Hong Kong shares to open down 1 pct, PetroChina weak after earnings

HONG KONG, Aug 24 (Reuters) - Hong Kong shares were set to start lower on Friday, dragged by a 1.7 percent slide in PetroChina after it posted a forecast-lagging 21 percent dip in its second-quarter net profit after markets closed on Thursday.

The Hang Seng Index was poised to begin down 1 percent at 19,930.5. The China Enterprises Index of the top Chinese listings was indicated to start down 1.3 percent. (Reporting by Clement Tan; Editing by John Mair)
