Total revenue rose to $49.9 billion from $49.66 billion a year earlier. The company said daily production averaged 2.04 million barrels of oil equivalent per day, up from 1.52 million a year ago, driven by the addition of assets from Burlington Resources and production from Libya, partially offset by lower production from the Alaskan Prudhoe Bay field.
