Polarcus also recently entered into a contract with Eni for 3D seismic data acquisition services in Asia Pacific.
The project will have an expected minimum duration of one month.
Finally, it should start in Q1 2021, subject to relevant approvals.
The company has slipped deeper into the red in Q2 2020 as revenues dropped close to 66 per cent compared to prior year.

It generated quarterly revenues of $22.1 million, down from revenues of $64.8 million in the prior year comparable period.

The company reported backlog at the end of June of about $141 million.
