"Second quarter earnings were strong, reflecting improved market conditions, combined with transformation benefits and merger synergies," said Mike Wirth, Chevron’s chairman and chief executive officer.

"Our free cash flow was the highest in two years due to solid operational and financial performance and lower capital spending," Wirth added. "We will resume share repurchases in the third quarter at an expected rate of $2-3 billion per year."

Chevron continued to exercise capital discipline with year-to-date capital spending down 32 percent from a year ago. The company recently sanctioned the Jansz-lo Compression project in Australia, which is expected to maintain an important source of clean-burning natural gas. GS Caltex, a 50 percent owned equity affiliate, also started up an olefins mixed-feed cracker and associated polyethylene unit at its Yeosu, South Korea refinery ahead of schedule and under budget.

In the second quarter, Chevron continued to pursue the development of renewable and lower carbon fuels. The company began to produce renewable diesel at its El Segundo, California refinery by co-processing bio-feedstock. The company also established its first branded compressed natural gas (CNG) station as part of its plan to sell renewable natural gas through more than 30 CNG stations in California by 2025. In addition, the company announced separate agreements to collaborate with Toyota Motor North America, Inc. and Cummins Inc. to advance its goal of building a commercially viable, large-scale hydrogen business.

UPSTREAM

Worldwide net oil-equivalent production was 3.13 million barrels per day in second quarter 2021, an increase of 5 percent from a year ago.

U.S. upstream operations earned $1.4 billion in second quarter 2021, compared with a loss of $2.1 billion a year earlier. The improvement was primarily due to higher crude oil realizations and the absence of second quarter 2020 charges for special items including impairments, write-offs and severance accruals. Higher crude oil production also contributed to the improvement between periods.

The company’s average sales price per barrel of crude oil and natural gas liquids was $54 in second quarter 2021, up from $19 a year earlier. The average sales price of natural gas was $2.16 per thousand cubic feet in second quarter 2021, up from $0.81 in last year’s second quarter.

Net oil-equivalent production of 1.14 million barrels per day in second quarter 2021 was up 145,000 barrels per day from a year earlier. The increase was due to an additional 227,000 barrels per day of production following the Noble Energy acquisition and lower production curtailments, partially offset by a 68,000 barrels per day decrease related to the Appalachian asset sale and lower production due to normal field declines. The net liquids component of oil-equivalent production in second quarter 2021 increased 15 percent to 857,000 barrels per day, and net natural gas production also increased 15 percent to 1.68 billion cubic feet per day, compared to last year’s second quarter.

International upstream operations earned $1.7 billion in second quarter 2021, compared with a loss of $4.0 billion a year ago. The increase in earnings was primarily due to the absence of second quarter 2020 special item charges and benefits including write-offs and impairments, severance charges, tax items and the gain on the Azerbaijan asset sale as well as higher current quarter crude oil realizations. Foreign currency effects had a favorable impact on earnings of $340 million between periods.

The average sales price for crude oil and natural gas liquids in second quarter 2021 was $62 per barrel, up from $21 a year earlier. The average sales price of natural gas was $4.92 per thousand cubic feet in the second quarter, up from $4.48 in last year’s second quarter.

Net oil-equivalent production of 1.99 million barrels per day in second quarter 2021 decreased slightly from second quarter 2020. Higher production of an additional 148,000 barrels per day following the Noble Energy acquisition and lower production curtailments were more than offset by unfavorable entitlement effects and operational impacts. The net liquids component of oil-equivalent production decreased 8 percent to 990,000 barrels per day in second quarter 2021, while net natural gas production of 5.99 billion cubic feet per day increased 8 percent, compared to last year's second quarter.

U.S. downstream operations reported earnings of $776 million in second quarter 2021, compared with a loss of $988 million a year earlier. The increase was mainly due to higher margins on refined product sales, higher earnings from the 50 percent-owned Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, higher sales volumes, and lower operating expenses, including the absence of second quarter 2020 severance accruals.

Refinery crude oil input in second quarter 2021 increased 65 percent to 956,000 barrels per day from the year-ago period, as the company increased refinery runs in response to higher demand and the improved refining margin environment.

