Official: Schlumberger sends new claim to antitrust on EDC
SOCHI, Feb 8 (PRIME) -- U.S. Schlumberger has submitted a new request to acquire a stake in RussiaТs Eurasia Drilling Company (EDC) to the Federal Antimonopoly Service, Head of the Service Igor Artemyev told reporters on Thursday.
УThey sent a new petition, it arrived two days ago. My colleagues are looking into it now,Ф Artemyev said.
EDC said in July 2017 that its shareholders approved selling a 51% stake in the company to U.S. oilfield servicing giant Schlumberger. In November, the antimonopoly serviceТs Deputy Director Andrei Tsyganov told PRIME that the service and Schlumberger were working on a mechanism to protect the companyТs investment into EDC and of economic interests of Russia in case of new Western sanctions.
