All Areas and Product Groups grew sequentially. Growth in North America was led by high-technology services in deepwater Gulf of Mexico, where operational performance was extremely solid. Significant multiclient seismic sales were recorded and a second wide-azimuth seismic fleet was mobilized. North America land revenue grew in line with rig count while performance improved through asset deployment and crew efficiency. Pricing momentum in our Wireline and Drilling product lines continued though the trend slowed somewhat versus the prior quarter.
