Thailand's PTTEP Q2 Profit More Than Doubles, Beats Forecast
BANGKOK, July 28 (Reuters) - PTT Exploration and Production Pcl, Thailand's largest oil and gas explorer, said its quarterly net profit more than doubled, helped by lower expenses.

Second-quarter revenue fell 23 percent to $1.11 billion from a year earlier, the company said in a statement.
