Songa Offshore SE reports total revenue for the fourth quarter 2015 of USD 159 million and EBITDA of USD 103 million.
Operating revenue in the fourth quarter 2015 was USD 132.1 million, compared to USD 65.0 million in the fourth quarter 2014. The increase is primarily due to Songa Trym contract cancellation fee of USD 41.1 million, revenue contribution from Songa Equinox from 7 December, and from Songa Dee being out of service for the SPS for a period in the fourth quarter 2014.
Other revenue in the fourth quarter 2015 was USD 18.3 million, compared to USD 11.5 million in the fourth quarter 2014. The increase is primarily due to the remaining Songa Trym deferred revenue being realized in the fourth quarter due to the contract cancellation.

While we experienced startup challenges with Songa Equinox and Songa Endurance, the legacy fleet had another quarter with 100% operational uptime and with further reductions in operating cost.”,
