Declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $1.07 per share on January 18
Returned $1.4 billion to stockholders through dividends and stock buybacks
Startup of the Diamond Green Diesel Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) project is now expected in the fourth quarter of 2024
Valero Energy Corporation (NYSE: VLO, “Valero”) today reported net income attributable to Valero stockholders of $1.2 billion, or $3.75 per share, for the first quarter of 2024, compared to $3.1 billion, or $8.29 per share, for the first quarter of 2023. Excluding the adjustments shown in the accompanying earnings release tables, adjusted net income attributable to Valero stockholders was $1.3 billion, or $3.82 per share, compared to $3.1 billion, or $8.27 per share, for the first quarter of 2023.

Refining
The Refining segment reported operating income of $1.7 billion for the first quarter of 2024, compared to $4.1 billion for the first quarter of 2023. Refining throughput volumes averaged 2.8 million barrels per day in the first quarter of 2024.

“We are pleased to report strong financial results for the first quarter despite heavy planned maintenance across our refining system,” said Lane Riggs, Valero’s Chief Executive Officer and President. “Our team’s ability to optimize and maximize throughput while undertaking maintenance activities illustrates the benefits from our long-standing commitment to safe and reliable operations.”

Renewable Diesel
The Renewable Diesel segment, which consists of the Diamond Green Diesel joint venture (DGD), reported $190 million of operating income for the first quarter of 2024, compared to $205 million for the first quarter of 2023. Segment sales volumes averaged 3.7 million gallons per day in the first quarter of 2024, which was 741 thousand gallons per day higher than the first quarter of 2023. The higher sales volumes were due to the impact of additional volumes from the DGD Port Arthur plant, which started up in the fourth quarter of 2022 and was in the process of ramping up production rates in the first quarter of 2023. Operating income in the first quarter of 2024 was lower than the first quarter of 2023 due to lower renewable diesel margin.

Ethanol
The Ethanol segment reported $10 million of operating income for the first quarter of 2024, compared to $39 million for the first quarter of 2023. Adjusted operating income was $39 million for the first quarter of 2024. Ethanol production volumes averaged 4.5 million gallons per day in the first quarter of 2024, which was 283 thousand gallons per day higher than the first quarter of 2023.

Corporate and Other
General and administrative expenses were $258 million in the first quarter of 2024, compared to $244 million in the first quarter of 2023. The effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2024 was 21 percent.

Investing and Financing Activities
Net cash provided by operating activities was $1.8 billion in the first quarter of 2024. Included in this amount was a $160 million unfavorable impact from working capital and $122 million of adjusted net cash provided by operating activities associated with the other joint venture member’s share of DGD. Excluding these items, adjusted net cash provided by operating activities was $1.9 billion in the first quarter of 2024.

Capital investments totaled $661 million in the first quarter of 2024, of which $563 million was for sustaining the business, including costs for turnarounds, catalysts and regulatory compliance. Excluding capital investments attributable to the other joint venture member’s share of DGD and other variable interest entities, capital investments attributable to Valero were $619 million.

Valero returned $1.4 billion to stockholders in the first quarter of 2024, of which $356 million was paid as dividends and $1.0 billion was for the purchase of approximately 6.6 million shares of common stock, resulting in a payout ratio of 74 percent of adjusted net cash provided by operating activities.

Valero defines payout ratio as the sum of dividends paid and the total cost of stock buybacks divided by net cash provided by operating activities adjusted for changes in working capital and DGD’s net cash provided by operating activities, excluding changes in its working capital, attributable to the other joint venture member’s share of DGD.

On January 18, Valero announced an increase of its quarterly cash dividend on common stock from $1.02 per share to $1.07 per share.

Liquidity and Financial Position
Valero repaid the $167 million outstanding principal balance of its 1.200% Senior Notes that matured on March 15, ending the first quarter of 2024 with $8.5 billion of total debt, $2.4 billion of finance lease obligations and $4.9 billion of cash and cash equivalents. The debt to capitalization ratio, net of cash and cash equivalents, was 17 percent as of March 31, 2024.

