In Q4, adjusted earnings more-than-quadrupled year-over-year to $4.87 per share, surpassing analysts’ estimate of $2.76 per share. The bottom-line was helped by a 33% quarter-over-quarter improvement in midstream pre-tax income to $379 million.

Meanwhile, Q4 revenue of $29.84 billion, missed the street consensus of $30.05 billion.

Shares of the energy giant have declined 26% from its 52-week high achieved in July.

CEO Greg Garland said, “Our Midstream results reflect growth from value-enhancing capital projects completed over the past two years. CPChem achieved full operations at its new U.S. Gulf Coast petrochemical assets, contributing to increased cash distributions.”

Q4 refining pre-tax income was $2 billion, compared with $1.2 billion in the third quarter, which was driven by the Central Corridor and Gulf Coast regions.

The company added that it returned $864 million to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases during the fourth quarter.

During the last reported quarter, PSX shares gained about 4% after delivering record earnings on strong revenue growth.
