Golar LNG is expected to benefit from commencement of the Hilli Episeyo. The company's third-quarter results are likely to get a boost from the operation of Hilli Episeyo as well as an improving shipping market. Third-quarter TCE (Time Charter Equivalent) is expected to at least double the second-quarter figure of $19,600. The company's measures to reward shareholders through dividends are also encouraging. To this end, Golar LNG hiked its dividend to 12.5 cents per share from the previous 5 cents. Despite such tailwinds, the massive increase in operating expenses is another cause for concern.  Such high costs might limit Golar LNG's bottom line in the third quarter as well. Its high debt levels are concerning too. In fact, shares of the company have underperformed its industry in the last six months due to the headwinds.
