(Corrects currency conversion to USD in paragraph 2)

July 25 (Reuters) - Oil and gas producer Cenovus Energy reported a quarterly profit on Thursday compared with a loss a year earlier, benefiting from a rise in Canadian crude prices due to a mandatory production cut by the Alberta government.

Net earnings from continuing operations was C$1.78 billion ($1.36 billion), or C$1.45 per share, in the second quarter ended June 30, compared with a loss of C$410 million, or 33 Canadian cents per share, a year earlier. [reut.rs/2Gswdwa ]

Total production fell to 443,318 barrels of oil equivalent per day from 518,530 boe/d in the quarter. ($1 = 1.3129 Canadian dollars) (Reporting by Taru Jain and Shradha Singh in Bengaluru; Editing by Arun Koyyur)
