The Oslo-listed company has seen its revenue at USD 120 million, up from USD 25 million same time last year (excluding Fairfield and WGP Group revenue).

First-quarter EBITDA came at 16 million, against EBITDA of $10.3 million in Q1 2018.

The first part of the year has been active. So far this year we have completed four contracts and started up five new data acquisition contracts, and successfully delivered the second shipment under the large MASS I node sales contract we entered into last year,” says CEO Per Christian Grytnes in Magseis Fairfield.
