Chevron expects higher Q2 earnings
Chevron reported in its interim update that earnings for the second quarter 2014 are expected to be higher than first quarter 2014 as a result of gains on asset sales and an absence of impairments in the prior quarter.
Foreign exchange losses in the second quarter are expected to be higher than first quarter losses, the company said in a statement.
U.S. net oil-equivalent production was higher compared to the first quarter, primarily due to less maintenance activity in the Gulf of Mexico and increased production in the Permian Basin.
International net oil-equivalent production was lower as a result of planned turnaround activity in Kazakhstan, in addition to the shutdown of the LNG facility in Angola, the company added.
