Maersk Oil made a profit of USD 249m in the second quarter of 2013,  as against USD 468-million in the same period last year.

The company, a member company of the A.P. Møller - Mærsk A/S Group, explains in its quarterly financial report that the  result was negatively affected by lower average oil price of USD 102 per barrel (USD 108 per barrel) and lower entitlement production of 226,000 boepd (287,000 boepd), which was partly offset by insur- ance income regarding Gryphon of USD 133m after tax. The Gryphon FPSO, UK, re-started production in late May and the ramp up of El Merk, Algeria, continued.

Exploration costs amounted to USD 380m (USD 199m) with the completion of five (five) exploration/appraisal wells; including a successful appraisal well on Johan Sverdrup in Norway while the completed exploration wells were not assessed to be commercially viable. The ongoing Cubal exploration well in Angola encountered hydrocarbons, and further evaluation is ongoing.

Cash flow from operating activities was USD 713m (USD 1.0bn) and cash flow used for capital expenditure was USD 455m (USD 530m).
