Press Release

For Immediate Release

CHEMOIL RECORDS US$ 8.8 MILLION PROFIT FOR 1Q 2012 Singapore, May 11, 2012 - SGX mainboard-listed Chemoil (SGX-ST: CHEL.SI), one of the world's leading suppliers of marine fuel, announced today that it has recorded profit after tax attributable to equity holders of US$ 8.8 million for the first quarter of 2012 (US$ 23.3 million for 1Q2011).

The business activities hit new highs as the group generated revenue of US$ 3.5 billion, up 36% from last year. Gross contribution per metric ton, the company's key margin indicator, was US$ 8.9 per metric ton during 1Q2012, down from US$ 14.4 for 1Q2011.

Commenting on the 1Q2012 result, Chemoil's CEO, Tom Reilly stated, "1Q2012 results were positive and on target despite being adversely impacted by US$ 1.8 million in restructuring costs associated with our non-core legacy assets. Our objective is to complete the restructuring by end 2012. The first quarter

2012 represents the fifth profitable quarter in a row for Chemoil. This corresponds to an annualized return on shareholder's equity after tax of about 10%, in light of the difficult times in the shipping industry, restructuring costs related to our non-core businesses and that we are in the start-up phase of our new businesses".

Tom Reilly added, "The growth prospects for 2012 and beyond are promising. We continue to strengthen our marine fuels organization and to exit non-core activities. Additionally, we are aiming to grow and diversify Chemoil's long term profitability through related fuel sales businesses such as our new start-ups Chemoil Aviation (jet fuel) and Chemoil Energy (land diesel sales)".
