When I saw the news about the sale of Aker Solutions, all these years in Norway flashed in my eyes.
The slide in oil prices that started in 2014 has put immense financial pressure on companies such as Aker Solutions that provide services and equipment to explorers, spurring takeover activity in the sector. General Electric agreed in October to merge its subsea arm with Baker Hughes Inc., months after Baker’s sale to rival Halliburton Co. unraveled. FMC was sold to Technip. Cameron to Schlumberger.
According to Bloomberg News, Aker ASA, controlled by Norwegian billionaire Kjell Rokke, is considering a sale of offshore-engineering business Aker Solutions ASA.
During all these years Aker Solutions became part of my life. I learned so much. I was working and sharing with great people.
Well... I thank you all for the wonderful time!
