Cal Dive awarded Pemex contract and provides first quarter 2013 market update
Thursday, Mar 28, 2013
Cal Dive International, Inc. (NYSE:DVR) announced today that it has been awarded a contract by Pemex Exploración y Producción for the engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning of 12 kilometers of eight inch subsea pipeline and associated tie-ins on four existing platforms located in the Abkatun-Pol-Chuc Field in the Bay of Campeche. The contract is expected to generate total revenue of approximately $63 million and will utilize three of the Company’s vessels. The offshore construction is expected to commence in the third quarter 2013.
The Company is also providing an update on its previously disclosed expected first quarter results. The current expectation is that the first quarter results will be lower than those estimated during the fourth quarter 2012 earnings conference call but still significantly improved over first quarter of 2012. The primary reasons for the adjustment in estimate include zero utilization days in March for the dive support vessel Texas in West Africa due to the unexpected cancellation of its contracted work that was previously scheduled for the month due to a change in the client’s project plans, higher than expected employee medical costs, and lower than expected pricing for surface diving services in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
