The Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice has approved Baker Hughes Inc.'s (BHI) plan to sell Superior Energy Services two stimulation vessels (the HR Hughes and the Blue Ray) and some other assets used to perform sand control services in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico (see Daily GPI, July 7). The asset sale, expected to close by the end of August, is being conducted in connection with BHI's acquisition of BJ Services Co. (see Daily GPI, April 29). Once the Superior sale is closed BHI would be free to fully integrate BJ Services into its operations.
