UNAUDITED CONDENSED INTERIM FINANCIAL REPORT

Forward-Looking Statements

Matters discussed in this report may constitute forward-looking statements. The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides safe harbor protections for forward-looking statements in order to encourage companies to provide prospective information about their business. Forward-looking statements include statements concerning plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events or performance, and underlying assumptions and other statements, which are other than statements of historical facts.

We desire to take advantage of the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and are including this cautionary statement in connection with this safe harbor legislation. This report and any other written or oral statements made by us or on our behalf may include forward-looking statements, which reflect our current views with respect to future events and financial performance. When used in this report, the words "believe", "anticipate", "intend", "estimate", "forecast", "project", "plan", "potential", "may", "should", "expect" and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements.

The forward-looking statements in this report are based upon various assumptions, many of which are based, in turn, upon further assumptions, including without limitation, management's examination of historical operating trends, data contained in our records and other data available from third parties. Although we believe that these assumptions were reasonable when made, because these assumptions are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies which are difficult or impossible to predict and are beyond our control, we cannot assure you that we will achieve or accomplish these expectations, beliefs or projections. As a result, you are cautioned not to rely on any forward-looking statements.

In addition to these important factors and matters discussed elsewhere herein, important factors that, in our view, could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements include among other things:

our inability and that of our counterparty to meet our respective obligations under the Lease and Operate agreement entered into in connection with the BP Greater Tortue / Ahmeyim Project (“Gimi GTA Project”);
our inability to consummate the financing of the Gimi GTA Project;
changes in our ability to retrofit vessels as FSRUs or FLNGs and in our ability to obtain financing for such conversions on acceptable terms or at all;
changes in our ability to obtain additional financing on acceptable terms or at all;
our inability to complete the TFDE shipping spin off;
Golar Power's ability to successfully commission the Sergipe power station project and related FSRU contract and to execute its downstream LNG distribution plans;

For additional information relating to our operating and financial review and prospects, including definitions of certain terms defined herein, please see our annual report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2018, which was filed with the Commission on March 29, 2019.

Overview

We are a midstream LNG company engaged primarily in the transportation and regasification of LNG and the liquefaction of natural gas. We are engaged in the acquisition, ownership, operation and chartering of LNG carriers and FSRUs, and the development of LNG projects, including the provision of FLNGs, through our subsidiaries, affiliates and joint venture.

As of September 5, 2019, we, together with our affiliates Golar Partners and Golar Power, have a combined fleet of twenty-seven vessels, which is comprised of eighteen LNG carriers, eight FSRUs and one FLNG, split per group as follows:

We own twelve LNG carriers, one FSRU and one FLNG. Seven LNG carriers are employed on varying time charter lengths; and three LNG carriers and our FSRU are participating in an LNG carrier pool, referred to as the Cool Pool. Our FLNG, the Hilli Episeyo ("Hilli"), is operating under a long-term tolling agreement. The Gimi, an LNG carrier, entered Keppel Shipyard Limited’s ("Keppel") shipyard in early 2019 to commence work on her conversion into a FLNG to service the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project and the Gandria, also an LNG carrier, is earmarked for conversion into a FLNG;
Golar Partners owns six of the FSRUs and four of the LNG carriers. A majority of the Golar Partners owned vessels are employed on charters of varying lengths; and
Golar Power owns one FSRU which is contracted under a long-term charter, one LNG carrier which is participating in the Cool Pool and one LNG carrier which is employed under a medium-term time charter.
  
We intend to leverage our relationships with existing customers and continue to develop relationships with other industry participants. Our goal is to earn higher margins through maintaining strong service-based relationships combined with flexible and innovative LNG shipping, FSRU and FLNG solutions. We believe customers place their confidence in our shipping, storage, regasification and liquefaction services based on the reliable and safe way we conduct our, our affiliates’ and our joint venture's LNG operations.

In line with our ambition to become an integrated LNG midstream asset provider and our experience of converting LNG carriers into FSRUs, we have successfully converted one of our LNG carriers, the Hilli Episeyo, into a FLNG and commenced conversion of another, the Gimi. In addition, we have entered into a definitive contract with Keppel and Black & Veatch Corporation for the conversion of another LNG carrier, the Gandria, into a FLNG. Our aim is to find strong strategic partners that have an interest in utilizing one or more of our FLNGs.

Recent Developments

Since June 30, 2019, the significant developments that have occurred are as follows:

GasLog's departure from Cool Pool
GasLog Carriers Ltd ("GasLog") withdrew its participation of six vessels from the Cool Pool with effect from June 30, 2019. Golar assumed sole ownership of the Cool Pool following GasLog's departure. A ramp down period to allow the conclusion of existing GasLog vessel charter contracts followed, which led to the withdrawal of all of Gaslog's vessels in July 2019.
Margin loan refinancing
In August 2019, we entered into an agreement with a group of lenders to refinance our existing Margin Loan Facility. The new Margin Loan Facility introduces a revolving element, increases the principal amount available to draw to $110 million and has a maturity of one year from execution. The new Margin Loan Facility will continue to be secured by a pledge against our common units in Golar Partners.

3



$150 million term loan facility
In August 2019, we entered into a $150 million term loan facility with a total term of fifteen months.
Organizational Changes

On May 14, 2019, Georgina Sousa replaced Michael Ashford as our Company Secretary. Michael Ashford will continue to remain on our Board of Directors. Ms Sousa is currently a director and the Company Secretary of 2020 Bulkers Ltd and Borr Drilling Ltd.

(1) Average Time Charter Equivalent, or TCE, is a non-GAAP financial measure. See the section of this report entitled "Non-GAAP Measures" for a discussion of TCE.

Total operating revenues: Total operating revenues decreased by $5.0 million to $102.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $107.0 million for the same period in 2018. This was principally due to:

$17.3 million decrease in revenue as a result of lower utilization and hire rates, including repositioning fees, from our vessels participating in the Cool Pool for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in 2018; and
$2.0 million reduction in revenue from the Golar Artic following the maturity of her charter in January 2019.

This was partially offset by the:

$11.3 million increase in revenue from the Golar Viking as she was mostly on-hire during the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to being in cold lay-up during the same period in 2018; and
$2.4 million increase in revenue as a result of the Golar Glacier's higher hire rate under her current charter for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in 2018.

