13:32 EDTWFT, BHI, SLB, DO, NBR, RDC, HAL, PDE, RIGOil 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.

09:53 EDTSLBSchlumberger says Q3 could 'potentially represent bottom' for revenue
Schlumberger management said on the company's Q2 earnings call that in North America in Q3 they expect a slight increase in activity on land, but they see this being offset by weakening offshore activity and further pricing pressure, both on land and offshore. Internationally, they see no "major change" in Q3 and they thinks the "overall weak activity" is going to continue, adding that they expect sustained pricing pressure. At this stage, the company's cost structure and field capacity is "really tailored" to its Q2 activity level, but, for now, they have decided to preserve the current structure for Q3 in order to be ready for increased activity going forward, the company added. Management said, "We are prepared to live with the temporary margin impact that carrying these slightly elevated levels of resources is going to have. It's not going to be a huge impact on margins but it's going to be a little bit more than what we could have managed if we were to cut even deeper."

16:21 EDTSLBSchlumberger says E&P investment in N. America to fall by more than 35% in 2015
The company said, "E&P investment in North America is now expected to fall by more than 35% in 2015 driven by lower land activity and increased pricing pressure. We believe that the North American rig count may now be touching the bottom, and that a slow increase in both land drilling and completion activity could occur in the second half of the year. In the international market, E&P spending is now expected to drop more than 15%. We do not expect any upward adjustment to existing 2015 budgets but see a continuation of first-half trends with low exploration activity, tight management of development-related spend, and continued pricing pressure. In this challenging market, we remain focused on the things we can control, which include our cost and resource base, the effective deployment of our technology and expertise, and the quality and integrity of the products and services we provide to our customers. The success of this approach can be seen in our strong international margins despite the drop in revenue and in our ability to maximize our performance in North America. We remain very confident in our capacity to continue to weather the current downturn better than our surroundings, and better than in previous downturns. Our global strength, our technology differentiation, and our accelerated corporate transformation are creating a great platform for us to increase revenue market share, deliver lower reductions in earnings per share than our peers, and continue to reduce working capital and capex intensity while generating higher levels of free cash flow.
