(Reuters) – Exxon Mobil Corp (N:XOM) said on Thursday its third-quarter results would be buoyed by higher prices for crude oil after a historic collapse in the previous quarter as coronavirus-related lockdowns caused a dramatic plunge in demand.
Higher oil prices will help exploration and production earnings by $1.4 billion to $1.8 billion, compared with the second quarter, it said in a filing. However, weak gas prices will continue to weigh on the segment and could hurt earnings by as much as $500 million.
Lower demand for fuels would hurt refining margins by $200 million to $600 million, the company said. (https://
