09:15 EDTHALHalliburton: We do not see momentum slowing anytime soon
Halliburton should begin to see impact of new contract pricing as company moves into 2015. Experienced some disruptions in early Q3 due to sand deliveries and nearly missed jobs, but company said it has taken actions to "get ahead of this issue going forward." Says Eastern Hemisphere activity expanding at a steady rate, expects to deliver double digit revenue growth in 2014. Expects Q4 in Eastern Hemisphere to be strongest quarter of the year due to seasonality. Looking ahead to 2015, rate of growth in Eastern Hemisphere may moderate due geopolitical issues. Expects to outpace peers in revenue growth. Expects to be at full operational capacity in Mexico, and excited about energy reform in Mexico. Expects to operate under more profitable contract in Q1 for Brazil. Expects a "much stronger 2015" with potential in the coming years. In the long term, believes lower oil prices is not sustainable, with supply and demand to be back in balance in a relatively short amount of time. Comments taken from Q3 earnings conference call.
