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

Drilling and Evaluation

Drilling and Evaluation (D&E) revenue in the second quarter of 2012 was $2.8 billion, an increase of $196 million, or 8%, from the first quarter of 2012, driven by greater demand for fluids in the Gulf of Mexico and higher drilling activity levels internationally.

D&E operating income in the second quarter of 2012 was $393 million, an increase of $25 million, or 7%, from the first quarter of 2012. North America D&E operating income decreased $24 million, or 13%, from the first quarter of 2012 primarily due to the Canadian spring break-up and migration of activity from natural gas to oil and liquids-rich basins. Latin America D&E operating income increased $17 million, or 25%, from the first quarter of 2012, primarily due to improved activity and pricing in Venezuela and increased wireline and testing and subsea activity in Mexico. Europe/Africa/CIS D&E operating income increased $24 million, or 60%, from the first quarter of 2012 as a result of wireline direct sales in Poland, higher activity in all product service lines in Kazakhstan, and increased demand for drilling services in Russia and Norway. Middle East/Asia D&E operating income increased $8 million, or 11%, from the first quarter of 2012, as higher sales in China were partially offset by increased costs in Iraq.

Corporate and Other

During the second quarter of 2012, Halliburton invested an additional $29 million, pre-tax, in strategic projects aimed at strengthening Halliburton’s North America service delivery model and repositioning technology, supply chain, and manufacturing infrastructure to support projected international growth. Halliburton expects to continue funding this effort for the remainder of 2012.

Significant Recent Events and Achievements

  • Halliburton and Gazprom International announced they had signed a Strategic Cooperation Agreement for the development and implementation of new oil and natural gas technologies in global exploration and production projects. The agreement sets the framework for the ongoing exchange of information related to oil and natural gas technologies, for technical training to be provided to Gazprom International by Halliburton, and for the deployment of Halliburton technology on Gazprom International projects. The technologies will address areas including tight natural gas, deepwater, advanced software applications, and integrated workflows.
  • Halliburton was recognized by the 2012 Offshore Technology Conference's (OTC) Spotlight on New Technologies program for its EquiFlow® autonomous inflow control device (AICD). The EquiFlow® AICD addresses the problem of unwanted water or gas production and solves the inefficiency in current ICD designs. The OTC Committee chose the technology for the Spotlight award based on four criteria: innovation; proven full-scale application; broad interest and appeal for the industry; and significant benefit to the industry beyond existing technologies.
  • Halliburton reached a milestone in the realization of its Frac of the Future vision. In the second quarter, Halliburton rolled out the first production units of its new Q10™ pump to field operations where it joins our solar-powered SandCastle™ proppant storage units and our ROCC™ Remote Operation Command & Control Centers. The new Q10™ pump is the most versatile pump ever produced by Halliburton. It is designed to more efficiently meet the demands of horizontal shale, providing significantly enhanced performance and reliability while simultaneously reducing our footprint at the well site.
  • Halliburton has developed PermStim SM, a fluid to replace guar-based fracturing systems by providing a cleaner, more robust alternative that is designed to result in more cost-effective treatments and improved well performance. Conventional guar-based fluid systems have 10% or more insoluble residue that remains in the proppant pack and reduces the flow of hydrocarbons to the wellbore. The non-damaging characteristics of PermStim SM fluid is expected to help operators get better results from fracturing treatments. PermStim SM has been used successfully in over 40 wells in the Denver-Julesburg and Williston Basins at temperatures up to 300°F BHST.
  • Halliburton introduced the SperryDrill® XL/XLS and GeoForce® XL/XLS series motors to its fleet of positive displacement drilling motors. SperryDrill® and GeoForce® XL and XLS series motors offer novel downhole drilling motor technology for harsh drilling conditions and special applications such as air drilling, extended-reach drilling, and high-temperature drilling.
  • Halliburton announced an integrated suite of products and services to help operators develop reservoirs previously challenged by high equivalent circulating density (ECD) of the fluids used to drill and cement the well, which results from narrow margins between the pore pressure and the fracture gradient of the formation. Halliburton’s “Low ECD” solution helps increase operational efficiency while reducing formation damage and uses a range of technologies designed to minimize circulating and surge pressure. As part of this comprehensive solution, Halliburton has released the Low ECD Fluid Enhancement Package, VersaFlex® Low ECD System, and Commander™ 1000 Top-Drive Cementing Head.
  • Halliburton was awarded three Hart’s E&P Meritorious Engineering Achievement awards in 2012, as well as four Honorable Mentions. The Hart's Meritorious Award for Engineering Achievement honors the world's best new technologies and techniques for finding, drilling and producing oil and natural gas wells. The receipt of a meritorious engineering achievement award marks a company as a technology leader in the upstream oil and natural gas industry. Entries are judged by a panel of globally recognized industry experts on their innovation of concept or design; their ability to solve a real, practical oilfield problem; and their potential for improving profitability, safety, or efficiency. Awards were received for Halliburton’s CleanStream® service, Offshore Slop Unit, Tuned® Spacer V spacer fluid, RockStrong™ coring system, EquiFlow® autonomous inflow control device, Liner-Conveyed Gravel Pack System and Rigless E-Line Recompletion Solution.

Founded in 1919, Halliburton is one of the world’s largest providers of products and services to the energy industry. With over 70,000 employees in approximately 80 countries, the company serves the upstream oil and gas industry throughout the lifecycle of the reservoir – from locating hydrocarbons and managing geological data, to drilling and formation evaluation, well construction and completion, and optimizing production through the life of the field.

(a)   Management believes that operating income adjusted for the first quarter of 2012 Macondo-related charge and the second quarter of 2011 employee separation costs is useful to investors to assess and understand operating performance, especially when comparing those results with previous or subsequent periods or forecasting performance for future periods, primarily because management views these 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 ongoing operating performance, to identify underlying trends in the business, and to establish operational goals, including segment and region operational goals. The adjustments remove the effects of these expenses.
(b) Adjusted operating income for each segment and region is calculated as: “Operating income” less “Items Included in Operating Income.”