Strategic Update
The SAF project at the DGD Port Arthur plant is progressing ahead of schedule and is now expected to be operational in the fourth quarter of 2024, with a total cost of $315 million, half of which is attributable to Valero. The project is expected to give the plant the optionality to upgrade approximately 50 percent of its current 470 million gallon renewable diesel annual production capacity to SAF. With the completion of this project, DGD is expected to become one of the largest manufacturers of SAF in the world.

“We remain focused on the things that have been a hallmark of our strategy for over a decade – maintaining operating excellence, executing our projects well, discipline around capital investments, and our commitment to shareholder returns,” said Riggs.

Excluding capital investments attributable to the other joint venture member’s share of DGD, capital investments attributable to Valero were $352 million.

Valero returned $2.2 billion to stockholders in the third quarter of 2023, of which $360 million was paid as dividends and $1.8 billion was for the purchase of approximately 13 million shares of common stock, resulting in a payout ratio of 68 percent of adjusted net cash provided by operating activities.

Valero continues to target an annual payout ratio between 40 and 50 percent of adjusted net cash provided by operating activities. Valero defines payout ratio as the sum of dividends paid and the total cost of stock buybacks divided by net cash provided by operating activities adjusted for changes in working capital and DGD’s net cash provided by operating activities, excluding changes in its working capital, attributable to the other joint venture member’s share of DGD.

Liquidity and Financial Position

Valero ended the third quarter of 2023 with $9.2 billion of total debt, $2.3 billion of finance lease obligations and $5.8 billion of cash and cash equivalents. The debt to capitalization ratio, net of cash and cash equivalents, was 17 percent as of September 30, 2023.

Strategic Update

The Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) project at the DGD Port Arthur plant remains on schedule and is expected to be completed in 2025 and cost $315 million, with half of that attributable to Valero. The project is expected to give the plant the optionality to upgrade approximately 50 percent of its current 470 million gallon renewable diesel annual production capacity to SAF. With the completion of this project, DGD is expected to become one of the largest manufacturers of SAF in the world.

“While there are broader factors that may drive market volatility, we remain focused on things we can control,” said Riggs, “including operating efficiently in a safe, reliable and environmentally responsible manner, maintaining capital discipline by adhering to a minimum return threshold on growth projects, and honoring our commitment to shareholder returns.”

The Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) project at the DGD Port Arthur plant is expected to be completed in 2025 and is estimated to cost $315 million, with half of that attributable to Valero. The project is expected to give the plant the ability to upgrade approximately 50 percent of its current 470 million gallon annual renewable diesel production capacity to SAF, which is expected to make DGD one of the largest manufacturers of SAF in the world.

Segment sales volumes averaged 2.4 million gallons per day in the fourth quarter of 2022, which was 851 thousand gallons per day higher than the fourth quarter of 2021.

The DGD project adjacent to the Port Arthur refinery (DGD Port Arthur plant), which has a production capacity of 470 million gallons per year of renewable diesel and 20 million gallons per year of renewable naphtha, was commissioned and started up in the fourth quarter. The project was completed under budget and ahead of the original schedule. Total annual DGD production capacity is now approximately 1.2 billion gallons of renewable diesel and 50 million gallons of renewable naphtha.

Refinery optimization projects that are expected to reduce costs and improve margin capture are progressing on schedule. The Port Arthur Coker project is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2023 and to increase the refinery’s throughput capacity, while also improving turnaround efficiency.

BlackRock and Navigator’s carbon sequestration project is still expected to begin startup activities in late 2024. Valero expects to be the anchor shipper with eight of its ethanol plants connected to this system, which is expected to result in the production of a lower carbon intensity ethanol product that should significantly improve the margin profile and competitive positioning of the ethanol business.

