendment Quantity”), which, together with all other Pricing Amendments then in effect, may be up to but not in excess of one hundred percent (100%) of the volume committed pursuant to this Agreement (i.e. 20,000 barrels per day during Period 1 and 30,000 barrels per day during Period 2). Within ten (10) days after receipt of Producer’s request, BP shall provide to Producer the requested quote(s), and Producer shall accept or reject the quote(s) within three (3) business days. If Producer fails to respond within three (3) business days, the quote(s) shall be deemed to have been rejected for purposes of this Agreement. If the Parties agree on a Pricing Amendment, the Pricing Formula will be

4

amended in the manner and for the period specified therein and evidenced by a writing signed by the Parties. For the avoidance of doubt, once a Pricing Amendment is entered into, the Pricing Amendment Quantity associated with such Pricing Amendment would be fixed for the period of the Pricing Amendment. If, due to a Pricing Amendment there are different prices for tiers of Crude Oil, and there is a shortfall in delivery or receipts, then the Pricing Amendment Quantity will be considered to have been delivered or received first.     

(e)
Payment is due by the twentieth (20th) of the month following the month of delivery.

Seller further warrants that the crude oil delivered shall not be contaminated by chemicals foreign to virgin crude oil including, but not limited to chlorinated and/or oxygenated hydrocarbons and lead. Buyer shall have the right, without prejudice to any other remedy available to Buyer, to reject and return to Seller any quantities of crude oil which are found to be so contaminated, even after delivery to Buyer.
C.    Rules and Regulations: The terms, provisions and activities undertaken pursuant to this Agreement shall be subject to all applicable laws, orders and regulations of all governmental authorities. If at any time a provision hereof violates any such applicable laws, orders or regulations, such provision shall be voided and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in full force and effect unless terminated by either party upon giving written notice to the other party hereto. If applicable, the parties hereto agree to comply with all provisions (as amended) of the Equal Opportunity Clause prescribed in 41 C.F.R. 60-1.4; the Affirmative Action Clause for disabled veterans and veterans of the Vietnam Era prescribed in 41 C.F.R. 60-250.4; the Affirmative Action Clause for Handicapped Workers prescribed in 41 C.F.R. 60-741.4; 48 C.F.R.

E.    Force Majeure: Except for payment due hereunder, either party hereto shall be relieved from liability for failure to perform hereunder for the duration and to the extent such failure is occasioned by war, riots, insurrections, fire, explosions, sabotage, strikes, and other labor or industrial disturbances, acts of God or the elements, governmental laws, regulations, or requests, acts in furtherance of the International Energy Program, disruption or breakdown of production or transportation facilities, delays of pipeline carrier in receiving and delivering crude oil tendered, or by any other cause, whether similar or not, reasonably beyond the control of such party. Any such failures to perform shall be remedied with all reasonable dispatch, but neither party shall be required to supply substitute quantities from other sources of supply. Failure to perform due to events of Force Majeure shall not extend the terms of this Agreement.
Notwithstanding the above, and in the event that the Agreement is an associated purchase/sale, or exchange of crude oil, the parties shall have the rights and obligations described below in the circumstances described below:
    (1)    If, because of Force Majeure, the party declaring Force Majeure (the "Declaring Party") is unable to deliver part or all of the quantity of crude oil which the Declaring Party is obligated to deliver under the Agreement or associated contract, the other party (the "Exchange Partner") shall have the right but not the obligation to reduce its deliveries of crude oil under the same Agreement or associated contract by an amount not to exceed the number of barrels of crude oil that the Declaring Party fails to deliver.
(2)    If, because of Force Majeure, the Declaring Party is unable to take delivery of part or all of the quantity of crude oil to be delivered by the Exchange Partner under the Agreement or associated contract, the Exchange Partner shall have the right but not the obligation to reduce its receipts of crude oil under the same Agreement or associated contract by an amount not to exceed the number of barrels of crude oil that the Declaring Party fails to take delivery of.
F.    Payment: Unless otherwise specified in the Special Provisions of this Agreement, Buyer agrees to make payment against Seller's invoice for the crude oil purchased hereunder to a bank designated by Seller in U.S. dollars by telegraphic transfer in immediately available funds. Unless otherwise specified in the Special Provisions of this Agreement, payment will be due on or before the 20th of the month following the month of delivery. If payment due date is on a Saturday or New York bank holiday other than Monday, payment shall be due on the preceding New York banking day. If payment due date is on a Sunday or a Monday New York bank holiday, payment shall be due on the succeeding New York banking day.
Payment shall be deemed to be made on the date good funds are credited to Seller's account at Seller's designated bank.
In the event that Buyer fails to make any payment when due, Seller shall have the right to charge interest on the amount of the overdue payment at a per annum rate which shall be two percentage points higher than the published prime lending rate of Morgan Guaranty Trust Company of New York on the date payment was due, but not to exceed the maximum rate permitted by law.
G.    Financial Responsibility: Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, should Seller reasonably believe it necessary to assure payment, Seller may at any time require, by written notice to Buyer, advance cash payment or satisfactory security in the form of a Letter or Letters of Credit at Buyer's expense in a form and from a bank acceptable to Seller to cover any or all deliveries of crude oil. If Buyer does not provide the Letter of Credit on or before the date specified in Seller's notice under this section, Seller or Buyer may terminate this Agreement forthwith. However, if a Letter of Credit is required under the Special Provisions of this Agreement and Buyer does not provide same, then Seller only may terminate this Agreement forthwith. In no event shall Seller be obligated to schedule or

