Hess Corp swings to quarterly profit on fuel demand

April 28 (Reuters) - U.S. oil producer Hess Corp on Wednesday swung to a profit in the first quarter, as a winter storm boosted natural gas demand and prices, while steady COVID-19 vaccine rollouts also aided fuel recovery.

The company posted an adjusted profit of $252 million, or 82 cents per share, in the first quarter ended March 31, from a loss of $176 million, or 58 cents, in the previous quarter. (Reporting by Sahil Shaw in Bengaluru, Editing by Sherry Jacob-Phillips)
