Hamilton, Bermuda (November 6, 2020)
Third quarter 2020 highlights
Dag Skindlo, CEO of Archer, comments:
“Despite the reduction in activity in the quarter, Archer continue to generate positive operating cash flow and to reduce its net interest-bearing debt substantially. The improved liquidity combined with the announced amendments to our loan facility enhances Archer’s financial flexibility going forward.
The reduced activity-level is predominantly related to our Land Drilling operations in Argentina, where the government-imposed lockdown adversely impacted the quarter. Towards the end of the quarter we experienced a modest increase in activity in Argentina. With the announced gas subsidy regulation in Argentina to stimulate local gas production, we expect the activity to increase going forward, and Archer is well positioned to benefit from the stimulation package.
Furthermore, we have successfully secured additional backlog in our platform drilling segment, by the two contract extensions awarded for a total of 14 installations on the UK shelf”.
