PARIS — French energy giant Total SA says its net profit slid 4 percent in the second quarter as higher production helped offset a steep drop in the price of oil.
Total on Wednesday reported a net profit of $2.97 billion, down from $3.1 billion a year earlier. Underlying replacement cost profit, which strips out one-time items and changes in the value of inventories, fell 2 percent to $3.1 billion in the quarter.
