The company was successful in strategically repositioning its portfolio and achieving its 2010 operating targets. Cash flow was $3.1 billion, down 23% from 2009, due to higher cash taxes in 2010 and lower cash proceeds from financial instruments. Net income was $648 million, a 48% increase from the previous year due to higher commodity prices, improved operating performance and non-cash gains on derivatives.
