Third Quarter 2013 vs. Third Quarter 2012
Upstream earnings were $6,713 million in the third quarter of 2013, up $740 million from the third quarter of 2012. Higher liquids and natural gas realizations increased earnings by $440 million. Production volume and mix effects increased earnings by $20 million. All other items, including favorable tax and foreign exchange impacts, partly offset by higher operating expenses, increased earnings by $280 million.
On an oil-equivalent basis, production increased 1.5% from the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the impacts of entitlement volumes, OPEC quota effects and divestments, production increased 2.7%.
Liquids production totaled 2,199 kbd (thousands of barrels per day), up 83 kbd from the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the impacts of entitlement volumes, OPEC quota effects and divestments, liquids production was up 5.3%, as lower downtime and project ramp-up in Canada and Nigeria were partially offset by field decline.
Third quarter natural gas production was 10,914 mcfd (millions of cubic feet per day), down 147 mcfd from 2012. Excluding the impacts of entitlement volumes and divestments, natural gas production was down 0.3%, as field decline was mostly offset by lower downtime and project ramp-up.
