The oil and gas market is stabilising. Oil prices have risen to above US$ 60 per barrel Brent and clients are increasingly taking final investment decisions regarding new offshore field developments.
As there is still overcapacity in the market, it is uncertain at what pace the challenging pricing environment in oil field services will improve. In the building & infrastructure and renewables markets Fugro expects continued growth, driven by global economic growth, population growth, urbanisation and an ongoing shift towards renewable energy.
As the oil and gas market is stabilising and other markets are growing, Fugro expects stabilising revenue, an improved EBIT margin and a positive cash flow from operating activities after investments. Capex is expected to be around EUR 80 million.
