Halliburton Returns to Profit

Oilfield services major Halliburton has bounced back in black in the third quarter, ended September 30, 2016, as it saw increased utilization in North America, and improved cost and working capital management.

For the third quarter 2016, Halliburton reported operating income of $128 million, and cash flow from operating activities in excess of $1.0 billion.

The company booked quarterly profit of $6 million ($0.01 per share), compared with net loss of $54 million, ($0,06 per share) in the year-ago quarter. Year-to-date loss amounted to $6.53 per share against loss of 75 cents per share for the first nine months in 2015. Apart from slowdown in the oil services market, the negative result was mostly due to a $3.5-million termination fee following a failed merger agreement with Baker Hughes.

“I am pleased with our third quarter results given the devastation our industry has faced over the last two years. These results reflect the hard work and determination of our organization. While the recent cycle has provided its fair share of challenges, we out-executed even against the very high expectations we place on our organization,” said Dave Lesar, chairman and CEO.

Second-quarter revenue dropped to $3.83 billion from $5.58 billion same time last year. Sequentially, revenue was relatively flat. Revenue in the first nine months of 2016 was $6.7 billion lower from the corresponding period in 2015 at 11.86 billion.

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.
