Oil-equivalent production was 4 million barrels per day, up 2 percent from the first quarter of 2019, with a 7 percent increase in liquids partly offset by a 5 percent decrease in gas. Excluding entitlement effects and divestments, oil-equivalent production was up 5 percent from the prior year, with Upstream liquids production up 9 percent on growth in the Permian and Guyana. 

In response to market conditions, ExxonMobil announced that it is reducing 2020 capital spending by 30 percent and cash operating expenses by 15 percent. Capex is now expected to be approximately $23 billion for the year, down from the previously announced guidance of $33 billion.

 “COVID-19 has significantly impacted near-term demand, resulting in oversupplied markets and unprecedented pressure on commodity prices and margins,” said Darren W. Woods, chairman and chief executive officer. “While we manage through these challenging times, we are not losing sight of the long-term fundamentals that drive our business. Economic activity will return, and populations and standards of living will increase, which will in turn drive demand for our products and a recovery of the industry.” 

ExxonMobil’s capital allocation priorities remain unchanged. The company’s objective is to continue investing in industry-advantaged projects to create value, preserve cash for the dividend, and make appropriate use of its balance sheet. 

“Our company remains strong and we will manage through the current market downturn as we have for decades,” said Woods. “Today’s circumstances are certainly unique, but our people have the experience, our business has the scale, and we have the financial strength to see us through and emerge stronger than ever.”

To minimize risks presented by COVID-19 and maintain operations, ExxonMobil has implemented enhanced cleaning procedures and modified work practices at sites around the world. 

The company is maximizing production of products critical to the global response, including isopropyl alcohol, which is used to manufacture hand sanitizer, and polypropylene, which is used to make protective masks, gowns and wipes. Manufacturing operations in Louisiana have been reconfigured to produce medical-grade hand sanitizer for donation to COVID-19 response efforts in Louisiana, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas. ExxonMobil is assisting in community-level relief efforts around the world with donations to support food banks and provide fuel, meals, and masks for health care workers and first responders. In addition, ExxonMobil is supporting efforts to redesign and accelerate production of reusable face masks and shields to help alleviate the shortage for medical workers and first responders. 

First Quarter 2020 Business Highlights

Upstream

  • Crude prices weakened significantly during the quarter, reflecting an unprecedented combination of oversupply and the impacts of COVID-19 on global demand.
  • Natural gas prices were lower compared to the fourth quarter, reflecting reduced demand due to mild seasonal weather and COVID-19.
  • Total production volumes were essentially unchanged from the fourth quarter. Excluding entitlement effects and divestments, both liquids and gas volumes increased 5 percent on growth and lower scheduled maintenance. Production in Guyana at the Liza Phase 1 development continues to ramp up, while the first oil shipment was successfully processed at the company’s refinery in Baytown, Texas. Permian production grew 20 percent from the fourth quarter, and was up 56 percent from the first quarter of 2019.

Downstream

  • Industry fuels margins weakened driven by a significant demand decrease for jet fuel and gasoline, impacting results in the quarter. The company experienced favorable mark-to-market derivative impacts associated with its trading activity.
  • Scheduled maintenance activity was lower than fourth quarter, while overall refining throughput was essentially flat as the company managed refinery operations in line with fuel demand and integrated chemical manufacturing needs.

Chemical

  • While chemical realizations remain impacted by industry capacity additions, the company experienced margin improvement across the portfolio due to a significant drop in liquids feedstock prices. 
  • ExxonMobil has increased production at its U.S. Gulf Coast and Asia manufacturing facilities of critical raw materials used in medical masks, gowns and hand sanitizer to help support front line COVID-19 response. The additional monthly production of specialized polypropylene and isopropyl alcohol is enough for 200 million masks or 20 million gowns, and up to 50 million 4-ounce bottles of medical-grade hand sanitizer. 
  • In April, the company reconfigured manufacturing operations in Louisiana to produce medical-grade hand sanitizer for donation to COVID-19 response efforts in Louisiana, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, and Texas. Initial production of 160,000 gallons of medical grade sanitizer – enough to fill nearly 5 million 4-ounce bottles – is being distributed to medical providers and first responders. Additional donation locations are planned.

Strengthening the Portfolio

  • ExxonMobil made an additional discovery offshore Guyana at the Uaru well during the first quarter, marking its 16th discovery on the Stabroek Block and adding to the previously announced estimated recoverable resource in Guyana of more than 8 billion oil-equivalent barrels. Production from the Liza Phase 1 development continues to ramp up and will reach up to 120,000 gross barrels of oil per day, utilizing the Liza Destiny floating production storage and offloading vessel (FPSO). The Liza Unity FPSO, which will be employed for the second phase of Liza development and will have a gross production capacity of 220,000 barrels of oil per day, is under construction and expected to start production in 2022. Pending government approvals and project sanctioning of a third development, production from the Payara field north of the Liza discoveries will increase gross production by an additional 220,000 barrels of oil per day.

Disciplined Investing

  • ExxonMobil announced that it is reducing its 2020 capital spending by 30 percent and lowering cash operating expenses by 15 percent in response to low commodity prices resulting from oversupply and demand weakness from the COVID-19 pandemic. Capital investments for 2020 are expected to be about $23 billion, down from the previously announced $33 billion. Reduced spending is being achieved through increased efficiencies, lower market prices, and slower project pace including the U.S. Permian Basin, Rovuma LNG in Mozambique, and expansions of downstream and chemical facilities. The 15 percent decrease in cash operating expenses is driven by increased efficiencies,reduced activity, and lower energy costs. ExxonMobil continues to monitor market developments and evaluate additional reduction steps.

