Oslo-listed Subsea 7 has lifted its profit in the third quarter ended September 30, 2016, on high utilisation of its active fleet, combined with previously announced cost cuts and more favorable tax rate, compared to the prior-year quarter.

Despite revenue drop of 23 percent compared to Q3 2015, the mentioned more favorable tax rate in this year’s third quarter pushed the company’s bottom line up by close to 3 percent.
