New York-listed Golar LNG has posted its best set of quarterly results, albeit helped hugely by a major one-off transaction.

The shipping and floating liquefied natural gas-focused company reported a net income of $471.4 million for the second quarter, compared to a $155.6 million loss in the same period a year ago.

Results in the latest quarter included a $574.3 million gain on the disposal of its Hygo Energy Transition and Golar LNG Partners businesses to US player New Fortress Energy.
