Riyadh: Methanol Chemicals Company (Chemanol) on Wednesday announced achieving SAR 31.63 million ($8.43 million) in profits in the second quarter of 2018, up 1,107.25% year-on-year from SAR 2.62 million ($700,000).

Chemanol had incurred SAR 10.26 million in losses during Q1-18, the company said in a statement to the Saudi Stock Exchange (Tadawul).
