Polarcus cutting by 20%

Shame - more pain for the sector. Not clear how many boats they have running.

This might impact on DUG as well, as DUG provide their processing and onboard processing technology.

As I've commented before, acquisition is the tip of the spear and the start of the value chain; they suffer first in a downturn but are first to recover. Less data collected means less processing and less interpretation, so fewer geophysics roles.

Polarcus seems to follow the fate of Dubai where its headquarters is.

They both rise and fall on the oil price I suspect; while Dubai's not a bit producer/exporter there are plenty of businesses (and ex-pats) there servicing the oil industry in the surrounding nations. Not a cheap place to operate out of in some ways, and not all that close to the major offshore explorers.
