Hess Corporation Research Report
The clear-cut strategy of Hess to fuel its long-term growth is seen by analysts and investors as an efficient move to achieve company goals. After announcing its plan to reduce overall expenditures, Hess has been making a thorough assessment of its core and non-core operations as part of its transformation. The company is pursuing the sale of its US East Coast and St. Lucia terminal networks since these are no longer part of Hess' core operations. The Port Reading refinery is also expected to be closed by now since the company wants to focus on its economical assets. Hess announced a full-year capital and exploratory budget of $6.8 billion. Hess recently completed the drilling of its seventh consecutive successful exploratory well on the Deepwater Tano/Cape Three Points block offshore Ghana.
