MADRID (Reuters) - Spanish oil and gas firm Repsol said on Tuesday first quarter adjusted net profit rose 6 percent from a year earlier, as lower oil and gas prices and a production stoppage in Libya were offset by lower costs and a stronger U.S. dollar.

Recurring net profit adjusted for one-off gains and inventory effects (CCS net profit) came in at 618 million euros (£534 million) in January-March, compared with 583 million euros at the beginning of 2018.

A forecast drawn from analyst estimates provided by the company had pointed to adjusted net income of 566 million euros.
