Crescent Point was expected to report an adjusted loss of 22 cents per share on $340 million in revenues, according to financial markets data firm Refinitiv.

Adjusted funds flow totalled $109 million, compared with $503.8 million in the prior year's quarter.

“Our priorities during the current commodity price cycle remain on maintaining a strong financial position and enhancing our sustainability,” said CEO Craig Bryksa.
