ExxonMobil, Rosneft: Stopp von Major-Bohraktivitäten aufgrund Russland-Sanktionen durch die EU und die USA

ExxonMobil (NYE:XOM) und Rosneft "müssen" ihre Geschäftsaktivitäten im arktischen Norden von Russland bei einer ganz wichtigen und heiß debattierten Bohrung vorerst niederlegen.

Exxon reportedly halts drilling at Russian Arctic well 

Carl Surran, SA News Editor
  • Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) has halted drilling at the Universitetskaya-1 well off Russia's remote northern coast, Bloomberg reports, in what would be the first tangible evidence that sanctions are slowing energy investment in the country.
  • Work is said to have stopped a few days after the U.S. and EU barred companies from helping Russia exploit Arctic, deepwater or shale oil fields.
  • U.S. sanctions gave American companies until Sept. 26 to stop all restricted drilling and testing services, which means XOM and Seadrill's (NYSE:SDRL) North Atlantic Drilling (NYSE:NADL) unit would be under the gun to finish or temporarily seal the $700M well they are developing with Rosneft (OTC:RNFTF).
  • "This has been one of the most-watched wells in the industry, so this is a huge deal," an analyst says.
