Halliburton Takes $3.2 Billion Loss in Q2

Oilfield services major Halliburton has seen red in the second quarter, ended June 30, 2016, as it recognized $3.5-million termination fee following a failed merger agreement with Baker Hughes and saw its revenue decline by some 35 percent.

The company booked quarterly net loss of $3.2 billion ($3.73 per share), compared with net profit of $54 million, ($0,06 per share) in the year-ago quarter. Year-to-date loss amounted to $5.62 billion or $6.54 per share against loss of $589 million or 70 cents per share for the first six months in 2015.

“Our second quarter results showed resilience in the face of another challenging quarter marked by lower activity levels and continued pricing pressure around the globe,” said Dave Lesar, chairman and CEO.

The aggregate impact of the company’s second-quarter items was $3.1 billion, after-tax, or $3.59 per diluted share, including the above mentioned $3.5-billion termination fee.

Second-quarter revenue dropped to $3.83 billion versus $5.91 billion same time last year, and also declined quarter-over-quarter from $4.2 billion. First-half-2016 revenue decreased some 38 percent at $8 billion from approximately $13 billion in the corresponding period in 2015.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
