    HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX), a diversified energy manufacturing and logistics company, announces third-quarter 2019 earnings of $712 million, compared with $1.4 billion in the second quarter of 2019. Excluding special items of $690 million in the third quarter, primarily impairments related to the company's investment in DCP Midstream, LLC, adjusted earnings were $1.4 billion, compared with second-quarter adjusted earnings of $1.4 billion.

    “We continued to successfully execute our strategy and delivered another quarter of solid financial results,” said Greg Garland, chairman and CEO of Phillips 66. “We operated safely and reliably and captured favorable margins in our Refining and Marketing businesses. Midstream's transportation and NGL businesses reported record pre-tax income, while we continued to progress Midstream's portfolio of growth projects. The Lake Charles isomerization unit reached full production, and line fill started on the Gray Oak Pipeline. CPChem operated well and contributed to our strong operating cash flow.”

    “During the quarter, we returned $841 million to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases. As part of our ongoing commitment to return capital to our shareholders, we announced a new $3 billion share repurchase program. Since 2012, we have returned approximately $25 billion to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases and exchanges and have reduced our initial shares outstanding by one-third.”

    “We look forward to providing an update on our strategy and how we are positioned to deliver superior returns to shareholders at our upcoming investor day in New York on Nov. 6.”

    Midstream had a third-quarter pre-tax loss of $460 million, compared with pre-tax income of $423 million in the second quarter of 2019. Midstream results in the third quarter included $900 million of impairments related to Phillips 66’s equity investment in DCP Midstream, LLC (DCP Midstream).

    Transportation third-quarter adjusted pre-tax income of $248 million was $3 million higher than the second quarter, primarily due to higher pipeline volumes.

    NGL and Other adjusted pre-tax income for the third quarter was $169 million, a $26 million increase from the second quarter. The improvement was mainly due to butane and propane trading activity.

    The company’s equity investment in DCP Midstream generated adjusted pre-tax income of $23 million in the third quarter, compared with $35 million in the second quarter. The decrease primarily reflects lower hedging results.

    The Chemicals segment reflects Phillips 66’s equity investment in Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC (CPChem). Chemicals’ third-quarter pre-tax income was $227 million, compared with $275 million in the second quarter. Chemicals results in the third quarter included a $42 million reduction to equity earnings from a lower-of-cost-or-market inventory adjustment.

    CPChem’s Olefins and Polyolefins (O&P) business contributed $251 million of adjusted pre-tax income in the third quarter of 2019, compared with $260 million in the second quarter. The $9 million decrease mainly reflects lower margins, partially offset by higher sales volumes. Global O&P utilization was 97% in the third quarter.

    CPChem’s Specialties, Aromatics and Styrenics (SA&S) business contributed third-quarter 2019 adjusted pre-tax income of $36 million, in line with the prior quarter.

    Refining third-quarter pre-tax income was $856 million, compared with $983 million in the second quarter of 2019. Refining results in the third quarter included a $17 million favorable adjustment related to a prior year asset disposition.

    Refining adjusted pre-tax income was $839 million in the third quarter of 2019, compared with $983 million in the second quarter of 2019. The decrease is mainly due to higher turnaround costs, as well as lower realized margins, primarily reflecting weaker gasoline crack spreads in the Central Corridor.

    Phillips 66's worldwide crude utilization rate was 97%. Pre-tax turnaround costs for the third quarter were $120 million, compared with second-quarter costs of $67 million. Clean product yield was 84% in the third quarter.

    Adjusted pre-tax income for Marketing and Other was $440 million in the third quarter of 2019, an increase of $146 million from the second quarter of 2019. The increase was primarily due to higher margins, driven by favorable market conditions. Refined product exports in the third quarter were 220,000 barrels per day (BPD).

    The $27 million decrease in Corporate and Other adjusted pre-tax costs in the third quarter was due to lower environmental expenses and higher capitalized interest.

Excluding working capital impacts, operating cash flow was $1.8 billion. Phillips 66 Partners (PSXP) issued $900 million of unsecured notes and repaid its $400 million term loan in the quarter. On Oct. 15, 2019, PSXP repaid an additional $300 million of outstanding debt.

    Strategic Update

    In Midstream, Phillips 66 Partners is constructing the 900,000 BPD Gray Oak Pipeline, which is anticipated to begin initial service in the fourth quarter of 2019. The pipeline will provide crude oil transportation from the Permian and Eagle Ford to Texas Gulf Coast destinations that include Corpus Christi, the Sweeny area, including the company's Sweeny Refinery, as well as access to the Houston market. Phillips 66 Partners has a 42.25% ownership in the pipeline.

    The Gray Oak Pipeline will connect to multiple terminals in Corpus Christi, including the South Texas Gateway Terminal currently being constructed by Buckeye Partners, L.P. The marine export terminal will have two deepwater docks, with storage capacity of over 7 million barrels and up to 800,000 BPD of throughput capacity. Phillips 66 Partners owns a 25% interest in the terminal, which is expected to start up by mid-2020.

