Baker Hughes Acquires Nova Technology Corporation
Baker Hughes has acquired Nova Technology Corporation of Broussard, Louisiana for approximately $70 million in cash and assumed debt. Nova is a leading supplier of permanent monitoring, chemical injection systems, and multi-line services for deepwater and subsea oil and gas well applications and has contracts in the Gulf of Mexico, West Africa, Sakhalin Island and Brazil.
"The acquisition of Nova supports our focus on providing the industry's
best-in-class production optimization technologies and services," said Rod
