Net debt was reduced $96.5 million from the year end total to $1.18 billion.

CEO Amjad Bseisu said: 'Production at Magnus has been impacted by topside related well performance but our production enhancement programme has partially recovered the well potential and we expect further recovery over the remainder of the year. We remain focused on improving production across our existing portfolio.

'The Golden Eagle acquisition remains on track to complete around the end of September and will add production, reserves and cash flow to the Group, while the Bressay and Bentley acquisitions, offer further long-term potential development opportunities.'
