Capricorn Energy PLC - Edinburgh-based upstream energy company with assets in the UK North Sea, Mexico, Suriname, Mauritania and Egypt - Reports revenue from production in the six months to June 30 fell 28% to USD98.3 million from USD137.4 million the year before, swinging to a pretax loss of USD62.2 million from a pretax profit of USD40.8 million. Explains last year's figure included a profit from discontinued operations of USD120.9 million compared with a loss of USD10.8 million this year.
