HOUSTON, Sept. 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SAExploration Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:SAEX) (OTCBB:SAEXW) today announced three new project awards for onshore logistical support and seismic data acquisition services in North and South America, collectively valued at approximately $90 million. The largest of the three projects is a multi-year program, which SAE expects to begin during the fourth quarter of 2015 and complete in the first half of 2016. The other two projects are scheduled to be performed during the remainder of 2015.
Two of the projects will take place in the dense jungle rainforest of South America, with the third project set to be executed in Alaska. All three projects will cover different, yet equally challenging terrain and require specialized knowledge of the surrounding environments. SAE will provide a full suite of in-house logistical services in advance of and throughout the life of these projects, which will utilize currently available equipment and personnel. No new capital expenditures are required to execute these projects.
Brian Beatty, President and CEO of SAE, commented, “We are very pleased to receive these project awards, particularly in South America, which has been a comparatively difficult market for new business development during the last few quarters. While some areas within the region continue to offer limited visibility, we are excited to see overall activity improve. We view these new project awards as reinforcement of the strong fundamentals underlying our core markets and further validation of our competitive advantages and strategic differentiation.”
