Unaudited Company financial results for the quarter ended 31 March 2006         
Turnover increased marginally by 2% compared to the corresponding period last   
year. This was as a result of our increase in the downstream marketing business 
- due to the impact of pump prices, which were increased in Quarter 1 last year,
and the lower level of activity in the supply and trading business due to the   
relatively lower imported products requirement in the country in the Quarter    
under review.                                                                   
Operating profit was 8% higher driven by slightly higher overall margins.       
PBT was 6% higher compared to the previous quarter, as a result of higher       
interest costs brought about by higher levels of borrowings.                    
Profit attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company was 22% higher as   
compared to the previous quarter. This was due to the relatively higher         
contribution from the wholly owned business - downstream marketing, compared to 
that by the partly owned businesses in the previous quarter.                    
Outlook                                                                         
The business environment is expected to remain the same for the rest of the     
year. On the downstream marketing front we expect that the price caps on petrol 
and other products will remain. We shall be concentrating on driving the        
efficiency of the business, including the level of capital requirement.         
With the anticipated start up of the subsidy fund, we expect to become a major  
player in the importation of fuels in the Nigeria. This should have a positive  
impact on our bottom line.                                                      
In addition the on going business expansion projects we have in our gas and     
energy services businesses are on track. In particular, the pipeline expansion  
should be concluded as planned by the fourth quarter of this year. The business 
should start contributing to the Company"s profitability.