Average daily TCE: As a result of lower voyage expenses offsetting the decrease in operating revenues, the average daily TCE for the six months ended June 30, 2019 increased to $32,000 from $27,800 for the same period in 2018.

Voyage, charterhire and commission expenses: Voyage, charterhire and commission expenses largely relate to charterhire expenses, fuel costs associated with commercial waiting time and vessel positioning costs. While a vessel is on-hire, fuel costs are typically paid by the charterer, whereas during periods of commercial waiting time, fuel costs are paid by us. The decrease in voyage, charterhire and commission expenses of $10.0 million to $30.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $40.5 million for the same period in 2018, was principally due to:

$13.0 million reduction of voyage expenses that arose from the decreased utilization of our vessels participating within the Cool Pool.

5


This was partially offset by the $2.7 million increase in costs in relation to the Golar Arctic, as she was mostly on commercial waiting time for the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to full utilization during the same period in 2018.

Administrative expenses: Administrative expenses increased by $3.6 million to $27.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $24.0 million for the same period in 2018, mainly due to higher corporate expenses, such as legal fees.

Project development expenses: Project development expenses decreased by $3.1 million to $0.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $3.2 million for the same period in 2018, mainly due to a decrease in non-capitalized project-related expenses such as professional and consultancy costs.

Impairment of long-term assets: Impairment of long-term assets increased by $41.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 due to a:

$34.3 million impairment charge on vessel and equipment associated with our LNG carrier, the Golar Viking. In March 2019, we signed an agreement with LNG Hrvatska for the future sale of the Golar Viking once converted into an FSRU, following the completion of its current charter lease term. Although the sale is not expected to close until the last quarter of 2020, the transaction triggered an immediate impairment test. As the current carrying value of the vessel exceeds the price that a market participant would pay for the vessel at the measurement date, a non-cash impairment charge of $34.3 million was recognized. The fair value was based on average broker valuations as of the measurement date and represents the exit price in the principal LNG carrier sales market.  

$7.3 million impairment charge associated with our investment in OLT Offshore LNG Toscana S.P.A. ("OLT-O"). In May 2019, a major shareholder in OLT-O sold its shareholding which triggered an assessment of the recoverability of the carrying value of our 2.6% investment in OLT-O. As the carrying value of our investment exceeded the representative fair value, we recognized a write down of our investment as of June 30, 2019.

Other operating gains: This represents the amounts recovered in connection with the ongoing arbitration proceedings arising from the delays and the termination of the Golar Tundra time charter with a former charterer. The amount of $9.3 million represents the final payment to settle these proceedings.

As of June 30, 2019, we held a 32.0% (2018: 31.8%) ownership interest in Golar Partners (including our 2% general partner interest) and 100% of the incentive distribution rights ("IDRs"). The decrease in the share of net earnings in Golar Partners is due to a decrease in underlying performance of Golar Partners and fair value adjustment for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

The share of net earnings in other affiliates represents our share of equity in Egyptian Company for Gas Services S.A.E and Avenir LNG Limited.

Total operating revenues: On May 31, 2018, the Hilli was accepted by the customer and, accordingly, commenced operations. As a result, she generated $109.0 million of total operating revenues in relation to her liquefaction services for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $18.6 million for the same period in 2018.

Vessel operating expenses: Following the Hilli's commencement of operations on May 31, 2018, she incurred $26.9 million of vessel operating expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $3.6 million for the same period in 2018.

Project development expenses: This relates to non-capitalized project related expenses comprising of legal, professional and consultancy costs. The decrease was due to the commencement of capitalization of engineering consultation fees in relation to the Greater Tortue/Ahmeyim Project following the Gimi entering Keppel Shipyard Limited’s ("Keppel") shipyard for her conversion into a FLNG in December 2018.

Depreciation and amortization: Following the Hilli's commencement of operations on May 31, 2018, depreciation and amortization of the vessel was recognized. A full six months of depreciation was recognized for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the 31 days of depreciation in same period last year.

Other operating gains: Net realized and unrealized gains on the oil derivative instrument resulted in a net gain of $5.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to a net gain of $101.4 million for the six months ended 2018, as a result of the decreased forward price of Brent Crude. Included in other operating gains, we have written off $3.0 million of unrecoverable receivables relating to OneLNG.

Equity in net losses of affiliates: Pursuant to the formation of OneLNG in July 2016, we equity accounted for our share of net losses in OneLNG. Given the difficulties in finalizing an attractive debt financing package along with other capital and resource priorities, in April 2018, Golar and Schlumberger decided to wind down OneLNG and work on FLNG projects as required on a case-by-case basis.

The equity in net losses of Golar Power principally relates to trading activity of the Golar Celsius and the Golar Penguin operating as LNG carriers within the Cool Pool arrangement (further described in note 17 "Related Parties" of our consolidated financial statements included herein) and the administrative cost of business development activities from Golar Power's Brazilian subsidiaries. The main Brazilian activity relates to the CELSE project, which is not yet operational as the power plant is still under construction.

Interest income: Interest income increased by $2.4 million to $6.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $4.0 million for the same period in 2018. The increase was primarily due to an increase in the returns on our fixed deposits that had been made during the six months ended June 30, 2019, and income derived from the lending capital of our lessor VIEs, that we are required to consolidate under U.S. GAAP.

Interest expense: Interest expense increased by $15.7 million to $53.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $38.0 million for the same period in 2018. In addition to an increase in LIBOR rates, this was principally due to $29.3 million lower capitalized interest on borrowing costs in relation to our investment in the Hilli FLNG conversion prior to acceptance of the vessel by the charterer in May 2018.

This is partially offset by the:

$4.5 million decrease in interest expense incurred on the deposits received from Golar Partners in relation to the Hilli Disposal. These deposits were applied to the purchase price for the Hilli acquisition in July 2018;
$2.5 million decrease in interest expense arising on the loan facilities of our consolidated lessor VIEs;
$2.1 million decrease in amortization of deferred financing costs as a result of our refinancings; and
$1.6 million decrease in interest expense due to the conversion of the Hilli shareholder loans to equity following the Hilli Disposal.

