As described above, the unique nature of the hazards in oil and gas well drilling and servicing were reemphasized during the PSM rulemaking when OSHA exempted oil and gas well drilling and servicing in anticipation of a standard covering these activities.

The purchase comes as large oil and gas international companies are increasingly reshuffling their portfolios as rising oil prices drive costs in mature oil regions or smaller refineries, presenting advisory opportunities for banks and boutiques specializing in the sector.

Standard Chartered said the acquisition is subject to certain regulatory consents, and expects to complete the purchase by late October.

It is a matter of record that the oil workers in the service of the expropriated companies enjoyed wages and working conditions superior to those of the workmen of any other industry in Mexico.
