Lundin lifts output guidance as second quarter profit tumbles

Swedish oil and gas company Lundin Petroleum recorded a decrease in its quarterly profit despite higher revenues. The company is lifting its production guidance for the year. 

The Swedish independent on Tuesday posted revenues of $677.1 million for the second quarter of the year, an increase compared to $464.6 million in the corresponding period last year.
