The Board of Directors of the Oil & Gas Development Company Limited met on 28 April at its Head Office in Islamabad and announced the financial results for the nine months ended March 31, 2022, of the fiscal year 2021-22.

OGDC reported a profit after tax of Rs. 112.044 billion, showing an increase of 69 percent compared to a profit of Rs. 66.34 billion in the same period of last year.

This impressive growth in earnings is mainly due to higher crude oil prices, the rupee’s devaluation against the US Dollar and an increase in other income.
