Jakarta: PT Berlian Laju Tanker Tbk has predicted that the net profit, after acquiring Chembulk Tankers, will reach US$72.74 million compared with US$53.71 million before the acquisition.
Berlian Laju Tanker President Director Widihardja Tanudjaja said the revenue from chemical tanker charters should increase from 53% to 69%, but the revenues from oil tankers will decline from 36% to 23.6%.

A syndication of four banks will finance the acquisition. They are DnB NOR Bank ASA, Fortis Bank SA/NV, ING Bank NV and NIBC Bank Ltd.
Widihardja said the company has 25 ships on order through to 2011 - 17 chemical tankers, two LNG tankers, two ethylene tankers, and four LPG tankers.
