Hess Corporation (NYSE: HES) reported a net loss of $339 million, or $1.12 per common share, in the third quarter of 2016 compared with a net loss of $279 million, or $0.98 per common share, in the third quarter of 2015. On an adjusted basis, the Corporation reported a net loss of $340 million, or $1.12 per common share, in the third quarter of 2016 compared with an adjusted net loss of $291 million, or $1.03 per common share, in the prior-year quarter. Third quarter 2016 after-tax results reflect lower production and realized selling prices 1 compared with the third quarter of 2015, as well as lower operating costs and depreciation, depletion and amortization expenses.

“Our company continues to take steps to maintain a strong balance sheet and materially reduce our spending,” Chief Executive Officer John Hess said. “We also are investing in growth projects including the world-class Liza oil discovery in Guyana that we believe will create significant value for our shareholders. Based on the positive results of the Liza-3 well, we now expect Liza to be at the upper end of the previously announced estimated recoverable resources range of 800 million to 1.4 billion barrels of oil equivalent.”
