Baker Hughes has reached an agreement to divest its Russian oilfield services business (OFS Russia) to its local management team for an undisclosed price.

The deal follows on the American oilfield services provider’s previously announced suspension of new investments in its operations in Russia and commitment to adhere to appliable laws and sanctions.
