In a press release, Petron also said that its sales volume is steadily on the rise. This is thanks to the industry’s continued recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The consistent performance lead to the company’s first-semester sales seeing double-digit growth compared to 2021. Consolidated revenue was posted at P398.52 billion.
In total, Petron’s regional operations sold 51.4 million barrels of oil in H1 2022. That’s up 34% from 2021’s 38.5 million barrels. Oh, and its retail sector also saw a 30% growth thanks to strong diesel and gasoline sales.
“Our post-pandemic transition has so far been marked by steady growth, particularly in segments where we suffered major setbacks earlier during this crisis,” Petron CEO Ramon Ang said in a statement.
“We move forward with hope and optimism as we roll out projects that will not only yield optimal returns for the company but more importantly, lead towards greater sustainability and create economic opportunities for more sectors,” he added.
