Halliburton Announces Second Quarter Earnings From Continuing Operations Of $0.80 Per Diluted Share

Stocks in this article: HAL

“In Middle East/Asia, we recovered well from the seasonal weather experienced by Australia in the previous quarter and sales in China rebounded sharply from seasonally low levels in the first quarter. Compared to the second quarter of last year, operating income across the region was up 59%, highlighted by a 72% improvement in our Asia Pacific countries.

“Going forward, we intend to maintain our market leading position in North America, strengthen our international margins, and grow our market share in deepwater and in underserved international markets. The results for this quarter clearly demonstrate that our ongoing strategy is working. Additionally, we believe we are well-positioned to capture additional market share in the expanding international unconventional basins by leveraging our technology and expertise developed in North America,” concluded Lesar.

2012 Second Quarter Results

Completion and Production

Completion and Production (C&P) revenue in the second quarter of 2012 was $4.5 billion, an increase of $170 million, or 4%, from the first quarter of 2012. Increased demand in oil and liquids-rich basins in the United States land market and strong Eastern Hemisphere growth more than offset the effects of the seasonal Canadian spring break-up.

C&P operating income in the second quarter of 2012 was $914 million, a decrease of $122 million, or 12%, from the first quarter of 2012. North America C&P operating income decreased $180 million, or 21%, from the first quarter of 2012, primarily due to increased costs associated with guar gum and pricing pressure in production enhancement services. Latin America C&P operating income was relatively flat compared to the first quarter of 2012, as increased activity in production enhancement services in Mexico was offset by higher costs in Mexico and Argentina. Europe/Africa/CIS C&P operating income increased $38 million, or 67%, from the first quarter of 2012 driven by increased activity and improved cost controls in Angola, improved completion tools results in Norway, and increased demand for cementing services in Russia. Middle East/Asia C&P operating income increased $21 million, or 40%, compared to the first quarter of 2012. This increase was primarily due to increased activity levels in Australia and higher production enhancement activity and completion tools sales in Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
