Russia’s largest shipping company SCF Group (PAO Sovcomflot) saw a major upswing in its full-year results recording a net profit of USD 354.5 million against USD 83.9 million reported in 2014.
The company said that its total future contracted revenues amounted to USD 8.5 billion.
In addition, the company’s gross revenue increased by 7.6 per cent to USD 1,483 million and its time charter equivalent revenue (TCE) increased by 18.8 per cent to USD 1,240.1 million when compared to figures from 2014.
According to Sergey Frank, President and CEO of Sovcomflot, the results for 2015 have exceeded the company’s expectations.
“At the same time Sovcomflot will continue to build a robust pipeline of fixed income projects in LNG and offshore services. In the short term, we remain cautiously optimistic with regard to the freight market dynamics due to the fundamental supply and demand balance.”
Over 2015 Sovcomflot took delivery of two tri-fueled LNG carriers for long-term time charter to Royal Dutch Shell with three more slated for delivery in 2016 and 2017.
As at 31 December 2015, Sovcomflot’s fleet comprised 143 owned and chartered vessels amounting to over 12.4 million tonnes DWT in total. The company has eight vessels under construction, including: one ice-breaking Arctic LNG carrier; one multifunctional ice-breaking (MIB) supply vessel; three MIB standby vessels and three Arctic shuttle tankers.
