SBM Offshore First Quarter 2022 Trading Update


May 12, 2022


  • Year-to-date Directional1 revenue of US$970 million, in line with expectation
  • Full year 2022 Revenue and EBITDA guidance maintained
  • Cash dividend of US$1 per ordinary share paid, 13% year-on-year increase and representing c. 7% yield2
  • FPSO Liza Unity delivered on time and on budget
  • FPSO ONE GUYANA award confirmed, to be added to the backlog

Bruno Chabas, CEO of SBM Offshore, commented:

“Despite the challenging environment, following SBM Offshore’s performance over the first quarter of 2022 we maintain our full year guidance.

We continue to adapt to the impacts of the pandemic plus now the increased pressure on the worldwide supply chain resulting from the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. The margin expectation from our Turnkey portfolio remains robust.

The successful delivery of FPSO Liza Unity in February 2022 once again demonstrates SBM Offshore’s unique capability in executing large FPSO projects. Following the FPSO ONE GUYANA award confirmation, we are delivering growth in our construction portfolio and orderbook, with 5 FPSOs under construction. Our focus remains the safe and reliable execution of this portfolio.

We have paid out US$1 cash dividend per share, representing a yield c. 7% based on year-end 2021 market capitalization. This, combined with our c. 30-year cash flow visibility from our backlog, reflects once again the Company’s capacity for sustained cashflow generation going forward.

Finally, as part of our New Energies business, the Company has joined forces with a partner to develop the world’s largest floating wind turbine (16MW) using the Float4Wind™ TLP (Tension Leg Platform) technology. The pilot project remains subject to final investment decision.

Backlog calculation will be provided in HY22 Earnings Update

Underlying Directional revenues for the first quarter of the year came in at US$970 million compared with US$536 million in the same period of 2021. This increase is driven by a higher contribution from the Turnkey segment benefiting from the divestment of a 45% interest in FPSOs Alexandre de Gusmão and Almirante Tamandaré combined with construction progress to date.

Underlying Lease and Operate revenue increased by 6% year-on-year as a result of FPSO Liza Unity joining the fleet in February 2022, partly offset by the effects from the FPSO Cidade de Anchieta shutdown and no contribution from Deep Panuke platform in 2022.

Year to date, net debt stands at US$5.1 billion supporting ongoing investments in growth. The decrease in net debt compared with year-end 2021 resulted from the earlier described divestments and working capital movements. Nearly all the Company’s debt is project related and as such becomes non-recourse following project execution finalization and release of the Parent Company Guarantee.

Project Review

Construction activities for the Company’s major projects continue to be impacted by the effects of the pandemic and in particular response measures in China. The current conflict between Russia and Ukraine is adding pressure on price inflation and the global supply chain. Project teams are working closely with both client teams and suppliers to mitigate the impacts on projects’ execution. The degree to which these challenges can be mitigated going forward varies from project to project. The profitability of SBM Offshore’s overall project portfolio remains robust and competitive. An update on the status of individual projects is provided below.

FPSO Liza Unity - The FPSO Liza Unity safely started production offshore Guyana in February 2022 and the teams are working to complete the remaining commissioning activities.

FPSO Sepetiba - The topsides modules have successfully and safely been lifted on board. Integration and commissioning activities are ongoing. The project targets first oil in 2023.

FPSO Prosperity - The work in dry dock has been completed with the mooring and riser support systems installed. The topsides fabrication is ongoing in the yard in Singapore. First oil is likely to occur before year-end 2023.

FPSO Almirante Tamandaré - The topsides fabrication and the Fast4Ward® Multi-Purpose Floater (MPF) hull’s construction are progressing in China and Brazil. The project continues to target first oil in the second half of 2024.

FPSO Alexandre de Gusmão - Following the achievement of steel cutting milestone ahead of plan, site construction activities in fabrication yards are progressing in China and Brazil. First oil is expected in 2025.

FPSO ONE GUYANA - The Fast4Ward® MPF hull has been delivered. Engineering and procurement are progressing in line with project schedule. First oil is expected in 2025.

Fast4Ward® MPF hulls
The six MPF hulls ordered to date under the Company’s Fast4Ward® program have been allocated to projects. Four hulls have been delivered and the remaining two are under construction.

Fleet Operational Update

FPSO Cidade de Anchieta – The unit remains in shutdown, while the inspection and repair works to the hull are being completed. Investigation into the root cause of the problem is progressing, and the Company is aligning with the client and authorities on the planning for the restart of production.

Despite the continued challenges brought by the pandemic the fleet uptime during the first quarter of 2022 was 94.2% and the fleet’s underlying performance was 99.6% excluding FPSO Cidade de Anchieta.


The Company’s Total Recordable Injury Frequency Rate stands below the annual target of 0.15.

Post-Period Events


On April 6, 2022, shareholders of the Company voted in favor of the proposed dividend of US$1 per ordinary share, which represents an increase of 13% compared to last year. It resulted in a dividend distribution of €0.9137 per ordinary share. The dividend was paid on May 4, 2022 to all shareholders of record as at April 11, 2022.


The Company’s 2022 Directional revenue guidance is maintained at above US$3.1 billion, of which around US$1.6 billion is expected from the Lease and Operate segment and above US$1.5 billion from the Turnkey segment. 2022 Directional EBITDA guidance is maintained at around US$900 million for the Company.

This guidance considers the currently foreseen impacts from both the pandemic and the conflict between Russia and Ukraine on projects and fleet operations. The Company highlights that the direct and indirect effects of these events could continue to have a material impact on the Company’s business and results and the realization of the guidance for 2022.
