    • Pacific Rubiales (OTCPK:PEGFF +0.4%) shares are up slightly after the Colombian oil producer reports a Q1 loss of $722M, or $2.31/share, compared with net income of $119M a year earlier and far worse than consensus expectations for a $0.49/share loss.
    • PEGFF cites lower crude prices, a $411M impairment charge against E&P assets and goodwill and forex losses.
    • But net production for the quarter rose to a record 152,650 boe/day on higher light and medium output and increases in the Quifa SW field.
    • The news comes as Rubiales works with Mexican conglomerate Alga and Harbour Energy on an agreement that would see it acquired at C$6.50/share.
