Source: Phillips

Reported first-quarter earnings of $582 million or $1.29 per share; adjusted earnings of $595 million or $1.32 per share
Generated $1.1 billion of operating cash flow; $1.3 billion excluding working capital
Repaid $1.45 billion of debt in April
Announced plan to restart share repurchases
Received industry recognition for exemplary safety performance in Chemicals and Refining
Recently announced CEO transition plan
HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX), a diversified energy company, announces first-quarter 2022 earnings of $582 million, compared with earnings of $1.3 billion in the fourth quarter of 2021. Excluding special items of $13 million, the company had adjusted earnings of $595 million in the first quarter, compared with fourth-quarter adjusted earnings of $1.3 billion.
“In the first quarter, we generated strong cash flow in a volatile market environment with seasonally lower margins across our businesses,” said Greg Garland, Chairman and CEO of Phillips 66. “While first-quarter results were lower quarter-on-quarter, we saw substantially improved financial results from our operations in March and expect continued strong performance in the second quarter. We believe current market conditions will allow us to increase shareholder returns by restarting share repurchases and increasing the dividend. In April, we repaid $1.45 billion of debt and plan to repay additional debt this year.
“Our focus remains on operating excellence and our strategic initiatives. We are progressing a transformation effort to improve the cost structure across the enterprise. In Midstream, we advanced Frac 4 construction at the Sweeny Hub. In Chemicals, CPChem continued to execute growth and optimization projects. Our Humber Refinery completed its first delivery of sustainable aviation fuel, and we announced a joint venture to develop retail hydrogen fueling stations in Europe. In addition, we announced a 2050 greenhouse gas emissions reduction target demonstrating our commitment to a lower-carbon future.
“Earlier this month, we announced that Mark Lashier will become President and CEO of Phillips 66 effective July 1. I am confident that Mark will serve Phillips 66, our employees, communities and shareholders well, and is the right leader to position the company to thrive in the years ahead.”

Midstream first-quarter 2022 pre-tax income was $242 million, compared with $593 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. Fourth-quarter results included asset retirement costs of $70 million related to the shutdown of the Alliance Refinery in connection with plans to convert it to a terminal, $4 million of hurricane-related maintenance and repair costs and $1 million of pension settlement expense.
Transportation first-quarter adjusted pre-tax income was $278 million, in line with the previous quarter.
NGL and Other adjusted pre-tax income was $91 million in the first quarter, compared with adjusted pre-tax income of $138 million in the fourth quarter. The decrease was primarily due to inventory impacts, partially offset by improved butane and propane trading results.
The company’s equity investment in DCP Midstream, LLC generated first-quarter adjusted pre-tax income of $31 million, an $80 million decrease from the prior quarter. The decrease was mainly driven by unfavorable hedging impacts, partially offset by lower operating costs.
In the first quarter, the fair value of the company’s investment in NOVONIX, Ltd., decreased by $158 million compared with a $146 million increase in the fourth quarter.

The Chemicals segment reflects Phillips 66’s equity investment in Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC (CPChem). Chemicals first-quarter 2022 pre-tax income was $396 million, compared with $436 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. Chemicals results in the fourth quarter included a $14 million benefit from insurance proceeds associated with winter-storm-related damages, partially offset by a $2 million reduction to equity earnings for pension settlement expense.
CPChem’s Olefins and Polyolefins (O&P) business contributed $377 million of adjusted pre-tax income in the first quarter, compared with $405 million in the fourth quarter. The $28 million decrease was primarily due to lower polyethylene margins, partially offset by higher sales volumes. Global O&P utilization was 99% for the quarter.
CPChem’s Specialties, Aromatics and Styrenics (SA&S) business contributed first-quarter adjusted pre-tax income of $32 million, in line with the fourth quarter.

Refining had first-quarter 2022 pre-tax income of $123 million, compared with a pre-tax income of $346 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. Refining results in the first quarter included $17 million of hurricane-related costs. Fourth-quarter results included $122 million of asset retirement and exit costs related to the shutdown of the Alliance Refinery in connection with plans to convert it to a terminal, as well as $30 million of hurricane-related costs and $5 million of pension settlement expense. These costs were partially offset by an $88 million reduction in estimated RIN obligations for the 2020 compliance year and other tax benefits of $11 million.
Refining had adjusted pre-tax income of $140 million in the first quarter, compared with adjusted pre-tax income of $404 million in the fourth quarter. The decrease was due to lower realized margins, as well as lower clean product volumes driven by planned maintenance. First-quarter realized margins were $10.55 per barrel, down from $11.60 per barrel in the fourth quarter. Favorable impacts from higher market crack spreads were more than offset by higher RIN costs, lower Gulf Coast clean product realizations, lower secondary product margins, and inventory impacts. The higher RIN costs were primarily due to the absence of the reduction in the 2021 compliance year obligation recorded in the fourth quarter.
Pre-tax turnaround costs for the first quarter were $102 million, compared with fourth-quarter costs of $106 million. Crude utilization rate was 89% and clean product yield was 84% in the first quarter.

