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.

08:29 EDTHAL, SLBU.S. may be at, or near, peak oil output, WSJ says
New data and forecasts suggest lower crude prices are finally prompting U.S. energy companies to cut back their crude output, according to The Wall Street Journal, citing reports from OPEC, the DOE and North Dakota. Publicly traded oil majors include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Exxon Mobil (XOM), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). Publicly traded drillers and oil services companies include Baker Hughes (BHI), Diamond Offshore (DO), Halliburton (HAL), Nabors Industries (NBR), Noble Corp. (NE), Rowan Companies (RDC), Schlumberger (SLB), Transocean (RIG) and Weatherford (WFT). Reference Link
06:33 EDTHALSources: Halliburton hires BofA, Deutsche Bank to sell assets, Reuters reports
According to sources, Reuters reports that Bank of America (BAC) and Deutsche Bank (DB) have been hired by Halliburton (HAL) to sell two assets that could be valued at up to $5B. Bank of America will work to sell some of Halliburton's Sperry Drilling business, including logging-while-drigging, directional drilling and measuring-while-drilling, while Deutsche Bank is mandated to sell Halliburton's drill bits businesses. Halliburton is seeking to divest some assets to ease regulators' antitrust concerns in its $35B merger deal with Baker Hughes (BHI). Reference Link
05:17 EDTSLBSchlumberger sees supply tightening further in second half
Schlumberger Chairman and CEO Paal Kibsgaard commented, Looking at the macro environment, the global economy continues its steady recovery, and oil demand is still expected to increase by 1 million bbl/d in 2015. However, the significant reductions in E&P spend are starting to impact supply in both North America and internationally, and supply is expected to tighten further in the second half of the year. The largest drop in E&P investment is occurring in North America, where 2015 spend is expected to be down by more than 30%. We believe that a recovery in US land drilling activity will be pushed out in time, as the inventory of uncompleted wells builds and as the re-fracturing market expands. We also anticipate that a recovery in activity will fall well short of reaching previous levels, hence extending the period of pricing weakness. Internationally, we expect 2015 E&P spending to fall around 15%, which will create challenges in terms of both activity and pricing levels, but these challenges will be considerably less than the headwinds we are facing in North America. By geography, we anticipate growth in our key markets in the Middle East as the core OPEC producers continue to pursue market share as the non-OPEC part of the international supply base continues to weaken. Elsewhere, we expect to see overall activity reductions in Latin America, Europe, Sub-Saharan Africa, and in Asia, while in Russia, we believe that conventional land activity in Western Siberia will continue to be resilient, but that the revenue contribution from the region will remain subdued until the currency effects have normalized."
