Muşat & Asociaţii assisted Petrofac, one of the major international players in the oil industry services, included in the FTSE 100 Index and listed on the London Stock Exchange with the symbol (PEC), in taking over the oil drilling operations in the Ţicleni area. Further to the agreement, concluded for a period of 15 years, Petrofac will manage and re-develop nine onshore deposits, providing the necessary expertise and engineering, while Petrom will continue to be the holder of the concession agreement and of the hydrocarbon production.
“The conclusion of this agreement marks the entering of one of the leading international players in the oil industry services on the local market.
