Suncor sinks as Q2 earnings fall short, Joslyn oil sands project scaled back


Suncor Energy (SU -2.3%) is sharply lower despite reporting Q2 earnings that rose 18% Y/Y but failed to meet analyst expectations.

SU took a $718M writeoff to account for its share in the Joslyn oil sands project, which was mothballed by partner Total earlier this year, wrote down the value of its Libyan assets by $297M, and booked a $223M charge for oil sands assets that no longer fit into its future plans.

SU cut its FY 2014 capital spending plan to C$6.8B from a previous target of C$7.8B in a bid to further reduce costs.

Q2 production totaled 518.4K boe/day, up 3.6% Y/Y; output from Alberta operations rose 37% to 378.8K boe/day due to less maintenance in the quarter and increasing production from its Firebag thermal oil sands operations.

Cash flow rose to $2.41B ($1.64/share) from $2.25B ($1.49/share).