(Losses)/ gains on derivative instruments: Losses on derivative instruments increased by $21.5 million to a loss of $20.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to a gain of $1.1 million for the same period in 2018. The movement was primarily due to:

Net realized and unrealized gains/(losses) on interest rate swap agreements: As of June 30, 2019, we have an interest rate swap portfolio with a notional amount of $950 million, none of which are designated as hedges for accounting purposes. Net unrealized gains/(losses) on the interest rate swaps decreased to a loss of $12.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to a gain of $7.7 million for the same period in 2018. The decrease was due to the decline in the long-term swap rates for the six months ended June 30, 2019. Realized gains on our interest rate swaps increased to a gain of $4.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to a gain of $2.6 million for the same period in 2018. The increase was primarily due to higher LIBOR rates for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Unrealized losses on total return swap (or equity swap): In December 2014, we established a three month facility for a Stock Indexed Total Return Swap Programme or Equity Swap Line with DNB Bank ASA in connection with a share buyback scheme. The facility has been extended to September 2019. The equity swap derivatives mark-to-market adjustment resulted in a net loss of $12.6 million recognized in the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to a net loss of $4.4 million for the same period in 2018.

Other financial items, net: Other financial items, net decreased by $2.9 million to a loss of $3.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to a loss of $0.5 million for the same period in 2018 primarily as a result of consolidating our VIEs.

Net income attributable to non-controlling interests: Net income attributable to non-controlling interests increased by $19.1 million to $48.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $29.4 million for the same period in 2018 mainly

8


due to the completion of the Hilli Disposal in July 2018, amounting to $13.7 million. There were no comparable amounts in the period ended June 30, 2018.

The net income attributable to non-controlling interests comprises of (i) $33.4 million and $11.2 million in relation to the non-controlling shareholders who hold interests in Hilli LLC and Hilli Corp for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively, and (ii) $15.2 million and $18.2 million in relation to the equity interests in our remaining lessor VIEs for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. We are party to sale and leaseback arrangements for eight vessels with these lessor VIEs. While we do not hold any equity investments in these lessor VIEs, we are the primary beneficiary. Accordingly, these lessor VIEs are consolidated into our financial results and thus the equity attributable to the financial institutions in their respective variable interest entities are included in non-controlling interests in our consolidated results.
  

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our short-term liquidity requirements are primarily for the servicing of debt, working capital requirements, potential investments in our joint venture and conversion project related commitments due within the next 12 months. We may require additional working capital for the continued operation of our vessels in the spot market (via the Cool Pool), which is dependent upon vessel employment and fuel costs incurred during idle time. We remain responsible for the manning and technical management of our vessels within the Cool Pool.

As of June 30, 2019, we had cash and cash equivalents (including restricted cash and short-term deposits) of $545.4 million, of which $405.6 million is restricted cash. Included within restricted cash is $152.0 million with respect to the issuance of the letter of credit by a financial institution to our project partner involved in the Hilli FLNG project, an aggregate of $96.8 million cash collateral relating to requirements under our total return equity swap, and the balance which mainly relates to the cash belonging to our lessor VIEs that we are required to consolidate under U.S. GAAP.

Since June 30, 2019, significant transactions impacting our cash flows include:

Receipts of:

$9.2 million in August 2019, in respect of cash distributions for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, from Golar Partners in relation to our interests in its common and general partner units held at the relevant record date; albeit $1.6 million was used to satisfy interest repayment on the margin loan facility as a result of 21,226,586 of Golar Partners common units held by us being pledged as security for the obligations under the facility;

a net amount of $30.9 million from restricted cash as a result of the refinancing of our margin loan with a new facility; and

Payments of:

$37.4 million in relation to capital expenditure commitments on the Gimi conversion;

$15.1 million cash distribution to our shareholders in July 2019, in respect of the quarter ended March 31, 2019;

$7.1 million scheduled interest repayments;

$6.7 million, with respect to cash distributions from Hilli LLC; and

an additional capital contribution of $5.0 million to Golar Power.

As previously disclosed in our annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018, note 5, a pre-condition of the Golar Tundra lease financing with CMBL, is for the vessel to be employed under an effective charter.  Under the terms of our sale and lease back facility for the Golar Tundra, by virtue of our prior termination of the WAGL charter, we were required to find a replacement charter by June 30, 2019 or we could be required to refinance the FSRU. In May 2019, the June 2019 call option date was extended to June 2021. 

In February 2019, Golar entered into an agreement with BP for the charter of a FLNG unit, the Gimi, after conversion, for a 20-year period expected to commence in the second half of 2022. Golar also entered into a Shareholders Agreement with Keppel

9


Capital with respect to their participation in a 30% share of the project. Total conversion works, which incorporate lessons learned from FLNG Hilli, including some improvements and modifications, are expected to cost approximately $1.3 billion. We anticipate annual contracted revenues less forecasted operating costs of approximately $215.0 million. Golar has received a $700 million underwritten financing commitment for a long-term financing facility, which is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions by the parties and final documentation. The facility will be available during the Gimi conversion and has a tenure of 7 years post commissioning and a 12 year amortization profile.

To address our anticipated capital expenditure (in particular those associated with our initial commitments related to the Gimi conversion) and working capital requirements over the next 12 months, we are in ongoing discussions with various financial institutions for funding sources which we could utilize for the funding of our capital commitments, investments, working capital and the scheduled repayments of long and short-term debt balances. While we believe we will be able to obtain the necessary funds and have a track record of successfully financing our conversion projects, we cannot be certain that the proposed new credit facilities will be executed in time or at all. In addition, if market and economic conditions are favorable, we may also consider further issuances of corporate debt or equity to increase liquidity. Sources of funding for our medium and long-term liquidity requirements include new loans, refinancing of existing financing arrangements, public and private debt or equity offerings, and potential sales of our interests in our vessel owning subsidiaries operating under long-term charters.

Accordingly, we believe that, based on our plans as outlined above, we will have sufficient facilities to meet our anticipated liquidity requirements for our business for at least the next 12 months from September 5, 2019 and that our working capital is sufficient for our present requirements. While we cannot be certain of execution or timing of all or any of the above financings, we are confident of our ability to do so. We have performed stress testing of our forecast cash reserves under various theoretical scenarios, which include assumptions such as prudent revenue contributions from our fleet and full operating costs, and accordingly are confident of our ability to manage through the near term cash requirements.

Borrowing activities

During the six months ended June 30, 2019, we did not enter into any new debt facilities.

During May 2019, the pre-condition of the Golar Tundra lease financing with CMBL for the FSRU to be employed under an effective charter by June 30, 2019 was extended to June 30, 2021.

