Feb 2 (Reuters) - Imperial Oil Ltd , Canada's second-largest integrated oil producer and refiner, posted a 36.5 percent fall in quarterly profit, hurt by lower crude prices and weaker refining margins.

The company's net income fell to C$671 million ($529 million), or 79 Canadian cents per share, in the quarter ended Dec. 31 from C$1.06 billion, or C$1.24 per share, a year earlier.

Revenue fell 4 percent to C$8.03 billion.
