For the fourth quarter 1999, Chevron reported net income of $809 million ($1.23 per share - diluted), compared with a fourth quarter 1998 net loss of $206 million ($0.31 per share - diluted). Excluding special items, fourth quarter 1999 earnings of $819 million ($1.24 per share - diluted) increased 63 percent over $503 million ($0.76 per share - diluted) in fourth quarter 1998. The 1998 fourth quarter included a loss provision for the 1982 lawsuit against Gulf Oil by Cities Service, arising from events prior to the time of the Chevron-Gulf merger.

Foreign exchange losses included in 1999 net income were $38 million, compared with losses of $47 million in 1998. For the fourth quarter of 1999, foreign exchange gains were $10 million, compared with losses of $71 million in the 1998 fourth quarter.

Chairman and CEO Dave O'Reilly said, "Earnings for the fourth quarter and full year 1999 benefited from a rebound in crude oil prices that began last spring. Earnings were given a further boost by higher crude oil and natural gas production and lower unit operating expenses -- a result of the company's cost savings effort. Our initiatives to eliminate $500 million from our cost structure on a sustained basis have proven to be very successful.

"The higher crude oil and natural gas prices increased 1999 operational earnings in our exploration and production business by 80 percent," O'Reilly commented. "Average U.S. crude oil sales realizations for the year rose 41 percent, while our U.S. natural gas realizations rose 7 percent. Earnings were further bolstered by a 2 percent increase in oil and gas production worldwide, partly the result of our commitment to continue investment during the period of low oil prices in 1998 and the first half of 1999." O'Reilly also said the company added oil and gas reserves during the year that totaled approximately 105 percent of 1999 production -- the seventh consecutive year that Chevron has added more than 100 percent of the year's production in reserves.

O'Reilly continued, "In contrast to our producing operations, which benefited from higher oil and gas prices, worldwide refining and marketing businesses suffered from compressed margins, as higher raw material costs outpaced increases in refined products sales realizations. Downstream earnings in the United States were also lower because of operating problems at one of our West Coast refineries."

Expanding on his comments related to the company's successful cost-savings initiatives, O'Reilly said, "We significantly restructured our North American upstream and downstream companies, as well as our chemicals, pipeline and research businesses. We also reorganized our human resources and finance staffs, increased standardization of our information technology systems and made improvements in our procurement activities. In addition, we completed the sale of office real estate in the San Francisco Bay Area, Southern California and Houston, and also sold non-core U.S. upstream properties." The company also reported that by mid-2000, cost-savings initiatives undertaken during 1999 were expected to result in corporatewide staff reductions of approximately 3,500 employees.

O'Reilly added, "With the aid of strong second-half earnings, we ended the year on a high note. The company has a wealth of investment opportunities. We stayed the course and maintained a robust capital-spending program last year, while many others were cutting back. That decision gives us a distinct advantage today with the rebound in oil and gas prices. We have in place for 2000 a company structure and capital spending program that position us well for the improved industry environment we are experiencing."

O'Reilly highlighted a number of significant 1999 and early 2000 operating and strategic events for the company, including:

