China CNOOC's interim profit tumbles, cuts costs further

China's national offshore oil and gas producer CNOOC Ltd said first-half profit slumped by nearly two-thirds to the lowest since December 2017, as the coronavirus pandemic battered energy demand and sent oil prices to historical lows.

The listed arm of state-owned China National Offshore Oil Corp said on Wednesday net profit totalled 10.38 billion yuan ($1.50 billion), missing analysts' forecasts for 12.6 billion yuan.

"Low oil prices coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic had a great impact on the production and operation of the company", Chairman Wang Dongjin said in the results statement.

Revenue shrank 32% as realised oil prices fell 40% to $38.7 per barrel.

Net production of oil and gas rose 6.1% year-on-year to 257.9 million barrels of oil equivalent (boe) to record high, with domestic production up 11.5% while output overseas fell 3.5%.

One of the world's most cost-efficient producers, CNOOC cut its all-in production cost to $25.72 per barrel, 11% below the year-earlier level.

Despite its vow to cut capital spending, the firm's expenditures rose 5.6% in the first six months to 35.6 billion yuan.

The company expected second-half earnings to improve, with oil recovering to nearly $45 a barrel due to supply cuts by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies as well as output declines in the United States.

New production would come from oilfields in the Bohai Bay area off north China. But the company is delaying phase two of the Buzzard projects in the North Sea to 2021 from 2020.

It also expects gas from coalbed methane subsidiary to reach 2.5-3 billion cubic metres (bcm) in 2020 and further expand to 6 bcm in 2025. That would push gas to make up 30% of total output from current 19%.

CNOOC Ltd's Hong Kong listed shares have lost 30% so far this year, compared to a 10% fall in broader Hang Seng Index.
