EXPENSES related to the transfer of a US$108.3 million revolving credit facility weighed down Kris Energy's results for the second quarter.

It said the slump was "due to non-cash depreciation, depletion and amortisation expenses incurred in relation to the group's producing assets and non-recurring finance costs related to the transfer of the US$108.3 million revolving credit facility to DBS on June 30, 2016".
Revenue for Q2 leapt 163.7 per cent to US$30.7 million from the previous year. The expansion in revenue was due to the increase in crude oil sales and despite the fall in average realised selling prices, it said.
