DALLAS,  Texas -  Halliburton  Company  (NYSE:  HAL)  and  Science  Applications
International Corporation (SAIC) announced today their intent to form a venture,
which will  provide  Web-based  portals  tailored  to enhance  the way  upstream
exploration and production (E&P) professionals are hosted in a high performance,
networked technical environment.
         "Wealth creation in the E&P industry is based on a series of investment
decisions,"  said  Dick  Cheney,   chairman  and  chief  executive   officer  of
Halliburton,  "each of which  calls for a unique set of tools,  information  and
professional  experience.  Many of the  pieces  of  these  solutions  have  been
available  for some time.  This  venture  will use the  Internet  to provide the
backbone  for  bringing  them  together  in  real  time to  increase  investment
         The new venture will support a collaborative  approach to E&P decisions
through Knowledge Service Providers (KSPs).  KSPs will provide an integrated set
of software applications, data integration and collaboration capabilities shared
among  communities of practice formed around the key decision points in the life
of an oil field  assets.  Through  KSPs,  it will be  possible  to extend  these
communities  dynamically  beyond  corporate  boundaries  to include  partners as
needed.  The key enabling  technologies are a reliable,  secure,  high-bandwidth
communications  infrastructure  coupled to scaleable,  high performance software
and computing facilities.
         "When  fully  operational,  KSPs will  allow  teams of energy  industry
scientists and engineers to work together more effectively by collaborating  and
exchanging information  interactively over a secure network," said Dr. J. Robert
Beyster, chairman and chief executive officer of SAIC.

"This new venture will pioneer the transformation of the E&P industry's operational processes. No longer will professionals have to come together geographically in order to collaborate. The day of virtual `infostructures' has arrived," said Robert P. Peebler, president and chief executive officer of Landmark Graphics Corporation, a subsidiary of Halliburton. "Our energy customers need a system that provides value and reduces costs. We believe our venture with SAIC will bring those attributes to the marketplace," Peebler added. Venture leverages existing network The venture will be headquartered in Houston, Texas. SAIC's Advanced Network eXchange(TM) (ANX(R)) will provide the platform for communications services. "This is consistent with our strategy of expanding the ANX(R) network into other markets beyond the automotive industry. With technical applications being at the heart of the E&P value chain, E&P customers need the high performance, reliable and secure connectivity that the ANX(R) network provides," said Dr. John E. Glancy, head of SAIC's e-commerce business. Lane Sloan, head of SAIC's Energy Sector noted, "Providing real time data integration capabilities is an ultimate objective which should provide high value to E&P customers. Landmark's expertise in E&P software applications and project data management and SAIC's strength in applications, interpretation and data warehousing are being brought together to enable the high level integration of multiple data sources covering both technical and business data." The concept of a workflow-centric portal is the foundation for transforming the E&P operational processes. KSPs will provide a layered set of capabilities ranging from free Internet access of E&P information sources to technical application hosting, data integration services and collaboration facilities. Its open architecture enables a wide array of applications and services from a broad spectrum of providers. SAIC is the nation's largest employee-owned research and engineering company, providing information technology and systems integration products and services to government and commercial customers. SAIC scientists and engineers work to solve complex technical problems in telecommunications, national security, health care, transportation, energy, the environment, and financial services. For the fiscal year ending January 31, 2000, SAIC revenues were approximately $5.5 billion. SAIC and its subsidiaries, including Telcordia Technologies (formerly Bellcore), have more than 39,000 employees at offices in more than 150 cities worldwide.