  • Upstream Acquisitions. Chevron made two acquisitions that will help sustain the company's growth in international exploration and production. The September acquisition of Petrolera Argentina San Jorge S. A., coupled with the recent award of rights to partner with Petrobras in a 50/50 exploration venture in two promising deepwater blocks offshore Brazil, were significant steps in our Latin America growth strategy. The March purchase of Rutherford-Moran Oil Corp. and the assumption of the operatorship of Block B8/32 provided an entry into the natural gas market in Southeast Asia. The company began new production rom the Benchamas Field offshore Thailand and announced new discoveries in prospects from both of these acquisitions.
  • Angola. In December, oil production started at the Chevron-operated, 31 percent-owned Kuito Field, Angola's first deep-water production from Block 14. After the recent successful completion of appraisal wells in the Benguela and Belize Fields in Block 14, options for the joint development of these areas are under study. The company also began production from the Banzala Field, in the Block 0 concession adjacent to Block 14. These developments help move Chevron closer to meeting its objective of boosting production from its Angolan operations to 600,000 barrels per day by 2001.
  • Nigeria. The company is taking an active role to eliminate flaring of natural gas from production facilities in Nigeria, mitigating the adverse environmental effects of the flaring and monetizing the extracted resource. Chevron was named Managing Sponsor of the West African Gas Pipeline, a joint venture among six energy companies to develop a 600-mile offshore pipeline that runs from gas producing and processing facilities in Nigeria to Ghana via Benin and Togo. Also, an agreement was signed with Sasol to create a new global joint venture for gas-to-liquids (GTL) technology. Preliminary design and engineering continue for a GTL facility in Nigeria that will be capable of converting natural gas into synthetic liquid fuels for further processing into commercial products.
  • Deepwater Gulf of Mexico. [these numbers were revised in a press release dated 1/28/2000] Chevron began producingfrom its first two deepwater projects in the Gulf of Mexico -- Genesis and Gemini. Grossoil-equivalent production from Genesis, operated and 57 percent-owned by Chevron, reached63,000 barrels per day by year-end. Gross oil-equivalent production from the 40percent-owned Gemini project reached 35,000 barrels per day. Evaluation of options isunder way to develop a third Gulf of Mexico deepwater project, Typhoon. Chevron is theoperator and 50 percent owner of Typhoon.
  • Caspian Sea Region. Gross liquids production from the Tengiz Field, 45percent-owned by Chevron, averaged 214,000 barrels per day in 1999, an increase of 14percent over 1998 average production. While expanding Tengiz production, employees ofTengizchevroil recently surpassed 6.2 million man-hours without a lost-time injury, aworld-class accomplishment. Construction of a pipeline by the Caspian Pipeline Consortium(CPC) continues on schedule. The pipeline will deliver crude oil from the Tengiz Field inKazakhstan to the Black Sea port of Novorossiysk and is scheduled for start-up inmid-2001. During 1999, CPC shareholders approved a $1.3 billion budget and work plan for2000 and awarded the contract for construction of new and refurbishment of existingRussian pump stations.
  • Canada. During 1999, a significant natural gas discovery (K-29) was made 16 milesnorthwest of Fort Liard, Northwest Territories, Canada. Plans are being developed for theconstruction of production and transportation facilities and additional wells to permitfirst production by May 2000. A second successful well (M-25) was completed in January2000 and is expected to begin producing in the fourth quarter 2000. Chevron is theoperator and has a 43 percent interest in both discoveries. In Alberta, Canada, Chevronacquired a 20 percent interest in the Athabasca Oil Sands project. Completion ofconstruction and start-up of the project is planned for late 2002 and represents along-term earnings growth opportunity with expected gross production of 155,000 barrelsper day.
  • Dynegy. Chevron's 28 percent-owned affiliate, Dynegy Inc., announced an agreementto merge with Illinova Corp., an energy services holding company in Illinois. Chevron willincrease its investment to maintain a comparable percentage ownership in the mergedcompany. The merger is expected to be completed soon and will accelerate Dynegy's growthin the power generation and marketing business.

Total revenues in 1999 were $36.6 billion, up 20 percent from $30.6 billion in 1998. Fourth quarter revenues of $11.0 billion were 51 percent higher than 1998 fourth quarter revenues of $7.3 billion. Revenues for the year increased primarily on sharply higher crude oil and refined product prices, as well as higher natural gas prices.

U.S. exploration and production earnings rose for the year and fourth quarter on highercrude oil and natural gas sales realizations. Annual 1999 earnings also benefited fromlower operating expenses.

For 1999, the company's average crude oil realizations of $16.11 per barrel were up 41percent from the prior year. In the fourth quarter, the average realizations were $21.64,more than double the realizations of the 1998 quarter. Average natural gas realizationsincreased 7 percent for the year to $2.16 per thousand cubic feet and 25 percent to $2.49per thousand cubic feet for the quarter.

Net liquids production for the year averaged 316,000 barrels per day, down 3 percent from325,000 barrels per day in 1998. Fourth quarter 1999 production averaged 324,000 barrelsper day, up 6 percent compared with the prior-year fourth quarter. Net natural gasproduction in 1999 averaged 1.639 billion cubic feet per day, down 6 percent from 1998.For the 1999 fourth quarter, natural gas production averaged 1.577 billion cubic feet perday, down from 1.661 billion in the year-earlier quarter. Overall, 1999 U.S.oil-equivalent production declined, reflecting normal field declines and asset sales,partially offset by new Gulf of Mexico production. Production in the 1998 periods wasadversely affected by a number of storms in the Gulf of Mexico, including HurricaneGeorges.

