Nov 2 (Reuters) - U.S. oil and natural gas producer Chevron Corp said on Friday its quarterly profit doubled as record oil and gas production helped overcome a series of one-time items.
The company posted third-quarter net income of $4.05 billion, or $2.11 a share, compared with $1.95 billion, or $1.03 per share, in the same quarter a year earlier. Analysts were looking for the company to report $2.06 per share profit, according to IBES data on Refinitiv.
Production rose to 2.96 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed) from 2.72 million boed a year ago. (Reporting by Gary McWilliams; Editing by Jeffrey Benkoe)
