Occidental Petroleum Corporation Announces Consolidated Earnings and Operating Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Provides Interest Expense Guidance for the Second Quarter of 2015, Capital Spending and Production Guidance for the Full Year of 2015

Occidental Petroleum Corporation announced consolidated earnings and operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company’s core income for the first quarter was 2015 of $31 million or $0.04 per diluted share, compared with $560 million or $0.72 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2014 and $1.095 billion or $1.38 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2014. The first quarter of 2015 had a reported net loss of $218 million or $0.28 per basic and diluted share, compared with a loss of $3.4 billion or $4.41 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2014 and reported net income of $1.4 billion or $1.75 per basic and diluted share for the first quarter of 2014. The first quarter of 2015 included non-core charges of $249 million, comprised mainly of asset impairment charges for certain domestic and international assets. Net sales were $3,089 million against $4,968 million a year ago. Loss from continuing operations was $215 million or $0.28 per basic and diluted share against income from continuing operations of $1,135 million or $1.43 per basic and diluted share a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $561 million against $2,697 million a year ago. Capital expenditures, net were $1,735 million against $1,731 million a year ago. Capital expenditures were $1,675 million against $1,794 million a year ago. For the first quarter of 2015, total company average daily oil and gas production volumes increased by 72,000 barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) to 645,000 BOE from 573,000 BOE in the first quarter of 2014, which excludes Hugoton production. Total company average daily oil and gas production volumes were 645,000 BOE against 591,000 BOE in the first quarter of 2014. Domestic average daily production increased by 24,000 BOE to 326,000 BOE in the current quarter with the majority of the increase coming from oil production, which grew by 25,000 barrels to 198,000 barrels per day, substantially all coming from Permian Resources. The increase in domestic oil production was partially offset by lower natural gas production in the Midcontinent and Other regions. International average daily production increased to 319,000 BOE in the first quarter of 2015 from 271,000 BOE in first quarter of 2014. Approximately half of the increase resulted from the impact of production-sharing contracts due to the low crude oil price environment, and the remainder from the commencement of production for the Al Hosn Gas Project and operational improvements. Total company average daily sales volumes grew from 562,000 BOE in the first quarter of 2014 to 637,000 BOE in the same period of 2015. Sales volumes were lower than production volumes mainly due to the timing of liftings in Iraq, which have resumed in the second quarter. The company expects its interest expense to rise to about $42 million in the second quarter from $28 million in the first quarter as the start of Al Hosn reduces its capitalized interest. The company expects its total capital spending for the year to be below its original guidance of $5.8 billion. The company has raised its full year 2015 guidance for production growth to a range of 60,000 to 80,000 BOE per day, an increase of 20,000 BOE per day versus its previous guidance. The company expects full year production in Permian Resources to be in the range of 105,000 and 108,000 BOE per day, a year-over-year increase of more than 40%.
