Exxon Mobil Corporation today announced estimated second quarter 2018 earnings of $4 billion, or $0.92 per share assuming dilution, compared with $3.4 billion a year earlier. Cash flow from operations and asset sales was $8.1 billion, including proceeds associated with asset sales of $307 million. During the quarter, the corporation distributed $3.5 billion in dividends to shareholders. Capital and exploration expenditures were $6.6 billion, up 69 percent from the prior year, reflecting key investments in Brazil, the U.S. Permian Basin and Indonesia.

Oil-equivalent production was 3.6 million barrels per day, down 7 percent from the second quarter of 2017. Excluding entitlement effects and divestments, liquids production increased as growth in the Permian and Bakken in the U.S. and Hebron in Canada more than offset decline and higher downtime driven by scheduled maintenance. Natural gas volumes decreased 10 percent, excluding entitlement effects and divestments, largely due to a continuing shift in U.S. unconventional development from dry gas to liquids and to downtime in Qatar, Australia, and Papua New Guinea.

“Key projects in Guyana, the U.S. Permian Basin, Brazil, Mozambique and Papua New Guinea are positioning us well to meet the objectives we outlined in our long-term earnings growth plans. The high quality of these resources, combined with our strengths in project execution and innovation, will generate strong value over time,” said Darren W. Woods, chairman and chief executive officer. “Second quarter results were primarily impacted by significant scheduled maintenance undertaken to support operational integrity. In addition, while we were pleased with the return of full production following the PNG earthquake, extended recoveries from first quarter operational incidents in the Downstream were disappointing. However, good progress was made during the second quarter in fully recovering from these incidents.”

Second Quarter 2018 Business Highlights

Upstream:

  • Crude prices strengthened in the second quarter, while natural gas prices were mixed.
  • U.S. tight oil growth in the Permian and Bakken continued, reaching over 250,000 oil-equivalent barrels per day in the second quarter, an increase of 30 percent from the same period last year. The Hebron field in Canada continued to exceed expectations, ramping up to 25,000 oil-equivalent barrels per day in the second quarter.
  • Natural gas volumes were impacted by lower seasonal demand in Europe, deliberate near-term shifting of investments in U.S. unconventionals from gas to liquids and downtime in LNG operations, notably in Qatar.
  • Production at Papua New Guinea returned to normal operations in April and reached record daily LNG production rates in June. Second quarter volume loss associated with the earthquake recovery was 17,000 oil-equivalent barrels per day.
  • Scheduled maintenance activities were undertaken to support operational integrity, largely in Canada at Syncrude, Cold Lake and Kearl, impacting volumes and expenses in second quarter.

Downstream:

  • Global refining margins strengthened during the quarter due to higher industry refinery maintenance activity and increased seasonal petroleum product demand.
  • Overall throughput and earnings were impacted by heavy turnaround and maintenance activities during the quarter. Planned turnarounds were successfully completed at the refineries in Saudi Arabia, Port-Jérȏme, France, Baytown and Beaumont, Texas, and Alberta, Canada. Unplanned maintenance, a majority of which was carried-in from the first quarter, was largely completed during the quarter.
  • Growth in higher-value sales of retail fuels in the U.S., Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, combined with record quarterly sales of Mobil 1 lubricants in the U.S. and China, resulted in improved earnings during the quarter.
  • Depreciation in the Euro and British pound relative to the U.S. dollar negatively impacted earnings.

Chemical:

  • ExxonMobil continued to make significant progress in growing the Chemical business. Second quarter sales were the highest since 2007, and new volumes in Singapore and the U.S. contributed more than 530,000 metric tons of sales during the quarter. This included an additional 145,000 metric tons of high-performance products as the company continued to strengthen its leading position in this market.
  • Chemical margins weakened during the quarter as higher feed and energy costs outpaced stronger realizations.

