HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX), an energy manufacturing and logistics company, announces third-quarter 2017 earnings of $823 million, compared with $550 million in the second quarter of 2017. Excluding special items, adjusted earnings were $858 million, compared with second-quarter adjusted earnings of $569 million.

“We operated well during the quarter while facing the challenges associated with Hurricane Harvey,” said Greg Garland, chairman and CEO of Phillips 66. “While the storm impacted our Gulf Coast operations, we delivered strong financial results from our diverse business portfolio. We are proud of how our employees responded during the storm. They assisted families, friends and neighbors and worked tirelessly to safeguard our assets and communities. Through their efforts, we were able to ensure business continuity and supply critical energy products to first responders and consumers.”

“During the quarter, we funded $367 million of capital expenditures and returned $817 million to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases,” added Garland. “Earlier this month we also announced a new $3 billion share repurchase program, increasing total authorizations to $12 billion since 2012. Prudently managing capital allocation and delivering shareholder returns remain fundamental to Phillips 66.”

Midstream earnings     $ 85       59   67       64
*Included in Transportation and NGL businesses.

Midstream's third-quarter earnings were $85 million, compared with $59 million in the second quarter of 2017. Midstream earnings in the third quarter of 2017 included a favorable settlement of $23 million, partially offset by hurricane-related costs of $3 million and pension settlement expense of $2 million. Second-quarter earnings included pension settlement expense of $5 million.

Transportation adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2017 was $98 million , an increase of $24 million from the second quarter. The increase reflects a full quarter of commercial operations of the Bakken Pipeline, as well as higher throughput volumes due to less planned refinery downtime.

NGL adjusted net income was break-even in the third quarter of 2017, compared with second-quarter adjusted net income of $14 million. The decrease mainly reflects hurricane impacts on fractionation and export volumes.

The company’s equity investment in DCP Midstream generated net income of $1 million in the third quarter, compared with $13 million in the prior quarter. This decrease primarily reflects the impact of rising NGL prices on forward hedges, as well as asset impairments of $6 million.

Chemicals

Olefins and Polyolefins (O&P) $ 105     179 137     179

Other     (6 )     (4 ) (6 )     (4 )
Chemicals     $ 121       196   153       196  

The Chemicals segment reflects Phillips 66's equity investment in Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC (CPChem). Chemicals' third-quarter earnings were $121 million, compared with $196 million in the second quarter of 2017. Chemicals' earnings in the third quarter of 2017 included hurricane-related costs of $32 million.

During the quarter, CPChem's O&P business contributed $137 million of adjusted earnings to the Chemicals segment. The $42 million decrease from the prior quarter was primarily due to lower margins and volumes. Global O&P utilization was 83 percent, reflecting hurricane-related downtime at U.S. Gulf Coast facilities. Second quarter utilization was 98 percent.

CPChem's SA&S business contributed $22 million of adjusted earnings in the third quarter, in line with the prior quarter, as lower margins were more than offset by higher equity earnings due to a reduction in unplanned downtime.

Refining

Earnings     Adjusted Earnings
Q3 2017     Q2 2017 Q3 2017     Q2 2017
Refining         $ 550       224   548       233

Refining's third-quarter earnings were $550 million, compared with $224 million in the second quarter of 2017. Refining's earnings in the third quarter of 2017 included favorable settlements of $18 million, mostly offset by pension settlement expense of $8 million and hurricane-related costs of $8 million. Second-quarter earnings included pension settlement expense of $22 million, partially offset by an insurance claim reimbursement of $13 million.

Refining's adjusted earnings were $548 million in the third quarter of 2017, compared with $233 million in the prior quarter. This increase was largely driven by higher distillate and gasoline margins, as the market crack spreads were up 41 percent and 24 percent, respectively. Realized margins for the quarter were $10.49 per barrel, compared with $8.44 per barrel in the second quarter. Phillips 66’s worldwide crude utilization rate was 98 percent, reflecting strong operations across the system and limited hurricane impacts to the company's Gulf Coast refineries. Pre-tax turnaround costs for the third quarter were $43 million, compared with second-quarter costs of $154 million. Clean product yield was 85 percent in the third quarter, unchanged from the second quarter.

Marketing and Specialties

Specialties       48       33   48       33
Marketing and Specialties       $ 208       214   211       218

Marketing and Specialties (M&S) third-quarter earnings were $208 million , compared with $214 million in the second quarter of 2017. M&S’s third-quarter earnings included pension settlement expense of $2 million and hurricane-related costs of $1 million. Second-quarter earnings included a charge of $4 million for pension settlement expense.

