Cal Dive International, Inc. reports second quarter 2013 results and announces additional Pemex contract award of US$40-million.

Cal Dive International, Inc. (NYSE: DVR) reported a second quarter 2013 loss of $1.7 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, on revenues of $121.0 million, which compares to a loss of $5.7 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, on revenues of $120.3 million for the second quarter 2012.

The latest Pemex contract is for the procurement, installation and commissioning of 3.5 kilometers of 20 inch subsea pipeline and associated tie-ins to an existing platform. The offshore construction is expected to commence toward the end of the fourth quarter 2013 with the remainder of the work expected to be performed during the first quarter 2014.

Commenting on the results and the contract award, Cal Dive’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Quinn Hébert, stated, “The second quarter saw increased revenue and profitability from all of our international regions. For the quarter our international revenues increased by over 60% when compared to the second quarter 2012 and accounted for 65% of our total consolidated revenues. We continue to focus on our strategy of expanding our international operations, and expect that approximately 70% of our total 2013 annual consolidated revenues will come from international locations, led by work in Mexico.

“The U.S. Gulf of Mexico shallow water market overall continued to be sluggish during the second quarter and the work season had a late start due to weather during April and into May. Furthermore, we experienced a decline in the profitability of our two derrick barges year-over-year.

The Pacific was in drydock much of the quarter but was fully utilized during second quarter last year on a large decommissioning project, and the Atlantic had low utilization in the quarter due to permitting delays for salvage and decommissioning projects and inclement weather at the very end of June.

However, the outlook for the salvage and decommissioning market remains steady and these two assets are expected to have good utilization during the third quarter.”
