  • Generated $1.7 billion of operating cash flow; $910 million excluding working capital

  • Delivered record Chemicals earnings

  • CPChem began construction on a world-scale 1-hexene unit

  • Ramped up renewable diesel production at San Francisco Refinery

  • Recently resumed construction of the 150,000-BPD Frac 4 at the Sweeny Hub

  • Issued 2021 Sustainability Report in July

HOUSTON, August 03, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX), a diversified energy manufacturing and logistics company, announces second-quarter 2021 earnings of $296 million, compared with a loss of $654 million in the first quarter of 2021. Excluding special items of $33 million, the company had adjusted earnings of $329 million in the second quarter, compared with a first-quarter adjusted loss of $509 million.

"Our second-quarter results reflect the recovery of operations after the prior quarter’s winter storms, as well as further product demand improvement as more people across the globe are vaccinated," said Greg Garland, Chairman and CEO of Phillips 66. "CPChem generated record quarterly earnings supported by robust demand, utilization and margins. Midstream and Marketing and Specialties delivered strong, consistent earnings, while Refining profitability remained challenged.

"Across our portfolio, we are advancing our strategic projects and pursuing lower-carbon opportunities. At Rodeo, renewable diesel production from the hydrotreater conversion reached full rates in July, and permitting for the full facility conversion is moving forward as planned. At the Sweeny Hub, we recently resumed construction of Frac 4, which we expect to complete in the fourth quarter of 2022.

"Our recently released 2021 Sustainability Report outlines our commitment to a lower-carbon future through environmental stewardship, social responsibility and strong corporate governance. As previously communicated, we will establish greenhouse gas emission reduction targets later this year.

"Looking forward, we remain optimistic that demand recovery for our products will continue. We will adhere to our disciplined capital allocation framework, including our commitment to debt reduction as well as a secure, competitive dividend. We anticipate a return to dividend growth as cash flow recovers. In the second quarter, we returned $394 million in dividends to shareholders."

Midstream second-quarter 2021 pre-tax income was $312 million, compared with $76 million in the first quarter of 2021. Midstream results in the second quarter included $4 million of pension settlement expense. First-quarter results included a $198 million impairment resulting from Phillips 66 Partners’ decision to exit the Liberty Pipeline project, as well as $2 million of winter-storm-related maintenance and repair costs.

Transportation second-quarter adjusted pre-tax income of $224 million was $18 million higher than the first quarter, primarily due to improved volumes from increased refinery utilization rates, partially offset by timing of maintenance and asset integrity work.

NGL and Other adjusted pre-tax income was $83 million in the second quarter, compared with $36 million in the first quarter. The increase was primarily due to lower operating costs and higher volumes, reflecting recovery from the first-quarter winter storms.

The company’s equity investment in DCP Midstream, LLC generated second-quarter adjusted pre-tax income of $9 million, a $25 million decrease from the prior quarter. The decrease is mainly due to lower mark-to-market hedging results from higher natural gas and NGL prices.

The Chemicals segment reflects Phillips 66’s equity investment in Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC (CPChem). Chemicals second-quarter 2021 pre-tax income was $623 million, compared with $154 million in the first quarter of 2021. Chemicals results in the second quarter included an $18 million reduction to equity earnings for pension settlement expense and $16 million of winter-storm-related maintenance and repair costs. First-quarter results included a reduction to equity earnings of $30 million for winter-storm-related costs.

CPChem’s Olefins and Polyolefins (O&P) business contributed $593 million of adjusted pre-tax income in the second quarter, compared with $174 million in the first quarter. The $419 million increase was driven by strong demand, tight supplies and recovery from the first-quarter winter storms that contributed to higher margins and lower utility costs. Global O&P utilization was 102% for the quarter.

CPChem’s Specialties, Aromatics and Styrenics (SA&S) business contributed second-quarter adjusted pre-tax income of $82 million, compared with $27 million in the first quarter. The increase primarily reflects improved margins due to tight industry supplies following first-quarter winter storm outages, as well as lower turnaround costs.

Refining had a second-quarter 2021 pre-tax loss of $729 million, compared with a pre-tax loss of $1 billion in the first quarter of 2021. Second-quarter results included $20 million of pension settlement expense and $3 million of winter-storm-related maintenance and repair costs. Refining results in the first quarter included $14 million of winter-storm-related costs.

