SYDNEY--Oil Search Ltd. (OSH.AU) on Tuesday reported a 2.7% fall in second-quarter revenue due to lower oil prices and said it expects to conclude a sell-down process for some exploration acreage in natural gas-rich Papua New Guinea soon.
Revenue for the three months to June 30 fell to US$211.3 million, down from US$217.8 million on year and beating a UBS forecast of US$171.1 million.
Quarterly production edged up to 1.80 million barrels of oil equivalent from 1.77 million BOE and Oil Search stuck to its full year production guidance of 6.2 million-6.7 million BOE.
