Schlumberger (SLB), which provides products and services for fossil fuel exploration, is slumping after the company reported that it is experiencing contractual delays and higher than usual seasonal weakness in its Europe/ex-Soviet Union/Africa region. Furthermore, the company warned that it's encountering weaker than expected activity on land in the U.S. and western Canada.

A number of Schlumberger's competitors also declined, with Halliburton sliding 1.76% to $32.92, Baker Hughes (BHI) giving back 2.73% to $41.03, and Weatherford (WFT) losing 0.57% to $10.44.

06:33 EDTBHIBaker Hughes reports Q1 adjusted EPS 84c, consensus 78c
Reports Q1 revenue $5.73B, consensus $5.71B. Martin Craighead, Baker Hughes chairman and CEO stated, "This quarter we delivered an increase in profit margins and earnings. Our performance is the result of actions to optimize operational efficiency, along with increasing demand for several innovative new product offerings. The benefit of these actions can be seen in our North America operations this quarter. On an adjusted basis, this segment delivered 200 basis points of margin improvement, despite a drop in well count caused by poor weather in the Rockies and northeast U.S. Outside of North America, our operations experienced the typical seasonal decline in product sales to start the year, along with severe weather conditions in the North Sea and Russia, leading to a 5% sequential drop in revenue for our international business. However, resumption of our activity in Iraq, along with increased demand for high technology services in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia Pacific, led to a 6% sequential increase in international adjusted operating profit."
