Jul 30 13
PSEG Power reported unaudited earnings and operating results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013. For the quarter, the company’s operating earnings were $114 million or $0.22 per share compared with operating earnings of $110 million or $0.22 per share for the second quarter of 2012. The company's second quarter earnings benefited from higher PJM capacity prices and an improvement in market prices for energy with an increase in the price of gas. Operating revenues were $1,190 million against $985 million a year ago. Operating income was $349 million against $196 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations before income tax was $343 million against $177 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations/net income was $204 million against $104 million a year ago.
For the six months, the company’s operating earnings were $364 million or $0.71 per share against $306 million or $0.60 per share a year ago. Operating revenues were $2,637 million against $2,546 million a year ago. Operating income was $590 million against $637 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations before income tax was $571 million against $598 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations/net income was $341 million against $357 million a year ago.
The company’s output was unchanged in the quarter from year-ago levels. The nuclear fleet operated at an average capacity factor in the quarter of 87.9% versus 87.2% last year bringing the capacity factor for the first half of the year to 94.4%. The fleet's performance in the quarter was influenced by a refueling outage and main generator repair work at Salem 1 (57% owned and operated by PSEG Power) versus a refueling outage in the second quarter of 2012 at PSEG Power's 100%-owned and operated Hope Creek unit. Output from its baseload nuclear and Pennsylvania coal units in the quarter offset a decline in production at Power's NJ-based coal units.
The company continues to forecast output for 2013 of 53 -- 55 TWh.
For the remainder of the year output of 26 -- 28 TWh is 70% - 75% hedged at an average price of $51 per MWh.
For 2014, the company forecasts output of 53 -- 55 TWh is approximately 55% - 60% hedged at an average price of $49 per MWh.
Power has hedged 30% - 35% of its forecast generation in 2015 of 52 -- 54 TWh at an average price of $49 per MWh. The increase in the percentage of generation hedged for 2014 -- 2015 reflects only an increase in the level of hedges on base load generation. Power's intermediate and peaking generation remains open. Average hedge prices continue to reflect assumed BGS volumes of 12 TWh in 2013 and 10 TWh in 2014.
The forecast range of company’s operating earnings for 2013 remains unchanged at $535 million to $600 million. However, based on Power's performance year-to-date, results for the full year are expected to be at the upper end of the range.
