North America C&P operating income increased $85 million, or 20%, sequentially, primarily due to lower guar costs and increased demand for production enhancement services in the United States land market. Latin America C&P operating income improved by $20 million, or 71%, compared to the first quarter of 2013, due to increased demand for cementing services in Brazil and Mexico, and increased stimulation activity in Argentina. Europe/Africa/CIS C&P operating income increased $10 million, or 16%, sequentially, driven by higher cementing activity in Russia and Mozambique and increased demand for production enhancement services and completion tools sales in Norway.
