Oceanografía SA de CV, PetroTour 2013 Takeaways

Oceanografia PetroTour 2013 takeaways

Oceanografia (OSA) hosted its ´Petrotour 2013´ last week, with management presentations, onshore site visits and tour to its vessels offshore, including the OSA Goliath and Caballo Marango. The company´s strong local standing was obvious with its location in the sweet spot, very close to the major Cantarell field. We got the chance to visit and inspect the OSA Goliath offshore (while working); It is undoubtedly a high capacity vessel that is being maintained well. Find below some key takeaways from the tour:

Oceanografia comments on current business:

  • Management of OSA held presentations and Q&As, sharing views on both OSA´s positioning and Pemex's ambitious plans
  • In line with comments on the Q3 conference call, the company believes it can achieve an EBITDA on par with 2012 this year.

Pemex plans and market outlook:

  • As previously highlighted, and confirmed in a recent meeting between Pemex and industry contractors, the National Oil Company aims to install 60 platforms (jacket and topside, meaning 120 installations) over the coming 5 years
  • Looking at crane capacity required, the Goliath seems very well positioned for a longer term contract related to this major workscope and the vessel is capable of doing around 60% of the work, with the residual requiring larger lift capacity
  • While timing of contract awards is being pushed somewhat, the current aim is to award contracts related to this in the April-June 2014 period - the contract format is still not finalized (lump sum or dayrate/work scope per contract)
  • This work will also draw significant additional tonnage of support vessels (logistics vessels, including PSVs and crew boats)
  • Pemex is currently in the process of renewing the offshore fleet, requiring vessels < 15 years old
  • Given Pemex plans it looks like there will be a undersupply of vessels in 2014/15, which underpins recent indications that Pemex is now looking internationally for capacity (PSVs) due to a shortage in the home market

Comments on OSA Goliath (and Caballo Marango):

  • Oceanografia gave a tour around the famous Cantarell field, being a cluster of platforms
  • Both the Goliath and Marango were working offshore; Goliath was hooking up pipelines to a platform, while the Marango was doing conventional repair and maintenance
  • No news on a new Goliath contract, however the existing contract seems likely to be extended into Q1. The company seems very comfortable that the vessel will continue to work continuously for Pemex, as it has been the recent 3 years. OSA might swap the vessel into the current Marango contract, if the latter vessel is successful on getting the 400 days+ contract that it is currently being bid on
  • In terms of the current condition of Goliath, we had the chance to get a full tour of the vessel; It is undoubtedly a high capacity vessel that is being well maintained
  • While the Goliath currently has V-Ships doing technical management (expected to be swapped with OSA people soon), the Marango is operated by OSA themselves - and as with the Goliath, Marango was also well maintained
