Halliburton Announces Third Quarter 2017 Results
  • Income from continuing operations of $0.42 per diluted share

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 23, 2017-- Halliburton Company (NYSE:HAL) announced today income from continuing operations of $365 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2017. This compares to income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2017 of $28 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, and adjusted income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2017 of $201 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, excluding a fair market value adjustment related to Venezuela.

We had a strong quarter and I am very pleased with our results. Our North American business is hitting on all cylinders and our international business proved resilient in a challenging environment. These results demonstrate why Halliburton is the execution company,” remarked Jeff Miller, President and CEO.

“Total company revenue was $5.4 billion, representing a 10% increase compared to the second quarter of this year. Total operating income was over $630 million, primarily driven by continued strengthening of market conditions in North America and improved profitability in our Drilling and Evaluation product lines. We outgrew our peers on a global basis demonstrating that we are taking market share globally, and we generated industry leading returns.

“The Drilling and Evaluation division revenue increased 4% and operating margins expanded by 260 basis points to approximately 9%, demonstrating solid execution in our international franchise.

“The Completion and Production division revenue increased by 13% in the third quarter and operating margins improved by 215 basis points, despite the approximately 50 basis point negative impact of hurricane Harvey. This was driven by improved activity and pricing throughout North America land in our pressure pumping, completion tools and cementing product service lines.

“Our North American revenue increased by 14%, significantly outperforming the average sequential U.S. land rig count growth of 6%. I am pleased with the progress we made this quarter towards our goal of normalized margins in North America, demonstrating that our strategy is working.

“Outside North America, our conservative outlook for the last several quarters is proving accurate. Our international organization has shown impressive control over their costs and their commitment to making the toughest of markets sustainable.

“Halliburton is proud to be a service company and we believe our investors and customers appreciate that. I am confident we are working on the right things that create the most value and generate the highest returns. Our strong competitive position is not purely a function of geographic footprint. It is demonstrated in the depth of the products and services that we provide to our customers and use to generate industry leading returns for our shareholders,” concluded Miller.

Operating Segments

Completion and Production

Completion and Production revenue in the third quarter of 2017 was $3.5 billion, an increase of $405 million, or 13%, from the second quarter of 2017, while operating income was $525 million, an increase of $128 million. These increases were primarily due to improved utilization and pricing throughout the United States land sector in the majority of our product service lines, as well as contributions from our recent artificial lift acquisition. Additionally, spring break-up recovery and activity in pressure pumping and completion tools benefitted Canada. Internationally, new contracts in Brazil and increased activity in the Middle East improved results.

Drilling and Evaluation

Drilling and Evaluation revenue in the third quarter of 2017 was $1.9 billion, an increase of $82 million, or 4%, from the second quarter of 2017, while operating income was $180 million, an increase of $55 million. These increases were primarily due to increased drilling activity in the Middle East, North America and Latin America. In the Eastern Hemisphere, growth in our Consulting and Project Management product line was partially offset by activity declines across Asia Pacific.

Geographic Regions

North America

North America revenue in the third quarter of 2017 was $3.2 billion, a 14% increase sequentially, relative to a 6% increase in average U.S. rig count. This improvement was driven primarily by increased utilization and pricing throughout the United States land sector in the majority of our product service lines, primarily pressure pumping, as well as higher well completion and pressure pumping activity in Canada.

International

International revenue in the third quarter of 2017 was $2.3 billion, a 4% increase sequentially, resulting primarily from increased activity across multiple product services lines in Latin America, and increased pressure pumping services and drilling activity in the Eastern Hemisphere.

Latin America revenue in the third quarter of 2017 was $530 million, a 4% increase sequentially, driven by increased activity in Argentina, higher production group activity in Brazil and increased drilling activity in Mexico. These results were partially offset by reduced well completion activity in Venezuela.

Europe/Africa/CIS revenue in the third quarter of 2017 was $722 million, a 6% increase sequentially, primarily due to improved utilization in the majority of our product services lines in the North Sea and improved drilling and well completion services in Russia and Nigeria. These results were partially offset by reduced activity in Angola.

Middle East/Asia revenue in the third quarter of 2017 was $1.0 billion, a 3% increase sequentially, primarily resulting from increased drilling activity in the Middle East and project management activity in Indonesia, partially offset by reduced activity and pricing across Southeast Asia and lower project management activity in Iraq.

Selective Technology & Highlights

  • Halliburton announced the release of GeoTech HE™, a robust drill bit that incorporates new features and materials to deliver enhanced performance and increased reliability in today's high energy drilling systems characterized by very high weight-on-bit and drilling torque. Recent years have seen advances in drilling equipment and practices that have enabled operators to significantly increase energy and drilling speed to reduce costs. As a result, drill bits experience higher forces that challenge traditional design and significantly increase risk of damage. GeoTech HE bits are built to function in these challenging conditions.
  • In August 2017, Halliburton held its annual LIFE event, the oil and gas industry's premier business and technology conference, attracting super majors, independents, national oil companies, service companies and other participants from across the global exploration and production value chain. This year's forum addressed the challenges that companies face as they navigate a rapidly evolving landscape and how digital technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), cloud and big data analytics are transforming the way business is done.
  • Halliburton and Microsoft announced plans to enter into a strategic alliance to drive digital transformation across the oil and gas industry. The relationship will combine the expertise of global leaders in cloud and digital transformation and exploration and production science, software and services. Both companies will leverage and optimize Microsoft technologies in machine learning, augmented reality, user interactions and Industrial IoT, as well as Azure's high-performance infrastructure and built-in computing capabilities to deliver tightly integrated solutions across the energy value chain. As a first step in the alliance, Halliburton has made DecisionSpace® 365 available on Azure, enabling real-time data streaming from IoT edge devices in oilfields and the ability to apply deep-learning models to optimize drilling and production to lower costs for customers.
  • Sperry Drilling announced the release of Radian™ Azimuthal Gamma Ray and Inclination Service, a geosteering solution that provides real-time, high quality borehole images and continuous inclination measurements. This information provides operators with enhanced data to assist in the decision making of optimal well placement and better reservoir contact for increased production and lower costs per BOE.
