Athabasca Oil releases first quarter results
Athabasca Oil Corporation has announced its first quarter results, detailing a profit of CA$206.8mn ($153.66mn).
The result contrasts with the previous year’s first quarter, which saw a loss of $93.3mn. As CBC reports, its return to profitability came partly from the sale of pipelines as well as a storage terminal.
The Canadian energy company described the results as demonstrative of a “strong operational and financial performance”. Other results Athabasca were keen to highlight include its light oil production, which reached 11,712 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d), a growth of 12% year over year. Its total production reached 39,206 boe/d.
