Russians receive Halliburton equipment despite its withdrawal

Sep 17, 2023

Russia continues to receive equipment manufactured by Halliburton, one of the world's largest suppliers of oil and gas exploration products and services. This is not prevented by Halliburton's withdrawal from the Russian market.


This is reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to The Guardian.

The British edition of The Guardian received Russian customs documents, which revealed that Halliburton subsidiaries continued to export equipment to Russia. It was mainly shipped from the United States via Singapore.

The bulk of exports from Halliburton's subsidiaries ended in October last year, but after a break, equipment supplies to Russia resumed in December 2022 from two unrelated companies. Russians imported Halliburton products from Turkey.

The equipment exported to Russia ranged from pumps to wrenches for drilling wells and cement additives. Most of the equipment was sent to the former Halliburton company known as BurService, whose clients include Gazprom, Rosneft, TNK-BP and Lukoil.

The Guardian notes that the export of Halliburton equipment continued at least until the end of June 2023. In response to The Guardian's request, the company said that it does not have operations in Russia.