Security, debt and lease restrictions
Certain of our financing agreements are collateralized by ship mortgages and, in the case of some debt, pledges of shares by each guarantor subsidiary. The existing financing agreements impose operating and financing restrictions which may significantly limit or prohibit, among other things, our ability to incur additional indebtedness, create liens, sell capital shares of subsidiaries, make certain investments, engage in mergers and acquisitions, purchase and sell vessels, enter into time or consecutive voyage charters or pay dividends without the consent of the relevant lenders. In addition, lenders may accelerate the maturity of indebtedness under financing agreements and foreclose upon the collateral securing the indebtedness upon the occurrence of certain events of default, including a failure to comply with any of the covenants contained in the financing agreements. Many of our debt agreements contain certain covenants, which require compliance with certain financial ratios. Such ratios include maintaining positive working capital ratio, tangible net worth covenant and minimum free cash restrictions. With regards to cash restrictions, Golar has covenanted to retain at least $50 million of cash and cash equivalents on a consolidated group basis. In addition, as of June 30, 2019, there are cross default provisions in certain of our and Golar Partners' and Golar Power's loan and lease agreements.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $10.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to $48.3 million for the same period in 2018, representing a decline of $38.1 million largely due to general timing of working capital and a decrease in charter rates and utilization of our vessels in the Cool Pool.

Net cash used in investing activities of $22.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 arose mainly due to:

the addition of $105.3 million to asset under development relating to payments made in respect of the conversion of the Gimi into a FLNG;
additions of $12.2 million due to capital expenditures predominately in relation to the Golar Viking, Golar Crystal and Golar Arctic; and
additions of $8.3 million to our investments in Golar Power and Avenir.

This was partially offset by the:

$72.2 million proceeds from Keppel's subscription of 30% of the equity interest in Gimi MS Corporation ("Gimi MS");
$18.4 million of dividends received from Golar Partners; and
$9.7 million of cash consideration received from Golar Partners in respect of the remaining net purchase price less working capital adjustments in connection with the Hilli acquisition.

Net cash used in investing activities of $162.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018 arose mainly due to:

the addition of $116.7 million to asset under development relating to payments made with respect to the conversion of the Hilli into a FLNG; and
additions of $62.2 million to investments in affiliates, which relates principally to capital contributions made to Golar Power.

This was partially offset by dividends received from Golar Partners of $18.3 million.

Net cash used in financing activities was $146.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and arose principally due to:

scheduled debt repayments of $123.5 million; and
payment of dividends of $38.1 million.

This was partially offset by $14.8 million of debt proceeds drawn down by the lessor VIE.

Net cash provided by financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was principally generated from funds from new debt, debt refinancings, debt repayments and cash dividends. Net cash provided by financing activities was $328.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and arose primarily due to total proceeds of $1.2 billion from our debt facilities, including:

$115.0 million further drawdown on the Hilli pre-delivery financing in relation to the conversion of the Hilli into a FLNG;
$960.0 million drawdown on the post-acceptance Hilli sale and leaseback financing in relation to the FLNG Hilli facility;
$101.0 million of debt proceeds drawn down by the lessor VIE, which owns the Golar Crystal, upon refinancing of its

11


debt into a long-term loan facility (see note 8 "Variable Interest Entities" of our consolidated financial statements included herein); and
$36.5 million of cash reserves held by the Hilli Lessor VIE as of the date that we determined ourselves to be its primary beneficiary and are therefore required to consolidate the VIE (see note 9 "Variable Interest Entities" of our consolidated financial statements included herein).

This was partially offset by:

loan repayments of $874.3 million, which includes (i) the repayment of $640.0 million on the Hilli pre-delivery arrangement under the FLNG Hilli facility, (ii) payment of $105.0 million in connection with the refinancing of the Golar Crystal facility mentioned above and (iii) payments of $38.9 million in connection with the Golar Tundra lease financing arrangement; and
payment of dividends of $9.9 million.

Non-GAAP Measures

Average Daily Time Charter Equivalent

The average TCE rate of our fleet is a measure of the average daily revenue performance of a vessel. TCE is calculated only in relation to our vessel operations segment. For time charters, TCE is calculated by dividing total operating revenues (including revenue from the Cool Pool but excluding vessel and other management fee and liquefaction service revenue), less any voyage expenses, by the number of calendar days minus days for scheduled off-hire. Under a time charter, the charterer pays substantially all of the vessel voyage related expenses. However, we may incur voyage related expenses when positioning or repositioning vessels before or after the period of a time charter, during periods of commercial waiting time or while off-hire during drydocking. TCE rate is a standard shipping industry performance measure used primarily to compare period-to-period changes in an entity's performance despite changes in the mix of charter types (i.e. spot charters, time charters and bareboat charters) under which the vessels may be employed between the periods. We include average daily TCE, a non-GAAP measure, as we believe it provides additional meaningful information in conjunction with total operating revenues, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, because it assists our management in making decisions regarding the deployment and use of its vessels and in evaluating their financial performance. Our calculation of TCE may not be comparable to that reported by other entities. The following table reconciles our total operating revenues to average daily TCE:

Risk Factors

You should carefully consider the risk factors discussed in Part I, Item 3. Key Information - Risk Factors in our Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2018 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on March 29, 2019 as well as other factors listed from time to time in registration statements, reports or other materials that we have filed with or furnished to the SEC, which could materially affect our business, financial condition or results of operations.

