Halliburton Announces Second Quarter 2018 Results

Share:
  • Income from continuing operations of $0.58 per diluted share

Halliburton Company (NYSE:HAL) announced today income from continuing
operations of $511 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, for the second
quarter of 2018. This compares to reported income from continuing
operations for the first quarter of 2018 of $46 million, or $0.05 per
diluted share, and adjusted income from continuing operations for the
first quarter of 2018 of $358 million, or $0.41 per diluted share,
excluding impairments and other charges related to a write-down of all
of the Company's remaining investment in Venezuela. Operating income was
$789 million during the second quarter of 2018, compared to reported
operating income of $354 million and adjusted operating income of $619
million in the first quarter of 2018.

"We executed on our plan and delivered strong results. We achieved total
company revenue of $6.1 billion, representing a 7% increase, while
operating income was $789 million, a 27% increase over adjusted
operating income for the first quarter of 2018. Our overall strategy is
working well and we plan to stay the course," commented Jeff Miller,
President and CEO.

"Our Completion & Production division grew operating income by 34%,
primarily driven by the strength of U.S. land. Despite pricing levels
that have yet to fully rebound from the recent down cycle, we are
achieving outstanding margins.

"North America had a strong performance this quarter. This is the
largest and fastest growing energy market in the world. On a
year-to-date basis, we have grown revenues 47% year over year, while the
U.S. land rig count has increased 16%. U.S. land achieved margins that
are closing in on what we achieved during the previous peak in 2014.

"Halliburton is better positioned for the international recovery than it
has ever been and we are ready to make the most of it. We have
competitive market share in all of the major markets and have
consistently executed to manage the changing dynamics.

"Halliburton is resilient, adaptable and creative and we outperform by
keeping our core competencies strong and delivering superior service
quality. Our value proposition resonates with our customers and we will
continue to maximize their asset value while providing industry leading
returns for our shareholders," concluded Miller.

Operating Segments

Completion and Production

Completion and Production revenue in the second quarter of 2018 was $4.2
billion, an increase of $357 million, or 9%, from the first quarter of
2018, while operating income was $669 million, an increase of $169
million, or 34%. Improvements were led by increased pressure pumping and
artificial lift activity in the United States land sector. Additionally,
results improved due to higher pressure pumping services in
Europe/Africa/CIS and higher completion tool sales in the Middle East,
partially offset by reduced completion tool sales in Europe/Africa/CIS
and pressure pumping services in the Middle East.

Drilling and Evaluation

Drilling and Evaluation revenue in the second quarter of 2018 was $2.0
billion, an increase of $50 million, or 3%, from the first quarter of
2018, while operating income was $191 million, an increase of $3
million, or 2%. These improvements were primarily due to increased
drilling activity in the United States land sector, increased drilling
services and project management activity in the Middle East and India,
and increased software sales in Mexico. These improvements were
partially offset by reduced drilling fluid activity in the Gulf of
Mexico.

Geographic Regions

North America

North America revenue in the second quarter of 2018 was $3.8 billion, a
9% increase sequentially. This improvement was driven by increased
activity throughout the United States land sector within the majority of
Halliburton's product service lines, primarily pressure pumping, as well
as higher drilling and artificial lift activity. Partially offsetting
these increases were lower pressure pumping activity in Canada and
reduced drilling fluid activity in the Gulf of Mexico.

International

International revenue in the second quarter of 2018 was $2.3 billion, a
4% increase sequentially, resulting primarily from increased drilling
services and project management activity in the Middle East, as well as
higher project management activity and software sales in Mexico. These
increases were partially offset by lower completion tool sales in
Europe/Africa/CIS, particularly in the North Sea and Angola.

Latin America revenue in the second quarter of 2018 was $479 million, a
5% increase sequentially, resulting primarily from increases in software
sales and project management activity in Mexico, as well as stimulation
activity in Argentina.

Europe/Africa/CIS revenue in the second quarter of 2018 was $726
million, slightly improved sequentially. Higher pressure pumping and
pipeline services throughout the region were offset by lower completion
tool sales, primarily in the North Sea and Angola, along with reduced
drilling activity in Azerbaijan.

Middle East/Asia revenue in the second quarter of 2018 was $1.1 billion,
a 6% increase sequentially, largely resulting from increased drilling
services, project management activity, and completion tool sales in the
Middle East, as well as higher project management activity in India.

Selective Technology & Highlights

  • Halliburton acquired Athlon Solutions, a manufacturer of chemicals for
    the upstream oil & gas industry and a leading provider of specialty
    water and process treatment chemicals, customized engineering
    solutions, and services. Athlon's chemicals manufacturing and water
    and process treatment business add key complementary capabilities to
    accelerate growth of Halliburton's Multi-Chem product service line and
    enhances the Company's ability to deliver superior customer service
    and custom chemistry to more customers.
  • Halliburton United Arab Emirates (UAE) facilities received the
    American Petroleum Institute (API) Specification Q2, ISO 9001 and
    OHSAS 18001 certifications. Halliburton facilities are the first in
    the oil services industry to receive the three registrations in the
    UAE, and the first among the company's facilities in the Middle East
    to achieve this standard of excellence.
  • Saudi Aramco awarded Halliburton an unconventional gas stimulation
    services contract to further improve the economics of Saudi Aramco's
    Unconventional Resources program. Halliburton will utilize an
    integrated approach to support Saudi Aramco's increased recovery and
    production targets by providing project management, hydraulic
    fracturing, coiled tubing, wireline and perforating, completion tools
    and testing services.
  • Halliburton launched several products within various product service
    lines in our Drilling and Evaluation division during the second
    quarter of 2018. New launches within this division included EarthStar™
    ultra-deep resistivity service, a logging-while-drilling technology,
    and Stega™ efficient layout design, an advanced drill bit that
    optimizes the placement of back-up cutters. Additionally, e-cd™ Plus
    system is a new technology that automates and enhances continuous
    circulation connections during drilling and tipping operations.
  • Halliburton introduced InnerVue™ Non-Intrusive Pipeline and Wellbore
    Diagnostics, a technology that quickly and accurately detects
    blockages or leaks and profiles deposits in pipelines and wellbores.
    InnerVue diagnostics interprets pressure waves reflecting from
    internal features of the pipeline or wellbore and extrapolates the
    pressure reflections into deposit profiles or blockage and leak
    locations.
  • Landmark launched DecisionSpace® Production Engineering and
    DecisionSpace® Production Insights. This software helps operators
    better utilize data to reduce costs and unlock production potential.
  • Halliburton acquired the technology behind the BaraOmni™ hybrid
    separation system, a next-level separation technology that removes
    ultrafine low-gravity solids (LGS) effectively, resulting in better
    performing, longer-lasting fluid systems with significantly reduced
    costs for operators.

useful to investors to assess and understand operating performance,
especially when comparing those results with previous and subsequent
periods or forecasting performance for future periods, primarily
because management views the excluded items to be outside of the
company's normal operating results. Management analyzes operating
income without the impact of these items as an indicator of
performance, to identify underlying trends in the business, and to
establish operational goals. The adjustments remove the effect of
these items. Adjusted operating income is calculated as: "As
