Feb 7 (Reuters) - Suncor Energy Inc, Canada's second-largest energy producer, reported a higher fourth-quarter profit on Wednesday, topping analysts' estimates on stronger oil prices and lower costs.

Suncor's operating profit, which excludes one-time items, was C$1.31 billion, or 79 Canadian cents per share, in the fourth quarter, up from $636 million, or 38 Canadian cents per share, in the year-ago period.

Analysts had predicted earnings of 72 Canadian cents per share, according to Reuters data. (Reporting by Julie Gordon in Vancouver; Editing by Peter Cooney)
