In the FTSE 250-listed group's results statement, ContourGlobal president and chief executive Joseph C. Brandt said he remains positive on the company's commitment to double underlying earnings (EBITDA) within five years of its initial public offering, which was in in 2017.

“Supplying all parts of the world with the electricity they need requires over US$1.5 trillion of annual investment over the next decade,” he said. “Most of this investment will be in renewable generation and low-carbon base-load generation such as natural gas and combined heat and power.”
