Magseis Hikes Revenues

Norwegian seabed seismic services player, Magseis, has bounced back in black at the end of the fourth quarter 2016 with its quarterly revenues at all-time high.

The Oslo-listed company has seen its revenues up to USD 20 million from USD 5.5 million same time last year. The Q4 2016 revenues is a result of the Saudi Aramco Red Sea survey.

Revenues for the twelve months ended December 31, 2016, increased by close to USD 19 million at USD 59 million.

Fourth-quarter EBITDA came at USD 5.5 million, against negative EBITDA of USD 6.3 million in Q4 2015.

The company booked slight quarterly profit of about USD 60K, versus loss of USD 11.2 million or 37 cents per share in the prior-year quarter. Net loss for the year was relatively flat with net loss in 2015 at USD 16.7 million.

Magseis’ full-year bottom line was impacted in Q3 2016 when the company recognised impairment of asset values of USD 6.7 million associated with the conversion from G1 to G2 seismic node technology.

Westcon Group AS is the company’s largest shareholder with 14.1 percent, followed by Anfar Invest with 11.4 percent and Geo Innova with 10.3 percent.

As of December 31, 2016, Magseis reported a total of 83 employees including a seismic crew of 42.

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.