Refined product sales of 1.16 million barrels per day were up 40 percent from the year-ago period, mainly due to higher gasoline and jet fuel demand as travel restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic eased.

International downstream operations reported earnings of $63 million in second quarter 2021, compared with a loss of $22 million a year earlier. The increase in earnings was largely due to the absence of second quarter 2020 severance accruals. Foreign currency effects had a favorable impact on earnings of $24 million between periods.

Refinery crude oil input of 580,000 barrels per day in second quarter 2021 decreased 2 percent from the year-ago period.

Refined product sales of 1.28 million barrels per day in second quarter 2021 increased 16 percent from the year-ago period, mainly due to higher gasoline, jet fuel and diesel demand.

Net charges in second quarter 2021 were $935 million, compared to $1.2 billion a year earlier. The decrease in net charges between periods was mainly due to the absence of second quarter 2020 severance accruals, partially offset by higher tax items and pension settlement costs. Foreign currency effects decreased net charges by $116 million between periods.

CASH FLOW FROM OPERATIONS

Cash flow from operations in the first six months of 2021 was $11.2 billion, compared with $4.8 billion in 2020. Excluding working capital effects, cash flow from operations in the first six months of 2021 was $12.2 billion, compared with $5.2 billion in 2020.

CAPITAL AND EXPLORATORY EXPENDITURES

Capital and exploratory expenditures in the first six months of 2021 were $5.3 billion, compared with $7.7 billion in 2020. The amounts included $1.5 billion in 2021 and $2.3 billion in 2020 for the company’s share of expenditures by affiliates, which did not require cash outlays by the company. Expenditures for upstream represented 84 percent of the company-wide total in 2021.

NOTICE

Chevron’s discussion of second quarter 2021 earnings with security analysts will take place on Friday, July 30, 2021, at 8:00 a.m. PT. A webcast of the meeting will be available in a listen-only mode to individual investors, media, and other interested parties on Chevron’s website at www.chevron.com under the "Investors" section. Prepared remarks for today’s call, additional financial and operating information and other complementary materials will be available prior to the call at approximately 3:15 a.m. PT and located under "Events and Presentations" in the "Investors" section on the Chevron website.

As used in this news release, the term "Chevron" and such terms as "the company," "the corporation," "our," "we," "us" and "its" may refer to Chevron Corporation, one or more of its consolidated subsidiaries, or to all of them taken as a whole. All of these terms are used for convenience only and are not intended as a precise description of any of the separate companies, each of which manages its own affairs.

Please visit Chevron’s website and Investor Relations page at www.chevron.com and www.chevron.com/investors, LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/company/chevron, Twitter: @Chevron, Facebook: www.facebook.com/chevron, and Instagram: www.instagram.com/chevron, where Chevron often discloses important information about the company, its business, and its results of operations.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures - This news release includes adjusted earnings/(loss), which reflect earnings or losses excluding significant non-operational items including impairment charges, write-offs, severance costs, Noble Energy acquisition costs, gains on asset sales, unusual tax items, effects of pension settlements and curtailments, foreign currency effects and other special items. During the first quarter of 2021, the Company updated its calculation of adjusted earnings to exclude pension settlement costs. The Company recognizes settlement gains or losses when the cost of all settlements for a plan during a year is greater than the sum of its service and interest costs during the year. By adjusting earnings to exclude pension settlement costs, the Company believes it removes non-operational costs that would otherwise obscure its underlying operating results. Adjusted earnings/(loss) for 2020 were recast to conform with the current presentation. We believe it is useful for investors to consider this measure in comparing the underlying performance of our business across periods. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss) as prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. A reconciliation to net income (loss) attributable to Chevron Corporation is shown in Attachment 5.

This news release also includes free cash flow and free cash flow excluding working capital. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less cash capital expenditures, and represents the cash available to creditors and investors after investing in the business. Free cash flow excluding working capital is defined as net cash provided by operating activities excluding working capital less cash capital expenditures and represents the cash available to creditors and investors after investing in the business excluding the timing impacts of working capital. The company believes these measures are useful to monitor the financial health of the company and its performance over time. A reconciliation of free cash flow and free cash flow excluding working capital are shown in Attachment 3.