A-2
The use of the following notation in this Exhibit indicates that a confidential portion has been omitted pursuant to a request for confidential treatment and the omitted material has been separately provided to the Securities and Exchange Commission: [***]




complete delivery of the crude oil until said Letter of Credit is found acceptable to Seller.     Each party may offset any payments or deliveries due to the other party under this or any other agreement between the parties.
If a party to this Agreement (the "Defaulting Party") should (1) become the subject of bankruptcy or other insolvency proceedings, or proceedings for the appointment of a receiver, trustee, or similar official, (2) become generally unable to pay its debts as they become due, or (3) make a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, the other party to this Agreement may withhold shipments without notice.
H.    Liquidation:
(1)    Right to Liquidate. At any time after the occurrence of one or more of the events described in the third paragraph of Section G, Financial Responsibility, the other party to the Agreement (the "Liquidating Party") shall have the right, at its sole discretion, to liquidate this Agreement by terminating this Agreement. Upon termination, the parties shall have no further rights or obligations with respect to this Agreement, except for the payment of the amount(s) (the "Settlement Amount" or "Settlement Amounts") determined as provided in Paragraph (3) of this section.
(2)    Multiple Deliveries. If this Agreement provides for multiple deliveries of one or more types of crude oil in the same or different
delivery months, or for the purchase or exchange of crude oil by the parties, all deliveries under this Agreement to the same party at the same delivery location during a particular delivery month shall be considered a single commodity transaction ("Commodity Transaction") for the purpose of determining the Settlement Amount(s). If the Liquidating Party elects to liquidate this Agreement, the Liquidating Party must terminate all Commodity Transactions under this Agreement.
(3)    Settlement Amount. With respect to each terminated Commodity Transaction, the Settlement Amount shall be equal to the contract quantity of crude oil, multiplied by the difference between the contract price per barrel specified in this Agreement (the "Contract Price") and the market price per barrel of crude oil on the date the Liquidating Party terminates this Agreement (the "Market Price"). If the Market Price exceeds the Contract Price in a Commodity Transaction, the selling party shall pay the Settlement Amount to the buying party. If the Market Price is less than the Contract Price in a Commodity Transaction, the buying party shall pay the Settlement Amount to the selling party. If the Market Price is equal to the Contract Price in a Commodity Transaction, no Settlement Amount shall be due.
(4)    Termination Date. For the purpose of determining the Settlement Amount, the date on which the Liquidating Party terminates this Agreement shall be deemed to be (a) the date on which the Liquidating Party sends written notice of termination to the Defaulting Party, if such notice of termination is sent by telex or facsimile transaction; or (b) the date on which the Defaulting Party receives written notice of termination from the Liquidating Party, if such notice of termination is given by United States mail or a private mail delivery service.
(5)    Market Price.

K.    Delivery, Title, and Risk of Loss: Delivery, title, and risk of loss of the crude oil delivered hereunder shall pass from Seller to Buyer as follows:     For lease delivery locations, delivery of the crude oil to the Buyer shall be effected as the crude oil passes the last permanent delivery flange and/or meter connecting the Seller's lease/unit storage tanks or processing facilities to the Buyer's carrier. Title to and risk of loss of the crude oil shall pass from Seller to Buyer at the point of delivery.
For delivery locations other than lease/unit delivery locations, delivery of the crude oil to the Buyer shall be effected as the crude oil passes the last permanent delivery flange and/or meter connecting the delivery facility designated by the Seller to the Buyer's carrier. If delivery is by in-line transfer, delivery of the crude oil to the Buyer shall be effected at the particular pipeline facility designated in this Agreement. Title to and risk of loss of the crude oil shall pass from the Seller to the Buyer upon delivery.
L.    Term: Unless otherwise specified in the Special Provisions, delivery months begin at 7:00 a.m. on the first day of the calendar month and end at 7:00 a.m. on the first day of the following calendar month.