Special items in the fourth quarter and the full year 1999 primarily included charges forimpairment of properties in the Gulf of Mexico, environmental remediation and net costsassociated with the company's restructuring program. Special items in earlier 1999quarters included costs associated with a regulatory issue.

International exploration and production annual and quarterly earnings increased in1999, mainly the result of higher crude oil and natural gas prices.

For the full year, net liquids production increased 4 percent to 811,000 barrels per day.Production increases in Angola and Kazakhstan, combined with production from propertiesacquired during 1999 in Argentina and Thailand, offset declines in Australia, Indonesiaand Nigeria. Fourth quarter 1999 liquids production was 847,000 barrels per day, about thesame as the 1998 quarter. However, production in the quarter would have risen were it notfor the effect of a cost recovery mechanism in Indonesia that provides for the productionoperator to recover investment and operating costs with equivalent barrels of oil. As aresult of higher oil prices, significantly fewer barrels were required in 1999 to recovercosts than for the prior-year.

Net natural gas production increased 34 percent for the year to 874 million cubic feet perday in 1999 and 16 percent to 896 million cubic feet per day in the 1999 fourth quarter.Increases in net natural gas production for the year and quarter resulted from higherproduction in the United Kingdom, as well as new production from the properties acquiredin Thailand and Argentina.

For the tenth consecutive year, net production and proved reserves increased, reflectingthe company's success in growing its international upstream operations. In 1999, thecompany estimated it replaced 169 percent of its international oil and gas productionthrough additions to proved reserves. Significant reserve additions included approximately230 million barrels in Kazakhstan and 85 million barrels in Nigeria. Further productionincreases are expected in 2000 as new developments come on-stream in West Africa,expansion of Tengiz continues and the company realizes production for a full year from theacquired properties in Thailand and Argentina.

Special items in the 1999 fourth quarter net income included charges for asset write-downsand unfavorable prior-year tax adjustments. For the year, net income also included aspecial charge for the net cost of the company's restructuring program, offset by a gainfrom the sale of seismic data in Canada.

Earnings for 1999 included net foreign currency losses of $20 million, compared with gainsof $29 million in 1998. Earnings for the fourth quarter 1999 included foreign currencygains of $11 million, compared with losses of $2 million for the 1998 period. The annualchange reflected currency rate swings of the U.S. dollar relative to Australian andCanadian dollars, partially offset by a favorable effect from a Nigerian naira-basedobligation.

Annual and quarterly earnings for U.S. refining, marketing and transportation in 1999declined significantly. Lower refined product sales margins and adverse effects onearnings from incidents at U.S. refineries were partially offset by increases in refinedproducts sales volumes and the receipt of proceeds from business interruption insurance.

Refined product sales volumes increased by 5 percent to 1,302,000 barrels per day in 1999;fourth quarter 1999 sales volumes increased 7 percent over the corresponding 1998 periodto 1,294,000 barrels per day. The sales increases in 1999 included higher branded gasolinesales, which were up 3 percent and 5 percent for the quarter and full year, respectively.

For 1999, U.S. refined product sales realizations increased 20 percent to $26.86 perbarrel. Fourth quarter realizations were up 47 percent compared with the 1998 quarter to$31.14 per barrel. Sales margins declined, however, as material costs increased about 40percent and 85 percent for 1999 and the fourth quarter, respectively.

Fourth quarter 1999 net income included special charges arising from provisions forenvironmental remediation and the company's restructuring program, largely offset by aLIFO inventory gain. Special items for 1999 also included a gain from the sale of thecompany's interest in a pipeline and charges for restructuring and environmentalremediation recorded earlier in the year.

International refining, marketing and transportation operating earnings for the year --composed mainly of Chevron's interest in Caltex Corporation, its Canadian downstreamcompany and international shipping operations -- decreased as a result of lower margins.Fourth quarter 1999 losses declined, compared with the corresponding 1998 period. Resultsincluded foreign currency losses of $21 million and $6 million for the year and fourthquarter 1999, respectively. The comparable 1998 periods included foreign currency lossesof $69 million and $71 million, respectively.