As a Bermuda exempted company incorporated under Bermuda law with subsidiaries in the Marshall Islands and other offshore jurisdiction, our operations may be subject to economic substance requirements of the European Union, which could harm our business.
On December 5, 2017, following an assessment of the tax policies of various countries by the Code of Conduct Group for Business Taxation of the European Union (the “COCG”), the Council of the European Union (the “Council”) approved and published Council conclusions containing a list of “non-cooperative jurisdictions” for tax purposes. On March 12, 2019, the Council adopted a revised list of non-cooperative jurisdictions (the “2019 Conclusions”). In the 2019 Conclusions, Bermuda and the Republic of the Marshall Islands, among others, were placed by the E.U. on its list of non-cooperative jurisdictions for tax purposes for failing to implement certain commitments previously made to the E.U. by the agreed deadline. However, it was announced by the Council on May 17, 2019 that Bermuda had been removed from the list of non-cooperative tax jurisdictions. E.U. member states have agreed upon a set of measures, which they can choose to apply against the listed countries, including increased monitoring and audits, withholding taxes, special documentation requirements and anti-abuse provisions. The European Commission has stated it will continue to support member states’ efforts to develop a more coordinated approach to sanctions for the listed countries in 2019. E.U. legislation prohibits E.U. funds from being channeled or transited through entities in non-cooperative jurisdictions. In July 2019, the Registrar of Corporations for the Republic of the Marshall Islands announced that the Republic of the Marshall Islands expects to be removed from the blacklist following the September and October meetings of the EU Code of Conduct Group and the Economic and Financial Affairs Council. However, it is not assured that such removal will occur at that time, or at all.
We are a Bermuda exempted company incorporated under Bermuda law with principal executive offices in Bermuda. Certain of our subsidiaries are Marshall Islands entities. At present, the impact of the Republic of the Marshall Islands being included on the list of non-cooperative jurisdictions for tax purposes is unclear. Both Bermuda and the Marshall Islands have enacted, and may enact further or amended, economic substance laws and regulations with which we may be obligated to comply. For example, on December 17, 2018, the House of Assembly of Bermuda passed the Economic Substance Act 2018 of Bermuda (the “Economic Substance Act”), which became operative on December 31, 2018, along with the Economic Substance Regulations 2018 of Bermuda. The Economic Substance Act requires each registered entity to maintain a substantial economic presence in Bermuda and provides that a registered entity that carries on a relevant activity must comply with economic substance requirements set out in the legislation. New regulations adopted in the Marshall Islands (which came into force on January 1, 2019) require certain entities that carry out particular activities to comply with an economic substance test.
If we fail to comply with our obligations under this legislation, as it may be amended from time to time, or any similar or supplemental law applicable to us in these or any other jurisdictions, we could be subject to financial penalties and spontaneous disclosure of information to foreign tax officials, or could be removed from the register of companies, in related jurisdictions. Any of the foregoing could be disruptive to our business and could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial conditions and operating results.
We do not know: whether the E.U. will remove the Marshall Islands from the list of non-cooperative jurisdictions; what additional actions the Marshall Islands may take, if any, to remove itself from the list; how quickly the E.U. would react to any changes in legislation of the Marshall Islands; or how E.U. banks or other counterparties will react while we or any of our subsidiaries remain as entities organized and existing under the laws of listed countries. The effect of the E.U. list of non-cooperative jurisdictions, and any noncompliance by us with any legislation adopted by applicable countries to achieve removal from the list, could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial conditions and operating results.

GOLAR LNG LIMITED
NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS


1.    GENERAL

Golar LNG Limited (the "Company" or "Golar") was incorporated in Hamilton, Bermuda on May 10, 2001 for the purpose of acquiring the liquefied natural gas ("LNG") shipping interests of Osprey Maritime Limited, which was owned by World Shipholding Limited.

As of June 30, 2019, our fleet comprises of 12 LNG carriers, one Floating Storage Regasification Unit (''FSRU'') and one Floating Liquefaction Natural Gas vessel ("FLNG"). We also operate, under management agreements, Golar LNG Partners LP's ("Golar Partners" or the "Partnership") fleet of 10 vessels and Golar Power Limited's ("Golar Power") fleet of three vessels. Collectively with Golar Partners and Golar Power, our combined fleet is comprised of 18 LNG carriers, eight FSRUs and one FLNG.

We are listed on the Nasdaq under the symbol: GLNG.

As used herein and unless otherwise required by the context, the terms "Golar", the "Company", "we", "our" and words of similar import refer to Golar or anyone or more of its consolidated subsidiaries, or to all such entities.

Gimi MS Corporation

In April 2019, Gimi MS Corporation ("Gimi MS") entered into a Subscription Agreement with First FLNG Holdings Pte. Ltd. ("First FLNG Holdings"), an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Keppel Capital, in respect of their participation in a 30% share of FLNG Gimi.  Gimi MS will construct, own and operate FLNG Gimi and First FLNG Holdings will subscribe for 30% of the total issued ordinary share capital of Gimi MS for a subscription price equivalent to 30% of the project cost. Under the Subscription Agreement, Gimi MS may call for cash from the shareholders for any future funding requirements and shareholders are required to contribute to such cash calls up to a defined cash call contribution.

The Gimi is currently undergoing its FLNG conversion with an expected completion and redelivery date in 2022.

Going concern

The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis.

As previously disclosed in our annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018, note 5, a pre-condition of the Golar Tundra lease financing with CMBL, is for the vessel to be employed under an effective charter.  Under the terms of our sale and lease back facility for the Golar Tundra, by virtue of our prior termination of the WAGL charter, we were required to find a replacement charter by June 30, 2019 or we could be required to refinance the FSRU. In May 2019, the June 2019 call option date was extended to June 2021. 

In February 2019, Golar entered into an agreement with BP for the charter of a FLNG unit, the Gimi, after conversion, for a 20-year period expected to commence in the second half of 2022. Golar also entered into a Shareholders Agreement with Keppel Capital in respect of their participation in a 30% share of the project. Total conversion works, which incorporate lessons learned from FLNG Hilli Episeyo, including some improvements and modifications, are expected to cost approximately $1.3 billion. We anticipate annual contracted revenues less forecasted operating costs of approximately $215.0 million. Golar has received a $700 million underwritten financing commitment for a long-term financing facility, which is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions by the parties and final documentation. The facility will be available during the Gimi conversion and has a tenure of 7 years post commissioning and a 12 year amortization profile.

To address our anticipated capital expenditure (in particular those associated with our initial commitments related to the Gimi conversion) and working capital requirements over the next 12 months, we are in ongoing discussions with various financial institutions for funding sources which we could utilize for the funding of our capital commitments, investments, working capital and the scheduled repayments of long and short-term debt balances. While we believe we will be able to obtain the necessary funds and have a track record of successfully financing our conversion projects, we cannot be certain that the proposed new credit facilities will be executed in time or at all. In addition, if market and economic conditions are favorable, we may also consider further issuances of corporate debt or equity to increase liquidity. Sources of funding for our medium and long-term liquidity

19


requirements include new loans, refinancing of existing financing arrangements, public and private debt or equity offerings, and potential sales of our interests in our vessel owning subsidiaries operating under long-term charters.

Accordingly, we believe that, based on our plans as outlined above, we will have sufficient facilities to meet our anticipated liquidity requirements for our business for at least the next 12 months from September 5, 2019 and that our working capital is sufficient for our present requirements. While we cannot be certain of execution or timing of all or any of the above financings, we are confident of our ability to do so. We have performed stress testing of our forecast cash reserves under various theoretical scenarios, which include assumptions such as prudent revenue contributions from our fleet and full operating costs, and accordingly are confident of our ability to manage through the near term cash requirements.

