Published on

Halliburton (NYSE:HAL) announced today that income from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2014 was $1.0 billion, or $1.19 per diluted share, excluding Macondo-related items. This compares to income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2014 of $776 million, or $0.91 per diluted share. Reported income from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2014 was $1.1 billion, or $1.33 per diluted share.

Halliburton’s total revenue in the third quarter of 2014 was a record $8.7 billion, an 8% improvement compared to $8.1 billion in the second quarter of 2014, and a 16% improvement compared to $7.5 billion in the third quarter of 2013. Adjusted operating income was $1.4 billion in the third quarter of 2014, a 21% improvement compared to operating income of $1.2 billion in the second quarter of 2014 and a 24% improvement compared to adjusted operating income of $1.2 billion in the third quarter of 2013. Reported operating income was $1.6 billion in the third quarter of 2014 and $1.1 billion in the third quarter of 2013.

During the third quarter of 2014, Halliburton reduced its existing loss contingency for the Macondo well incident by $100 million and recorded $95 million for an expected insurance recovery related to the settlement, for a total $195 million positive adjustment to operating income.

“I am pleased with Halliburton’s third quarter results. Once again, we delivered industry-leading revenue and operating income growth, both sequentially and year over year, compared to our primary peers,” commented Dave Lesar, chairman, president and chief executive officer.

“In North America, third quarter revenue increased 9% and operating income was up 15% compared to the second quarter of 2014, outperforming a 3% increase in the United States land rig count. Service intensity levels surged to unprecedented levels, as completion volumes per well were up more than 50% compared to the third quarter of last year, and we expect this level of activity to continue. More importantly, our exit rate margins for North America were in excess of 20%.

“In the Eastern Hemisphere, activity continues to steadily expand. Sequentially, Eastern Hemisphere revenue grew 4% and operating income grew 6%, leading our peer group. This growth was driven by activity improvements in Saudi Arabia, Oman, Angola and Continental Europe, as well as seasonal increases in Russia and the Caspian. Despite geopolitical headwinds in Russia and the Middle East, we continue to forecast full-year Eastern Hemisphere revenue expansion in the low double-digits.

“In Latin America, revenue increased 16% sequentially, while operating income more than doubled compared to the second quarter, primarily as a result of increased project management, consulting and software revenue in Mexico. We also experienced higher testing and directional drilling activity in Brazil, as well as increased workover and stimulation activity in Venezuela.

“Our strategy is working well and we intend to stay the course. Our leadership in North America positions us well to take advantage of this quickly evolving market, and we continue to realize significant revenue and margin expansion in our international business.

“We continue to focus on delivering higher shareholder returns. This is evidenced by our 20% dividend increase announced today, which means our quarterly dividend has doubled in the last two years. Also, we repurchased an additional $300 million in stock during the third quarter. These actions reflect our confidence in the strength of our long-term business outlook, our commitment to shareholder distributions, and our focus on delivering best-in-class returns,” concluded Lesar.

2014 Third Quarter Results

Completion and Production

Completion and Production (C&P) revenue in the third quarter of 2014 was $5.4 billion, an increase of $478 million, or 10%, from the second quarter of 2014. This increase was primarily driven by higher activity in North America and strong growth across the majority of our product lines in the Europe/Africa/CIS and Latin America regions.

C&P operating income in the third quarter of 2014 was $1.1 billion, an increase of $184 million, or 21%, from the second quarter of 2014. North America C&P operating income improved by $135 million, or 21%, sequentially, mainly due to higher activity levels. Latin America C&P operating income increased $17 million, or 35%, compared to the second quarter of 2014, primarily due to higher stimulation activity and well intervention services in Mexico and Venezuela. Europe/Africa/CIS C&P operating income rose $30 million, or 31%, sequentially, mainly due to higher pressure pumping services and product sales in Angola, along with higher direct sales and seasonal pipeline and process activity in Europe. Middle East/Asia C&P operating income was relatively flat compared to the second quarter of 2014, primarily due to increased stimulation services in Saudi Arabia and higher activity for most product lines in Oman and Indonesia, which were partially offset by decreased pressure pumping services in Australia and Malaysia.

Drilling and Evaluation

Drilling and Evaluation (D&E) revenue in the third quarter of 2014 was $3.3 billion, an increase of $172 million, or 6%, from the second quarter of 2014. This increase was primarily driven by strong growth across the majority of our product lines in Latin America and increased consulting and fluid services in the Eastern Hemisphere.

