Imperial Oil Ltd, Canada’s No.2 integrated oil company, reported higher second-quarter revenue, driven by increased bitumen prices and production.
The company, 69.6 per cent owned by Exxon Mobil Corp, said total revenue and other income rose 26.3 per cent to C$10.05-billion ($9.21-billion) in the second quarter ended June 30.
Imperial Oil’s net income rose to C$1.23-billion, or C$1.45 per share, from C$327-million, or 38 Canadian cents per share, a year earlier.
This latest quarter included a C$478-million gain associated with the sale of interests in several conventional upstream producing assets.
