08:06 EDTXOMExxon Mobil reports Q4 oil-equivalent production up 4.8%
Upstream earnings were $857M, down $4.6B from the fourth quarter of 2014. Lower liquids and gas realizations decreased earnings by $3.7B, while volume and mix effects increased earnings by $100M, benefiting from new developments. All other items, including the absence of both the prior year U.S. deferred income tax effects and recognition of a favorable arbitration ruling for expropriated Venezuela assets, decreased earnings by $960M. On an oil-equivalent basis, production increased 4.8% from the fourth quarter of 2014. Liquids production totaled 2.5M barrels per day, up 299,000 barrels per day. Project ramp-up, work programs and entitlement effects were partly offset by field decline.

ExxonMobil completed six major Upstream projects during the year and achieved its full-year plan to produce 4.1M oil-equivalent barrels per day. These new developments in Canada, Indonesia, Norway, the United States and West Africa added 300,000 oil-equivalent barrels per day of working interest production capacity.

07:17 EDTBP, XOMIran still struggling to finalize oil drilling contract terms, WSJ says
Iran is still having difficulty finalizing terms under which foreign energy companies can drill for oil there, the Wall Street Journal reports. Iranian oil officials canceled a conference scheduled for this month in London where new contracts for Western companies were supposed to be presented, with official blaming the cancellations on the inability to secure enough U.K. visas for the event, the report says. Another reason for the cancellation are conservative factions thinking that the contracts drawn up by president Hassan Rouhani's oil ministry are too generous to foreign entities, the report says, citing people familiar with the matter. Publicly traded companies in the space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Exxon Mobil (XOM), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). Reference Link
