Halliburton's Drilling and Formation Evaluation division, part of the company's Energy Services Group, announced that it has closed the previously announced acquisition of all intellectual property, current assets and existing business associated with Calgary-based Ultraline Services Corporation, a division of Savanna Energy Services Corp.
