Aug 26 (Reuters) - Caltex Australia CTX.AX reported a 54% fall in half-year profit on Tuesday, at the upper end of its own guidance, hurt by weakness in refining margins amid higher crude prices.
Net profit on a "replacement cost" basis came in at A$135 million ($91.18 million) for the six months to June 30. It had forecast profit to more than halve to between A$120 million and A$140 million in June.
The petrol station owner and convenience store owner reported A$296 million in the previous year.