Adjusted earnings for Marketing and Other were $163 million in the third quarter of 2017, a decrease of $22 million from the prior quarter. The decrease was largely due to lower U.S. margins. Refined product exports in the third quarter were 179,000 barrels per day (BPD), unchanged from the prior quarter.

Phillips 66’s Specialties businesses generated earnings of $48 million during the third quarter. The $15 million increase from the prior quarter was mainly due to higher equity earnings from the Excel Paralubes joint venture, driven by higher utilization during the third quarter.

Corporate and Other’s third-quarter net costs were $141 million, in line with the prior quarter. Third quarter results included a $20 million charge for a legal settlement.

The $21 million decrease in adjusted net costs was primarily due to certain tax adjustments.

Financial Position, Liquidity and Return of Capital

Phillips 66 generated $401 million in cash from operations during the third quarter. Excluding working capital impacts, operating cash flow was $596 million. Cash from operations was reduced by pension plan contributions of $423 million.

During the quarter, Phillips 66 funded $367 million of capital expenditures and investments, and distributed $356 million in dividends and $461 million in share repurchases. The company ended the quarter with 507 million shares outstanding.

As of Sept. 30, 2017, cash and cash equivalents were $1.5 billion, and consolidated debt was $10.2 billion, including $2.3 billion at Phillips 66 Partners (PSXP). The company's consolidated debt-to-capital ratio and net-debt-to-capital ratio were 30 percent and 27 percent, respectively. Excluding PSXP, the debt-to-capital ratio was 26 percent and net-debt-to-capital ratio was 22 percent.

Strategic Update

In Midstream, the company continues to invest in the Beaumont Terminal to increase storage capacity and export capabilities. An additional 3.5 million barrels of crude storage is expected to be in service by the end of 2018. Expansion of the terminal's export facilities, from a current capacity of 400,000 BPD to 600,000 BPD, is on schedule for completion in the first quarter of 2018.

In October 2017, Phillips 66 contributed its 25 percent interest in the Bakken Pipeline and 100 percent interest in Merey Sweeny, L.P. (MSLP) to PSXP in a transaction valued at $2.4 billion, including $625 million of non-recourse Bakken Pipeline debt and $100 million of MSLP debt. Consideration for the transaction was $1.7 billion including cash, the Partnership’s assumption of certain Phillips 66 term loans, and $240 million of newly issued PSXP common and general partner units.

DCP Midstream is expanding the Sand Hills NGL Pipeline capacity from 280,000 BPD to 365,000 BPD, with an expected in-service date in the fourth quarter of 2017. In addition, DCP announced plans to further expand the line to approximately 450,000 BPD, with completion expected in the second half of 2018. Sand Hills is owned two-thirds by DCP and one-third by Phillips 66 Partners.

DCP continues to expand its footprint in the high-growth DJ basin through the construction of two gas processing plants. DCP also announced plans to jointly develop the Gulf Coast Express Pipeline Project , which would provide an outlet for increased natural gas production in the Permian Basin to markets along the Texas Gulf Coast.

CPChem’s U.S. Gulf Coast Petrochemicals Project, which consists of a world-scale ethane cracker and two polyethylene units, is nearing completion. During the third quarter, CPChem commissioned and successfully started up the new polyethylene units in Old Ocean, Texas. Due to impacts from Hurricane Harvey, commissioning of the ethane cracker at the Cedar Bayou facility in Baytown, Texas, is now expected to begin in the first quarter of 2018. The Project will increase CPChem’s global ethylene and polyethylene capacity by approximately one-third.

In Refining, the company is progressing return projects to improve clean product yields. A diesel recovery project at the Ponca City Refinery is expected to start up in the fourth quarter of 2017. The company is modernizing fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) units at both the Bayway and Wood River refineries with an anticipated completion during the first half of 2018.

Phillips 66 capital expenditures and investments for 2017 are expected to be approximately $2 billion, a reduction from the original budget of $2.7 billion. This decrease is primarily due to deferral of a final investment decision on incremental fractionation capacity. Capital expenditures and investments for 2018 are expected to be between $2 billion and $3 billion, with additional information to be provided in December 2017.

*We generally tax effect taxable U.S.-based special items using a combined federal and state statutory income tax rate of approximately 38 percent. Taxable special items attributable to foreign locations likewise use a local statutory income tax rate. Nontaxable events reflect zero income tax. These events include, but are not limited to, most goodwill impairments, transactions legislatively exempt from income tax, transactions related to entities for which we have made an assertion that the undistributed earnings are permanently reinvested, or transactions occurring in jurisdictions with a valuation allowance.
†Weighted-average diluted shares outstanding and income allocated to participating securities, if applicable, in the adjusted earnings per share calculation are the same as those used in the GAAP diluted earnings per share calculation.
