- Romania and Tunisia focused Serinus Energy reported a deeper first-half loss, as rising revenue was more than offset by higher production, depletion and administrative expenses.

Pre-tax losses for the six months through June amounted to $3.6m, compared to losses of $0.3m on-year.

Revenue, net of royalties, rose 39% to $5.9m, amid an 87% jump in production to 680 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

Serinus said the outlook for Romania was 'strong', while operations in Tunisia are ramping up after an extended period of stagnation, due to the difficult social conditions in the country.
