Petronas reported earnings and production results for the second quarter ended June 2014. Net profit surged 38% year-on-year boosted by higher oil and liquefied natural gas sales volume.

Revenue, meanwhile, jumped 15% to MYR 85.36 billion during the quarter, helped by the local ringgit weakening against the dollar.
