Halliburton Company announced today net income of $227 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2021.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - HOUSTON - July 20, 2021 - Halliburton Company (NYSE: HAL) announced today net income of $227 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2021. This compares to net income for the first quarter of 2021 of $170 million, or $0.19 per diluted share. Halliburton's total revenue for the second quarter of 2021 was $3.7 billion, compared to revenue of $3.5 billion in the first quarter of 2021. Operating income was $434 million in the second quarter of 2021 compared to operating income of $370 million in the first quarter of 2021.
“Our second quarter performance demonstrates that our strategy is working well and Halliburton’s strategic priorities are driving value in this transition year. Total company revenue increased 7% sequentially, as both North America and international markets continued to improve, and operating income grew 17% with solid margin performance in both divisions,” commented Jeff Miller, Chairman, President and CEO.
“Halliburton’s Completion and Production division margin reached three-year highs, while our Drilling and Evaluation division margin outperformed expectations, setting both divisions up for robust margin growth this year.
“Our solid free cash flow generation further demonstrates the effectiveness of our strategy to strengthen the cash flow profile of our business.
“The positive activity momentum we see in North America and international markets today, combined with our expectations for future customer demand, gives us conviction for an unfolding multi-year upcycle.
“Halliburton’s value proposition, unique exposure to both international and North America markets, and differentiated technologies across an integrated services portfolio solidify our sustainable competitive advantage, and deliver strong free cash flow and industry-leading returns,” concluded Miller.
Completion and Production revenue in the second quarter of 2021 was $2 billion, an increase of $178 million, or 10%, when compared to the first quarter of 2021, while operating income was $317 million, an increase of $65 million, or 26%. These results were driven by increased activity across multiple product service lines in North America land, higher cementing activity in the Eastern Hemisphere and Latin America, increased completion tools sales in the Middle East, the North Sea, and Latin America, as well as higher well intervention services in Saudi Arabia and Algeria. Partially offsetting these improvements was lower stimulation activity in Latin America.
Drilling and Evaluation revenue in the second quarter of 2021 was $1.7 billion, an increase of $78 million, or 5%, when compared to the first quarter of 2021, while operating income was $175 million, an increase of $4 million, or 2%. These results were due to improved drilling-related services and wireline activity across all regions, along with increased testing services in the Eastern Hemisphere. Partially offsetting these increases were reduced software sales globally.
North America revenue in the second quarter of 2021 was $1.6 billion, a 12% increase when compared to the first quarter of 2021. This increase was primarily driven by higher pressure pumping services, drilling-related services, and wireline activity in North America land, as well as higher well construction activity in the Gulf of Mexico. Partially offsetting these increases were reduced software sales across the region.
International revenue in the second quarter of 2021 was $2.1 billion, a 4% increase when compared to the first quarter of 2021. This improvement was primarily driven by higher well construction activity, completion tools sales, and well intervention services across all regions. Partially offsetting these increases were lower software sales across all regions and decreased stimulation activity in Latin America.
Latin America revenue in the second quarter of 2021 was $534 million, flat sequentially. Increased activity in multiple product service lines in Mexico, higher fluid services in Brazil, as well as additional completion tools sales in Guyana, were offset by reduced stimulation activity in Argentina, Mexico, and Brazil, lower software sales across the region, and decreased project management activity in Mexico and Ecuador.
Europe/Africa/CIS revenue in the second quarter of 2021 was $679 million, a 7% increase sequentially, resulting from increased activity across multiple product service lines in Russia, Norway, Algeria, and Ghana. These increases were partially offset by lower software sales across the region and lower activity in Nigeria.
Middle East/Asia revenue in the second quarter of 2021 was $925 million, a 5% increase sequentially, resulting from improved activity in multiple product service lines in Saudi Arabia, higher well intervention services across the region, increased drilling-related services in Oman, higher completion tools sales in Kuwait, higher well construction activity in Australia, and increased pipeline services in China. These improvements were partially offset by lower software sales across the region, lower project management activity in India, and lower activity in Bangladesh.
