The results have been filed at Companies House, covering Repsol Sinopec Resources UK Limited and those of its various subsidiary companies (the 'consolidated results').

“While increases in hydrocarbon prices have positively impacted the company’s results, we continue to operate in a challenging context, but remain focused on the delivery of our business plan and our aim to consistently deliver results against our corporate strategy – which is focussed on safe and sustainable operations from our producing assets, efficient decommissioning and emissions reduction.”
