Owen Kratz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Helix, stated, 'Improved activity levels in our robotics segment plus strong utilization for the Well Enhancer and Skandi Constructor well intervention vessels led the way for the improved quarter over quarter results. However, industry conditions continue to remain challenging, and we expect Q4 results to be impacted by normal seasonal factors in the North Sea as well as a continuation of the weak industry environment.'
