06:17 EDTCEO, SHI, HAL, PTR, SLBChina lacks experience with huge shale gas reserves, Reuters reports
China's plans to unlock what may be the world's biggest shale gas reserves risk running further behind after 16 firms were awarded exploration rights in the latest auction lacked one important skill - not one has drilled a gas well before, reports Reuters. The lack of experience exploiting shale among new firms scrambling to enter the sector will make it an even bigger challenge to get at the gas, and if they fail to deliver China will struggle to reduce its dependence on expensive imports of oil, liquefied natural gas and coal.Reference Link

Schlumberger Limited (SLB) and Cameron (CAM) jointly announced a definitive merger agreement in which the companies will combine in a stock and cash transaction. The agreement was unanimously approved by the boards of both companies. Under the terms of the agreement, Cameron shareholders will receive 0.716 shares of Schlumberger common stock and a cash payment of $14.44 in exchange for each Cameron share. Based on the closing stock prices of both companies on August 25, the agreement places a value of $66.36 per Cameron share, representing a 37.0% premium to Cameron's 20-day volume weighted average price of $48.45 per share, and a 56.3% premium to Cameron's most recent closing stock price of $42.47 per share. Upon closing, Cameron shareholders will own approximately 10% of Schlumberger's outstanding shares of common stock. The total transaction has a value of $14.8B as of August 25. Schlumberger expects to realize pretax synergies of approximately $300M-$600M in the first and second year, respectively.

Schlumberger also expects the combination to be accretive to EPS by the end of the first year after closing. The transaction combines two complementary technology portfolios into a "pore-to-pipeline" products and services offering to the global oil and gas industry. On a pro forma basis, the combined company had 2014 revenues of $59B. The transaction is subject to Cameron shareholders' approval, regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. It is anticipated that the closing of the transaction will occur in Q1 of 2016.
