Proserv Group recently formed a strategic partnership with Houston-based Dril-Quip Inc. that will allow for a bundled offering for subsea customers from the oilfield service providers.
In this exclusive video interview, Proserv Controls CEO Davis Larssen explains the driving factors behind the agreement with Dril-Quip and what it means for the subsea sector.
“The overall market is declining—everybody knows that—so you have to think differently,” Larssen told Hart Energy’s Jessica Morales. “There is a general overcapacity in the broader subsea market. Dril-Quip has taken a very smart step to address that and rather than unnecessarily compete with somebody, partner with somebody.”

Occidental Petroleum will resume its share repurchase program this quarter after reaching its $20 billion net debt target, CFO Robert Peterson also said during the call.
"None" of Icahn's nominees "possess skills, experience or expertise that are additive or superior to our existing directors," wrote Occidental CEO Vicki Hollub and Chairman Eugene Batchelder.
Activist investor Carl Icahn formally launched a proxy fight against Occidental Petroleum to win control of four board seats after talks with the oil company's CEO failed to reach an agreement.
