Seahawk Oil International Inc. of Newport Beach said it has formed a partnership with several privately held companies--none now in the oil business--to acquire new oil and gas reserves. Seahawk, an independent oil and gas exploration company, will be a co-general partner in the deal. The partnership will have the ability to buy up to $25 million worth of producing oil and gas assets located in the United States. Seahawk will contribute 10% of the acquisition partnership capital.

Seahawk Oil International Inc., a Newport Beach independent oil and gas exploration company, posted a profit of $45,085 for the first quarter, contrasted with a loss of $247,245 for the 1988 first quarter. The profit reverses a trend of losses incurred since 1986 when oil prices collapsed and became unstable, the company said, and attributed the improved performance to cost-containment measures implemented by management in prior years, including the cancellation of lease commitments and the exchange of convertible debentures into common stock.

The continuing slide in oil prices resulted in a first-quarter loss of $286,936 at Seahawk Oil International Inc., compared with a loss of $49,595 during the year-ago period. The Newport Beach oil company also reported a steep decline in revenues, down 30% to $472,617 from $676,582. But company officials said they believe an internal cost reduction program will combine with recently increased oil production to improve earnings in the rest of the year.