“We continue to advance other low-carbon opportunities, such as sustainable aviation fuel, renewable hydrogen, and additional renewable naphtha and carbon sequestration projects,” said Gorder. “Our gated process helps ensure these projects meet our minimum return threshold.”

Conference Call

Valero’s senior management will hold a conference call at 10 a.m. ET today to discuss this earnings release and to provide an update on operations and strategy.

NOTES TO EARNINGS RELEASE TABLES


(a)

Under the Renewable Fuel Standard program, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is required to set annual quotas for the volume of renewable fuels that obligated parties, such as us, must blend into petroleum-based transportation fuels consumed in the U.S. The quotas are used to determine an obligated party’s renewable volume obligation (RVO). The EPA released a final rule on June 3, 2022 that, among other things, modified the volume standards for 2020 and, for the first time, established volume standards for 2021 and 2022.







In 2020, we recognized the cost of the RVO using the 2020 quotas set by the EPA at that time, and in 2021 and the three months ended March 31, 2022, we recognized the cost of the RVO using our estimates of the quotas. As a result of the final rule released by the EPA as noted above, we recognized a benefit of $104 million in June 2022 primarily related to the modification of the 2020 quotas. The impacts to the estimated cost of the RVO recognized by us in 2021 and the three months ended March 31, 2022 were not significant; however, there were impacts in the 2021 quarterly periods as follows: (i) benefit of $80 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021; (ii) benefit of $81 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021; (iii) benefit of $58 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021; and (iv) charge of $220 million related to the three months ended December 31, 2021, resulting in a charge of $1 million for the year ended December 31, 2021.





(b)

In mid-February 2021, many of our refineries and plants were impacted to varying extents by the severe cold, utility disruptions, and higher energy costs arising out of Winter Storm Uri. The higher energy costs resulted from an increase in the prices of natural gas and electricity that significantly exceeded rates that we consider normal, such as the average rates we incurred the month preceding the storm. As a result, our operating income for the year ended December 31, 2021 includes estimated excess energy costs of $579 million ($1.15 per share).







The above-mentioned pre-tax estimated excess energy charge is reflected in our statement of income line items and attributable to our reportable segments for the year ended December 31, 2021 as follows (in millions):

The estimated excess energy costs attributable to our Ethanol segment for the year ended December 31, 2021 affected that segment’s operating statistics of (i) operating expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization expenses) per gallon of production and (ii) adjusted operating income per gallon of production by $0.04 (see note (h) below).

(c)

Depreciation and amortization expense includes the following:






?

a gain of $23 million in the year ended December 31, 2022 on the sale of our ethanol plant located in Jefferson, Wisconsin (Jefferson ethanol plant); and






?

accelerated depreciation of $48 million in the year ended December 31, 2021 related to a change in the estimated useful life of our Jefferson ethanol plant.




(d)

Our ethanol plant located in Lakota, Iowa (Lakota ethanol plant) is configured to produce USP-grade ethanol, a higher grade ethanol suitable for hand sanitizer blending that has a higher market value than fuel-grade ethanol. During 2022, demand for USP-grade ethanol declined and had a negative impact on the profitability of the plant. As a result, we tested the recoverability of the carrying value of the Lakota ethanol plant and concluded that it was impaired. Therefore, we reduced the carrying value of the plant to its estimated fair value and recognized an asset impairment loss of $61 million in the three months and year ended December 31, 2022.




(e)

General and administrative expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization expense) for the year ended December 31, 2022 includes a charge of $20 million for an environmental reserve adjustment associated with a non-operating site.




