BP plc (NYSE: BP) reported Q3 EPS of $0.30, $0.05 better than the analyst estimate of $0.25. Revenue for the quarter came in at $48.04 billion versus the consensus estimate of $50.51 billion.

BP’s third-quarter replacement cost (RC) profit was $1,661 million, compared with $1,234 million a year ago. After adjusting for a net gain for non-operating items of $949 million and net unfavourable fair value accounting effects of $221 million (both on a post-tax basis), underlying RC profit for the third quarter was $933 million, compared with $1,819 million for the same period in 2015. For the first nine months of 2016 the RC loss was $1,071 million, compared with a loss of $2,929 million for the first nine months of 2015. Both periods were impacted by charges associated with the Deepwater Horizon accident and oil spill following the settlement of federal, state and local government claims in 2015 and additional provisions this year, when a reliable estimate for all the remaining material liabilities was determined. After adjusting for a net charge for non-operating items of $2,648 million and net unfavourable fair value accounting effects of $608 million (both on a post-tax basis), underlying RC profit for the nine months was $2,185 million, compared with $5,709 million for the same period in 2015.
