Main elements impacting the quarter aggregates

  • Hydrocarbon production is expected at nearly 2.5 Mboe/d this quarter, down about 50 kboe/d compared to the previous quarter mainly due to planned maintenance in the North Sea. Exploration & Production results are expected to be in line with the evolution of the environment.
  • Despite the expected significant impact of a less favorable environment on results from the Integrated LNG segment, illustrated by an average LNG price near 10 $/Mbtu, cash flow should remain high thanks to high margins captured in 2022 for 2023 deliveries.
  • Integrated Power results are expected to be above $400 million, higher than previous quarter.
  • Downstream results are expected to be in line with the decrease in refining margins.
  • A working capital release is expected, which should provide a tailwind to cash flow.
