This was its first quarter of operations following the merger with Husky Energy on Jan. 1, which instantly turned Cenovus into Canada's third-largest energy producer. The merger is off to a good start. Cenovus pegged its total production for the quarter at 769,300 barrels of oil equivalent a day and its cash flow at 57 cents a share, exceeding analysts' predictions of 761,000 barrels a day and 55 cents a share. As well, after four consecutive quarters of losses throughout 2020, Cenovus finally swung to a profit of $220-million.
