Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 8/1/2022, Location: North America

CVR Energy, Inc. announced net income of $165 million, or $1.64 per diluted share, on net sales of $3.1 billion for the second quarter of 2022, compared to a net loss of $6 million, or 6 cents per diluted share, on net sales of $1.8 billion for the second quarter of 2021. Second quarter 2022 EBITDA was $401 million, compared to second quarter 2021 EBITDA of $102 million.

“CVR Energy’s second quarter 2022 results were driven by higher group diesel crack spreads and higher nitrogen-based fertilizer pricing, offset somewhat by lower refining throughput volumes due to the Wynnewood refinery’s planned turnaround and conversion of its hydrocracker to renewable diesel service, lower fertilizer sales volumes and a legal accrual in our corporate segment,” said Dave Lamp, CVR Energy’s Chief Executive Officer. “CVR Energy also announced a second quarter 2022 cash dividend of 40 cents per share as well as a special dividend of $2.60 per share while CVR Partners announced a cash distribution of $10.05 per common unit for the 2022 second quarter.”

Petroleum
The Petroleum Segment reported second quarter 2022 operating income of $297 million on net sales of $2.9 billion, compared to an operating loss of $20 million on net sales of $1.6 billion in the second quarter of 2021.

Refining margin per total throughput barrel was $26.10 in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $6.72 during the same period in 2021. The increase in refining margin of $345 million was primarily due to an increase in product crack spreads. The Group 3 2-1-1 crack spread increased by $29.35 per barrel relative to the second quarter of 2021, driven by tight inventory levels and supply concerns due to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict. The Petroleum Segment recognized costs to comply with the Renewable Fuel Standard (“RFS”) of $102 million, or $5.55 per throughput barrel, which excludes the RINs revaluation impact of $51 million, or $2.79 per total throughput barrel, for the second quarter of 2022. This is compared to RFS compliance costs of $115 million, or $5.85 per throughput barrel, which excludes the RINs revaluation impact of $58 million, or $2.92 per total throughput barrel, for the second quarter of 2021. The decrease in RFS compliance costs in 2022 was primarily related to a lower renewable volume obligation (“RVO”) for the second quarter of 2022 compared to the 2021 period. The decrease in RINs revaluation in 2022 was a result of decreased RIN prices for the current period and the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) revising the 2020 RVO and finalizing the 2021 and 2022 RVOs. Offsetting these impacts for the second quarter of 2022, throughput volumes declined by 15,380 barrels per day (“bpd”) due to the completion of the planned turnaround at the Wynnewood refinery in early April 2022 and the conversion of the Wynnewood hydrocracker to renewable diesel service. The Petroleum Segment also recognized a second quarter 2022 derivative net loss of $61 million, or $3.35 per total throughput barrel, compared to a derivative loss of $2 million, or 9 cents per total throughput barrel, for the second quarter of 2021. Included in this derivative net loss for the second quarter of 2022 was a $22 million unrealized loss due to Group 3 diesel crack swaps, compared to a $37 million unrealized gain for the second quarter of 2021. Further, crude oil prices rose during the quarter, which led to a favorable inventory valuation impact of $37 million, or $2.02 per total throughput barrel, compared to a favorable inventory valuation impact of $36 million, or $1.81 per total throughput barrel, during the second quarter of 2021.

Second quarter 2022 combined total throughput was approximately 201,000 bpd, compared to approximately 217,000 bpd of combined total throughput for the second quarter of 2021. This decrease was due to the completion of the planned turnaround at the Wynnewood refinery in early April 2022 and the conversion of the Wynnewood hydrocracker to renewable diesel service.

Nitrogen Fertilizer
The Nitrogen Fertilizer Segment reported operating income of $126 million on net sales of $244 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared to operating income of $30 million on net sales of $138 million for the second quarter of 2021.

Second quarter 2022 average realized gate prices for urea ammonia nitrate (“UAN”) showed an improvement over the prior year, up 134 percent to $555 per ton, and ammonia was up 193 percent over the prior year to $1,182 per ton. Average realized gate prices for UAN and ammonia were $237 and $403 per ton, respectively, for the second quarter of 2021.

CVR Partners, LP’s (“CVR Partners”) fertilizer facilities produced a combined 193,000 tons of ammonia during the second quarter of 2022, of which 50,000 net tons were available for sale while the rest was upgraded to other fertilizer products, including 331,000 tons of UAN. During the second quarter 2021, the fertilizer facilities produced 217,000 tons of ammonia, of which 70,000 net tons were available for sale while the remainder was upgraded to other fertilizer products, including 334,000 tons of UAN.

Corporate and Other
The Company reported an income tax expense of $66 million, or 21.5 percent of income before income taxes, for the three months ended June 30, 2022, as compared to an income tax benefit of $6 million, or 78.4 percent of loss before income taxes, for the three months ended June 30, 2021. The fluctuation in income tax was due primarily to changes in pretax earnings and earnings attributable to noncontrolling interest. The fluctuation in effective income tax rate was due primarily to changes in pretax earnings, earnings attributable to noncontrolling interest and a discrete tax benefit recorded in June 2021 for decreases in state income tax rates.

The renewable diesel unit at the Wynnewood refinery successfully began operations in mid-April, with total vegetable oil throughputs for the quarter averaging approximately 3,100 barrels per day.

Cash, Debt and Dividend
Consolidated cash and cash equivalents were $893 million at June 30, 2022, an increase of $383 million from December 31, 2021. Consolidated total debt and finance lease obligations were $1.6 billion at June 30, 2022, including $547 million held by the Nitrogen Fertilizer Segment.

On June 30, 2022, CVR Refining, LP and certain of its subsidiaries entered into Amendment No. 3 to the Amended and Restated ABL Credit Agreement, dated December 20, 2012 (the “Amendment,” and collectively, the “Petroleum ABL”).