Adjusted pre-tax income for Marketing and Other was $203 million in the first quarter, a decrease of $199 million from the fourth quarter. The decrease was primarily due to lower marketing margins mainly resulting from rising spot prices, as well as seasonally lower demand. Refined product exports in the first quarter were 134,000 barrels per day (BPD).
Specialties generated first-quarter adjusted pre-tax income of $113 million, up from $97 million in the prior quarter mainly due to higher finished lubricant margins.

Financial Position, Liquidity and Return of Capital
Phillips 66 generated $1.1 billion in cash from operations in the first quarter of 2022, including cash distributions from equity affiliates of $585 million. Excluding working capital impacts, operating cash flow was $1.3 billion. The company funded capital expenditures and investments of $370 million and paid dividends of $404 million during the quarter.
As of March 31, 2022, Phillips 66 had $9.0 billion of liquidity, reflecting $3.3 billion of cash and cash equivalents and approximately $5.7 billion of total committed capacity under revolving credit facilities. Consolidated debt was $14.4 billion at March 31, 2022. The company’s consolidated debt-to-capital ratio was 39% and its net debt-to-capital ratio was 33%. In April 2022, the company repaid $1.45 billion of maturing debt.
The company announced plans to restart share repurchases. As of March 31, 2022, the company had $2.5 billion remaining on its existing share repurchase authorization, with no expiration date.
Strategic Update
Phillips 66 continues to focus on delivering long-term competitiveness and value creation for its shareholders. The company is progressing a business transformation effort that will identify and implement sustainable cost reductions across the enterprise.
Phillips 66 acquired all of the limited partner interests in Phillips 66 Partners not already owned by Phillips 66 and its affiliates on March 9, 2022. The transaction resulted in the Partnership becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Phillips 66 and no longer a publicly traded partnership.
At the Sweeny Hub, Frac 4 is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2022, adding 150,000 BPD of capacity. The total project cost is expected to be approximately $525 million. Upon completion, total Sweeny Hub fractionation capacity will be 550,000 BPD. The fractionators are supported by long-term commitments.
In Chemicals, CPChem is pursuing a portfolio of high-return growth projects:
Growing its normal alpha olefins business with a second world-scale unit to produce 1-hexene, a critical component in high-performance polyethylene. The 586 million pounds per year unit will be located in Old Ocean, Texas. The project will utilize CPChem’s proprietary technology and startup is expected in 2023.
Expanding CPChem’s propylene splitting capacity by 1 billion pounds per year with a new unit located at its Cedar Bayou facility. Startup is expected in 2023.
Continuing development of world-scale petrochemical facilities on the U.S. Gulf Coast and in Ras Laffan, Qatar, jointly with Qatar Energy. CPChem expects to make a final investment decision for its U.S. Gulf Coast project in 2022.
Phillips 66 is advancing its plans at the San Francisco Refinery in Rodeo, California, to meet the growing demand for renewable fuels. The Rodeo Renewed refinery conversion project is expected to be finished in early 2024, subject to permitting and approvals. Upon completion, the facility will initially 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. The total project cost is anticipated to be approximately $850 million.
The company is leveraging its Emerging Energy efforts to advance its lower-carbon strategy. Recent activities include:
The Humber Refinery made its first delivery of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) under a supply agreement with British Airways.
Phillips 66 entered into an agreement with H2 Energy Europe to form a joint venture to develop up to 250 retail hydrogen refueling stations across Germany, Austria and Denmark by 2026. The agreement is subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions.
The American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) recognized three Phillips 66 refineries for exemplary safety performance in 2021. The Sweeny Refinery received the Distinguished Safety Award, which is the highest annual safety award the industry recognizes. The Billings Refinery received the second-highest recognition, the Elite Gold Award, and the Bayway Refinery earned an Elite Silver Award for top 10 percentile safety performance. CPChem received an Elite Gold and Elite Silver for two of its sites.
The company added a 2050 greenhouse gas emissions intensity reduction target to reduce Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 50% from its operations, below 2019 levels. The new target builds upon the company’s 2030 target announced last year.
Investor Webcast
Later today, members of Phillips 66 executive management will host a webcast at noon EST to discuss the company’s first-quarter performance and provide an update on strategic initiatives.

*We generally tax effect taxable U.S.-based special items using a combined federal and state annual 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.

†Q1 2022 is based on adjusted weighted-average diluted shares of 450,129 thousand. Other periods are based on the same weighted-average diluted shares outstanding as that used in the GAAP diluted earnings per share calculation. Income allocated to participating securities, if applicable, in the adjusted earnings per share calculation is the same as that used in the GAAP diluted earnings per share calculation.

††Costs related to the shutdown of the Alliance Refinery totaled $192 million pre-tax in 4Q 2021. Shutdown-related costs recorded in the Refining segment included asset retirements of $91 million pre-tax recorded in depreciation and amortization expense and pre-tax charges for severance and other exit costs of $31 million. Shutdown-related costs in the Midstream segment included asset retirements of $70 million pre-tax recorded in depreciation and amortization expense.
