BackSep 03, 2012

3 September 2012

Financial performance of the company recorded a net-loss of RM 47 million in the second quarter of 2010 as compared to a net-gain of RM 221 million recorded in the same quarter of last year.

This financial result is mainly attributed to stockholding losses with lower crude and product prices, although refining margins remain satisfactory. Stockholding losses after tax were recorded at RM32 million compared to stockholding gains of RM162 million in the corresponding period in 2009.

The Board of Shell Refining is pleased to declare an interim dividend of 20 sen per unit of share of RM1.00 each, less 25 per cent Malaysian Income Tax in respect of the financial year ending December 31, 2010, payable on September 30, 2010 to shareholders registered in either the Record of Depositors or the Register of Members at the close of business on September 8, 2010.

The Board is pleased to advise that the Company will build a new 6000 tonnes per day diesel processing unit at its Port Dickson refinery. The new unit will allow the Company to vary its feedstock options, increase diesel production and improve refining margins. The capacity of the refinery remains unchanged at 156,000 barrels per day.

The Company successfully processed 8.9 million barrels of crude oil and sold 9.0 million barrels of products during the quarter.

The Company’s continued strong focus on safety has allowed it to sustain zero Lost Time Injury (LTI), resulting in more than 11 million hours worked without LTI since 21 May 2001.
