The company has seen its revenue decline to NOK 5.17 billion in the quarter from NOK 6.46 billion a year earlier on weak market and as some projects neared completion.

In the company’s ‘Services’ segment revenue fell to NOK 1.1 billion in the Q1 2017 from NOK 1.5 billion in Q1 2016, impacted by low activity in subsea services and a maturing production asset services.
