Conoco and Phillips 66 announced on November 18, 2001 that their boards of directors had unanimously approved a definitive agreement for a "merger of equals". The merged company, ConocoPhillips, became the third-largest integrated U.S. energy company based on market capitalization and oil and gas reserves and production. On November 11, 2011 ConocoPhillips announced that Phillips 66 would be the name of a new independent oil and gasoline refining and marketing firm, created as ConocoPhillips split into two companies. ConocoPhillips kept the current name of the company and concentrated on oil exploration and production side while Phillips 66 included refining, marketing, midstream, and chemical portions of the company.

The 587 foot tall Mammoet PTC 140 crane, seen here from North First Street, towers over the Refinery Complex in Ponca City. The supercrane was used to move two new 232 ton coker reactor units within the refinery on September 29, 2013. Phillips was willing to invest $70 million in the two new coker reactor units because the Ponca City Refinery is one of the best run, safest, and most profitable of Phillips' fifteen worldwide refineries and Garland wants the refinery in Ponca City to continue to run smoothly and profitably. This photograph of the supercrane in Ponca City was taken from almost two miles away from the crane. Photo: Hugh Pickens All Rights Reserved.

Phillips Capital Programs

Capital Program for Refining and Marketing Business Segment. Greg Garland told security analysts at the Credit Suisse Global Energy Summit on February 12, 2014 that Phillips wants to try to hold sustaining capital in the Refining Business Segment to depreciation or less, or about $700 million a year. "We've got about a $1 billion program in 2014. So we've got about $300 million of high return, quick hit, fast payout projects that we're going to do. These are 40% type return projects. So these are the, what I would call, is a value accretive project that we're going to do in refining. Around export facilities, increasing yields, it's around incremental investments to process more light sweet crude. It's around capturing more LPG streams and upgrading the value of LPG streams."[1] Graphic from Phillips Presentation to USB Global Oil and Gas Conference May 21, 2013.
Capital Program for Midstream Business Segment. Phillips reported on December 6, 2013 that they plan to invest $2.167 Billion in 2014 in their Midstream Business Segment including $1.417 in direct investment and $0.750 Billion in investment with affiliate groups. Phillips expects to begin construction of a 100,000 barrel-per-day NGL fractionator and a 4.4 million-barrel-per-month liquefied petroleum gas export terminal on the U.S. Gulf Coast. In addition, several rail offloading facilities and other crude handling projects will increase the company’s access to advantaged refining feedstocks. Phillips 66 Transportation is also developing pipeline expansion and connection projects that will grow capacity and allow for greater refined product exports.[2] Graphic from Phillips Presentation to USB Global Oil and Gas Conference May 21, 2013.
Capital Program for Chemical Business Segment. Phillips reported on December 6, 2013 that they plan to invest $1.0 Billion in 2014 in their Refining and Marketing Business Segment down from $1.149 in 2013. Approximately 70 percent of the investment will be for sustaining capital related to reliability and maintenance, safety and environmental projects, including those to comply with Tier 3 emission standards. Other Refining capital investments will be directed toward relatively small, high-return projects, primarily to enhance use of advantaged crudes, as well as to improve product yields, increase energy efficiency and expand export capability.[3] Graphic from Phillips Presentation to USB Global Oil and Gas Conference May 21, 2013.

October 12, 2015: Phillips Capital Program for 2016

Phillips 66 announced on October 12, 2015 that Phillips 2016 capital budget will be $3.6 billion, excluding Phillips 66 Partners’ capital program. The board of directors of Phillips 66 also approved a $2.0 billion increase to the company’s share repurchase program. “The 2016 capital budget will fund Midstream growth and enhance returns in Refining,” said chairman and CEO Greg Garland. “Cash from operating activities, our MLP and a strong balance sheet allow us to fund business growth while returning capital to shareholders.”

Capital spending plans for 2016 for Phillips 66 Partners and for self-funded joint ventures DCP Midstream, Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, and WRB Refining will be announced later this year.

“Shareholder distributions are important to value creation,” said Garland. “During 2016, we plan to increase regular dividends while continuing to buy back PSX shares. Since 2012, we have increased quarterly dividends by 180 percent while reducing share count by close to 15 percent.”

The Phillips 66 Board of Directors has authorized an additional $2 billion for share repurchase, bringing total authorizations to $9 billion. Shares will be repurchased from time to time in the open market at the company’s discretion, subject to market conditions and other factors, and in accordance with applicable regulatory requirements.

We remain committed to returning capital to shareholders through dividend growth and our share repurchase program. During the year we increased our dividend 28 percent, and through Sept. 30, 2014, we returned $3.9 billion of capital to shareholders through dividends, share repurchases and the PSPI exchange. We expect double-digit increases in dividends for the next two years, and $2.6 billion remained available at the end of the third quarter under our share repurchase authorization. Our capital structure and financial flexibility allow us to fund shareholder distributions while investing in the growth of our businesses, even in this lower commodity price environment. Sources of capital include our strong balance sheet, debt and equity issuances by our MLP, and operating cash flows from a high-returning portfolio of businesses."[8]

The fractionator is expected to come online in the third quarter of 2015, and the export terminal is expected to be operational in mid-2016.

Phillips Capital Program for 2013

Phillips reported on December 13, 2012 that they had hosted their inaugural Analyst Meeting in New York to discuss their capital program of $3.7 billion for 2013, a 6 percent increase over the $3.5 billion capital spend for 2012, and how it will to enhance returns, deliver profitable growth and increase distributions to shareholders.[17]

Other initiatives to improve margins in the R&M Business Segment include increasing clean product yields in refining and controlling costs, targeting cost reductions and value capture in excess of $200 million before-tax by the end of 2013. “Our ability to capture advantaged feedstocks, coupled with the growing international demand for refined products, enables us to maintain high utilization rates and reduce costs per unit,” said Garland. “We will continue to primarily serve domestic markets and will explore opportunities to meet growing demand overseas. Export markets support a more positive balance of trade and promote economic benefits, and jobs, here in the United States.”[19]

Marketwatch reported on Decemeber 13, 2012 that Phillips will transfer transportation assets to a master limited partnership that will debut in the stock market in 2013.

Ponca: A Core Asset. Phillips CEO Greg Garland told members of the Bartlesville Chamber of Commerce on August 27, 2013 that the refinery at Ponca is a 'core asset' of Phillips 66. The refinery in Ponca City "is making very good money for us," Garland told his Bartlesville audience. Garland added that he expects gas demands in the U.S. to decline by 20 percent in the next 10 years, but that demand for refined products in South America and Africa will more than offset that decline.
