- Energy company Kosmos Energy reported a lower first-quarter net loss as production in the quarter met its expectations.

For the first quarter of 2021, net loss was $90.8 million, down from £182.8 million year-on-year, while revenue fell to $176.6 million from $177.8 million.

Total net production in the first quarter of 2021 averaged approximately 53,100 boepd, in line with prior guidance.

In the first quarter of 2021, 1.5 cargos were lifted from a forecast 12.5 cargos for the full year 2021.

As a result of the timing mismatch between production and the lifting of cargos, there was a 'material underlift of approximately 1.3 million barrels of oil in the first quarter,' the company said.

Kosmos exited the first quarter of 2021 with approximately $2.2 billion of net debt, the increase was driven by the material underlift, it added.
