Gaining knowledge about a company's debt and liabilities is a key component in understanding the risk of a company. An understanding of these factors will aid in the decision to invest, not to invest, or to stay invested in a company. There are many metrics involved in gaining knowledge about the debt of a company, but for this article, I will look at EOG Resources Inc.'s (EOG) total debt, total liabilities, debt ratios and WACC.

1. Total Debt = Long-Term Debt + Short-Term Debt

Total debt is the sum of long-term debt, which is debt that is due in one year or more, and short-term debt, which is any debt that is due within one year.

• 2008 - $1.860 billion + $37 million = $1.897 billion
• 2009 - $2.760 billion + $37 million = $2.797 billion
• 2010 - $5.003 billion + $220 million = $5.223 billion
• 2011 - $5.009 billion + $0 million = $5.009 billion
• 2012 TTM - $6.305 billion + $0 million = $6.305 billion
