Atle Jacobsen, Dolphin Group CEO, commented, “Dolphin continues to deliver solid earnings from a fleet, which is soon to be doubled in size. We experience improved market conditions ahead and Dolphin becomes an even more attractive service provider as major clients experience our efficient operations with modern high capacity vessels. We see effective day-rates continue to increase, however for our clients, Dolphin vessels provide more seismic volume data for less money, which enable clients to better assess their overall exploration and production risks."