Earnings in the fourth quarter 1999 included a special item for a LIFO inventory gain,mostly for Caltex operations. For the year 1999, earnings also included special chargesfor a loss on the sale of Caltex's investment in a Japanese refiner and the costs ofrestructurings, including staff reduction programs, essentially offset by a favorableCaltex prior-year tax adjustment.

Chevron's international shipping operations results declined as a result of lower freightrates, reflecting weaker demand for tonnage, and higher fuel costs. The company's Canadianrefining and marketing operations suffered from weak margins, as competitive pricerestraints prevented recovery of increases in material costs.

Caltex net income included the effects of special items, foreign currency losses, andlower-of-cost-or-market (LCM) inventory adjustments, as shown below.

After adjustments, Caltex incurred a loss of $35 million in 1999, a substantial declinerelative to 1998 on an adjusted basis. In the fourth quarter 1999, adjusted losses were$63 million, compared with adjusted earnings of $8 million in the 1998 quarter. Resultsfor Caltex declined due to weak sales margins in most of its areas of operations, ascompetitive pressures prevented refined product sales realizations from risingsufficiently to recover higher crude costs.

For international downstream in total, refined product sales volumes for the yearincreased to 902,000 barrels per day, compared with 798,000 barrels per day in 1998. Forthe fourth quarter 1999, sales volumes increased by 18 percent to 915,000 barrels per daycompared with the same period in 1998. Sales volumes, including trading sales, in 1999from Caltex operations increased 13 percent to 691,000 barrels per day and increased by 11percent in the fourth quarter 1999 to 722,000 barrels per day, compared with prior-yearperiods.

Earnings, excluding special items, for the company's coal operations declined $43million and $34 million for the year and fourth quarter, respectively. These reductionswere mainly the result of an absence of earnings for most of 1999 from an affiliate thatwas sold in the first quarter; lower sales tonnage and sales prices for the remaining coalbusiness; and adjustments during the year to the carrying value of these remainingoperations that were under active negotiation for sale. In the 1999 fourth quarter, as aresult of unsuccessful negotiations to sell the company's coal operations, finaladjustments were made to reduce the net carrying value of the assets, which are no longerheld for sale. Fourth quarter 1998 earnings, in contrast, benefited from the suspension ofdepreciation expense while the held-for-sale assets were actively being marketed toprospective buyers.

Special items for 1999 included a gain from the sale of an interest in an affiliate,partially offset by charges for asset write-downs.

Corporate and other net charges, excluding special items, increased by $214 million for1999 and $149 million in the 1999 fourth quarter, compared with the 1998 periods. For theyear, higher interest expense, lower interest income and less favorable corporate stateand federal income tax adjustments were the primary causes of the increase. In thequarter, these same factors -- offset partially by the reversal of the reserve recorded inthe first three quarters of 1999 for interest on for the Cities Service litigation -- ledto higher net charges.

Special items for the fourth quarter 1999 included a favorable adjustment to the reserverecorded in 1998 for the Cities Service case, gains associated with the sale of realestate and marketable securities, and favorable prior-year tax adjustments. These werepartially offset by special charges for restructuring costs and other items. Fourthquarter 1998 special charges included the major reserve for the Cities Service litigation,offset partially by favorable prior-year tax adjustments. Special items for the full yearincluded additional restructuring charges recorded earlier in the year, while 1998included additional favorable prior-year tax adjustments and proceeds from insurancesettlements related to environmental cost recovery claims.

Capital and Exploratory Expenditures

Capital and exploratory expenditures, including the company's share of affiliates'expenditures, were $6.112 billion for the year 1999, compared with $5.314 billion spent in1998. Fourth quarter expenditures were $1.331 billion and $1.499 billion in 1999 and 1998,respectively. Expenditures for worldwide exploration and production activities for theyear represented 75 percent of the company's annual expenditures, and included theacquisitions of Rutherford-Moran Oil Corp. and Petrolera Argentina San Jorge S.A.

The company recently announced its 2000 capital and exploratory budget of $5.2 billion.Approximately $3.6 billion of this funding will relate to exploration and productionproject, with about $2.3 billion earmarked for international upstream areas.
