Odfjell drilling q4 net result $-75 million (Reuters poll $2 million) . Usd 80 million in total impairment write-down of deepsea atlantic and deepsea stavanger . The drilling and oil service market remains weak, but there are however signs of market stabilization and a modestly increasing number of enquiries . Due to the substantial supply of new build rigs in recent years, especially in the UDW market (ultra deepwater), the gap between supply and demand is significant . The effect of the efficiency programs carried out by the oil companies have led to a substantial cost reduction in field development and production . This combined with an increased oil price is expected to lead to an increased activity level in the medium to long term .Within the next few years we believe the continued scrapping of older midwater and harsh environment units in combination with required exploration and development drilling will bring the harsh environment market back to balance and subsequent improved day rates.  Full Article
