Chevron Corp. (CVX) reported Friday that first-quarter net income attributable to Chevron plunged to $1.38 billion or $0.72 per share from $3.60 billion or $1.93 per share in the year-ago quarter.

The latest quarter's results include pension settlement costs and legal reserves totaling $351 million. Foreign currency effects also decreased earnings by $2 million.

Excluding special items, adjusted earnings were $0.90 per share, compared to $1.31 per share in the prior-year quarter.

The company said results were down from a year ago due in part to ongoing downstream margin and volume effects resulting from the pandemic and the impacts of winter storm Uri.

Chevron's worldwide net oil-equivalent production was 3.12 million barrels per day in the quarter, down 9 percent from 3.24 million barrels per day a year ago.
