The fate of the Halliburton and Baker Hughes’ mega merger will be decided by July 11.
The European Commission’s investigation into the $35billion deal has resumed after throwing on the breaks in February.
The investigation was stalled after the companies handed over new information regarding assets they had earmarked as potential divestments. Halliburton could offload up to $7.5billin in assets in a bid to close the bid.
The commission will deliver its final decision by July 11, according to its own filing.
Canada, Colombia, Ecuador, Kazakhstan, South Africa and Turkey have all given the deal the go-ahead.
Baker Hughes and Halliburton are currently working towards an April 30 deadline to close the deal.
