DOE POISED TO PUSH EXPORTS OF U.S. OIL EQUIPMENT, SERVICES
The U.S. Department of Energy plans to create an office to promote exports of American oil field equipment and services. Deputy Energy Sec. W. Henson Moore has pushed the initiative, saying that small U.S. service and supply companies often are at a competitive disadvantage when they seek contracts overseas (OGJ, Nov. 20, 1989, p. 30). He planned to announce the move at a Tampa, Fla., meeting of the Petroleum Equipment Suppliers Association last week.
