“Since the start of this conflict, we prioritised employee safety and compliance with all relevant sanctions.”

Halliburton’s rival firm Schlumberger has announced that it has halted new investment and technology deployment to its Russian operations, amid the ongoing crisis. Despite this, it will continue existing activity in line with international laws and sanctions.

In a statement, Schlumberger CEO Olivier Le Peuch said: “We continue to actively monitor this dynamic situation, and will fulfil any existing activity in full compliance with applicable international laws and sanctions.

“Safety and security are at the core of who we are as a company, and we urge a cessation of the conflict and a restoration of safety and security in the region.”

Several energy companies have announced their departure or suspension of activities in Russia after the latter launched a military operation on Ukraine.

This includes Shell, BP, and Equinor, among others.

Russia is one of the largest petroleum producers in the world, and exports approximately seven to eight million barrels of oil products daily, according to Reuters.