(f)

“Other income (expense), net” includes the following:



?

a pension settlement charge of $58 million in the three months and year ended December 31, 2022 resulting from a greater number of employees retiring in 2022 who elected lump sum benefit payments from our defined benefit pension plans than estimated. We believe that the increase in lump sum elections was driven by the negative impact to lump sum payments in 2023 that will result from higher interest rates in 2022;








?

a net gain of $38 million and $14 million in the three months and year ended December 31, 2022, respectively, related to the early retirement of approximately $442 million and $3.1 billion aggregate principal amount, respectively, of various series of our senior notes;




?

a charge of $193 million in the three months and year ended December 31, 2021 related to the early redemption and retirement of approximately $2.1 billion aggregate principal amount of various series of our senior notes;




?

a gain of $62 million in the year ended December 31, 2021 on the sale of a 24.99 percent membership interest in MVP Terminalling, LLC (MVP), a nonconsolidated joint venture with a subsidiary of Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P.; and








?

a charge of $24 million in the year ended December 31, 2021 representing our portion of the asset impairment loss recognized by Diamond Pipeline LLC, a nonconsolidated joint venture with a subsidiary of Plains All American Pipeline, L.P., resulting from the joint venture’s cancellation of its pipeline extension project.




(g)

Income tax expense includes the following:






?

deferred income tax expense of $51 million in the three months and year ended December 31, 2022 associated with the recognition of a deferred tax liability for foreign withholding tax on the anticipated repatriation of cash held by one of our international subsidiaries that we have deemed will not be permanently reinvested in our operations in that country; and






?

deferred income tax expense of $64 million in the year ended December 31, 2021 related to certain statutory income tax rate changes (primarily an increase in the U.K. rate from 19 percent to 25 percent effective in 2023) that were enacted in 2021 and resulted in the remeasurement of our deferred tax liabilities.




(h)

We use certain financial measures (as noted below) in the earnings release tables and accompanying earnings release that are not defined under GAAP and are considered to be non-GAAP measures.






We have defined these non-GAAP measures and believe they are useful to the external users of our financial statements, including industry analysts, investors, lenders, and rating agencies. We believe these measures are useful to assess our ongoing financial performance because, when reconciled to their most comparable GAAP measures, they provide improved comparability between periods after adjusting for certain items that we believe are not indicative of our core operating performance and that may obscure our underlying business results and trends. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered as alternatives to their most comparable GAAP measures nor should they be considered in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of our results of operations as reported under GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies because we may define them differently, which diminishes their utility.






Non-GAAP measures are as follows:






?

Adjusted net income attributable to Valero Energy Corporation stockholders is defined as net income attributable to Valero Energy Corporation stockholders adjusted to reflect the items noted below, along with their related income tax effect. The income tax effect for the adjustments was calculated using a combined federal and state statutory rate for the U.S.-based adjustments of 22.5 percent and a local statutory income tax rate for foreign-based adjustments. We have adjusted for these items because we believe that they are not indicative of our core operating performance and that their adjustment results in an important measure of our ongoing financial performance to better assess our underlying business results and trends. The basis for our belief with respect to each adjustment is provided below.








Modification of RVO – The net benefit resulting from the modification of our RVO for 2020 and 2021 that was recognized by us in June 2022 is not associated with the cost of the RVO generated by our operations during the year ended December 31, 2022. See note (a) for additional details.







On the other hand, the net charge resulting from the modification of our RVO for 2021 that was recognized by us in June 2022 is associated with the cost of the RVO generated by our operations throughout 2021. Therefore, the adjustment reflects the portion of the net charge that is associated with the cost of the RVO generated by our operations during the three months and year ended December 31, 2021.






Gain on sale of ethanol plant – The gain on the sale of our Jefferson ethanol plant (see note (c)) is not indicative of our ongoing operations.






Asset impairment loss – The asset impairment loss attributable to our Lakota ethanol plant (see note (d)) is not indicative of our ongoing operations or our expectations about the profitability of our ethanol business.









Environmental reserve adjustment – The environmental reserve adjustment is attributable to a site that was shut down by prior owners and subsequently acquired by us (referred to by us as a non-operating site (see note (e)).









Pension settlement charge – The settlement charge is largely the result of the rising interest rate environment in 2022 and the impact of higher interest rates on lump sum pension benefits that affected employee retirement decisions (see note (f)). Therefore, the settlement charge is not indicative of the ongoing costs associated with our pension plans.









