The vessel was originally due for a yard stay and classing in 1Q 2016, which will be deferred. Ramform Viking’s in-sea equipment will now be deployed on vessels in operation. This should cut PGS’ capex related to maintenance in 2016 by around $50 million.
Earlier the company announced it would cold-stack the Ramform Explorer and Ramform Challenger after the end of this year’s North Europe acquisition season.
Cold-stacking the three vessels should reduce its quarterly cash costs by $25-30 million from 1Q 2016.
