Organic capital expenditure (capex) for the latest reported quarter was $2.99bn, and $10.2bn for the full year, with total capex at $3.77bn for the quarter and $14.5bn for the year.

The company’s production for Q4 averaged 2.2mboe/d, an increase from 2.05mboe/d in the same quarter of the previous year.

This growth was primarily driven by the Johan Sverdrup field and new wells, with additional contributions from international assets such as the Peregrino field and US offshore operations.

The company also recognised net impairments of $328m, mainly due to the sale of assets and its exit from Azerbaijan.

After taxes, shareholder distributions and investments, Equinor’s net cash flow stood at negative $3.26bn for Q4 2023 and at negative $8.34bn for the full year 2023.

The fourth tranche of the 2023 share buyback programme was completed on 19 January 2024, totalling $1.67bn, bringing the year’s total buybacks to $6bn.

Equinor’s board announced a share buyback programme of $10bn–12bn for the next two years, with the first tranche of up to $1.2bn under this programme commencing on 8 February 2024.

Equinor president and CEO Anders Opedal said: “We are extending the outlook for stable contribution from oil and gas to 2035. By 2030 we expect material and rapidly growing cash flow from our renewables and low carbon business.

“We will provide a broader energy offering with lower emissions. We aim to grow renewables and decarbonised energy to more than 80 terawatt-hours by 2035 and have increased our ambition for carbon storage.”

For 2024, the company expects organic capex to be around $13bn and oil and gas production to be stable compared with 2023.
