Shares of companies in the petroleum industry fell for a sixth straight session Friday, but investors were spared more brutal losses. Oil-service shares gained.

The NYSE Arca Oil Index fell 0.4% to 947, its lowest level since last August.

The NYSE Arca Natural Gas Index dipped 0.2% to 490.

The Philadelphia Oil Service Index rose 0.5% to 175.

Among stocks on the move, Spanish oil producer Repsol YPF SA (REP, REP.MC) rose 1.2%. Southwestern Energy Co. (SWN) rose 1.4%. Ensco PLC (ESV) jumped nearly 4%.

BP PLC (BP, BP.LN) fell 1.5% after it said it expects a revised spill-flow estimate from a government panel over the weekend from its Deepwater Horizon accident in the Gulf of Mexico. It may attempt a "top-kill" action to clog the well in coming days.

The NYSE Arca Oil Index traded at 946 on Friday, down a hefty 62 points from its ending point of 1008 seven days ago.

The NYSE Arca Natural Gas Index traded at 490 on Friday, off 43 points from its close of 533 a week ago.
