China’s CNOOC said on Thursday its third-quarter revenues declined 26.8% year-on-year dragged down by low oil prices.
The company noted in its quarterly operational update that revenues dropped to RMB 35.55 billion, with its realized oil prices falling 29.3% to average $43.03 per barrel.
Yet, its averaged realized natural gas prices increased 2% y-o-y in Q3 to $5.85 per thousand cubic feet. The growth reflects increased production with higher realised prices in China, said CNOOC.
In the July-September quarter, the company produced 131.2 million barrels of oil equivalent (Mmboe), which is 5.1% more than the same period last year. Chinese production rose 10.4% y-o-y to 88.6 Mmboe, but fell 4.6% y-o-y overseas, to reach 42.6 Mmboe.