2.    ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of accounting

The condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("U.S. GAAP"). The condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all of the disclosures required under U.S. GAAP in the annual consolidated financial statements, and should be read in conjunction with our audited annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018, which are included in our annual report on Form 20-F.

Significant accounting policies

The accounting policies adopted in the preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements for the six months ended June 30, 2019 are consistent with those followed in the preparation of our audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018, except for "Leases" as a result of adopting the requirements of ASU 2016-02 “Leases (Topic 842)”(hereafter, ASC 842).

Our revenue contracts and related expense recognition

Contracts relating to our LNG carriers, FSRUs and FLNG asset can take the form of operating leases, finance leases, tolling agreements and management agreements. In addition, we contract a portion of our vessels in the spot market through our collaborative arrangement, the "Cool Pool". Although the substance of these contracts are similar, (they allow our customers to hire our assets and to avail of Golar's management services for a specified day rate) the accounting treatment varies. We outline our policies for determining the appropriate GAAP treatment below.

Lease accounting versus revenue accounting

To determine whether a contract conveys a lease agreement for a period of time, the Group has assessed whether, throughout the period of use, the customer has both of the following:

the right to obtain substantially all of the economic benefits from the use of the identified asset; and
the right to direct the use of that identified asset.

If a contract relating to an asset fails to give the customer both of the above rights, we account for the agreement as a revenue contract. A contract relating to an asset will generally be accounted for as a revenue contract if the customer does not contract for substantially all of the capacity of the asset (i.e. another third party could contract for a meaningful amount of the asset capacity).

In situations where we provide management services unrelated to an asset contract, we account for the contract as a revenue contract.

Lease accounting

When a contract is designated as a lease, we make an assessment on whether the contract is an operating lease or a finance lease. An agreement will be a finance lease if any of the following conditions are met:

ownership of the asset is transferred at the end of the lease term;
the contract contains an option to purchase the asset which is reasonably certain to be exercised;
the lease term is for a major part of the remaining useful life of the contract, although contracts entered into the last 25% of the asset's useful life are not subject to this criterion;

20


the discounted value of the fixed payments under the lease represent substantially all of the fair value of the asset; or
the asset is heavily customized such that it could not be used for another charter at the end of the term.

Lessor accounting

In making the classification assessment, we estimate the residual value of the underlying asset at the end of the lease term with reference to broker valuations. None of our lease contracts contain residual value guarantees and any purchase options are disclosed in note 9. Agreements which include renewal and termination options are included in the lease term if we believe they are "reasonably certain" to be exercised by the lessee or if controlled by the lessor. The determination of whether lessee extension clauses are reasonably certain depends whether the option contains an economic incentive.

Generally, lease accounting commences when the asset is made available to the customer, however, where the contract contains specific customer acceptance testing conditions, lease accounting will not commence until the asset has successfully passed the acceptance test. We assess a lease under the modification guidance when there is a change to the terms and conditions of the contract that results in a change in the scope or the consideration of the lease.

Costs directly associated with the execution of the lease or costs incurred after lease inception (the execution of the contract) but prior to the commencement of the lease that directly relate to preparing the asset for the contract (for example bunker costs), are capitalized and amortized to the consolidated statement of income over the lease term. We also defer upfront revenue payments (for example positioning fees) to the consolidated balance sheet and amortize to the consolidated statement of income over the lease term.

Fixed revenue from operating leases is accounted for on a straight line basis over the life of the lease; while variable revenue is accounted for as incurred in the relevant period. Fixed revenue includes fixed payments and variable payments based on a rate or index. For our operating leases, we have elected the practical expedient to combine our service revenue and operating lease income as both the timing and the pattern of transfer of the components are the same.

On inception of a finance lease, we derecognize the related asset and record a "net investment in finance lease" financial asset on our consolidated balance sheet. The net investment represents the fixed payments due from the lessee and unguaranteed residual value, discounted at the discount rate implicit in the lease. We recognize finance lease income in the consolidated statement of income (“interest income”) to reflect the implicit rate of interest applied to the outstanding financial asset balance.

Revenue accounting

Contracts within the scope of revenue accounting include our liquefaction services contract relating to the Hilli asset and our management fee services provided to our affiliates (Golar Partners and Golar Power) and customers who lease our assets under finance lease arrangements.

For liquefaction services revenue, the provision of liquefaction services capacity is considered a single performance obligation recognised evenly over time. We consider our services (the receipt of customer's gas, treatment and temporary storage on board our FLNG and delivery of LNG to waiting carriers) to be a series of distinct services that are substantially the same and have the same pattern of transfer to our customer. We recognize revenue when obligations under the terms of our contract are satisfied. We have applied the practical expedient to recognize liquefaction services revenue in proportion to the amount we have the right to invoice.

Contractual payment terms for liquefaction services is monthly in arrears. Contract liabilities arise when the customer makes payments in advance of receiving services. The period between when invoicing and when payment is due is not significant.

Management fees are generated from commercial and technical vessel-related services and corporate and administrative services.
The management services we provide are considered a single performance obligation recognized evenly over time as our services are rendered. We consider our services a series of distinct services that are substantially the same and have the same pattern of transfer to the customer. We recognize revenue when obligations under the terms of our contracts with our customers are satisfied. We have applied the practical expedient to recognize management fee revenue in proportion to the amount that we have the right to invoice.

Our contracts generally have an initial term of one year or less, after which the arrangement continues with a short notice period until the end of the contract, ranging from 30 days to 180 days. Contract assets arise when we render management services in advance of receiving payment from our customers.

