Atle Jacobsen,Dolphin Group CEO,commented:
"Dolphin's current fleet of four vessels delivered revenues of USD 68 million, a respective operating margin of 20% and a pre-tax profit of USD 10.5 million for the second quarter of 2013. Our actual and pre-announced quarterly numbers were below expectations primarily due to field specific simultaneous operations on the producing fields where Dolphin acquired seismic."
"The successful completion of complex 4D seismic surveys over the producing fields, Gullfaks, Troll, Grane and Greater York fields, has secured Dolphin a valuable track record with large clients for these types of strategically important production seismic contracts"
