13:28 EDTHAL, BPHalliburton manager said he warned BP before 2010 oil spill, Bloomberg says
A Halliburton (HAL) manager testified that he warned BP (BP) that it was making a mistake hours before the explosion that caused the 2010 Gulf oil spill, according to Bloomberg. Nathaniel Chaisson, Halliburton’s cementing services coordinator, said he told BP that its plan to use six stabilizers on the well, instead of the recommended 21, increased the risk of a blowout, the news service stated. Chaisson was testifying in the trial which is being held to determine liability for the oil spill. Reference Link

07:02 EDTHALHalliburton says international business more resilient than domestic market
“Total company revenue of $7.1B for the first quarter was down 4% year-over-year, significantly outpacing a 19% global rig count decline, and represented industry-leading performance amidst a challenging commodity price environment. Our global customer base has responded by lowering activity levels and seeking price concessions, which has impacted our margins. As evident by the restructuring charges taken during the quarter, we are taking steps to help mitigate the ongoing impact. North America experienced an unprecedented decline in drilling activity during the first quarter, which drove pricing pressure and margin compression across all product lines. First quarter revenue declined 9% and operating income declined 54%, year-over-year, compared to a 21% reduction in the United States land rig count. Activity has dropped approximately 50% from the peak in late November and we expect to continue to see pricing pressure for our services until the rig count stabilizes. Our international business has been more resilient than the domestic market, with the international rig count down 9% from the peak last July. We continue to anticipate headwinds across all of our international regions this year, as operators reduce their budgets. Lower commodity prices are influencing our customers to re-evaluate asset economics and defer new projects,” said CEO Dave Lesar.
