"Supported by the OPEC/non-OPEC agreement, Brent prices remained volatile in the context of high inventories and averaged 54 $/b this quarter. In this environment, Total's adjusted net income increased by 56% to $2.6 billion in the first quarter 2017, in line with the strong recent quarterly results of 2016, due to good operational performance and a steadily decreasing breakeven. Excluding acquisitions and asset sales, the Group generated $1.7 billion of cash flow after investments, mainly due to a 63% increase in operating cash flow before working capital changes from the Exploration & Production segment and investment discipline."
Revenue for the quarter was $2.3 billion, a decrease of $148 million, or 6%, sequentially. Compared to the same quarter last year, revenue declined $408 million, or 15%. The sequential decrease in revenue was driven primarily by the deconsolidation of the North America onshore pressure pumping business, lower revenue internationally, mainly related to non-recurring year-end product sales, seasonality and price deterioration, and reduced activity in the Gulf of Mexico. This decline was partially offset by activity growth in our North America onshore business, primarily in our well construction product lines.
Revenues for the first quarter of 2017 were $1.74 billion, an increase of three percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2016 and a decrease of 20 percent from the first quarter of 2016.
