13:32 EDTSLB, RIG, RDC, BHI, PDE, NBR, WFT, HAL, DOOil services stocks fall after Schlumberger calls North America weak
A number of oil services stocks are falling after the leader in the sector, Schlumberger (SLB), stated on slides for the Howard Weil Conference that activity in North America has been below expectations in the first quarter. The company's customers have activated fewer rigs on the continent than they had previously indicated, Schlumberger explained. Schlumberger also stated that it was temporarily reducing its activity in Venezuela due to "collection issues." The company forecast that its earnings per share would grow by double digit percentage levels this year, in-line with its previous outlook, as long as North American land activity and prices meet its previous forecast and issues resolve in Venezuela. Meanwhile, the company forecast that demand for oil would increase just 1% in 2013 compared to 2012. The increase will be driven by developing markets, with China generating 50% of the growth, Schlumberger stated. In mid-afternoon trading, Schlumberger fell 3% to $77, Baker Hughes (BHI) gave back 2% to $47, Weatherford (WFT) lost 1.5% to $12, and Halliburton (HAL) lost 1.6% to $41.23.

09:02 EDTHALHalliburton reaches $1.1B settlement on claims related to Macondo
Halliburton (HAL) announced that it has reached an agreement to settle a substantial majority of the plaintiffsí class claims asserted against the company as a result of the April 20, 2010 Macondo well incident in the Gulf of Mexico. The approximately $1.1B settlement, which includes legal fees, is subject to approval by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, and will be paid into a trust until all appeals have been resolved in three installments over the next two years. The companyís previously accrued loss contingency provision relating to the multi-district litigation proceedings is currently $1.3B. The agreement includes the following: Claims against Halliburton that BP (BP) assigned to the settlement class in BPís April 2012 settlement, Punitive damages claims against Halliburton by a class of plaintiffs who allege damages to property or associated with the commercial fishing industry arising from the Deepwater Horizon Incident, and Affirmation that Halliburton has no liability for compensatory damages to the members of the settlement class in the BP April 2012 settlement. Payments will be held in the trust, pending the finalization of this settlement which is contingent on final Court approval, including any appeals of: The BP 2012 settlement with the settlement class, The District Courtís earlier determination that the contractual indemnity provided by BP to Halliburton is valid and enforceable, and The District Courtís earlier dismissal of economic damage claims against Halliburton. Additionally, the settlement is subject to an agreed-upon level of participation by the current claimants which, if not achieved, allows Halliburton to terminate the agreement.

16:18 EDTWFTWeatherford recommends rejection of 'Mini-Tender' offer by TRC Capital
Weatherford International has received notification of an unsolicited "mini-tender" offer by TRC Capital Corporation to purchase up to 5M shares, or approximately 0.65%, of the outstanding ordinary shares of Weatherford at $21.15 per share. TRC Capital's offer is approximately 4.3% below Weatherford's closing price of $22.10 on August 18, the day before the offer commenced. Weatherford does not endorse this unsolicited mini-tender offer and recommends that shareholders reject the offer. Weatherford recommends that shareholders who have not responded to TRC Capital reject the offer by taking no action because the offer is at a price below the current market price for Weatherford shares and is subject to numerous conditions, including any decrease in the market price of Weatherford's shares and the ability of TRC Capital to obtain financing on satisfactory terms. Weatherford further recommends that shareholders who have already tendered shares in TRC Capital's offer withdraw their shares by providing the written notice described in the offering documents prior to the time of expiration stated in the offer, which is on Thursday, September 18.
