Milaha Gas & Petrochem’s revenue reportedly increased by 24% due to the full period impact of the investment in two LNG carriers in 2H15.

H.E. Sheikh Ali bin Jassim Al Thani, Chairman of Milaha’s Board of Directors, said: “Due to the weaker macroeconomic conditions and volatility in our core sectors, we continue to operate in a challenging environment. In the face of these difficult times, however, Milaha remains focused on investing for the future and pursuing the best growth opportunities domestically and internationally.”
Abdulrahman Essa Al-Mannai, Milaha’s President and CEO, said: “Shipping is experiencing some of the most difficult conditions we have seen since the financial crisis. Despite these difficulties and the drop in earnings relative to the same period last year, Milaha’s net profit margin remains a healthy 38%.”
