July 28 (Reuters) - Oilfield equipment distributor CE Franklin Ltd posted a second-quarter profit helped by a rise in drilling activity and higher well completions.

Revenue for the quarter rose 14 percent to C$113.9 million.
The company expects oil and gas industry activity in British Columbia and Alberta to rise this year.