Loss (gain) on early redemption and retirement of debt – Discounts, premiums, and other expenses recognized in connection with the early redemption and retirement of various series of our senior notes (see note (f)) are not associated with the ongoing costs of our borrowing and financing activities.









Foreign withholding tax – The deferred income tax expense associated with the recognition of a deferred tax liability for foreign withholding tax (see note (g)) is the result of a change in the three months and year ended December 31, 2022 in the manner in which cash generated by the company’s business in international jurisdictions is deployed in the U.S.









Change in estimated useful life of ethanol plant – The accelerated depreciation recognized as a result of a change in the estimated useful life of our Jefferson ethanol plant (see note (c)) is not indicative of our ongoing operations.









Gain on sale of MVP interest – The gain on the sale of a 24.99 percent membership interest in MVP (see note (f)) is not indicative of our ongoing operations.









Diamond Pipeline asset impairment loss – The asset impairment loss related to the cancellation of a capital project associated with Diamond Pipeline LLC (see note (f)) is not indicative of our ongoing operations.









Income tax expense related to changes in statutory tax rates – The income tax expense related to changes in certain statutory income tax rates (see note (g)) is not indicative of income tax expense associated with the pre-tax results for the year ended December 31, 2021.




?

Adjusted earnings per common share – assuming dilution is defined as adjusted net income attributable to Valero Energy Corporation stockholders divided by the number of weighted-average shares outstanding in the applicable period, assuming dilution.








?

Refining margin is defined as Refining segment operating income (loss) excluding the modification of RVO adjustment (see note (a)), operating expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization expense), depreciation and amortization expense, and other operating expenses. We believe Refining margin is an important measure of our Refining segment’s operating and financial performance as it is the most comparable measure to the industry’s market reference product margins, which are used by industry analysts, investors, and others to evaluate our performance.




?

Renewable Diesel margin is defined as Renewable Diesel segment operating income excluding operating expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization expense), depreciation and amortization expense, and other operating expenses. We believe Renewable Diesel margin is an important measure of our Renewable Diesel segment’s operating and financial performance as it is the most comparable measure to the industry’s market reference product margins, which are used by industry analysts, investors, and others to evaluate our performance.








?

Ethanol margin is defined as Ethanol segment operating income excluding operating expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization expense), depreciation and amortization expense, the asset impairment loss (see note (d)), and other operating expenses. We believe Ethanol margin is an important measure of our Ethanol segment’s operating and financial performance as it is the most comparable measure to the industry’s market reference product margins, which are used by industry analysts, investors, and others to evaluate our performance.








?

Adjusted Refining operating income is defined as Refining segment operating income (loss) excluding the modification of RVO adjustment (see note (a)) and other operating expenses. We believe adjusted Refining operating income is an important measure of our Refining segment’s operating and financial performance because it excludes items that are not indicative of that segment’s core operating performance.




?

Adjusted Renewable Diesel operating income is defined as Renewable Diesel segment operating income excluding other operating expenses. We believe adjusted Renewable Diesel operating income is an important measure of our Renewable Diesel segment’s operating and financial performance because it excludes an item that is not indicative of that segment’s core operating performance.




?

Adjusted Ethanol operating income is defined as Ethanol segment operating income excluding the gain on sale of ethanol plant (see note (c)), the asset impairment loss (see note (d)), the change in estimated useful life of ethanol plant (see note (c)), and other operating expenses. We believe adjusted Ethanol operating income is an important measure of our Ethanol segment’s operating and financial performance because it excludes items that are not indicative of that segment’s core operating performance.




?

Adjusted net cash provided by operating activities is defined as net cash provided by operating activities excluding the items noted below. We believe adjusted net cash provided by operating activities is an important measure of our ongoing financial performance to better assess our ability to generate cash to fund our investing and financing activities. The basis for our belief with respect to each excluded item is provided below.








