[LONDON] Exxon Mobil Corp, the world's largest publicly traded oil company, on Friday reported a 52 per cent slide in second-quarter profit as tumbling crude oil prices weighed on results.
Exxon, based in Irving, Texas, said its profit in the quarter was US$4.2 billion, or US$1.00 per share, compared with US$8.8 billion or US$2.05 per share.
Oil and gas output rose 3.6 per cent to 4 million barrels oil equivalent per day (boed).
