I think you can save it using outlookup command. and can normally forward the data to splunk instance.

There are two things: (for the below approach there is no need to python script)
1. First you can locally index the data and send it to some other server as well. Check the below link:
https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.3/Forwarding/Routeandfilterdatad
2. Now after data is indexed, you can schedule a report in Splunk where you can outputlookup search results in csv.

Thats what i am saying there is no need to convert using python. You can do the same login on SPL and send the result using outputlookup.
