Dateline 2017-09-25, NST:
THE transformation measures put in place two years ago when the oil and gas industry took a downturn are beginning to show results for Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas).
The national oil company has posted stronger cash position, low gearing and good credit ratings while reducing expenditure by five per cent.
More importantly, Petronas’ net profit more than doubled to RM17.3 billion in the first half of this year from RM6.4 billion a year ago.
This was on the back of RM108 billion revenue compared with RM94 billion in the same period last year.
