MOSCOW, April 2 Russia's biggest oilfield
services company Eurasia Drilling said on Tuesday its
2012 net income jumped 35 percent, year-on-year, to $382 million
on the back of strong demand.
The company also said it had signed a new agreement with
Russia's second-largest oil producer LUKOIL for
onshore drilling and completion operations, running through to
the end of 2015.
The group's revenues increased 17 percent to $3.2 billion,
while earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation and
amortisation (EBITDA) rose 31 percent to $790 million, slightly
above its guidance.
