Shortly before it fell victim itself to takeover by Fugro, Robertson Research International acquired Energy Information Services Ltd (EIS ). EIS’ affiliate Energy Information Ventures Ltd (EIV) was also included in the deal.
The agreement provides for Robertson to invest in the further development of EIS and EIV’s specialist E & P databases, mapping systems, publications and other services. The companies will continue to operate from their Redhill, Surrey, base in the south of the United Kingdom.
Richard Fowler, Chief Executive of Robertson, commented, “The transaction provides Robertson with important expertise and data to complement and support its extensive product range. Within Robertson EIS and EIV will be able to expand their publications and data businesses.”
EIS MD John Hartley added, “'The acquisition signals a new era for EIS. The substantial expertise and resources of Robertson will allow EIS and EIV to provide improved services to their existing clients and to reach new customers all over the world. Initiatives for new publications are already underway.”
