EDC Asset Swap Complete

Eurasia Drilling Company and Schlumberger have completed a deal for swapping assets in Russia and the CIS valued at $345.5 million.

Eurasia Drilling Company, or EDC, said in its report for the first half of 2011 that it acquired Siberian Geophysical Company and Samotlor Capital Well Repair from Schlumberger.

The transaction is made up of $242.9 million in cash, while the remaining $102.6 million are EDC assets. Schlumberger has acquired NTS, Tekhgeoservis and Megionskoye Tamponazhnoye Upravleniye, which carry out well drilling and repair operations in western Siberia.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
