  • Generated record Midstream net income from higher throughputs

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX), a diversified energy manufacturing and logistics company, announces third-quarter 2018 earnings of $1.5 billion, compared with $1.3 billion in the second quarter of 2018. Excluding special items of $36 million in the third quarter, adjusted earnings were $1.5 billion, compared with second-quarter adjusted earnings of $1.3 billion.

“We demonstrated the value of our integrated portfolio, delivering strong earnings and advancing strategic growth projects in the third quarter,” said Greg Garland, chairman and CEO of Phillips 66. “In the Central Corridor, Refining and Midstream ran at record levels, capturing favorable margins. During the quarter, we began construction of two new fractionators and additional storage at the Sweeny Hub, and we approved a new project to further expand crude oil storage at the Beaumont Terminal. The Gray Oak Pipeline project continues to progress toward a late-2019 completion, with 900,000 barrels per day of crude oil capacity.”

“Over the last six years, we have repurchased or exchanged nearly 30 percent of our initial shares outstanding, contributing to record adjusted earnings per share this quarter. We continued our commitment to shareholder distributions, returning $775 million through dividends and share repurchases in the third quarter and $5.2 billion for the year. We believe strong shareholder distributions remain fundamental to disciplined capital allocation.”

Midstream

Q3 2018     Q2 2018 Q3 2018     Q2 2018
Transportation $ 175     137 175     137

DCP Midstream       22     15 22     15
Midstream       $ 240     202 261     202
 

Midstream third-quarter net income was $240 million, compared with $202 million in the second quarter of 2018. Midstream results in the third quarter of 2018 included $21 million in expenses related to claims and pension settlement.

Transportation third-quarter adjusted net income of $175 million was $38 million higher than second-quarter adjusted net income of $137 million, mainly reflecting higher volumes and improved tariff and storage rates, as well as lower operating costs.

NGL and Other adjusted net income for the third quarter was $64 million, a $14 million increase from the second quarter, primarily due to increased volumes on the Sand Hills and Southern Hills pipelines, as well as propane and butane trading activity.

The company’s equity investment in DCP Midstream generated adjusted net income of $22 million in the third quarter, compared with $15 million in the second quarter. The increase reflects higher pipeline volumes and natural gas liquids (NGL) prices, as well as improved hedging results.

Chemicals

      Millions of Dollars
Net Income       Adjusted Net Income
Q3 2018     Q2 2018 Q3 2018     Q2 2018
Olefins and Polyolefins (O&P) $ 177     247 177     247

The Chemicals segment reflects Phillips 66's equity investment in Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC (CPChem). Chemicals' third-quarter net income was $210 million, compared with $262 million in the second quarter of 2018.

CPChem's O&P business contributed $177 million of adjusted net income in the third quarter of 2018, compared with $247 million in the second quarter. The decrease reflects a decline in margins, largely due to higher feedstock costs, partially offset by higher polyethylene sales volumes. Domestic polyethylene units ran at 96 percent utilization in the third quarter, while global O&P utilization was 91 percent.

CPChem's SA&S business contributed $41 million of adjusted net income in the third quarter of 2018, an increase of $9 million from the prior quarter. The increase primarily reflects improved margins.

The $9 million decrease in Other adjusted net costs in the third quarter mainly reflects the gain on an asset sale.

Refining

      Millions of Dollars

Q3 2018     Q2 2018 Q3 2018     Q2 2018
Refining       $ 936     910 959     911
       

Refining third-quarter net income was $936 million, compared with $910 million in the second quarter of 2018. Refining results in the third quarter of 2018 included pension settlement expense of $24 million.

Refining adjusted net income was $959 million in the third quarter of 2018, compared with $911 million in the second quarter of 2018. The increase was largely driven by higher realized refining margins in the Central Corridor, partially offset by declines in realized margins in the Gulf Coast and West Coast regions. Central Corridor refineries benefited from a wider WTI-WCS crude differential and ran at 108 percent utilization during the third quarter. The Gulf Coast region was impacted by narrowing heavy crude differentials and unplanned downtime. In the West Coast region, results were impacted by declining gasoline crack spreads.

Phillips 66’s worldwide crude utilization rate was 93 percent, down from 100 percent in the prior quarter. Pre-tax turnaround costs for the third quarter were $55 million, compared with second-quarter costs of $60 million. Clean product yield was 84 percent in the third quarter.

Marketing and Specialties

Marketing and Other $ 271     187 243     145
Specialties       47     50 47     50
Marketing and Specialties       $ 318     237 290     195
 

Marketing and Specialties (M&S) third-quarter net income was $318 million, compared with $237 million in the second quarter of 2018. M&S results benefited from biodiesel blender tax credits of $33 million and $42 million in the third and second quarters of 2018, respectively. Third-quarter net income also included $5 million of pension settlement expense.