Advancing Innovative Technologies and Products

  • ExxonMobil announced in April that it joined the Global Center for Medical Innovation (GCMI) to initiate multi-sector and joint development projects to rapidly redesign and manufacture reusable personal protection equipment for health care workers, such as face shields and masks, which are in short supply as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. ExxonMobil is applying its extensive knowledge and experience with polymer-based technologies in combination with GCMI to facilitate development and expedite third-party production of innovative safety equipment that can be sterilized and worn multiple times, including a new industrial-style mask that is being fast-tracked for production to address shortages of N95 masks.
  • ExxonMobil released a model framework for industry-wide methane regulations and urges stakeholders, policymakers and governments to develop comprehensive, enhanced rules to reduce emissions in all phases of production. The framework is based on the company’s voluntary methane reduction program, which involves prioritized replacement of components with a high-leak potential at production sites, technology enhancements to infrastructure and substantial data gathering and research. ExxonMobil has reduced methane emissions from its U.S. unconventional operations by 20 percent since 2016 and remains on track to reach its target of a 15 percent reduction across the company

Frequently Used Terms and Non-GAAP Measures

This press release includes cash flow from operations and asset sales. Because of the regular nature of our asset management and divestment program, we believe it is useful for investors to consider proceeds associated with the sales of subsidiaries, property, plant and equipment, and sales and returns of investments together with cash provided by operating activities when evaluating cash available for investment in the business and financing activities. A reconciliation to net cash provided by operating activities for first quarter 2020 is shown on page 6 and for 2020 and 2019 periods in Attachment V.

This press release also includes cash flow from operations and asset sales excluding working capital. We believe it is useful for investors to consider these numbers in comparing the underlying performance of our business across periods when there are significant period-to-period differences in the amount of changes in working capital. A reconciliation to net cash provided by operating activities for first quarter 2020 is shown on page 6 and for 2020 and 2019 periods in Attachment V.

This press release also includes earnings excluding identified items, which are earnings excluding individually significant non-operational events with an absolute corporate total earnings impact of at least $250 million in a given quarter. The earnings impact of an identified item for an individual segment may be less than $250 million when the item impacts several segments. We believe it is useful for investors to consider these figures in comparing the underlying performance of our business across periods when one, or both, periods include identified items. A reconciliation to earnings is shown for 2020 and 2019 periods in Attachments II-a and II-b. Corresponding per share amounts are shown on page 1 and in attachment II-b, including a reconciliation to earnings per common share – assuming dilution (U.S. GAAP).

This press release also includes total taxes including sales-based taxes. This is a broader indicator of the total tax burden on the corporation’s products and earnings, including certain sales and value-added taxes imposed on and concurrent with revenue-producing transactions with customers and collected on behalf of governmental authorities (“sales-based taxes”). It combines “Income taxes” and “Total other taxes and duties” with sales-based taxes, which are reported net in the income statement. We believe it is useful for the corporation and its investors to understand the total tax burden imposed on the corporation’s products and earnings. A reconciliation to total taxes is shown as part of the Estimated Key Financial and Operating Data in Attachment I.

References to the resource base and other quantities of oil, natural gas or condensate may include estimated amounts that are not yet classified as “proved reserves” under SEC definitions, but which are expected to be ultimately recoverable. The term “project” as used in this release can refer to a variety of different activities and does not necessarily have the same meaning as in any government payment transparency reports. Further information on ExxonMobil’s frequently used financial and operating measures and other terms including “Cash flow from operations and asset sales”, and “Total taxes including sales-based taxes” is contained under the heading “Frequently Used Terms”available through the “Investors”section of our website at www.exxonmobil.com

LIFO Inventory

Crude oil, products and merchandise inventories are carried at the lower of current market value or cost, generally determined under the last-in first-out method (LIFO). The corporation’s results for the first quarter of 2020 include an after-tax earnings charge of $2,096 million from writing down the book value of inventories to their market value at the end of the period. The earnings impact may be adjusted upward or downward this year based on prevailing market prices at the time of future evaluations.At year-end, any required adjustment is considered permanent and is incorporated into the LIFO carrying value of the inventory. 

Reference to Earnings

References to corporate earnings mean net income attributable to ExxonMobil (U.S. GAAP) from the consolidated income statement. Unless otherwise indicated, references to earnings, Upstream, Downstream, Chemical and Corporate and financing segment earnings, and earnings per share are ExxonMobil’s share after excluding amounts attributable to noncontrolling interests.

Exxon Mobil Corporation has numerous affiliates, many with names that include ExxonMobil, Exxon, Mobil, Esso, and XTO. For convenience and simplicity, those terms and terms such as corporation, company, our, we, and its are sometimes used as abbreviated references to specific affiliates or affiliate groups. Similarly, ExxonMobil has business relationships with thousands of customers, suppliers, governments, and others. For convenience and simplicity, words such as venture, joint venture, partnership, co-venturer, and partner are used to indicate business and other relationships involving common activities and interests, and those words may not indicate precise legal relationships.
