Vessel utilization for the fourth quarter 2016 came in at 89% compared with 21% for the fourth quarter in 2015. For the full year 2016, the vessel utilization was 70%, whereas the utilization for the full year 2015 year was 59%.

In the Q4 2016, EMGS’ vessels were allocated 35% to contract work and 54% to multi-client projects. In the comparable quarter of 2015, the vessels were allocated 21% to contract work and no time was spent on multi-client projects.

The Atlantic Guardian vessel acquired data on two multi-client surveys in the Barents Sea from the beginning of the fourth quarter to the beginning of November. Following the completion, the vessel started a pre-funded multi-client survey, which is, weather permitting, expected to be completed late January.

The vessel’s utilization for the fourth quarter was 90%.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
