Anton Oilfield Services

Anton provides oilfield services. The group's operations historically focused on China, including the Tarim, Erdos and Sichuan Basins. However overseas operations accounted for two thirds of its order backlog at 31 March 2018 and nearly half of 1Q18 new orders came from overseas markets including Iraq, Kazakhstan and Pakistan. Anton's services include oil and gas field development technical services, such as drilling and well completion. It also offers tubular services, including tubular inspection, repair and leasing. Customers include subsidiaries and affiliates of Chinese national oil and gas companies, such as CNPC, Sinopec, CNOOC and Shaanxi Yanchang Petroleum. The oilfield services industry in China is highly competitive. State-owned companies dominate the low-end market for large-scale drilling equipment with basic technology. Projects requiring more advanced technology are usually handled by international firms or independent companies such as Anton. (31 Aug 2018)
