Eni’s 2Q16 earnings review

In 2Q16, Eni posted net earnings of -446 million euros, $498.3 million. After adjusting Eni’s net earnings for special items (impairments, derivatives effect, and other), inventory holding gains and losses, and transaction effects of discontinued operations, Eni’s net adjusted earnings stood at -290 million euros.

Eni’s (E) adjusted operating earnings from continuing operations stood at 188 million euros in 2Q16, as compared to about 1.8 billion euros in 2Q15. The steep decline in adjusted operating earnings was due to the sharp fall in earnings from the E&P (exploration and production) segment. Also, the G&P (gas and power) segment posted a loss, which was partially offset by a rise in the R&M (refining, marketing, and chemicals) segment’s adjusted operating earnings.

Eni’s peer Suncor (SU) also reported a loss in 2Q16. Chevron (CVX) and ExxonMobil’s (XOM) adjusted EPS fell by 42% and 59%, respectively, in 2Q16 over 2Q15. Total’s (TOT) earnings declined by 30% in 2Q16 over 2Q15. BP’s (BP) adjusted earnings fell to $730 million in 2Q16, as compared to $1.3 billion in 2Q15.
