Moreover, the rise in company’s profits was mainly due to lower exploration cost, which declined by 31.77% amid the absence of dry well, higher LPG production, elevated crude pricing and rupee devaluation during the period
During the year, POL’s net sales grew by 35.80% to Rs. 47.50 billion as compared with Rs. 34.98 billion in the previous year which is mainly because of the Rupee’s devaluation against the US dollar.
