Saipem Sinks to €2.1 Bln Loss

Saipem has plunged deeper into the red as longer-than-expected market recovery led to massive writedowns and reorganisation costs for the Italian oilfield services player in 2016.

The company has recorded net loss of €2.1 billion for the twelve months of 2016, of which €162 million in the fourth quarter. Full-year result has seen Saipem’s losses widen from €806 million in 2015 on writedowns and reorganisation costs of €2,3 billion.

Adjusted net profit was €226 million, which is lower than previously estimated €250 million.

Revenues for the 2016 were down, amounting to €9.98 billion (€2,1 billion in the fourth quarter), versus €11.5 billion in 2015.

Saipem has kept its guidance for 2017, with revenues estimated at approximately €10 billion, and net profit of more than €200 million.

For the full year, Saipem secured new contracts amounting to €8.4 billion, of which €1.7 billion in Q4 (€6.5 billion for the twelve months of 2015).

The company’s backlog at December 31, 2016 stood at €14.2 billion.

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.
