BG profits slip on weak prices
05 Feb 2016 09:09
Britain's BG Group, in its last results update before its takeover by Shell, has reported a 22% fall in fourth quarter core earnings to $1.43 billion as low energy prices ate into profits.
-
The large gas producer is set to become part of Shell on February 15.
-
BG said it took a hit in its oil and gas production and liquefied natural gas (LNG) segments from another roughly 20% fall in oil prices in the quarter.
-
A surge in production in Australia and Brazil, key growth areas that Shell has singled out to justify its takeover, helped BG beat its own yearly output target to 704,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
-
BG's prized LNG unit also delivered 63% more volumes in 2015 mainly thanks to the smooth ramp-up of its Queensland Curtis LNG export project.
-
The additional volumes were mostly absorbed by buyers in Asia, with the number of cargoes to the region rising 72% year-on-year to 208.