Refining had an adjusted pre-tax loss of $706 million in the second quarter, compared with an adjusted pre-tax loss of $1 billion in the first quarter. The improvement was primarily due to lower utility and turnaround costs and higher volumes, partially offset by lower realized margins. Second-quarter realized margins were lower, as the benefit of improved market crack spreads was more than offset by higher RIN costs, lower electricity sales in the Texas market, decreased secondary product margins, lower clean product differentials and inventory impacts.

Pre-tax turnaround costs for the second quarter were $118 million, compared with first-quarter costs of $192 million. Crude utilization rate was 88% in the second quarter, up from 74% in the first quarter. Clean product yield was 82% in the second quarter, unchanged from the first quarter.

Adjusted pre-tax income for Marketing and Other was $392 million in the second quarter, an increase of $181 million from the first quarter. The increase was primarily due to higher domestic margins and volumes, reflecting stronger demand in key markets. Refined product exports in the second quarter were 216,000 barrels per day (BPD).

Specialties generated second-quarter adjusted pre-tax income of $87 million, up from $79 million in the prior quarter.

Financial Position, Liquidity and Return of Capital

Phillips 66 generated $1.7 billion in cash from operations in the second quarter of 2021, including a working capital benefit of $833 million and cash distributions from equity affiliates of $612 million. The working capital benefit was primarily due to receipt of a U.S. federal income tax refund.

During the quarter, Phillips 66 funded $380 million of capital expenditures and investments and paid $394 million in dividends.

As of June 30, 2021, Phillips 66 had $7.9 billion of liquidity, reflecting $2.2 billion of cash and cash equivalents and approximately $5.7 billion of total committed capacity under revolving credit facilities. Consolidated debt was $15.4 billion at June 30, 2021, including $3.9 billion at Phillips 66 Partners (PSXP). The company’s consolidated debt-to-capital ratio was 43% and its net debt-to-capital ratio was 39%. Excluding PSXP, the debt-to-capital ratio was 39% and the net debt-to-capital ratio was 34%.

Strategic Update

Phillips 66 Partners continued construction of the C2G Pipeline, a 16 inch ethane pipeline that will connect its Clemens Caverns storage facility to petrochemical facilities in Gregory, Texas, near Corpus Christi, Texas. The project is backed by long-term commitments. The pipeline is expected to be operational in the fourth quarter of 2021.

At the Sweeny Hub, Phillips 66 resumed construction of the 150,000-BPD fourth fractionator. The project is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2022 and will increase Sweeny Hub fractionation capacity to 550,000 BPD. The fractionators are supported by long-term commitments.

In Chemicals, CPChem and Qatar Petroleum are jointly pursuing development of petrochemical facilities on the U.S. Gulf Coast and in Ras Laffan, Qatar. CPChem expects to make a final investment decision for its U.S. Gulf Coast project in 2022.

CPChem is expanding its alpha olefins business with a second world-scale unit to produce 1-hexene, a critical component in high-performance polyethylene. In May, CPChem began construction on the 266,000 metric tons per year unit, located in Old Ocean, Texas, near its Sweeny facility. The project will utilize CPChem’s proprietary technology and is expected to start up in 2023.

In May, CPChem received the annual Re|focus Sustainability Leadership Innovation Award from the Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) for being among the top 2021 industry innovators in sustainability. The award recognizes the company’s launch of Marlex® Anew Circular Polyethylene, which uses advanced recycling technology to convert difficult-to-recycle plastic waste into high-quality raw materials.

Phillips 66 is advancing its plans at the San Francisco Refinery in Rodeo, California, to meet the growing demand for renewable fuels. The hydrotreater conversion reached full rates of 8,000 BPD (120 million gallons per year) of renewable diesel in July. Subject to permitting and approvals, full conversion of the refinery is expected to be finished in early 2024. Upon completion, the facility will have over 50,000 BPD (800 million gallons per year) of renewable fuel production capacity. The conversion will reduce emissions from the facility and produce lower-carbon transportation fuels.

In Marketing, Phillips 66 is converting 600 branded retail sites in California to sell renewable diesel produced by the Rodeo facility. In Switzerland, the Phillips 66 COOP retail joint venture is adding hydrogen fueling stations. Through the joint venture, Phillips 66 is exploring hydrogen as a fuel option for heavy-duty vehicles to support European low-carbon goals and growing demand for sustainable fuels.

Phillips 66 recently released its 2021 Sustainability Report. The report includes a detailed analysis of the company’s climate-related risks and opportunities as well as performance data on various environmental, social and governance, or ESG, matters.

*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.