Changes in current assets and current liabilities – Current assets net of current liabilities represents our operating liquidity. We believe that the change in our operating liquidity from period to period does not represent cash generated by our operations that is available to fund our investing and financing activities.









DGD’s adjusted net cash provided by operating activities attributable to the other joint venture member’s ownership interest in DGD – We are a 50 percent joint venture member in DGD and we consolidate DGD’s financial statements. Our Renewable Diesel segment includes the operations of DGD and the associated activities to market renewable diesel. Because we consolidate DGD’s financial statements, all of DGD’s net cash provided by operating activities (or operating cash flow) is included in our consolidated net cash provided by operating activities.







DGD’s members use DGD’s operating cash flow (excluding changes in its current assets and current liabilities) to fund its capital investments rather than distribute all of that cash to themselves. Nevertheless, DGD’s operating cash flow is effectively attributable to each member and only 50 percent of DGD’s operating cash flow should be attributed to our net cash provided by operating activities. Therefore, we have adjusted our net cash provided by operating activities for the portion of DGD’s operating cash flow attributable to the other joint venture member’s ownership interest because we believe that it more accurately reflects the operating cash flow available to us to fund our investing and financing activities. The adjustment is calculated as follows (in millions):

Capital investments attributable to Valero, including expected amounts for the year ending December 31, 2023, is defined as all capital expenditures, deferred turnaround and catalyst cost expenditures, and investments in nonconsolidated joint ventures presented in our consolidated statements of cash flows, excluding the portion of DGD’s capital investments attributable to the other joint venture member and all of the capital expenditures of VIEs other than DGD.

DGD’s members use DGD’s operating cash flow (excluding changes in its current assets and current liabilities) to fund its capital investments rather than distribute all of that cash to themselves. Because DGD’s operating cash flow is effectively attributable to each member, only 50 percent of DGD’s capital investments should be attributed to our net share of total capital investments. We also exclude the capital expenditures of other VIEs that we consolidate because we do not operate those VIEs. We believe capital investments attributable to Valero, including expected amounts for the year ending December 31, 2023, is an important measure because it more accurately reflects our capital investments.



(i)

The Refining segment regions reflected herein contain the following refineries: U.S. Gulf Coast- Corpus Christi East, Corpus Christi West, Houston, Meraux, Port Arthur, St. Charles, Texas City, and Three Rivers Refineries; U.S. Mid Continent- Ardmore, McKee, and Memphis Refineries; North Atlantic- Pembroke and Quebec City Refineries; and U.S. West Coast- Benicia and Wilmington Refineries.



(j)

Primarily includes petrochemicals, gas oils, No. 6 fuel oil, petroleum coke, sulfur, and asphalt.

(k)

Valero uses certain operating statistics (as noted below) in the earnings release tables and the accompanying earnings release to evaluate performance between comparable periods. Different companies may calculate them in different ways.



All per barrel of throughput, per gallon of sales, and per gallon of production amounts are calculated by dividing the associated dollar amount by the throughput volumes, sales volumes, and production volumes for the period, as applicable.



Throughput volumes, sales volumes, and production volumes are calculated by multiplying throughput volumes per day, sales volumes per day, and production volumes per day (as provided in the accompanying tables), respectively, by the number of days in the applicable period. We use throughput volumes, sales volumes, and production volumes for the Refining segment, Renewable Diesel segment, and Ethanol segment, respectively, due to their general use by others who operate facilities similar to those included in our segments. We believe the use of such volumes results in per unit amounts that are most representative of the product margins generated and the operating costs incurred as a result of our operation of those facilities.

GERS Receives Offer To Restart Litigation Against VLO...
Involving patented oil extraction technology VLO uses at all of their ethanol plants, without a license.

