- Sevan Marine: Cost Increase for FPSO Sevan Voyageur
Friday, August 26, 2011
Sevan Marine ASA
Sevan Marine informed that the results for the second quarter of 2011 will be postponed until August 31, 2011. There will be no public presentation for 2Q-2011.
Following detailed project reviews and assessments on the FPSO Sevan Voyageur upgrade project, there has been identified additional costs to be incurred by the Company, resulting in a current cost estimate for the project in the range of USD 170-190 million. The increase from the previously announced cost estimate of USD 160-170 million is mainly a result of time related costs due to additional delays, in part as a result of the Company's challenging liquidity situation, as well as certain increased procurement costs for equipment and yard services. First oil is currently expected to take place during the second quarter of 2012. FPSO Sevan Voyageur is contracted to E.ON Ruhrgas UK E&P for the Huntington field in the UK North Sea. Estimated contract value is USD 535 million for the fixed term of five years. The contract has extension options.
The Board of Directors continues to hold constructive dialogue with bondholders and other relevant parties regarding a global restructuring of the Company's balance sheet.
