  • During the reporting period, SCF Group achieved solid operating results despite a difficult year for the conventional tanker market.

Industrial business delivered 6.3 per cent year-on-year revenue growth. 
  • Conventional tanker market began to show initial signs of recovery with a seasonal uplift in charter rates since October 2021. And benefiting from that SCF conventional tanker business (crude and oil products transportation business segments) showed a growth of 15.4 per cent quarter-on-quarter in the fourth quarter 2021.

i Contract backlog is the total amount receivable by the Group under the Group’s currently outstanding time-charter agreements, including arising from the Group’s share in the joint ventures. It is presented for the total term of such agreements, in each case excluding extension options. It is based on the applicable time-charter-equivalent rate and management’s estimate of the total trading days in the period for which it is presented (calculated as the total number of days for which the vessel is in possession of the owner less any scheduled or unscheduled maintenance or repairs during such period). The calculation of contract backlog (an operational measure) involves management judgment and is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties.