CleanTech subsequently received an opinion of counsel that its remaining seven of twelve corn oil extraction patents are clearly valid and enforceable, along with a contingency-based offer to restart the infringement litigation from scratch. We are evaluating our rights and remedies in connection with all applicable matters, and we are unable to characterize or evaluate the probability of any outcome at this time




Further, in connection with ongoing patent filings, the USPTO allowed CleanTech’s new corn oil extraction patents after considering the very information that the District Court found to have been withheld, and upon which the bulk of the District Court’s rulings were based. All of the information alleged to have been “knowingly withheld” from the USPTO in connection with the patents in suit was provided to and considered by the USPTO prior to issuance of several additional patents that are not covered by the District Court’s prior rulings (the “New Patents”). The USPTO subsequently disagreed that deception of any kind occurred when, on February 21, 2020, it issued another patent to us after reviewing the very evidence that was allegedly “withheld,” along with everything the defendants ever submitted and claimed, as well as the District Court’s 2014 and 2016 rulings – all in light of the facts that were never presented to a jury. Significantly, the new patent was allowed by the same examiner that the District Court said was deceived. In other words, the same patent examiner that was allegedly deceived looked at the purported evidence and claims of deception, and disagreed that she had ever been deceived. Thus, in issuing that patent, the examiner concluded that the inventive process was not “ready for patenting” in July 2003, that an invalidating “offer for sale” did not occur in July 2003, and that the “ready for patenting” and “offer for sale” information that the District Court determined to have been “deliberately withheld” from the USPTO was immaterial to patentability.

I'm a recent investor in VLO. I got some shares via put options that I sold last Monday at a strike price of 41 (when I sold the put options Monday, the daily trading range was between 42.24 and 43.49). I'll be switching over and writing covered calls on VLO. I know earnings are out soon. This has been badly beaten down, obviously by the Coronavirus. Anyhow, I'm disappointed that IHUB's VLO board is not being used currently. I thought I'd make my random comment to see if there's anyone else checking the board that has helpful insight. Good luck everyone.

$VLO Valero -2% as Q2 refining, ethanol results slammed

Valero Energy (VLO -2.2%) slides after Q2 earnings match analyst consensus and revenues slip 6% Y/Y, as refining margins fell and higher corn prices cut into profits from ethanol sales.

VLO says Q2 operating income for its refining segment fell to $1B from $1.4B in the year-ago quarter, primarily driven by narrower discounts for medium and heavy sour crude oils relative to Brent crude.

But refinery throughput capacity utilization hit 94% for the quarter and volumes processed averaged 3M bbl/day in Q2, ~70K bbl/day more than in the year-ago quarter.

Higher corn prices cut ethanol profits by 83% to just $7M, compared to $43M in the prior-year quarter, and ethanol production volumes rose 13% Y/Y to 4.5M gal/day, largely due to added production from the three ethanol plants acquired last November.

Q2 operating income at VLO's renewable diesel segment rose to $77M vs. $30M in the year-ago quarter, as renewable diesel sales volumes nearly doubled to 769K gal/day.

VLO continues to expect capex of $2.5B in both 2019 and 2020, including ~40% for growth projects.

$VLO Valero, Darling plan $1.1B upgrade of renewable diesel refinery

Valero Energy (NYSE:VLO) and partner Darling Ingredients (NYSE:DAR) say they will spend a combined $1.1B to expand their joint venture Diamond Green Diesel refinery in Norco, La.

The expansion project will increase renewable diesel production capacity at the site by 400M gal/year to more than 675M gal/year, according to a release from the Louisiana Economic Development Council.

The Diamond Green Diesel facility can convert 2.3B lbs. of recycled material such as animal fats, inedible corn and used cooking oil into 2.75M gal/year of renewable diesel.

Also this week, VLO said it would spend $400M to expand the alkylation unit at its St. Charles Refinery in Louisiana, increasing capacity to convert isobutane and low-modular-weight alkenes into alkylate.

Shares of Valero (VLO) have likely put in an epic bottom. After making a new 52 week low in early trading, Valero staged a strong reversal. This reversal in price put in a major bottoming tail on the daily chart. This same chart signal appeared on Apple Inc (AAPL) just days ago before seeing the stock soar. Valero also has an added benefit of major daily support. Look for Valero to jump back to $90 within weeks.

