our operations and cost competitiveness. The measures implemented will
continue to take effect throughout 2016 and into 2017. The contract
visibility remains short term.

Being adaptive and having the ability to respond quickly to market changes is
the key to manage the business successfully. The remainder of 2016 and 2017
will be challenging for the oil and gas industry" says Mr David Wells, CEO of
