What's in Store for Plains All American's (PAA) Q2 Earnings?

Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. PAA is set to report second-quarter 2022 results on Aug 3, after market close. The firm owns and operates midstream energy infrastructure, and provides logistics services for crude oil and natural gas liquids.

The company reported a negative earnings surprise of 16.2% in the last quarter.

Let’s discuss the factors that are likely to get reflected in the upcoming quarterly results.

Factors at Play

Plains All American’s second-quarter earnings are likely to have gained from strong production in the Permian region, which resulted in increasing volumes in its Permian JV and long-haul systems. The firm’s earnings are also expected to have benefitted from a favorable commodity price environment.

The firm repaid outstanding debts, which strengthened its balance sheet and lowered capital serving costs in the second quarter, boosting its margin. Lower outstanding units due to repurchase are also likely to have had a positive impact on second-quarter earnings.

Expectation

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for second-quarter 2022 earnings per unit is pegged at 24 cents, which indicates an increase of 4.4% from the year-ago reported figure.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for second-quarter 2022 total revenues is pegged at $13.45 billion, which implies an increase of 35.4% from the year-ago reported figure.
