NEW YORK, April 26, 2017 — Hess Corporation (NYSE: HES) today reported a net loss of $324 million, or $1.07 per common share, in the first quarter of 2017 compared with a net loss of $509 million, or $1.72 per common share, in the first quarter of 2016. The first quarter 2017 results were improved as higher realized crude oil selling prices and lower operating costs and exploration expenses more than offset the change in deferred income taxes and lower production volumes.

“Production momentum returns to our portfolio starting in the second half of 2017, underpinned by the Bakken, the North Malay Basin and Stampede developments, and offshore Guyana, one of the industry’s largest oil discoveries in the past 10 years,” Chief Executive Officer John Hess said. “With more than a decade of visible production growth, our company is well positioned to deliver compelling long-term value for our shareholders.”
