Income from continuing operations in the 2015 first quarter was $3.5 million or $0.02 per diluted share compared to $169.3 million or $0.93 per diluted share earned in the first quarter a year ago. Adjusted earnings, which exclude both the results of discontinued operations and certain other items that affect comparability of results between periods, in the first quarter of 2015 showed a loss of $198.5 million or $1.11 per diluted share. This was a decrease of $373.3 million or $2.07 per diluted share compared to the prior year's quarter primarily attributed to approximately a 50% decline in both Brent and West Texas Intermediate benchmark crude prices and a 44% decline in the Henry Hub natural gas price. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) for continuing operations totaled $391.4 million in the first quarter 2015, down from $754.4 million in the first quarter of 2014. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and exploration expenses (EBITDAX) for continuing operations totaled $520.1 million in the first quarter 2015, down from $892.9 million in the first quarter of 2014. The first quarter results from continuing operations for 2015 included a gain of $199.5 million on the sale of an additional interest in Malaysian business. It also included a $32.5 million of estimated after-tax cost to remediate a condensate pipeline leak or leaks in Alberta, Canada. Capital expenditures for continuing operations for 2015 in the first quarter totaled $613 million, a 31% decline from the same period in 2014. First quarter production averaged 221,550 barrels of oil equivalent per day, slightly exceeding guidance of 221,000 even barrels of oil equivalent per day, despite unplanned downtimes relating to an advancement of a turnaround of Syncrude as well as downtime associated with lower valued Block K associated gas. Full year production and capital guidance is unchanged at 195,000 to 207,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day per production and $2.3 billion capital spend. For second quarter of 2015 production is estimated to be 197,000 boepd.
