Oil services company Baker Hughes calculated that devaluation of the Venezuelan currency from VEB 4.30 to VEB 6.30 per US dollar would unavoidably result in a USD 25 million loss this quarter, according to an annual report published on Wednesday.

The fall in the revenue of the oil services firm will represent some nine percent of the estimated average net income in the first quarter, Reuters reported.

Last Friday, the Venezuelan Government announced it would devalue its currency to bring relief to public finances. The adjustment in the foreign exchange rate entered into force this Wednesday.

Additionally, Baker Hughes' major rival, Halliburton Co. estimated that devaluation in Venezuela would lead to exchange losses amounting to some USD 30 million, around 6% of the expected revenue in the first quarter.

The El Perú police station, in El Callao municipality, south of Bolívar state, south Venezuela, came under sustained fire with more than 100 bullets smacking into its walls. According to police records, a gang of 15 gunmen identified as members of the so-called "mining unions" arrived on motorbikes in the evening of August 23 and began opening fire on the police station. They intended to get back a belt pack containing guns, bullets and memory storage devices.
