In addition, Prosafe continues to see an increase in enquiries from potential clients and is optimistic that there will be additional tenders and/or direct awards in the North Sea in the coming months with a particular focus on 2025 onwards.
Terje Askvig says, “I am very excited to have joined Prosafe as the new CEO on 1 November. Prosafe is the market leader in our niche, has a great team with fully integrated operations and some of the best and most modern vessels in the market. The oil service industry is on a positive trajectory with clients increasing spending as a result of the favourable oil price and a renewed focus on maintenance. The accommodation vessel market is late cyclical and driven by hook ups and maintenance work. We see favourable supply/demand dynamics going into 2025, and increasingly so in the years beyond. We already see increased tendering activity. This, in combination with the fact that Prosafe is fully funded to 2025, following the NOK 350 million private placement in October, means we are well positioned to capitalize on the market ahead. Prosafe will continue its strategy of seeking sustainable rates in a tightening market.”
Prosafe is a leading owner and operator of semi-submersible accommodation vessels. The company is listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange with ticker code PRS. For more information, please refer to https://www.prosafe.com
