OSLO, Norway, Nov. 29, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Golar LNG reports net income of $11.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2005 and operating income of $17.0 million as compared to a net loss of $4.4 million and operating income of $11.6 million for the second quarter of 2005. Net cash provided by operating activities was $19.8 million for the quarter, which has increased from $11.5 million for the second quarter of 2005.The results for the third quarter have been positively impacted by the mark-to-market revaluation of interest rate swaps, which has resulted in a net gain (after minority interests) of $8.8 million and foreign exchange and currency swap gains in respect of the Company's leases of $0.3 million. Both these items, which total an income for the quarter of $9.1 million (net charge of $10.2 million for last quarter), are unrealised and therefore have no cash impact. Interest rate swap gains were impacted during the third quarter of 2005 due to an increase in long-term interest rates between June 2005 and September 2005.
