OneSubsea Announcement

HOUSTON, November 15, 2012 - Cameron and Schlumberger today announced the creation of OneSubsea™, a joint venture to manufacture and develop products, systems and services for the subsea oil and gas market. This new company will offer a step change in reservoir recovery for the subsea oil and gas industry through integration and optimization of the entire production system over the life of the field. The integration of the production system will be accomplished by combining superior reservoir knowledge and wellbore technologies, with industry leading subsea technologies, all together delivering enhanced productivity, reliability and integrity.

Cameron and Schlumberger have 60/40 ownership of the joint venture, respectively, and the transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. Cameron, with its long history of innovation and firsts in the subsea market, is an industry leader in design capability, manufacturing excellence and successful installations. Schlumberger brings a deep understanding of the reservoir, and industry-leading well completions, subsea processing and integration platform.

Under the terms of the formation agreement, Cameron will contribute its existing subsea division and receive $600 million from Schlumberger. Schlumberger will contribute its Framo, Surveillance, Flow Assurance and Power and Controls businesses. Cameron will manage the joint venture and will consolidate it for financial reporting purposes. Cameron will reflect minority interest in its financial statements for Schlumberger's interest in the JV.

Cameron Chairman, President and CEO, Jack B. Moore said, "Our new venture with Schlumberger provides a powerful marriage of their oilfield services technology and our subsea equipment heritage. It leverages Cameron's flow control expertise, world class manufacturing and aftermarket capabilities."

Schlumberger CEO Paal Kibsgaard commented, "This new joint venture, which combines the forces of two world-class companies, is uniquely positioned to optimize complete subsea production systems and help our customers improve production and recovery from their subsea developments. The broad scientific and technology platform that Schlumberger brings will enable a total system approach, leading to a unique and differentiated offering in this rapidly growing market".

A key priority of the joint venture will be strengthening research and engineering investment, including complementary projects with the parent companies, towards the integration of the complete subsea production system from pore space to the export point, in order to unlock reservoir potential from our customer's subsea developments. 

Credit Suisse acted as financial advisor to Cameron. Goldman, Sachs & Co. acted as financial advisor to Schlumberger.
