FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - HOUSTON - January 24, 2023 - Halliburton Company (NYSE: HAL) announced today net income of $656 million, or $0.72 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2022. This compares to net income for the third quarter of 2022 of $544 million, or $0.60 per diluted share. Halliburton's total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2022 was $5.6 billion compared to total revenue of $5.4 billion in the third quarter of 2022. Operating income was $976 million in the fourth quarter of 2022 compared to operating income of $846 million in the third quarter of 2022.
Total revenue for the full year of 2022 was $20.3 billion, an increase of $5.0 billion, or 33% from 2021. Operating income for 2022 was $2.7 billion, and adjusted operating income was $3.1 billion, excluding impairments and other charges, compared to operating income of $1.8 billion for 2021.
“Halliburton's execution in 2022 demonstrated the earnings power of our strategy, and I expect this earnings power to strengthen in 2023 and beyond. Both operating divisions delivered strong margins in the international and North America markets,” commented Jeff Miller, Chairman, President and CEO.
“I am pleased to announce that our Board has adopted a capital returns framework and an increase in our dividend to sixteen cents ($0.16) per share beginning this quarter. This capital returns framework, our dividend increase, and the share buy backs we made during the fourth quarter demonstrate Halliburton's confidence in our business, customers, employees, and value proposition.
“I am confident in Halliburton's strong outlook and ability to generate increased returns for shareholders. Halliburton's exceptional financial performance is a clear result of executing our strategic priorities - to maximize value in North America, deliver profitable international growth and drive capital efficiency,” concluded Miller.
Completion and Production revenue in the fourth quarter of 2022 was $3.2 billion, an increase of $46 million, or 1%, when compared to the third quarter of 2022, while operating income was $659 million, an increase of $76 million, or 13%. These results were driven by weather related lower stimulation activity offset by improved pricing, service efficiency and activity mix in North America land, as well as higher completion tool sales and cementing activity globally.
Drilling and Evaluation revenue in the fourth quarter of 2022 was $2.4 billion, an increase of $179 million, or 8%, when compared to the third quarter of 2022, while operating income was $387 million, an increase of $62 million, or 19%. These results were due to increased drilling-related services, testing services, and year-end software sales internationally and higher project management activity in Mexico.
North America revenue in the fourth quarter of 2022 was $2.6 billion, a 1% decrease when compared to the third quarter of 2022. This decrease was primarily driven by weather related lower stimulation activity and artificial lift activity in North America land. These decreases were partially offset by improved activity across multiple product service lines in the Gulf of Mexico.
International revenue in the fourth quarter of 2022 was $3.0 billion, a 9% increase when compared to the third quarter of 2022.
Latin America revenue in the fourth quarter of 2022 was $945 million, an increase of 12% sequentially, due to higher activity across multiple product service lines in Mexico, higher completion tool sales in the region, increased pressure pumping services in Argentina, and improved well construction services in Colombia. Partially offsetting these increases was lower fluids activity in Guyana.
Europe/Africa revenue in the fourth quarter of 2022 was $657 million, an increase of 3% sequentially, primarily driven by higher completion tool sales, testing services, and well intervention services across the region, along with increased drilling-related services in West Africa. These increases were partially offset by lower activity in Norway and decreased pipeline services across the region.
Middle East/Asia revenue in the fourth quarter of 2022 was $1.4 billion, a 10% increase sequentially, primarily resulting from higher drilling and evaluation services across the region, increased cementing activity in the Middle East, and higher completion tool sales in Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates. Partially offsetting these increases was lower completion tool sales in Qatar.
