products. Earnings were also reduced as a result of repair and maintenance
activities in our U.S. refineries." The Full Research Report on Chevron

Lake Phase E first production in July and startups expected at Jasmine,
Ekofisk South, SNP and the Gumusut FPS before year end. Our exploration

Operating cash flow was $5.4 billion, up 21.1% YoY. BP's Upstream segment
posted pre-tax underlying replacement cost profit of $4.3 billion, a 2.6% YoY
decrease, primarily due to increasing production from new high-margin projects
largely offsetting the impact of divestments. Commenting on the results, Bob
Dudley, BP Group Chief Executive, said, "The results show strong underlying
pre-tax performance from BP's businesses. We are seeing growth in production
from new high-margin projects and are making good progress in exploration and
project delivery. Completion of our operational milestones confirms our
confidence in delivering our commitment to materially increase operating cash
flow in 2014." The Full Research Report on BP plc - including full detailed
