BP Q2 Earnings Report 2023

BP Q2FY23: The UK Oil Giant's Profit for the Quarter declined Steeply on the Back of Lower Oil and Gas Prices

BP for Q2FY23 reported a 69% YoY drop in profits i.e. underlying replacement cost profit, used as a proxy for net profit, of $2.6 billion as compared to the $8.5 billion it recorded in the same period last year. The drop in the net profit reflects significantly lower realized refining margins, a higher level of turnaround and maintenance activity and a weak oil trading result; lower oil and gas realizations; and an exceptional gas marketing and trading result.
