Halliburton Announces First Quarter 2019 Results

  • Reported net income of $0.17 per diluted share
  • Adjusted net income of $0.23 per diluted share, excluding impairments and other charges

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Halliburton Company (NYSE:HAL) announced today net income of $152 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2019. This compares to net income for the first quarter of 2018 of $46 million, or $0.05 per diluted share. Adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2019, excluding impairments and other charges, was $201 million, or $0.23 per diluted share. This compares to adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2018, excluding impairments and other charges, of $358 million, or $0.41 per diluted share. Halliburton’s total revenue in the first quarter of 2019 was $5.7 billion, essentially flat year over year. Reported operating income was $365 million during the first quarter of 2019, a 3% increase compared to reported operating income of $354 million in the first quarter of 2018. Excluding impairments and other charges, adjusted operating income was $426 million for the first quarter of 2019 and $619 million for the first quarter of 2018.

“Our results for the first quarter played out as we expected and I’m pleased with how our organization executed both in North America and internationally. We continued to collaborate with our customers to engineer solutions that maximize their asset value,” commented Jeff Miller, Chairman, President and CEO.

“Total company revenue of $5.7 billion was essentially flat compared to the first quarter of 2018, and adjusted operating income was $426 million.

“As expected, the first quarter activity levels in North America were modestly higher compared to the first quarter of 2018, and we experienced pricing headwinds throughout the quarter. We believe the worst in the pricing deterioration is now behind us. For the next couple of quarters, I see demand for our services progressing modestly.

“International revenue increased 11% year over year, which was a great first step towards our expectation of high single-digit international growth for all of 2019. Broad-based recovery continues across all regions, and we expect this momentum to build going into 2020.

“Halliburton is well positioned to navigate the near-term and thrive in the long run. We will achieve that through responsible capital stewardship, prioritizing capital efficiency, investing in the technologies that deliver differentiation, and generating strong cash flow and returns,” concluded Miller.

Operating Segments

Completion and Production

Completion and Production revenue in the first quarter of 2019 was $3.7 billion, a decrease of $145 million, or 4%, when compared to the first quarter of 2018, while operating income was $368 million, a decrease of $132 million, or 26%. These decreases were primarily driven by lower pricing for stimulation services in U.S. land, partially offset by higher artificial lift and cementing activity in U.S. land, increased stimulation activity in Latin America, and higher completion tool sales in Middle East/Asia and Latin America.

Drilling and Evaluation

Drilling and Evaluation revenue in the first quarter of 2019 was $2.1 billion, an increase of $142 million, or 7%, when compared to the first quarter of 2018, with activity improvements across all geographic regions. These increases primarily related to higher logging and project management activity globally and improved fluids activity in Latin America. Operating income was $123 million, a decrease of $65 million, or 35%, resulting primarily from mobilization costs that we incurred on multiple drilling projects internationally, coupled with reduced project management activity and lower pricing in the Middle East.

Geographic Regions

North America

North America revenue in the first quarter of 2019 was $3.3 billion, a 7% decrease compared to the first quarter of 2018. This decrease was primarily driven by lower pricing for stimulation services in U.S. land, partially offset by higher artificial lift, cementing and stimulation services activity.

International

International revenue in the first quarter of 2019 was $2.5 billion, an 11% increase year over year, resulting primarily from increased stimulation and fluids activity in Latin America, coupled with higher completion tool sales in the Middle East/Asia and improved logging activity in Europe/Africa/CIS. These improvements were partially offset by reduced fluids activity in the Middle East.

Latin America revenue in the first quarter of 2019 was $587 million, a 28% increase year over year, resulting primarily from higher activity for the majority of Halliburton's product service lines in Mexico, higher stimulation activity in Argentina and improved fluids activity throughout the region. This was partially offset by reduced drilling and testing activity in Brazil.

Europe/Africa/CIS revenue in the first quarter of 2019 was $748 million, a 4% increase year over year, primarily driven by higher activity across multiple product service lines in Ghana and the United Kingdom. These results were partially offset by lower drilling related activity in Azerbaijan.

Middle East/Asia revenue in the first quarter of 2019 was $1.1 billion, a 7% increase year over year, largely resulting from higher completion tool sales across the region, coupled with increased project management activity in India and improved drilling activity in the Middle East. These improvements were partially offset by reduced fluids activity and lower pricing in the Middle East.

Selective Technology & Highlights

  • Halliburton announced it will build the first oilfield chemical manufacturing plant in Saudi Arabia. Upon the plant’s completion in 2020, Halliburton will begin local manufacturing of a broad slate of specialty chemicals for stimulation, production, midstream and downstream engineering treatment programs to help customers achieve production and reliability goals in applications from the reservoir to the refinery.
  • Halliburton signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Egyptian Ministry of Petroleum & Mineral Resources to support a specialized development program for Egypt’s middle management and young professional employees. The Memorandum is a collaborative agreement under which Halliburton will utilize its strength in human capital development to provide on-the-job training for Egyptians who show the potential to be future leaders in the oil and gas industry. Additionally, Halliburton will customize a development program for select participants to enhance their capabilities and assist Egypt in its role as a leading regional oil and gas hub.
  • Halliburton introduced a Motors Center of Excellence, a new approach to drilling motor development that combines specialized engineering and manufacturing capabilities to customize motor designs for specific basin challenges. By establishing a dedicated team of scientists in polymer chemistry, materials, bearing and power section design, Halliburton can accelerate research and development activities to deliver leading drilling motors to the industry.
  • Halliburton announced the execution of an integrated services contract with Royal Dutch Shell for post-salt development and pre-salt exploration in Brazil’s Campos and Santos Basins. Under the contract, which includes a three-year term with a two-year extension, Halliburton will provide drilling services to drive greater efficiency by integrating multiple product offerings and technologies. Halliburton has an established track record in Brazil’s pre-salt fields, which have some of the most complex wells ever drilled and require a broad scope of technologies and capabilities to achieve economical and operational success.
  • Dr. M. Katherine Banks and Ms. Patricia Hemingway Hall have been named to the Company’s board of directors. The appointments were effective February 13, 2019, and both will stand for election by shareholders at the annual meeting on May 15, 2019.
