Chevron Reports Second Quarter Net Income of $5.7 Billion

August 4, 2014

Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) today reported earnings of $5.7 billion ($2.98 per share – diluted) for second quarter 2014, compared with $5.4 billion ($2.77 per share – diluted) in the 2013 second quarter.

Foreign currency effects decreased earnings in the 2014 quarter by $232 million, compared with an increase of $302 million a year earlier.

Sales and other operating revenues in second quarter 2014 were $56 billion, compared to $55 billion in the year-ago period.

“Our second quarter earnings and cash flow were solid,” said Chairman and CEO John Watson. “Current quarter earnings reflected stronger market conditions for crude oil, although some of these benefits were offset by lower production volumes as a result of planned maintenance activity at Tengizchevroil in Kazakhstan. Gains on asset sales also contributed to our results, as we completed important sales under our three-year divestment program.”

Worldwide net oil-equivalent production was 2.55 million barrels per day in second quarter 2014, down from 2.58 million barrels per day in the 2013 second quarter. Production increases from project ramp-ups in the United States, Nigeria, Brazil and Argentina were more than offset by price and other production entitlement effects in several locations, normal field declines, and maintenance-related downtime at Tengizchevroil in Kazakhstan.
