Highlights of the Week

Subsea World News has put together a recap of the most interesting articles from the previous week (January 04 – January 10).


Subsea 7 Sinks to Five-Year Low

Oil services company, Subsea 7, saw its stock price hit a five-year low after dropping below NOK 55 on Wednesday.

The stock has fallen some 36 percent since May this year after the SURF major was forced to adjust to difficult oil and gas market conditions by reducing its fleet by 11 ships and its global workforce by some 2500 positions.

 


DeepOcean Axes 90 Jobs

Norwegian subsea player DeepOcean is reportedly letting go up to 90 of its workers as it adjusts to lower activity levels.
