Press Release12/11/2015 15:00
In the first nine months of 2015 Repsol obtained an adjusted net income of 1.399 billion, a 5% increase from the 1.337 billion euros in the same period of 2014.
The strength of Repsol’s integrated model has allowed the company to improve earnings in an environment marked by an almost 50% fall in the price of crude oil.
Net income (MIFO) was 832 million euros, impacted by the effect of falling crude oil prices on the value of inventories (329 million euros) and by a non-recurring negative item of 238 million euros, essentially from extraordinary impairments booked in the period.
Repsol’s average production reached 653,400 barrels of oil equivalent per day in the third quarter, almost 80% more than in the year-earlier period.
The Downstream unit increased its adjusted net income by 158% to 1.655 billion euros, supported by its ability to extract maximum value from its refining and chemicals businesses.
Repsol’s refining margin indicator was amongst the highest in Europe in the first nine months of the year, at 8.9 dollars per barrel.
Repsol in October presented its 2016-2020 Strategic Plan, which marks the start of a period of extracting value from the growth achieved as a consequence of the its previous plan.
The 2016-2020 Plan includes ambitious efficiency, cost reduction and portfolio management programs. The company has already agreed more than 1.6 billion euros in non-strategic asset divestments.
