April 26 (Reuters) - Canadian oil and gas producer Husky Energy Inc reported a jump in quarterly profit on Thursday, helped by lower costs.
Net earnings rose to C$248 million ($193.2 million), or 89 Canadian cents per share, in the three months ended March 31, from C$71 million, or 66 Canadian cents per share, a year earlier.
However, Husky’s average production fell to 300,400 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd) from 334,000 boepd a year earlier.
