Golar Reports Three-Month Net of $8.8-M

Tuesday, September 02, 2003
Golar LNG reports net income of $8.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2003 and operating income of $15.6 million as compared to $6.1 million and $16 million, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2002.

Operating income includes a charge for depreciation and amortization of $7 million and $7.7 million, respectively, for the second quarters of 2003 and 2002. The reduction in the current quarter is due to the amortization of the deferred credit resulting from the lease finance transaction announced last quarter. The amount amortized during the three months ended June 30, 2003 was $0.8 million. Earnings per share for the quarter were $0.16 as compared to $0.11 for the same period in 2002.

Operating revenues for the second quarter of 2003 were $30.9 million ($32.1 million for the second quarter of 2002) and average daily time charter equivalents (TCEs) were $59,770. The decline in revenue is mainly as a result of offhire incurred as a result of the scheduled drydocking of one vessel. Two further vessels have drydocked during the third quarter and none are planned for the fourth quarter.

Vessel operating expenses for the second quarter of 2003 were $6.8 million and administration costs were $1.5 million as compared with $7.1 million and $1.5 million, respectively, for the same period in 2002.
