  • Hess North Dakota Site
01.30.2019

Hess today reported a net loss of $4 million, or $0.05 per common share, in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to a net loss of $2,677 million, or $8.57 per common share, in the fourth quarter of 2017. On an adjusted basis, the Corporation reported a net loss of $77 million, or $0.31 per common share, in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared with an adjusted net loss of $304 million, or $1.01 per common share, in the prior-year quarter. Fourth quarter 2018 results benefitted from higher U.S. crude oil production, reduced operating costs, and lower depreciation, depletion and amortization expense, compared with the prior-year quarter.

“Our company enters 2019 with a great deal of momentum,” Chief Executive Officer John Hess said. “With our strong execution in 2018, our portfolio is well positioned to deliver approximately 20 percent compound annual cash flow growth and more than 10 percent compound annual production growth through 2025, with a portfolio breakeven of less than $40 per barrel Brent by 2025.”
