Only under such conditions the company can get the consent of the Russian authorities to purchase a stake in Eurasia Drilling Company.
But the terms of the purchase remain in question.
The only developed Arctic field for the near future will remain Prirazlomnoye in the Pechora Sea from Gazprom Neft.
Experts believe that now the deal will get permission from the antimonopoly service.
American Schlumberger filed a new application with the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) of Russia for the purchase of a stake in the Russian oil service company Eurasia Drilling Company (EDC).
Americans lost interest in the Russian producer of oil equipment.
The American oilfield service concern Schlumberger has agreed to buy a control stake in one of Russia's largest drilling companies, Eurasia Drilling. In 2015, the companies already agreed on the deal, but eventually it fell through.
As Forbes found out, the largest transaction in the domestic drilling business interferes with the interests of Igor Sechin.
Vagit Alekperov was close to the purchase of a stake in the company of another Forbes list member, Alexander Japaridze (Eurasia Drilling Company). Why did $1 billion deal fail?