D&E operating income in the third quarter of 2014 was $451 million, an increase of $37 million, or 9%, from the second quarter of 2014. North America D&E operating income decreased $19 million, or 12%, sequentially, due to reduced Gulf of Mexico activity. Latin America D&E operating income increased $60 million, or 462%, from the second quarter of 2014, primarily due to higher software sales and increased consulting services in Mexico. Europe/Africa/CIS D&E operating income was flat, sequentially, due to increased drilling activity in Azerbaijan, higher fluid activity in Angola, and improved activity in Russia, which were offset by decreased drilling services in Angola and lower fluid activity in Norway. Middle East/Asia D&E operating income decreased $4 million, or 3%, sequentially, mainly due to decreased drilling activity across the majority of the region, which was partially offset by increased logging activity in Saudi Arabia and Iraq, and increased direct sales in China.

Corporate and Other

During the third quarter of 2014, Halliburton repurchased approximately 4.4 million shares of common stock at a total cost of $300 million. Since the inception of the stock repurchase program in February 2006, Halliburton has purchased 201 million shares at a total cost of approximately $8.4 billion. Approximately $5.7 billion of repurchases remain authorized under the program.

During the third quarter, Halliburton’s effective tax rate benefited from an adjustment to reflect the recoverability of a net operating loss carry-forward in Brazil.

As previously announced, in September of 2014, Halliburton reached an agreement to settle a substantial portion of the plaintiffs’ claims asserted against the company as a result of the Macondo well incident. In the days following the settlement agreement, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana ruled that Halliburton was negligent in its conduct related to the Macondo well incident with a fault allocation of 3%. Further, the court did not find that Halliburton’s conduct constituted gross negligence.

Significant Recent Events and Achievements

  • Halliburton signed long-term contracts with Petroamazonas, Ecuador’s state-run oil company, to provide field development and asset management for the Igapo project, covering nine mature fields. The project is expected to run for 15 years, plus a potential five-year extension. Halliburton will provide a full range of drilling and completions services and technologies as part of an Integrated Asset Management project to enhance oil recovery from existing wells and discover new hydrocarbon reserves.
  • For the fifth consecutive year, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) identified Halliburton as a leader in corporate sustainability as the company exceeded industry averages in the Economic, Environmental and Social Performance categories. Halliburton’s continued commitment to advancing its global vision and goals for corporate responsibility and sustainability earned high rankings in several industry categories, and the company received industry best scores for Codes of Conduct, Compliance, Corruption and Bribery; Releases to the Environment; and Human Capital Development. Halliburton received a perfect score in the “Releases to the Environment” category.
  • Halliburton signed an agreement with the SPT Energy Group Inc. affiliate, Petrotech (Xinjiang) Engineering Co., Ltd., to establish a joint venture company focused on hydraulic fracturing and production enhancement services in Xinjiang, China. The new company, Xinjiang HDTD Oilfield Services Co. Ltd., will provide fracture stimulation services, including design and analysis, data acquisition, and pumping and chemical services in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. This is Halliburton’s first joint venture for hydraulic fracturing services in China.
  • Halliburton’s Baroid drilling fluids and waste management service line received the American Petroleum Institute (API) Specification Q2 Certification – an advanced industry certification standard for oil and natural gas service companies – for its work in the Gulf of Mexico. API Q2 is a new, risk-based quality management system approach that focuses on competency, service design, contingency planning, supply chain controls, preventive maintenance, inspection, service quality plans and management of change.
  • Halliburton’s Wireline and Perforating business line introduced the CoreVaultTM system, a unique solution that provides a more accurate volumetric picture of the amount of oil and gas trapped in unconventional reservoir rocks. For the first time, the system allows operators to contain and bring the reservoir fluids within rock samples to the surface, allowing for measurement of the volume of hydrocarbons-in-place. By preserving 100 percent of the fluids within the core sample, the CoreVault system allows for an improved understanding of potential production within the reservoir.

(a) Management believes that operating income adjusted for Macondo-related activity for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 and for the restructuring-related charges for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 is useful to investors to assess and understand operating performance, especially when comparing those results with previous and subsequent periods or forecasting performance for future periods, primarily because management views the excluded items to be outside of the company’s normal operating results. Management analyzes operating income without the impact of these items as an indicator of performance, to identify underlying trends in the business, and to establish operational goals. The adjustments remove the effects of the respective income and expenses.
(b) Adjusted operating income for each segment and region is calculated as: “Operating income” less “Items Included in Operating Income.”
