“As expected, our second quarter revenue declined 17% due to a decrease in subsea project work and the impact of COVID-19 on our maintenance-related business, most notably in the U.S. petrochemical and refinery market,” said Don Young, president and CEO of Aspen. “We did, however, experience year-over-year growth in on-shore project work globally, led by continued strong demand in the LNG market. In addition, our initiatives to reduce compensation, discretionary expenses and bill of material costs offset most of the impact of the decrease in revenue.”
