Aug 13 (Reuters) - Canada’s Petrobank Energy and Resources Ltd PBG.TO posted lower second-quarter results as the oil and gas company was hurt by a drop in world oil prices, but said production rose 72 percent.
Net income fell to C$34.7 million, or 40 Canadian cents per share, compared with C$57.6 million, or 64 Canadian cents per share, in the year-ago quarter.
Second-quarter production rose 72 percent to 41,127 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd), Petrobank said.
Funds from operations fell 15 percent to C$150.4 million, or C$1.64 a share, mainly due to a 52 percent fall in world oil prices, Petrobank said in a statement.
Oil and natural gas revenue fell 9 percent to C$224.4 million for the quarter.
Last week, the company said it offered to buy Tristar Oil & Gas Ltd (TOG.TO) for C$2.24 billion in cash and stock, boosting its stake in a prolific Saskatchewan oil field and giving it the heft to cut costs. [ID:nN05241156]
