- EBITDA of USD 84.6 million
- Long-term financial platform established in July
- Contract extension for FPSO Espoir Ivoirien
- BW Pioneer subsea mooring replacement campaign completed
EBITDA for the second quarter amounted to USD 84.6 million, a decrease of USD 12.8 million (USD 97.4 million). EBITDA was lower, mainly because the loss of hire insurance for Cidade de São Mateus ended in mid-May and the downtime related to shutdown of BW Pioneer. Operating profit for the quarter amounted to USD 24.9 million, a decrease of USD 11.3 million (USD 36.2 million).
With strong support from all financial stakeholders, the company successfully completed all of its previously announced financing initiatives in July 2016. The new long-term financial platform is expected to contribute more than USD 500 million in improved liquidity in the period through 2020. This initiative, as well as the continued strong operating cash flow, is expected to cover all of the medium-term liquidity requirements. Further, all of the Company`s capital commitments are fully financed.
"We have reduced costs and increased efficiency while maintaining focus on operations, delivering on the Catcher project and strengthening our ability to provide cost-effective production solutions to the oil and gas industry."