Strengthening the Portfolio

  • ExxonMobil announced its eighth oil discovery offshore Guyana at the Longtail-1 well, creating the potential for additional resource development in the southeast area of the Stabroek Block. ExxonMobil encountered approximately 256 feet (78 meters) of high-quality, oil-bearing sandstone.
  • The company continued to rapidly advance the Liza Phase 1 project with the start of development drilling offshore Guyana. Development drilling began in May for the first of 17 wells planned for Phase 1, laying the foundation for production startup in 2020. The company and its co-venturers have so far discovered estimated recoverable resources of more than 4 billion oil-equivalent barrels on the Stabroek Block.
  • ExxonMobil completed the purchase of half of Equinor ASA’s interest in the BM-S-8 block offshore Brazil, which contains part of the pre-salt Carcara oil field. Production from the field is expected to start in 2023-2024. The company also increased its holdings in Brazil’s pre-salt basins after winning the Uirapuru exploration block with co-venturers Equinor ASA and Petrogal Brasil SA during Brazil’s fourth pre-salt bid round. ExxonMobil now has interests in 25 blocks offshore Brazil.
  • Qatar Petroleum agreed to partner with ExxonMobil by acquiring a 30 percent interest in two ExxonMobil affiliates, ExxonMobil Exploration Argentina SRL and Mobil Argentina SA, which hold interests in the Vaca Muerta unconventional shale oil and gas plays in Neuquén Province, Argentina. This agreement expands the successful partnership with Qatar Petroleum, and underscores the commitment to develop Argentina’s resources to further support domestic production.
  • ExxonMobil and Eni SpA announced that marketing efforts are underway for the Rovuma LNG project, which will produce, liquefy and sell natural gas from the Area 4 block offshore Mozambique. The company is in active negotiations on binding sales and purchase agreements for Rovuma LNG.

Investing for Growth

  • The company started production of hydrogenated hydrocarbon resin and halobutyl rubber at its integrated manufacturing complex in Singapore. The new resins plant is the world’s largest with a capacity of 90,000 metric tons per year, and the new 140,000-metric-ton-per-year butyl plant will produce premium halobutyl rubber used by manufacturers for tires that better maintain inflation and improve fuel economy.
  • ExxonMobil acquired PT Federal Karyatama, one of Indonesia’s largest manufacturers and marketers of motorcycle lubricants, which expands the company’s position in an important international market. The acquisition includes the Federal Oil brand and a 700,000-barrel-per-year blending plant in Cilegon, Indonesia.
  • ExxonMobil and SABIC announced the creation of a new joint venture to advance development of the Gulf Coast Growth Ventures project, a 1.8-million-metric-ton-per-year ethane cracker currently planned for construction in San Patricio County, Texas. The facility will also include a monoethylene glycol unit and two polyethylene units. Construction of the project is pending completion of the environmental permitting process. The plant is expected to be operational in the 2021-2022 timeframe.
  • ExxonMobil and Plains All American Pipeline LP have signed a letter of intent to pursue a joint venture to construct a pipeline system to transport crude oil and condensate from multiple locations in the U.S. Permian Basin to the U.S. Gulf Coast. The proposed common carrier pipeline system would be designed to ship more than 1 million barrels of crude oil and condensate per day, providing a safe, efficient and cost effective option to transport ExxonMobil and other third-party production to market destinations in Texas.

Advancing Innovative Technologies and Products

  • ExxonMobil announced it is progressing a multi-billion dollar project at its integrated manufacturing facility in Singapore to expand lubricant basestocks production to meet growing demand. The company plans to apply proprietary technologies to convert heavy by-products to high-quality basestocks designed to help blenders achieve greater formulation flexibility and meet future lubricant performance expectations. Project startup is anticipated in 2023.
  • ExxonMobil announced greenhouse gas reduction measures that are expected to lead to significant improvements in emissions performance by 2020, including a 15 percent decrease in methane emissions and a 25 percent reduction in flaring compared with 2016. The company also announced its intention to improve its industry-leading energy efficiency in refining and chemical manufacturing facilities. Since 2000, ExxonMobil has spent more than $9 billion on lower-emission energy solutions such as cogeneration, flare reduction, energy efficiency, biofuels, carbon capture and storage and other technologies.

First Half 2018 Financial Updates

During the first half of 2018, Exxon Mobil Corporation purchased 5 million shares of its common stock for the treasury at a gross cost of $425 million. These shares were acquired to offset dilution in conjunction with the company’s benefit plans and programs. The corporation will continue to acquire shares to offset dilution in conjunction with its benefit plans and programs, but does not currently plan on making purchases to reduce shares outstanding.

