ExxonMobil announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2015, according to a press release published on the company’s website. The company’s earnings fell from $8.8 billion a year earlier by 52% to $4.2 billion in the second quarter. Earnings per share, meanwhile, dropped by 51% year over year to $1. Oil-equivalent output rose 3.6% from the same period of 2014 while liquids rose 11.9%. Natural gas production, meanwhile, came down 5.8%.

Upstream earnings dropped from $5.9 billion in the same period of 2014 to $2 billion in the second quarter of this year. Downstream earnings, in contrast, were up $795 million on the year to reach $1.5 billion. The increase in downstream earnings was attributed to stronger margins. Chemical earnings, meanwhile, reached $1.2 billion in the April-June period, up $405 million year over year. The positive result in chemical earnings was attributed to stronger margins stemming from lower feedstock costs.

In the first half of 2015, meanwhile, earnings fell to $9.1 billion, down by 49% from the same period of the previous year. In addition, chemical earnings rose by $340 million year over year to reach $2.2 billion in the January-June period.
