Golar LNG

Golar is one of the oldest liquefied natural gas shipping companies. Its business was originally founded in 1946 as Gotaas-Larsen Shipping, which entered LNG shipping business in 1970. Other than owning, operating and chartering conventional LNG tankers, the company has also been developing floating storage and regasification (FSRU) business since last decade.

Golar LNG had been chaired by John Fredrisken until 2014 when the tycoon sold almost all of his stake in the company. Since then it has been effectively controlled by Tor Olav Trøim, Mr Fredirksen’s former righthand man.

Recent performance

GasLog doubled its profit in the second quarter but fell below analysts’ earnings forecasts for the period as a seasonal softening of rates affected the company’s spot-trading vessels.

Revenue rose 2.2% to $132.8m and the owner posted a profit of $14.2m, up from $6.9m in the equivalent quarter last year.

However, the company reported a loss attributable to owners of GasLog common stock of $3.6m, or a loss per share of $0.07.

The company has declared a dividend for the quarter of $0.15 per share, which is 7% higher than the dividend for the quarter a year ago.
