first_imgStatoil delivered adjusted earnings of NOK 22.4 billion and adjusted earnings after tax of NOK 7.2 billion in the second quarter. Statoil reported net income in accordance with IFRS of NOK 10.1 billion, including gains from divestments.“In the second quarter, Statoil delivered encouraging operational performance with good production growth and high regularity, whilst continuing to reduce cost. Our financial results were characterised by gains from divestments and lower prices. Also in the second quarter, we report a close to neutral free cash flow after dividend and proceeds,” says president and CEO of Statoil ASA, Eldar Sætre.Adjusted earnings were NOK 22.4 billion in the second quarter compared to NOK 32.3 billion in the same period in 2014. The reduction was primarily a consequence of lower oil prices in the second quarter of 2015 compared to the same period last year. Realised average liquids prices in the quarter were down 28% measured in NOK compared to the second quarter last year.Adjusted earnings after tax were NOK 7.2 billion, compared to NOK 9.9 billion in the same period last year.Statoil’s net income according to IFRS for the second quarter was NOK 10.1 billion, compared to NOK 12.0 billion in the same period in 2014. The gain from the divestment of the Shah Deniz project and the South Caucasus Pipeline was NOK 12.3 billion, impacting the IFRS results. Earnings per share were NOK 3.15, down from NOK 3.75 in the same period last year.“We continue to progress our effort to improve operational and capital efficiency, and reduce cost. Reduced underlying operational expenses both on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS) and in our international operations, as well as reduced capital expenditures, demonstrate that our initiatives are effective. In June we announced adjustments to the company’s structure and operating model to further strengthen our competitiveness,” says Sætre.Despite divestments, Statoil delivered production of 1.873 million barrels of oil equivalent per day in the second quarter, up 4% compared to the same period in 2014. The underlying production growth, after adjusting for divestments, was 7% compared to the second quarter last year. The production from the NCS grew 7% in the second quarter of 2015 compared to last year. The increase was mainly due to ramp-up of production on various fields, higher gas sales from the NCS and lower maintenance compared to the second quarter of 2014. Expected natural decline and reduced ownership shares from divestments partially offset the increase.Equity production outside of Norway was 724,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day and represented almost a 4% increase, adjusted for the Shah Deniz divestment.In the quarter, Statoil made two discoveries on the NCS. In July, Statoil announced a discovery in the Julius prospect in the King Lear area in the North Sea. Three wells are on-going, one on the United Kingdom continental shelf, one in the Gulf of Mexico and one in Canada. In addition, Statoil has secured access to frontier acreages offshore Nicaragua and Myanmar. The adjusted exploration expense in the quarter was NOK 4.1 billion, up from NOK 2.7 billion in the second quarter of 2014.Cash flow from operations amounted to NOK 48.0 billion in the first half of 2015. Statoil maintained a strong capital structure, and net debt to capital employed at the end of the quarter is reduced to 22.4%. Organic capital expenditure was USD 7.8 billion in the first half, and the guidance has been revised downwards to USD 17.5 billion for 2015 due to effects of the on-going efficiency program and the USD/NOK exchange rate.[mappress mapid=”12109″]last_img read more

first_imgMore on the topicManchester United legend Paul Scholes took the tape back more than 20 years, remembering how he missed the 1999 Champions League final against Bayern Munich.The midfielder received a penalty in the rematch with Juventus in the semifinals, and the match turned out to be historic, because the “red devils” created a complete turnaround for the success with 3: 2.“You just put up with the fact that you won’t play in the final. I was devastated at the time, but there was nothing I could do about it. Roy Keane also received a yellow card and missed the match for the trophy,” Scholes was quoted as saying by Goal.com.“I went into martial arts for the ball with Didier Deschamps and then I watched the situation again. I don’t even think it was a violation, to be honest.”“It happened right in front of the judge, but Deschamps screamed like a girl, like a big baby who didn’t help me. I got a card and missed the final,” Scholes added.In the end, the absence of the two big stars in the middle of the field did not prevent United from lifting the Ears, turning the Bavarians with two goals in added time in one of the most dramatic finals in the history of football.last_img read more
