Second-quarter earnings aftermath: The path forward 

Accounting charges proliferate
In a post financial crisis world, the second-quarter earnings season further documented the adverse impact of three consecutive quarters of weak global crude demand. While revenues and net earnings were expected to plunge on the heels of a 52% decrease in crude prices versus year-ago levels, we now observe that decreasing cost structures have become paramount in the oil and gas industry. The extremes in year-over-year prices have forced the industry to adopt aggressive cost-cutting measures. Moreover, cost structure adjustments in this new normal environment yields a new set of challenges for producers.

As 2009's second-quarter earnings season approaches, crude prices have retreated reflecting the sobering realities of the current economic environment. While economists and traders attempt to determine if the world's economy and equity markets have hit bottom and what that means for future oil prices, what is certain are the dramatic effects that crude price volatility has had on production, capital expenditure programs, cash flow, cost structures, and financing alternatives of participants in the energy value chain.
