The current COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented conditions for businesses, their employees, customers, and the communities they serve. Imperial stands with all Canadians – individuals and businesses – that have met the challenges posed by these difficult times, and is working diligently to continue to supply products essential to society’s well-being.

“Imperial is taking the necessary steps to help ensure the health and safety of employees and the ongoing integrity of our operations during these quickly-evolving and difficult times,” said Brad Corson, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “Imperial is well-positioned to weather the current business environment, and emerge stronger when conditions improve, drawing on the resilience of our integrated business, our high-quality asset portfolio, our strong financial position, and our unwavering focus on long-term value,” said Corson. “I would like to take this opportunity to recognize the work of all individuals on the front lines of the COVID-19 response, in particular the country’s health care responders and all those supporting essential services.”

Imperial recorded an estimated net loss of $188 million in the first quarter of 2020, primarily driven by lower realizations in the Upstream and non-cash charges of $301 million, mainly associated with the revaluation of the company’s inventory in line with depressed crude prices at the end of the quarter. The strength of Imperial’s integrated business model was evident in the quarter, with the Downstream delivering robust financial results.

Operational performance in the quarter was highlighted by strong Upstream volumes of 419,000 gross oil-equivalent barrels per day. This result was driven by Kearl, which achieved its best-ever first quarter total gross production of 226,000 barrels per day, up from 180,000 barrels per day in the first quarter of 2019. “Kearl achieved an impressive average production of 248,000 barrels per day in March. This demonstrates the positive production and reliability improvements brought by the supplemental crushers now in operation at the site,” said Corson.

In the Downstream, refinery throughput averaged 383,000 barrels per day in the first quarter of 2020, up 62,000 barrels per day from the fourth quarter of 2019, driven by lower refinery turnaround activities and record first-quarter throughput at the Strathcona refinery.

As the impact of the pandemic and lower commodity prices manifested themselves later in the quarter, Imperial took steps to reduce its 2020 spending levels with capital spending reductions of $500 million versus prior guidance and expense reductions of $500 million compared to 2019 levels. These adjustments focus on efficiencies and pacing of ongoing work and projects, consistent with safe and reliable operations in the current environment. Nonetheless, as discussed in further detail in the ‘Current economic conditions’ section of this document, the near-term impact of COVID-19 and the current business environment is expected to result in continued negative impacts on Imperial’s Upstream production, Downstream refinery utilization and product sales. While the magnitude of these impacts is highly uncertain, Imperial’s scenario planning approach is ensuring that it is prepared to respond to a broad range of potential outcomes.

Imperial ended the first quarter with $1.4 billion in cash on hand, and strong liquidity. This morning, the board declared a second quarter dividend of 22 cents per share. “Our resilient business model and strong long-term outlook support Imperial’s priority of paying a reliable dividend to our shareholders as we have done over many years,” said Corson.

First quarter highlights

  • Net loss of $188 million or $0.25 per share on a diluted basis, compared to net income of $293 million or $0.38 per share in the first quarter of 2019, primarily driven by lower realizations in the Upstream and non-cash charges of $301 million, mainly associated with the revaluation of the company’s crude inventory at market prices.
  • Cash generated from operating activities was $423 million, compared to $1,003 million in the first quarter of 2019, mainly due to lower realizations in the Upstream and unfavourable working capital impacts.
  • Capital and exploration expenditures totalled $331 million, compared with $529 million in the first quarter of 2019, mainly due to reduced spending on the Aspen project and completion of the Kearl supplemental crushers project. As announced on March 31, the company identified opportunities to reduce spending in the near-term, to focus on low capital, high-value initiatives, resulting in an updated capital outlook of $1.1 billion to $1.2 billion for 2020, compared to an original guidance of $1.6 billion to $1.7 billion.
  • The company returned $438 million to shareholders in the first quarter of 2020, including $164 million in dividends and $274 million in share purchases. In light of the current industry environment, Imperial suspended share purchases under its existing normal course issuer bid effective April 1, 2020.
  • Production averaged 419,000 gross oil-equivalent barrels per day, up from 388,000 barrels per day in the same period of 2019, primarily driven by record first quarter performance at Kearl.
  • Total gross bitumen production at Kearl averaged 226,000 barrels per day (160,000 barrels Imperial’s share), up from 180,000 barrels per day (127,000 barrels Imperial’s share) in the first quarter of 2019. Higher production was mainly due to the ramp-up of the supplemental crushing facilities through the first quarter of 2020.
  • Gross bitumen production at Cold Lake averaged 140,000 barrels per day, compared to 145,000 barrels per day in the same period of 2019, consistent with prior guidance.
  • The company’s share of gross production from Syncrude averaged 73,000 barrels per day, compared to 78,000 barrels per day in the same period of 2019. Syncrude production was impacted by unplanned maintenance which was partially completed in the quarter, with the remainder to be completed in the second quarter.
  • Shipments through the Edmonton rail terminal averaged 97,000 barrels per day in the first quarter of 2020, up from 53,000 barrels per day in the fourth quarter of 2019. Shipments peaked in February, and declined toward the end of the quarter.
  • Refinery throughput averaged 383,000 barrels per day, unchanged from the first quarter of 2019, with Strathcona refinery achieving record first quarter refinery throughput and asphalt production.
  • Petroleum product sales were 462,000 barrels per day, compared to 477,000 barrels per day in the first quarter of 2019. Lower petroleum product sales were mainly due to reduced demand in March from the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Chemical earnings were $21 million in the quarter, compared to $34 million in the first quarter of 2019.
  • Imperial released sustainability report. The report provides enhanced disclosure and addresses environmental, social and governance areas of focus for the company, including information on advanced technologies that could reduce greenhouse gas emissions intensity by about 25 percent to 90 percent for new oil sands production.