VLO Settlement With GERS Over Oil Extraction Patents

VLO made a mistake when they purchased an unlicensed oil extraction system called the "Advanced Oil System".

http://ethanolproducer.com/articles/8173/valero-to-invest-in-corn-oil-extraction-at-ethanol-plants

The company selling the system got sued for not having a license with GreenShift (GERS), the inventors of oil extraction technology.

Fast forward to today, the companies have reached a massive settlement. Remaining details are being finalized. GERS ( who just hit a 52 week high today) would like to welcome Valero as one of it's largest licensee's for it's patented oil extraction technology.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/11RERZ9OvsBY4qyIlf-7-fyTSTdfdvG-L/view

In what appears to be part of the settlement, the Advanced Oil System has been pulled off the market.

$VLO Valero says Port Arthur fire released 1M pounds of emissions

Valero Energy (VLO +0.6%) says the Tuesday fire at its Port Arthur, Tex,, refinery released nearly 1M lbs. of emissions into the air, mostly from smoke caused by the burning oil.

The fire, which lasted about three hours, originated from an oil storage tank at the refining complex, but the cause remains under investigation; the refinery was shuttered during Hurricane Harvey but had restarted in recent days and was operating at nearly 50% capacity.

The data makes it clear the fire was a huge emissions event, even though the data is preliminary and self reported, says the director of Environment Texas in Austin.

Refineries, petrochemical plants and other industrial operations spewed ~2.6M lbs. of pollutants into the air during Harvey-related shutdowns and accidents in the nearby Houston area.

$VLO Valero underestimated benzene leak at Houston refinery, EPA says

Valero Energy (VLO -1.6%) "significantly underestimated" the amount of cancer-causing benzene and other toxic compounds leaked from its Houston refinery during Hurricane Harvey, the EPA says.

VLO had reported that the leak from a partially collapsed roof of a storage tank released an estimated 6.7 lbs. of benzene and more than 3,350 lbs. of unspecified volatile compounds, but the EPA says VLO now is preparing a new report that will show a substantial increase in emissions from the incident.

The benzene release by the VLO refinery was the strongest concentration of toxic compounds detected by any independent air monitoring throughout the Houston area in Harvey's aftermath.

Valero Energy (NYSE:VLO) says it signed a long-term deal with Sempra Energy (NYSE:SRE) subsidiary iEnova to export refined fuels to central Mexico; financial terms are not disclosed.

The deal will utilize a new $155M 1.4M-barrel refined product storage facility located in the Gulf of Mexico port of Veracruz, and is expected to start operations by year-end 2018.

IEnova will also build and operate two additional storage terminals near Puebla and Mexico City, which will have 1.3M barrels of combined initial storage capacity.

VLO will have the option to purchase 50% of the equity in the assets once commercial operations begin and regulatory approvals are granted.

$VLO posted strong results for the second quarter of 2017 beating both EPS and revenue estimates. Excluding the impact of an inventory valuation adjustment in the second quarter of 2016, Valero's EPS grew 15% year over year in the second quarter of 2017.

Nice pop above $50 this morning. Looks like we could be stabilizing here for the slow grind back up.

Once again, monkey hammer selling in the morning and big buying end of day. I think this means retail has been panic selling and institutional is buying.

Well, I did not anticipate the drop of the past couple days. Massive panic overreaction to some headlines. Still holding mine here. Hopefully, we found a bottom today.

Who knows...there is only a 3% short interest, so I guess we're just missing the violent short covering upswings here. Still, nice job recovering here today into close. Still holding all mine.

It would suprise me if 'someone' would spend millions to push VLO just a little bit lower.

Looks like someone is trying to see how low they can push VLO down today. Setting up a nice double bottom at the range right above $50 here in my opinion. Really frustrating today - but that usually means its about to pop higher.
