TORONTO - Stock in Second Wave Petroleum Inc. (TSX:SCS) fell more than 30 per cent Thursday after the Western Canada-focused oil and gas producer reported it swung to a $3.2-million net loss in the third quarter despite higher production and revenue.

Second Wave said the net loss for the three months ended Sept. 30 amounted to four cents per share. That compared a profit of $899,000 or a penny per share in the same 2011 quarter.