First quarter 2020 vs. first quarter 2019

The company recorded a net loss of $188 million or $0.25 per share on a diluted basis in the first quarter of 2020, compared to net income of $293 million or $0.38 per share in the same period of 2019. Due to a significant decline in commodity prices at the end of March, first quarter 2020 results include non-cash charges of $281 million associated with the revaluation of the company’s inventory and $20 million associated with a goodwill impairment.

Upstream recorded a net loss of $608 million in the first quarter of 2020, compared to net income of $58 million in the same period of 2019, reflecting non-cash charges of $229 million associated with the revaluation of the company’s inventory and $20 million associated with a goodwill impairment. Results were also negatively impacted by lower crude oil realizations of about $630 million, partially offset by lower royalties of about $110 million and favourable foreign exchange effects of about $50 million.

West Texas Intermediate (WTI) averaged US$45.78 per barrel in the first quarter of 2020, down from US$54.90 per barrel in the same quarter of 2019. Western Canada Select (WCS) averaged US$25.60 per barrel and US$42.44 per barrel for the same periods. The WTI / WCS differential widened during the first quarter of 2020 to average approximately US$20 per barrel for the quarter, compared to around US$12 per barrel in the same period of 2019.

The Canadian dollar averaged US$0.74 in the first quarter of 2020, a decrease of US$0.01 from the first quarter of 2019.

Imperial’s average Canadian dollar realizations for bitumen decreased in the quarter, primarily due to a decrease in WCS. Bitumen realizations averaged $18.08 per barrel in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $48.85 per barrel in the first quarter of 2019. The company’s average Canadian dollar realizations for synthetic crude decreased generally in line with WTI, adjusted for changes in exchange rates and transportation costs. Synthetic crude realizations averaged $58.94 per barrel in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $69.34 per barrel in the same period of 2019.

Total gross production of Kearl bitumen averaged 226,000 barrels per day in the first quarter (160,000 barrels Imperial’s share), up from 180,000 barrels per day (127,000 barrels Imperial’s share) in the first quarter of 2019. Higher production was mainly due to the ramp-up of the supplemental crushing facilities through the first quarter of 2020.

Gross production of Cold Lake bitumen averaged 140,000 barrels per day in the first quarter, compared to 145,000 barrels per day in the same period of 2019.

The company's share of gross production from Syncrude averaged 73,000 barrels per day, compared to 78,000 barrels per day in the first quarter of 2019. Syncrude production was impacted by unplanned maintenance which was partially completed in the quarter, with the remainder to be completed in the second quarter.

Downstream net income was $402 million in the first quarter of 2020, up from $257 million in the same period of 2019. Improved results reflect higher margins of about $190 million and lower net impacts from reliability events of about $50 million, partially offset by lower sales volumes of about $50 million and a non-cash charge of $52 million associated with the revaluation of the company's inventory.

Refinery throughput averaged 383,000 barrels per day, unchanged from the first quarter of 2019. Capacity utilization was 91 percent in the first quarter of 2020 and 2019.

Petroleum product sales were 462,000 barrels per day, compared to 477,000 barrels per day in the first quarter of 2019. Lower petroleum product sales were mainly due to reduced demand in March from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chemical net income was $21 million in the first quarter, compared to net income of $34 million from the same quarter of 2019.

Corporate and other expenses were $3 million in the first quarter, compared to $56 million in the same period of 2019, mainly due to lower share-based compensation charges.

Cash flow generated from operating activities was $423 million in the first quarter, compared with $1,003 million in the corresponding period in 2019, primarily reflecting lower realizations in the Upstream and unfavourable working capital impacts.

Investing activities used net cash of $308 million in the first quarter, compared with $463 million used in the same period of 2019, primarily reflecting lower additions to property, plant and equipment.

Cash used in financing activities was $445 million in the first quarter, compared with $517 million used in the first quarter of 2019. Dividends paid in the first quarter of 2020 were $164 million. The per share dividend paid in the first quarter was $0.22, up from $0.19 in the same period of 2019. During the first quarter, the company, under its share purchase program, purchased about 9.8 million shares for $274 million, including shares purchased from Exxon Mobil Corporation. In the first quarter of 2019, the company purchased about 10 million shares for $361 million.

