The numbers speak for themselves when it comes to the situation in the North Sea for the supply carriers - and more specifically for the Norwegian offshore shipowner Siem Offshore, which suffered a deficit in the second quarter of USD 45 million. In the first six months of the year, the carrier booked a total deficit after taxes of USD 70.6 million, compared to a profit of USD 29.9 million in the same period last year, according to the interim report on Thursday.
