Halliburton Announces Third Quarter 2018 Results

  • Income from continuing operations of $0.50 per diluted share

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Halliburton Company (NYSE:HAL) announced today income from continuing operations of $435 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2018. This compares to income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2018 of $511 million, or $0.58 per diluted share. Operating income was $716 million during the third quarter of 2018, compared to operating income of $789 million in the second quarter of 2018.

“I am pleased with our overall financial results for the third quarter. Our team optimized our performance in North America in the face of short-term challenges, and the recovery of our international operations continued,” commented Jeff Miller, President and CEO.

“Total company revenue of $6.2 billion was essentially flat quarter over quarter, while operating income was $716 million, a 9% decrease compared to the second quarter of 2018, largely due to the softening North America market for completion services.

“In North America, a combination of offtake capacity constraints and our customers’ budget exhaustion led to less demand than expected for completion services. I believe that these are temporary issues, and that the catalysts for improving demand for services are clearly visible: supportive commodity pricing, expanding offtake capacity, building well inventory, and reloaded customer budgets.

“Our international business continues to show signs of a steady recovery, with revenue increasing 5% sequentially, and every international region growing this quarter.

“In both of our divisions, we continue to invest in technologies and capabilities that we believe will drive growth, create meaningful differentiation, and deliver industry-leading returns. As a result, we are able to provide cutting edge technology that sets new standards for service quality and performance, and makes better wells for our customers.

“The outlook for global commodity supply and demand dynamics is constructive. I am confident that Halliburton has the right strategy, technology, and services to deliver industry-leading returns. We remain the leader in North America, which we believe is poised for a better 2019, and Halliburton is better positioned than it has ever been for the international recovery,” concluded Miller.

Operating Segments

Completion and Production

Completion and Production revenue in the third quarter of 2018 was $4.2 billion, essentially flat when compared to the second quarter of 2018, while operating income was $613 million, a decrease of $56 million, or 8%. Lower pricing and higher maintenance expense in stimulation services in the United States land sector negatively impacted results. That was partially offset by increased completion tool sales and well intervention services in the Eastern Hemisphere and higher stimulation activity in Mexico.

Drilling and Evaluation

Drilling and Evaluation revenue in the third quarter of 2018 was $2.0 billion, essentially flat when compared to the second quarter of 2018, while operating income was $181 million, a decrease of $10 million, or 5%. Declines in drilling fluids activity in North America were partially offset by increased drilling-related services in Latin America.

Corporate and Other Events

During the third quarter of 2018, Halliburton repurchased $200 million of common stock. Halliburton also repaid $400 million of debt that matured in the third quarter.

Geographic Regions

North America

North America revenue in the third quarter of 2018 was $3.7 billion, a 2% decrease sequentially. This decrease was primarily driven by lower pricing for stimulation services in the United States land sector and reduced drilling fluids activity in North America, partially offset by increased activity in the production chemicals and artificial lift product service lines in the United States land sector.

International

International revenue in the third quarter of 2018 was $2.4 billion, a 5% increase sequentially, resulting primarily from increased completion tool sales and well intervention services in the Eastern Hemisphere and higher drilling-related services in Latin America, partially offset by pricing pressure for stimulation services in the Middle East.

Latin America revenue in the third quarter of 2018 was $522 million, a 9% increase sequentially, resulting primarily from increased activity for stimulation services in Mexico and drilling-related services throughout the region, particularly in Argentina, Brazil and Ecuador. These increases were partially offset by decreased software sales in Mexico.

Europe/Africa/CIS revenue in the third quarter of 2018 was $757 million, a 4% increase sequentially, primarily driven by higher pipeline services across the region, coupled with increased completion tool sales in the North Sea.

Middle East/Asia revenue in the third quarter of 2018 was $1.2 billion, a 4% increase sequentially, largely resulting from increased completion tool sales and well intervention services throughout the region, partially offset by pricing pressure for stimulation services in the Middle East.

Selective Technology & Highlights

  • Halliburton released the iCruise™ Intelligent Rotary Steerable System (RSS), a breakthrough technology that delivers faster drilling, more accurate steering, and longer laterals. The iCruise System provides the highest mechanical specifications available in the market today with 400 RPM and up to 18 degrees/100 feet dogleg capabilities to drill fast and with greater accuracy.
  • Halliburton unveiled Prodigi™ AB Service, a first-of-its-kind offering that introduces automation to hydraulic fracturing to achieve a lower cost per BOE. By automating the breakdown process of a fracturing treatment, Prodigi AB Service helps deliver better well performance. It also helps improve overall efficiency, maximize the performance of perforation clusters, and mitigate the risk of screen-out.
  • Halliburton announced the acquisition of GOHFER® Fracture Modeling Software, the leading fracture simulation software in the business. GOHFER Software is used globally for conventional and unconventional well completion design, analysis and optimization.
  • Halliburton released the Xaminer® Magnetic Resonance (XMR™) Service, the industry’s only high pressure rated (35,000 psi) downhole sensor that provides comprehensive nuclear magnetic resonance measurements to improve reservoir insight. The XMR Service delivers detailed formation data, including 2D and 3D fluid characterization, carbonate pore size classification, unconventional analysis, and permeability.
  • Halliburton introduced MicroScout® Plus Service, designed to take hydraulic fracturing and microfracture stimulation to the next level by reaching and effectively stimulating secondary microfractures too small to be propped using conventional frac sand. The enhanced sand suspension characteristics offered by the MicroScout Plus Service offer deeper penetration into the formation and extended conductive complexity, aimed at increasing the productivity of stimulated reservoir volume over the long term.
  • Halliburton announced that its XtremeGrip™ liner hangers have been installed to a record depth of 30,924 feet in the Gulf of Mexico Hess-operated Stampede deepwater development. Halliburton has installed a total of 37 XtremeGrip expandable liner hangers across seven wells to date, with no liner-top leaks or remedial work required.
