The drastic decline of the oil price in recent months has not yet affected Welltec noticeably, but the company's CFO, Jesper Helmuth Larsen, cannot rule out that this will happen, he tells ShippingWatch.

Welltec's revenue grew 15 percent in the 3rd quarter, to USD 89 million, and the company's operating profit improved to USD 24 million, from USD 14 million in the same period last year.
