The sector is alive with the sound of M&A

In the oil and gas services segment we have two.

Nabors & Superior:

Nabors Industries Ltd. (Nabors) (NYSE: NBR) and Superior Well Services, Inc. (Superior Well Services) (Nasdaq: SWSI) today announced that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement whereby Nabors will acquire Superior Well Services.

And Seadrill & Allis-Chalmers:

Seadrill's majority owned subsidiary Seawell Limited and Allis-Chalmers Energy Inc. announce that their Boards of Directors have unanimously approved a definitive merger agreement providing for the acquisition of Allis-Chalmers by Seawell in a transaction valued at approximately US$890 million (including assumed debt)

Meanwhile in the Subcontinent, Cairn India, has a new shareholder:

Cairn to sell a maximum of 51 per cent of Cairn India to Vedanta for a consideration of up to US $8,480m

They used to say that when oil prices were low, the cheapest place to drill was on Wall Street. I guess with the current political inaccessibility of reserves, today's oil price counts as low.
