Total’s first-quarter earnings review

Total’s adjusted net operating earnings fell in its E&P (exploration and production) and Marketing segments. However, its iGRP (integrated gas, renewables, and power) and Refining segments’ earnings rose YoY in the quarter.

Total’s E&P adjusted operating earnings fell 5% over the first quarter of 2018 to $1.7 billion in the first quarter of 2019. Total’s E&P earnings fell due to a fall in its average liquids and gas realizations. However, its volumes rose 9% YoY in the first quarter of 2019 led by upstream project startups and ramp-ups.

Total’s adjusted operating earnings in its Refining segment rose from $720 million in the first quarter of 2018 to $756 million in the first quarter of 2019 due to higher refinery throughput and better margins. Total’s European Refining variable cost margin rose 11% YoY in the first quarter of 2019.