The company’s cash balance was $1,388 million at March 31, 2020, versus $1,011 million at the end of first quarter 2019.

On March 31, 2020, the company announced by news release the suspension of its share purchase program effective April 1, 2020. The company purchased 28,697,514 common shares out of the 38,211,086 common shares allowable under the existing normal course issuer bid set to expire on June 26, 2020, including shares purchased from Exxon Mobil Corporation. Purchase plans may be modified at any time without prior notice.

Effective January 1, 2020, Imperial adopted the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s update, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326), as amended. The adoption of this update did not have a material impact on the company’s financial statements, and the cumulative effect of adoption was de minimis.

Key financial and operating data follow.

Current economic conditions

During the first quarter of 2020, the balance of supply and demand for petroleum and petrochemical products experienced two significant disruptive effects. On the demand side, the COVID-19 pandemic spread rapidly across Canada and the world resulting in substantial reductions in consumer and business activity and significantly reduced local and global demand for crude oil, natural gas, and petroleum products. This reduction in demand coincided with announcements of increased production in certain key oil producing countries which led to sharp declines in prices for crude oil, natural gas, and petroleum products. Against this backdrop of economic uncertainty, global financial markets have experienced significant volatility and disruption, which at times have negatively impacted the efficiency of credit markets and available pools of liquidity.

In response to these conditions, the company announced significant reductions in 2020 capital and operating expense spending plans. Capital and exploration expenditures for 2020 are now expected to be $1.1 billion to $1.2 billion, compared to the previously announced $1.6 billion to $1.7 billion. In addition, Imperial has identified opportunities to reduce 2020 operating expenses by $500 million compared to 2019 levels.

At the end of March 31, 2020, the company’s cash balance was $1.4 billion. Imperial’s financial strength represents a competitive advantage of strategic importance. While internally generated funds cover the majority of its financial requirements, Imperial may extend its commercial paper program, access capital markets to issue long-term debt, or draw on unused lines of credit to strengthen its liquidity.

The effect of COVID-19 and the current business environment on supply and demand patterns is expected to result in negative impacts on Imperial’s financial and operating results over the near-term. Should industry conditions near the end of the first quarter persist for an extended period into the future, the company expects lower realized prices for its products to result in reduced earnings and cash generated from operations compared to previous periods. In response to the current economic conditions, the company plans to operate certain assets at reduced rates in the second quarter of 2020. The company has advanced the start and extended the duration of Kearl’s planned turnaround in an effort to reduce on-site staffing levels and to better balance near-term production with demand. The turnaround will now begin in early May and will continue until late June, and is expected to reduce Kearl’s total gross production to average approximately 150,000 barrels per day for the second quarter of 2020. Regarding Syncrude, the coker turnaround activities, which had previously been deferred to the third quarter, will be advanced and begin in the second quarter. As a result, it is expected that Syncrude’s production will be reduced to average approximately 45,000 to 50,000 barrels per day (Imperial’s share) for the second quarter of 2020. Additionally, the company continues to evaluate the timing and scope of other planned turnaround activities across its operations. These activities will be managed to ensure the health and safety of site personnel. Refinery utilization rates and petroleum product sales were reduced at the end of the first quarter of 2020, driven by the significant decline in demand for petroleum products in Canada, and are expected to remain lower in the second quarter of 2020 compared to previous periods. However, the length and severity of decreased demand due to COVID-19 and the current business environment are highly uncertain, with the future supply and demand patterns inherently difficult to predict.

While the company’s view of long-term supply and demand fundamentals has not changed significantly, future reductions in the range of its long-term price outlooks could put a portion of its long-lived assets at risk for impairment. However, due to the inherent difficulty in predicting future commodity prices, and the relationship between industry prices and costs, it is not practicable to reasonably estimate the existence or range of any potential future impairment charges related to the company’s long-lived assets.

As disclosed in Imperial’s 2019 Form 10-K, low crude oil and natural gas prices can impact the company’s proved reserves as reported under U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules. If prices seen near the end of the first quarter persist for the remainder of the year, under the SEC definition of proved reserves, certain quantities of crude oil and natural gas may not qualify as proved reserves at year-end 2020. Since proved reserves estimates can be affected by a number of factors including completion of development projects, reservoir performance, regulatory approvals, government policies, consumer preferences, changes in the amount and timing of capital investments, royalty framework and significant changes in long-term oil and gas price levels, it is not practicable to reasonably estimate the range of any potential future revisions to the company’s proved reserves for year-end 2020 reporting.

The company has taken steps, in line with federal and provincial guidelines and restrictions, to limit the spread of COVID-19 among employees, contractors and the broader community, while also maintaining operations to ensure reliable supply of products to customers as a provider of essential services. Further measures have been implemented across the organization, including voluntary COVID-19 testing and modified work schedules at remote camp facilities. The company maintains robust business continuity plans, which have been activated to minimize the impact of COVID-19 on workforce productivity.
