“In the third quarter the majority of our vessel capacity was utilized on proprietary contract work primarily in Northwest Europe and West Africa, and we experienced a sequential rate improvement.

The Canada MultiClient projects for two Ramform Titan-class vessels comprised most of our MultiClient acquisition activity in the quarter. This is the 11th year in a row with solid MultiClient projects offshore East Coast Canada. Our overall pre-funding level for the quarter ended at 101%.

MultiClient late sales suffered from continued low spending among energy companies. With a strong oil price, increasing concern over energy supply and unsustainably low investment levels, we expect sales from our MultiClient data library to improve going forward, including a seasonal increase in Q4.

We have an order book of $241 million, which is an increase of 50% compared to same quarter last year. For our vessel operations, we are experiencing a seasonally lower activity level and some standby time following the end of the North Atlantic acquisition season. However, there is a healthy volume of contract sales leads and active tenders in the market. We expect the positive acquisition market sentiment experienced over the last quarters to extend into next year and we are already seeing strong demand for new acquisition during Q2 and Q3 2022.

We expect that Segment revenues for the full year 2021 will be higher than for 2020. With the improving cash flow in Q3, increased cash position and a continued market recovery we expect to be in position to repay our 2022 debt maturities by cash flow and refinancing our 2023 and 2024 maturities, in line with the plan at the time of agreeing the revised maturity profile.” Rune Olav Pedersen, President and Chief Executive Officer

PGS expects the oil price level and the ongoing global recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic to continue to drive a gradual demand improvement for seismic services. Energy consumption is expected to continue to increase longer term with oil and gas remaining an important part of the energy mix as the global energy transition evolves. Offshore reserves will be vital for future energy supply and support demand for marine seismic services. The ongoing contract market recovery is likely to also benefit from fewer seismic vessels operating in the international market compared to pre Covid. Starting in 2022 we expect to see an increasing demand for seismic acquisition services related to carbon capture and storage projects.

PGS expects full year 2021 gross cash costs to be in the range of $400-420 million.

2021 MultiClient cash investments are expected to be approximately $125 million.

Approximately 35% of 2021 active 3D vessel time is expected to be allocated to MultiClient acquisition.

Capital expenditures for 2021 is expected to be approximately $40 million.

The order book totaled $241 million on September 30, 2021 (including $51 million relating to MultiClient). On June 30, 2021, and September 30, 2020, the order book was $255 million and $160 million, respectively.
