Unaudited Company financial results for the quarter ended 31 March 2007         
Overall, the Group delivered significant growth in profitability despite a      
quarter characterized by challenges along the petroleum products supply chain.  
Intermittent product shortages exacerbated by the high product prices in the    
international market which did not make it feasible for marketers to intervene  
meant we could not always meet customer demand.                                 
Outlook                                                                         
Aggressive plans are on the way to ensure completion of the on-going pipeline   
expansion by Gaslink. We expect a huge contribution to our margin once this is  
achieved as more customers will benefit from our gas network. Our marketing arm 
has been repositioned to offer excellent services through existing retail       
outlets and other customer- focus products we are deploying. We also expect     
stability in international market for oil and an improvement in local           
production. We shall continue to explore all low volume but high margin         
business in a bid to ensure increased profitability for all our stakeholders.   
Gradually receivables from the Government in respect of the petroleum subsidy   
fund as well as bridging claims are being brought under control and this should 
lead to a positive impact on the Group`s interest costs going forward.          
The business cum political environment is expected to remain stable for the     
rest of the year. Government regulation of the pump price of fuel and other     
products is expected to remain unchanged.