Adjusted net income for Marketing and Other was $243 million in the third quarter of 2018, an increase of $98 million from the second quarter. Marketing benefited from improved market conditions with realized margins increasing by 28 percent. U.S. Branded Marketing and U.K. Marketing volumes increased by 2 percent and 3 percent, respectively, due to seasonality. Refined product exports in the third quarter were 190,000 barrels per day (BPD).

Specialties generated adjusted net income of $47 million during the third quarter, down from $50 million in the prior quarter due to lower margins.

Corporate and Other third-quarter net costs were $136 million, compared with net costs of $207 million in the second quarter of 2018. Net costs included tax adjustments of $54 million and $24 million in the third and second quarters of 2018, respectively, primarily related to adjustments to the provisional income tax benefit of U.S. tax reform. In addition, the third quarter included pension settlement expense of $3 million.

Third-quarter Corporate and Other adjusted net costs were $187 million, in line with the prior quarter.

Financial Position, Liquidity and Return of Capital

Phillips 66 generated $582 million in cash from operations during the third quarter. Excluding working capital impacts, operating cash flow was $2.1 billion. Cash distributions from equity affiliates were $910 million in the third quarter. CPChem and WRB Refining each made third-quarter cash distributions of $325 million to Phillips 66.

During the quarter, Phillips 66 funded $405 million in share repurchases, $370 million in dividends and $779 million of capital expenditures and investments. The company ended the quarter with 461 million shares outstanding.

As of Sept. 30, 2018, cash and cash equivalents were $924 million, and consolidated debt was $11.3 billion, including $2.9 billion at Phillips 66 Partners (PSXP). The company's consolidated debt-to-capital ratio was 31 percent and its net-debt-to-capital ratio was 29 percent. Excluding PSXP, the debt-to-capital ratio was 26 percent and the net-debt-to-capital ratio was 25 percent.

Strategic Update

Phillips 66 Partners is constructing the Gray Oak Pipeline, which will provide crude oil transportation from the Permian and Eagle Ford to destinations in Corpus Christi and Freeport, including the Sweeny Refinery. Supported by customer commitments, capacity of the pipeline will be 900,000 BPD. Phillips 66 Partners currently has a 75 percent ownership interest in the pipeline project, and third parties have options to acquire an interest in the pipeline that could reduce Phillips 66 Partners ownership to 42.25 percent by year end. Gray Oak Pipeline is anticipated to be in service by the end of 2019.

In Corpus Christi, the Gray Oak Pipeline will connect to the new South Texas Gateway Terminal under development by Buckeye Partners, L.P. The marine terminal will have an initial storage capacity of 3.4 million barrels and is expected to begin operations by the end of 2019. Phillips 66 Partners owns a 25 percent interest in the terminal.

At the Sweeny Hub, the company is constructing two 150,000-BPD NGL fractionators and associated pipeline infrastructure, and Phillips 66 Partners is adding 6 million barrels of storage capacity at Clemens Caverns. Upon completion of the expansion, expected in late 2020, the Sweeny Hub will have 400,000 BPD of fractionation capability and 15 million barrels of storage capacity.

The company recently added 900,000 barrels of crude oil storage at the Beaumont Terminal, bringing total crude and products storage capacity to 13.3 million barrels. Additional crude oil tanks are under construction to increase storage capacity to 14.6 million barrels by the end of this year. A further expansion of 2.2 million barrels of crude oil capacity is planned for completion in the first quarter of 2020.

DCP Midstream is expanding the Sand Hills Pipeline and capacity is expected to reach 485,000 BPD in the fourth quarter of 2018. The pipeline transports NGL from the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford to the Texas Gulf Coast and is owned two-thirds by DCP Midstream and one-third by Phillips 66 Partners. DCP Midstream is adding gas processing capacity in the DJ Basin. The Mewbourn 3 plant, with a capacity of 200 million cubic feet per day, was completed in the third quarter and the O’Connor 2 plant is under construction with completion expected in the second quarter of 2019.

In Chemicals, CPChem has a leading position in olefins and polyolefins to supply the world’s growing demand for high-quality plastics. CPChem’s portfolio of cost advantaged assets are strategically located in the U.S. and Middle East. Abundant U.S. ethane supplies remain the cost advantaged feedstock for petrochemicals growth. CPChem continues to optimize its new U.S. Gulf Coast (USGC) petrochemicals assets and is developing a second USGC project that would include ethylene and derivative capacity. CPChem is also evaluating additional capacity across multiple product lines through debottleneck opportunities on existing units.

In Refining, a fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) unit optimization project is underway at the Sweeny Refinery to increase production of higher-value petrochemical products and higher-octane gasoline. The project is anticipated to be completed mid-2020. At the Lake Charles Refinery, Phillips 66 Partners is constructing a 25,000-BPD isomerization unit to increase production of higher-octane gasoline blend components. The project is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2019.

In Marketing, the company continued its program to roll out an updated signature image design for Phillips 66, 76 and Conoco branded marketing sites. A total of 384 domestic sites were re-imaged during the third quarter. To date, over 2,100 U.S. sites have been re-imaged since the program’s inception in 2015 with same site sales increasing 2 to 3 percent on average.
