Reach Subsea Revenues Fall

Norwegian contractor Reach Subsea has narrowed quarterly loss, but saw revenues decline 55 percent during the first quarter of 2017.

For the quarter, Reach Subsea booked net loss of NOK 12.8 million, or NOK 0.11 per share, on revenue of NOK 38.3 million, versus net loss of NOK 14.7 million, or NOK 0.17 per share on revenue of NOK 86 million in the year-ago quarter.

According to the company, the drop in revenues (75% O&G services, 25% renewables) compared to last year is mostly related to the vessel Normand Reach being on a time charter the full period in 2016 and only two weeks in 2017. In addition, vessel transition and idle time during the first quarter had also negative effect on the revenues, the company said.

Operating expenses were some NOK 49 million, compared to NOK 98 million same time last year.

The Oslo-listed company reported first-quarter EBITDA of NOK 2.5 million (NOK -6 million in Q1 2016).

In the first quarter 2016, Reach had five vessels in its fleet. Six WROV systems were in operation in addition to Surveyor Interceptor SROV.

The company reported order book of close to NOK 70 million, most of which is related to work in the second and third quarter of 2017.

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.