Derivatives

Changes in presentation of fair value of derivative instruments and oil derivative instrument

Effective from the quarter ended September 30, 2018, we presented two new line items in operating activities on the face of the statements of cash flows. Given the significance of the oil derivative instrument in the current year, we believe that the introduction of this new line item in the statements of cash flows provides users of our financial statements with greater transparency over a key element of our business. This presentation change has been retrospectively restated in prior periods. The change in presentation for the period ended June 30, 2018 is as follows:

Gains/(losses) on derivative instruments

Effective from the quarter ended September 30, 2018, we presented a new line item under financial income/(expense) on the face of the statements of income. The new line item, "Losses on derivative instruments", includes the movement of our derivative instruments. Previously, these items were presented within "Other financial items, net" along with our general finance costs. We believe that the introduction of these new line items will provide users of our financial statements with greater transparency over our derivative instruments. This presentation change has been retrospectively applied for all prior periods. The change in presentation for the six months ended June 30, 2018 is as follows:

Oil Derivative Instrument

In relation to the oil derivative instrument, the fair value was determined using the estimated discounted cash flows of the additional payments due to us as a result of oil prices moving above a contractual oil price floor over the term of the Liquefication Tolling Agreement ("LTA"). Significant inputs used in the valuation of the oil derivative instrument include management’s estimate of an appropriate discount rate and the length of time necessary to blend the long and short-term oil prices obtained from quoted prices in active markets. The changes in fair value of our oil derivative instrument is recognized in each period within "Realized and unrealized gain on oil derivative instrument" as part of the consolidated statement of income.

The realized and unrealized gain on oil derivative instrument is as follows:
(in thousands of $)
Six months ended June 30,

For further information on the nature of this derivative, refer to note 16. The unrealized gain results from movement in oil prices above a contractual floor price over term of the LTA; whereas the realized gain results from monthly billings above the base tolling fee under the LTA.



22


Impairment of non-current assets

In March 2019, we entered into a number of contracts relating to the conversion and subsequent disposal of the Golar Viking. As of March 31, 2019, although we were still awaiting on LNG Hrvatska to issue Golar a final notice to proceed, we determined that there was sufficient probability of the sale being finalized to trigger an impairment test on the vessel.  The impairment test resulted in a charge of $34.3 million. The fair value of the LNG carrier Golar Viking is categorized within level 2 of the fair value hierarchy, and is based on the average of third party broker valuations. The fair value does not factor in any cash flows associated with the conversion project. The value represents the price that a market participant would pay for a LNG carrier as this is the principal market for the vessel. This is consistent with the fair value methodology that we use for all of our LNG carriers.

In May 2019, a major shareholder of OLT Offshore LNG Toscana S.P.A. (OLT-O) sold its shareholdings which triggered a re-assessment of the carrying value of our investment in OLT-O that was previously recorded at a measurement alternative of cost less impairment as no readily determinable fair value was available. This resulted in an impairment charge of $7.3 million for the write down of the carrying value in our investment in OLT-O to its fair value.

Use of estimates

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("U.S. GAAP") requires that management make estimates and assumptions affecting the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

As of June 30, 2019, we leased eight vessels under finance leases from wholly-owned special purpose vehicles ("Lessor SPVs") of financial institutions in connection with our sale and leaseback transactions. While we do not hold any equity investments in these Lessor SPVs, we have determined that we are the primary beneficiary of these entities and, accordingly, we are required to consolidate these VIEs into our financial results. The key line items impacted by our consolidation of these VIEs are short and long-term debt, restricted cash and short-term deposits, non-controlling interests, interest income and interest expense. In consolidating these lessor VIEs, on a quarterly basis, we must make assumptions regarding (i) the debt amortization profile; (ii) the interest rate to be applied against the VIEs' debt principal; and (iii) the VIE's application of cash receipts. Our estimates are therefore dependent upon the timeliness of receipt and accuracy of financial information provided by these lessor VIE entities. Upon receipt of the audited annual financial statements of the lessor VIEs, we will make a true-up adjustment for any material differences.

3.    RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

Adoption of new accounting standards

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02 Leases (Topic 842) along with subsequent amendments ASU 2019-20 Leases (Topic 842): Narrow scope improvements for lessors in December 2018 and ASU 2019-01 Leases (Topic 842): Codification improvements in March 2019. Topic 842 modifies the definition of a lease, requires reassessment of the lease term upon the occurrence of certain triggers and introduces new disclosures. Lessors are required to classify leases as sales-type, direct financing or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of income recognition and provide guidance for sale and leaseback transactions. Topic 842 requires a lessee to recognize leases on its balance sheet by recording a lease liability (representing the obligation to make future lease payments) and a right of use asset (representing the right to use the asset for the lease term). Leases for lessees will be classified as either financing or operating with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the income statement.

We adopted this Topic 842 on January 1, 2019 under a modified retrospective transition approach. In contracts where we act as either the lessor or lessee, we have elected to use the "package" of practical expedients available, which means no reassessment on transition of whether an agreement contains a lease, lease classification, and initial direct costs under ASC 842. As part of this package the lease term has been determined using hindsight up to the date of transition when considering lessee options to extend or terminate the agreement or to purchase the underlying asset. Furthermore, where available we have elected not to separate the components in our lease arrangements, instead accounting for them on a combined component basis under ASC 842. Our election of the practical expedient providing transition relief will result in our prior periods not being restated and will continue to be represented in accordance with Topic 840.

The impact on the Company of applying ASU 842 as a lessee, based on contractual arrangements in place at December 31, 2018, was the recognition of lease liabilities of $15.8 million, along with right-of-use assets with a similar aggregate value, which mainly relates to our office leases. This liability corresponds to our lessee related liability for future lease payments presented on the face

23


of the consolidated balance sheet as other current liabilities of $5.5 million and other non-current liabilities of $10.3 million, while the carrying value of the lessee right-of-use assets is disclosed in note 13 to these condensed consolidated financial statements.

For contracts where we are the lessor, the practical expedients that we have elected has resulted in no change to our Balance Sheet on adoption. Our legacy leases will continue to be classified in accordance with Topic 840, while modifications and subsequent accounting will follow the accounting under Topic 842. Leases entered into on or after January 1, 2019 have been assessed under the requirements of Topic 842. New lessor presentation and disclosure requirements have been applied to our new and existing lease agreements. The carrying value of the assets subject to lessor operating leases, and the maturity analysis of operating lease payments under arrangements where we are the lessor, are disclosed in note 8 to the condensed consolidated financial statements.

In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-09 Codification improvements. The amendments in this ASU cover a wide range of topics including primarily minor corrections, clarifications and codification improvements. We adopted the codification improvements that were not effective on issuance on January 1, 2019 under the specified transition approach connected with each of the codification improvements. This amendment has not had a material impact on our consolidated financial statements or related disclosures, including retained earnings, as January 1, 2019.

