Favourable market conditions for refined products supported the company’s earnings in the second quarter and the first half of the year, driven by the increase in crude oil prices which led to improved margins, the company said in a filing to the Saudi bourse Tadawul on 11 August.
The company’s second-quarter net profit was also boosted by a non-recurring gain from an early settlement of long-term loans, which amounted to SR236.3m.
Petro Rabigh processes some 400,000 bbl/day of crude oil into refined products such as gasoline and naphtha at its integrated refinery and petrochemical complex in Rabigh, according to the company’s website.
The company has 1.6m tonnes/year of ethylene production capacity at its Rabigh complex, according to the ICIS Supply & Demand Database.
