Athabasca Oil's loss narrows as expenses fall
July 30 (Reuters) - Canadian oil sands producer Athabasca Oil Corp reported a smaller quarterly loss, helped by a 23 percent fall in expenses.
The company's net loss narrowed to C$29 million ($22.3 million), or 7 Canadian cents per share, in the second quarter ended June 30 from C$56.8 million, or 14 Canadian cents, a year earlier.
Athabasca also turned cash flow positive from operations, a key indicator of a company's ability to pay for new projects and drilling.
