16:19 EDTSLBSchlumberger says global economic outlook continues to be mixed
The company said, "the overall global economic outlook continues to be mixed as the US recovery from the effects of the unusually harsh winter coupled with a weaker forecast in Brazil, anemic growth in the Eurozone, and stabilizing GDP in China produce a slightly more cautious short-term GDP growth outlook. The fundamentals for a slow and steady recovery, however, remain intact. On the other hand, the gap between oil supply and demand is tightening on stronger demand and lower non-OPEC supply leading to narrower spare capacity and consequent support for oil prices that modulate customer spend. Natural gas markets on the other hand appear comfortably supplied with little upward pressure on prices. We believe that this outlook will be slow to change and that the scenario for growth that we unveiled at our investor conference in New York last month is highly realistic. The opportunities that new technologies offer in response to customer challenges coupled with greater integration will lead to clearly differentiated financial growth that can only be augmented by the gains that increased reliability and efficiency will provide. In this environment, Schlumberger will continue to outperform.