Volume and gravity shall be corrected to 60 degrees Fahrenheit by use of the appropriate tables from API MPMS Ch. 11.1/ ASTM D1250 in its latest revision. The crude oil delivered hereunder shall be marketable and acceptable in the applicable common or segregated stream of the carriers involved but not to exceed 1% S&W. A full deduction for all free water and S&W content shall be made according to S&W methodologies from API MPMS Ch. 10 as agreed to by the Parties. Either party shall have the right to have a representative present while gauging, testing, measuring, and calibrating equipment.

It is the intent of the parties that during Period 2, Producer is obligated to acquire replacement barrels from third parties and to supply them under this Agreement in order to compensate for any reduction in its own production or the production of its affiliates solely to the extent such reduction arises due to items within Producer’s control. During Period 1, BP shall not be entitled to declare Force Majeure as a result of a shutdown of a pipeline downstream of the Oryx Pipeline as long as Oryx Pipeline has a functioning pipe outlet for all of its volume.

Amend part (a) of H(4)(a) to include email as a possible means for delivery.

3.
Delete the last sentence and insert as additional language to Section H(5), the following sentence: “Buyer and Seller hereby agree that if Platts does not report prices for the crude oil being sold under this Agreement, Buyer and Seller shall use any other widely accepted, published price to determine the Market Price of such crude; in the event no other widely accepted, published price is available to determine the Market Price, Buyer and Seller shall mutually agree on a mechanism whereby the Market Price can be determined for purposes of this Section H(5).”

Any assignment not made in accordance with the terms of this Section shall be void.

Notwithstanding the previous paragraph, the Seller may without the Buyer’s consent assign all or a portion of its rights to receive and obtain payment under the Agreement in connection with any finance, securitization or bank funding arrangements, always providing such assignment does not contravene any applicable law, regulation or decree binding upon the Buyer or the Buyer’s then current account opening procedures.

Where applicable law or regulation imposes the obligation to collect such indirect taxes upon the Seller, Buyer shall promptly reimburse Seller for the amount of such indirect taxes, less any applicable allowances, unless Buyer, in advance, has provided Seller with documentation of applicable licenses or exemption certificates. Buyer’s obligation to pay applicable indirect taxes extends to reimbursement of Seller for any indirect taxes that Seller must pay due to subsequent discovery of taxability or under audit by any taxing authority. Seller’s right to require reimbursement of indirect taxes is not subject to the ninety (90) day limit for other claims under this Agreement, and Seller may make a claim for reimbursement at any time until the expiration of the relevant statute of limitations.

(2)
The Seller’s responsibilities: The amount of any indirect taxes, duties, imposts, fees, charges and dues of every description imposed or levied by any governmental, local or Port authority on the crude oil supplied hereunder, in respect of any stage prior to risk in such crude oil passing to the Buyer shall be for the Seller's account. However, Buyer shall reimburse Seller for any payments of New York Motor Fuel Excise Tax, Tennessee Fuel tax, or any similar motor fuel and sales/use taxes that are prepaid by the Seller but are to be passed on to the Buyer in accordance with industry practice.

(3)
As used in this Agreement the term "indirect taxes" includes, but is not limited to: federal, state or local excise taxes, sales and use taxes, ad valorem taxes, motor fuel taxes, gross receipts taxes, franchises taxes, environmental taxes and also includes types of indirect taxes assessed in any foreign country.

(4)
Upon Seller's request or upon any change in registration or exemption status in any taxing jurisdiction where Buyer conducts business, Buyer shall furnish Seller with the appropriate state registration number(s), its federal employer identification number or amended exemption certificates. Buyer shall ensure that Seller receives these notifications within thirty (30) days of such request or change in registration or exemption status. Seller will invoice Buyer for applicable taxes if Buyer fails to comply with this notification requirement.

(5)
When one Party makes payments to be reimbursed by the other Party, the paying Party shall use its best efforts to verify the correctness of the charges and to pay only the minimum amount due. There shall be no reimbursement for penalties or interest which are incurred as the result of the paying Party’s negligence. If applicable, federal oil spill tax may be billed as a separate line item on the invoice.
