Petronas Q2 Profit Rises 8%
Malaysia's state-owned energy firm Petroliam Nasional Bhd reported an 8% increase in second-quarter profit on Friday because of a weaker Malaysian ringgit, though that was partially offset by higher product costs.
Petronas, as the company is known, said profit after tax for April-June rose to 14.7 billion ringgit, up from 13.6 billion ringgit ($3.25 billion) in the same period a year earlier.