4.    SEGMENT INFORMATION


We own and operate LNG carriers, a FLNG and FSRUs and provide these services under time charters under varying periods. Our reportable segments consist of the primary services each provides. Although our segments are generally influenced by the same economic factors, each represents a distinct product in the LNG industry. Segment results are evaluated based on net income. The accounting principles for the segments are the same as for our consolidated financial statements. "Project development expenses" are allocated to each segment based on the nature of the project. Indirect general and administrative expenses are allocated to each segment based on estimated use.
The split of the organization of the business into three reportable segments is based on differences in management structure and reporting, economic characteristics, customer base, asset class and contract structure. As of June 30, 2019, we operate in the following three reportable segments:

Vessel operations – We operate and subsequently charter out vessels on fixed terms to customers.
FLNG – In 2014, we ordered our first FLNG based on the conversion of our existing LNG carrier, the Hilli. The Hilli FLNG conversion has been completed and the vessel was accepted by the customer under the LTA on May 31, 2018.
In July 2016, we entered into an agreement with Schlumberger B.V. ("Schlumberger") to form OneLNG, a joint venture, with the intention to offer an integrated upstream and midstream solution for the development of low cost gas reserves to LNG. In May 2018, it was decided that Golar and Schlumberger will wind down OneLNG and work on FLNG projects as required on a case-by-case basis.
In December 2018, we entered into a FLNG conversion contract for our existing LNG Carrier, the Gimi. See note 11.
Power – In July 2016, we entered into certain agreements forming a 50/50 joint venture, Golar Power, with private equity firm Stonepeak. Golar Power offers integrated LNG based downstream solutions, through the ownership and operation of FSRUs and associated terminal and power generation infrastructure.

(1) Eliminations required for consolidation purposes.
(2) On March 29, 2019 we signed an agreement with LNG Hrvatska for the future sale of the Golar Viking once converted into an FSRU, following the completion of its current charter lease term, which triggered an impairment indicator. The impairment loss of $34.3 million is recognized in operating costs for the write down of the Golar Viking asset to its fair value. Fair value is based on average broker valuation at date of measurement and represents the exit price in the principal LNG carrier sales market.

25


(3) In May 2019, a major shareholder sold its shareholding which triggered a re-assessment of the carrying value of our investment in OLT-O. This resulted in an impairment charge of $7.3 million for the write down of the carrying value in our investment in OLT-O to its fair value.
(4) Inter segment operating income/(loss) relates to management fee revenues and charter revenues between the segments.

(1) The LTA bills at a base rate in periods when the oil price is $60 or less per barrel (included in "Liquefaction services revenue" in the consolidated statements of income), and at an increased rate when the oil price is greater than $60 per barrel (recognized as a derivative and included in "Realized and unrealized gain on oil derivative instrument" in the consolidated statements of income, excluded from revenue and from the transaction price).
(2) Customer billing during the commissioning period, prior to vessel acceptance and commencement of the contract term, of $33.8 million is considered an upfront payment for services. These amounts billed are deferred (included in "Other current liabilities" and "Other non-current liabilities" in the consolidated balance sheets) and recognized as part of "Liquefaction services revenue" in the consolidated statements of income evenly over the contract term.
(3) The Day 1 gain was established when the oil derivative asset was initially recognized in December 2017 for $79.6 million (recognized in "Other current liabilities" and "Other non-current liabilities" in the consolidated balance sheets). This amount is amortized and recognized as part of "Liquefaction services revenue" in the consolidated statements of income evenly over the contract term.

Subsequent to June 30, 2019, the Golar Artic, Golar Seal, Golar Snow and Golar Ice commenced charters ranging from 8 to 60 months.

With the exception of the Hilli which has a carrying value of $1,239.5 million as of June 30, 2019, management's intention is that all owned vessels are available to be used by customers under operating lease arrangements.

The components of operating lease income were as follows:

(1) "Variable lease income" is excluded from lease payments that comprise the minimum contractual future revenues from non-cancellable operating leases.

Rental expense

We lease certain office premises, equipment on-board our fleet of vessels and service boats supporting the Hilli under operating leases. Many lease agreements include one or more options to renew. We will include these renewal options when we are reasonably certain that we will exercise the option. The exercise of these lease renewal options is at our discretion.

Variable lease cost relates to certain of our lease agreements which include payments that vary. These are primarily generated from service charges related to our usage of office premises, usage charges for equipment on-board our fleet of vessels, adjustments for inflation, and fuel consumption for the rental of service boats supporting the Hilli.

The components of operating lease cost were as follows:

Right-of-use assets obtained in exchange for new operating lease liabilities during the six months ended June 30, 2019 amounted to $12.1 million.

Our weighted average remaining lease term for our operating leases is 5.6 years. Our weighted-average discount rate applied for the majority of our operating leases is 5.5%.

9.     VARIABLE INTEREST ENTITIES ("VIE")

9.1 Lessor VIEs

As of June 30, 2019, we leased eight (December 31, 2018: eight) vessels from VIEs as part of sale and leaseback agreements, of which four were with ICBCL entities, one with a CMBL entity, one with a CCBFL entity, one with a COSCO Shipping entity and one with a CSSC entity. Each of the ICBCL, CMBL, CCBFL, COSCO Shipping and CSSC entities are wholly-owned, newly formed special purpose vehicles ("Lessor SPVs"). In each of these transactions, we sold our vessel and then subsequently leased back the vessel on a bareboat charter for a term of ten years. We have options to repurchase each vessel at fixed predetermined amounts during their respective charter periods and an obligation to repurchase each vessel at the end of the ten year lease period. Refer to note 5 to our consolidated financial statements filed with our annual report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2018, for additional details.  
 
While we do not hold any equity investments in the above Lessor SPVs, we have determined that we have a variable interest in these SPVs and that these lessor entities, that own the vessels, are VIEs. Based on our evaluation of the agreements, we have concluded that we are the primary beneficiary of these VIEs and, accordingly, these lessor VIEs are consolidated into our financial results. We did not record any gains or losses from the sale of these vessels as they continued to be reported as vessels at their original costs in our consolidated financial statements at the time of each transaction. Similarly, the effect of the bareboat charter arrangement is eliminated upon consolidation of the Lessor SPV. The equity attributable to the respective lessor VIEs are included in non-controlling interests in our consolidated results. As of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the respective vessels are reported under "Vessels and equipment, net" in our consolidated balance sheets.

A summary of our payment obligations (excluding repurchase options and obligations) under the bareboat charters with the lessor VIEs as of June 30, 2019, are shown below:
