Spanish oil major Repsol S.A. (REPYY.PK) on Thursday reported that its nine-month net income was 1.939 billion euros, higher than 1.466 billion euros in the same period in 2019, prior to the COVID-19 crisis.

Repsol posted an adjusted net income, which specifically measures business performance, of 1.582 billion euros, compared to 1.637 billion euros in 2019.

Average production for the first nine months of the year was 576,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
