(Reuters) – Mexico’s state oil company Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) reported on Friday a fourth-quarter 2020 net profit of 124.28 billion pesos ($6.23 billion), helped by currency appreciation, lower imports and tax benefits.
It marked a second consecutive quarter of net profit.
“It’s a great achievement,” said Octavio Romero Oropeza, chief executive officer, in a call with investors.
Pemex also reported total income of 248.90 billion pesos for the fourth quarter, down 22% from the same quarter last year.
