Q5000 Commences Contract Operations

Helix Energy Solutions Group, Inc. (NYSE:HLX) announced today that the Q5000 commenced operations and is working on contracted rates after resolving the previously disclosed start-up issues related to certain subsea equipment.

Although commercial discussions regarding this matter are not concluded and therefore there is still uncertainty surrounding the full financial impact of the equipment start-up issues, the Company currently believes that the range of its previously issued guidance should accommodate this impact. The Company will update guidance at its next earnings release.
