In this article, you will get all information regarding Hibiscus Q1 PAT Triples To RM135.3 Million, Benefitting From Strong Oil Price

Hibiscus Petroleum Berhad delivered an EBITDA of RM298.4 million and PAT of RM135.3 million, in 1Q FY2023, mainly driven by relatively high oil, condensate, and gas prices. A total of 1.0 MMbbl of oil and condensate and over 510 thousand boe of gas were sold in 1Q FY2023. The sale of oil and condensate contributed RM502.1 million to total revenue while the contribution from the sale of gas was RM101.5 million.

We
believe that by doing so, the impact from the tax increases will be minimised and our UKCS growth strategy can progress, albeit cautiously. It is also clear that decarbonisation initiatives within the UK oil and gas sector have been incentivised and this will encourage us to identify further opportunities that will reduce our UKCS carbon footprint. Overall, we believe that for

Hibiscus Petroleum Group, the net effect of these tax hikes will not be material and we have a positive outlook for our sector