ExxonMobil will discuss financial and operating results and other matters during a webcast at 8:30 a.m. Central Time on July 27, 2018. To listen to the event or access an archived replay, please visit www.exxonmobil.com .

Cautionary Statement

Outlooks, projections, goals, targets, descriptions of business plans and objectives, and other statements of future events or conditions in this release are forward-looking statements. Actual future results, including project plans, capacities, and timing; resource recoveries; earnings and volume growth; and emissions and flaring reductions could differ materially due to a number of factors. These include changes in supply and demand for oil, gas, and petrochemicals or other market conditions affecting the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries; reservoir performance; timely completion of new projects; the impact of fiscal and commercial terms and the outcome of commercial negotiations; changes in law, taxes, or government regulation and timely granting of governmental permits; war and other political or security disturbances; the actions of competitors; unforeseen technical or operating difficulties; unexpected technological developments; general economic conditions including the occurrence and duration of economic recessions; the results of research programs; and other factors discussed under the heading Factors Affecting Future Results on the Investors page of our website at www.exxonmobil.com and in Item 1A of ExxonMobil’s 2017 Form 10-K. We assume no duty to update these statements as of any future date.

Forward-looking statements in this release regarding future earnings refer to plans outlined at ExxonMobil’s Analysts’ Meeting held on March 7, 2018. The growth figures presented at that meeting are not forecasts of actual future results but were intended to help quantify future potential and goals of management plans and initiatives. See the complete March 7, 2018 presentation available in archive form (including the Cautionary Statement and Supplemental Information included with that presentation) on the Investors page of our website at www.exxonmobil.com for more detailed information. That material includes a description of the assumptions underlying these potential growth estimates including a flat real oil price of $60 per barrel, downstream and chemical margins consistent with 2017 levels, and future gas prices consistent with our internal company plans, as well as a reconciliation of adjusted 2017 earnings used as a baseline.

Frequently Used Terms and Non-GAAP Measures

This press release includes cash flow from operations and asset sales. Because of the regular nature of our asset management and divestment program, we believe it is useful for investors to consider proceeds associated with the sales of subsidiaries, property, plant and equipment, and sales and returns of investments together with cash provided by operating activities when evaluating cash available for investment in the business and financing activities. A reconciliation to net cash provided by operating activities is shown on page 8 and in Attachment V.

This press release also includes total taxes including sales-based taxes. This is a broader indicator of the total tax burden on the corporation’s products and earnings, including certain sales and value-added taxes imposed on and concurrent with revenue-producing transactions with customers and collected on behalf of governmental authorities (“sales-based taxes”). It combines “Income taxes” and “Total other taxes and duties” with sales-based taxes, which are reported net in the income statement. We believe it is useful for the corporation and its investors to understand the total tax burden imposed on the corporation’s products and earnings. A reconciliation to total taxes is shown as part of the Estimated Key Financial and Operating Data in Attachment I.

References to the resource base and other quantities of oil, natural gas or condensate may include amounts that are not yet classified as “proved reserves” under SEC definitions, but which we believe will likely be moved into the “proved reserves” category and produced in the future. The term “project” as used in this release can refer to a variety of different activities and does not necessarily have the same meaning as in any government payment transparency reports. Further information on ExxonMobil’s frequently used financial and operating measures and other terms including “Cash flow from operations and asset sales”, and “Total taxes including sales-based taxes” is contained under the heading “Frequently Used Terms” available through the “Investors” section of our website at exxonmobil.com.

Reference to Earnings

References to corporate earnings mean net income attributable to ExxonMobil (U.S. GAAP) from the consolidated income statement. Unless otherwise indicated, references to earnings, Upstream, Downstream, Chemical and Corporate and financing segment earnings, and earnings per share are ExxonMobil’s share after excluding amounts attributable to noncontrolling interests.

Exxon Mobil Corporation has numerous affiliates, many with names that include ExxonMobil, Exxon, Mobil, Esso, and XTO. For convenience and simplicity, those terms and terms such as corporation, company, our, we, and its are sometimes used as abbreviated references to specific affiliates or affiliate groups. Similarly, ExxonMobil has business relationships with thousands of customers, suppliers, governments, and others. For convenience and simplicity, words such as venture, joint venture, partnership, co-venturer, and partner are used to indicate business and other relationships involving common activities and interests, and those words may not indicate precise legal relationships.