    Phillips 66 is expanding the Sweeny Hub with the addition of three fractionators, each with capacity of 150,000 BPD. Fracs 2 and 3 are anticipated to start up in the fourth quarter of 2020. Frac 4 is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2021. The new fractionators are supported by long-term customer commitments. Upon completion of Frac 4, the Sweeny Hub will have 550,000 BPD of fractionation capacity.

    Also at the Sweeny Hub, Phillips 66 Partners is adding 6 million barrels of storage capacity at Clemens Caverns. Upon completion in the fourth quarter of 2020, Clemens Caverns will have 15 million barrels of storage capacity. Phillips 66 Partners is also constructing the C2G Pipeline, a 16 inch ethane pipeline that will connect Clemens Caverns to petrochemical facilities in Gregory, Texas, near Corpus Christi. The project is backed by long-term commitments and is expected to be completed in mid-2021.

    The company continues to expand capacity at its Beaumont Terminal, adding 2.2 million barrels of crude oil storage. Upon completion in the first quarter of 2020, the terminal will have 16.8 million barrels of total crude and product storage capacity.

    Phillips 66 is progressing the Liberty Pipeline, which will provide crude oil transportation from the Rockies and Bakken production areas to Cushing, Oklahoma. Liberty is supported by long-term shipper commitments, and initial service is expected in the first half of 2021. Phillips 66 owns a 50% interest in Liberty and will construct and operate the pipeline.

    The company is also advancing the Red Oak Pipeline system, which will provide crude oil transportation from Cushing and the Permian Basin to multiple destinations along the Texas Gulf Coast, including Corpus Christi, Ingleside, Houston and Beaumont. Red Oak is supported by long-term shipper commitments, and initial service is expected in the first half of 2021. Our joint venture partner will construct and Phillips 66 will operate the pipeline. Phillips 66 owns a 50% interest in the venture.

    DCP Midstream’s O’Connor 2 plant was placed in service in the quarter, adding 200 million cubic feet per day of gas processing capacity in the DJ Basin. In the Permian, DCP Midstream has a 25% interest in the Gulf Coast Express Pipeline, which transports approximately 2 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas to Gulf Coast markets. The pipeline began commercial operations during the quarter.

    In Chemicals, CPChem and Qatar Petroleum are jointly pursuing development of a petrochemical facility on the U.S. Gulf Coast that would add world-scale ethylene and derivative capacity to meet growing global demand. The U.S. Gulf Coast II Petrochemical Project is expected to include a 2 million metric tons per year ethylene cracker and two high-density polyethylene units, each with capacity of 1 million metric tons per year. CPChem would own 51% and have responsibility for the construction, operation and management of the facility. Final investment decision is expected no later than 2021, with targeted startup in 2024.

    CPChem and Qatar Petroleum are pursuing the development, construction and operation of a petrochemicals complex in Qatar. The facility is expected to have a 1.9 million metric tons per year ethylene cracker and two high-density polyethylene derivative units with a combined capacity of 1.7 million metric tons per year. Pending final investment decision, the project is expected to start up in late 2025. CPChem will own a 30% share of the joint venture.

    In Refining, Phillips 66 is upgrading the fluid catalytic cracking unit (FCC) at the Sweeny Refinery to increase production of higher-value petrochemical products and higher-octane gasoline. The project is anticipated to be completed in the second quarter of 2020.

    In Marketing, the company continues its program to roll out updated signature image designs for Phillips 66, 76 and Conoco branded sites in the United States. During the quarter, 373 sites were reimaged. Since the program’s inception in 2015, approximately 3,700 sites have been reimaged.

However, the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. Forward-looking statements relating to Phillips 66’s operations (including joint venture operations) are based on management’s expectations, estimates and projections about the company, its interests and the energy industry in general on the date this news release was prepared. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecast in such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements include fluctuations in NGL, crude oil, and natural gas prices, and petrochemical and refining margins; unexpected changes in costs for constructing, modifying or operating our facilities; unexpected difficulties in manufacturing, refining or transporting our products; lack of, or disruptions in, adequate and reliable transportation for our NGL, crude oil, natural gas, and refined products; potential liability from litigation or for remedial actions, including removal and reclamation obligations under environmental regulations; limited access to capital or significantly higher cost of capital related to illiquidity or uncertainty in the domestic or international financial markets; the impact of adverse market conditions or other similar risks to those identified herein affecting PSXP, as well as the ability of PSXP to successfully execute its growth plans; and other economic, business, competitive and/or regulatory factors affecting Phillips 66’s businesses generally as set forth in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

    *We generally tax effect taxable U.S.-based special items using a combined federal and state statutory income tax rate of approximately 25%. 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.
