Suncor Energy Inc. (TSE:SU) reports fourth quarter 2010 net earnings of $1.353 billion.
The press release is quoted as saying:
As a result of strategic divestments during 2010, total production in the fourth quarter of 2010 decreased to 625,600 boe per day (boe/d), from 638,200 boe/d in the fourth quarter of 2009. However, production from continuing operations increased to 605,400 boe/d in the fourth quarter of 2010, from 544,500 boe/d in the fourth quarter of 2009. The increase resulted from record quarterly production of 325,900 barrels per day (bpd) from Oil Sands (excluding Syncrude) due to improved operational reliability and higher bitumen supply, and new production from International and Offshore.
