André Goedée, Chief Executive Officer Dockwise, commented: "The third quarter has seen good operational progress. In particular, we are encouraged to see the Fairstar acquisition fulfilling our plans with a full roster of Logistics Management work on the Gorgon project and a strong contribution to Group financial performance from the existing three vessels.


 
Looking ahead to the final two new build Fairstar vessels, we see strategic advantages both in terms of the markets they will serve and the rejuvenation of the fleet with capex savings.  The Finesse will join the fleet in the fourth quarter and will be fully deployed through 2013.  Redesign of the White Marlin would give us valuable commercial flexibility, while also saving the cost of converting the Black Marlin and keeping her operational during a critical period.


 
Tendering remains busy and we continue to be encouraged by the medium term view of our clients' industries.  While awards are not made at regular intervals, and timing of execution may in some cases be shifting, we are confident there will be opportunities to establish new backlog records in the future."
