Civeo Corporation Secures C$64 Million in New Lodging Contracts

HOUSTON, April 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Civeo Corporation ("Civeo" or the "Company") (NYSE:CVEO), one of the largest integrated providers of workforce accommodations, logistics and facility management services to the natural resource industry, today announced that it has won four new contracts totaling C$64 million in aggregate value. As a result of these contracts, Civeo will support four different projects that service oil sands mines in the Athabasca region, natural gas production in northwest Alberta, and a gold mine in British Columbia.

The new contracts include:

  • An accommodations contract to support an oil sands customer that is undertaking a facility turnaround in the second quarter of 2015. Civeo will provide up to 1,800 rooms at its Athabasca and Beaver River lodges for two to three months;
  • An operations and general construction contract under which 80 rooms at the Company's Beaver River lodge will be used through 2017 to support a customer's ongoing bitumen mining operations and general construction services in the oil sands region;
  • The extension of a catering and operations services contract, supporting 700 rooms in the northwest Alberta region, for an additional two years. This award is the continuation of a contract under which Civeo has been providing catering services to a customer since January 2014 supporting the customer's construction and operation of a natural gas production facility; and
  • A manufacturing contract in western British Columbia under which Civeo will build and install a 327-bed camp for a gold-mining customer. Civeo expects to complete the installation by early in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Civeo opened its Athabasca Lodge in April 2015, following the temporary closure of the facility due to low occupancy in November 2014. After the turnaround contract described above is complete, the Company will reassess the need for the Athabasca Lodge to remain open.

These contracts reduce the uncontracted revenue included in the Company's full year 2015 guidance for revenue and EBITDA. Additionally, these contracts will not impact the Company's capital expenditure guidance for 2015.
