Chevron Issues Interim Update for First Quarter 2013
Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) today reported its interim update, which contains industry and company operating data for the first two months of the first quarter. Readers are advised that the commentary below compares results for the first two months of the first quarter 2013 to full fourth quarter 2012 results, unless indicated otherwise.
U.S. net oil-equivalent production decreased 11,000 barrels per day due to increased maintenance activity in the Gulf of Mexico. International net oil-equivalent production declined 21,000 barrels per day, largely reflecting the timing of cost recovery volumes under various production sharing contracts and weather-related downtime.
U.S. refinery crude-input volumes decreased by 145,000 barrels per day largely due to planned maintenance at the Pascagoula, Mississippi refinery. International refinery crude-input volumes declined 61,000 barrels per day, reflecting increased maintenance activities at multiple refineries.
