HOUSTON - October 25,222 - Halliburton Company (NYSE: HAL) announced today net income of $544 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2022. This compares to net income for the second quarter of 2022 of $109 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, and the adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2022, excluding impairments and other charges, of $442 million, or $0.49 per diluted share. Halliburton's total revenue for the third quarter of 2022 was $5.4 billion compared to total revenue of $5.1 billion in the second quarter of 2022. Reported operating income was $846 million in the third quarter of 2022 compared to reported operating income of $374 million and adjusted operating income of $718 million in the second quarter of 2022.

“Halliburton's third quarter results demonstrate the strength of our strategy in action. Total company revenue grew 6% sequentially, as activity and pricing increased simultaneously in North America and International markets. Operating income grew 18% compared to adjusted operating income from the second quarter with strong margin performance in both divisions,” commented Jeff Miller, Chairman, President and CEO.

“In all markets, Halliburton's strong financial results demonstrate the execution of our strategic priorities. I believe structural demand for more oil and gas supply will provide strong tailwinds for our business, and Halliburton is well-positioned to deliver improved profitability and increased returns for shareholders.

“Our third quarter international performance demonstrates the earnings power of our strategy to deliver profitable international growth through improved pricing, selective contract wins, and the competitiveness of our technology offerings. Our year over year growth and margin expansion demonstrated by both divisions this quarter give me confidence in the earnings power of our international business.

“In North America, I see continued revenue growth -- the inbounds for calendar slots are stronger than I have ever seen at this point in the year. Our solid performance in the third quarter was the result of our strategy to maximize value and cash flow in this extremely tight market.

“Looking forward, we see activity increasing around the world -- from the smallest to the largest countries and producers. We intend to continue to execute on our strategic priorities and drive free cash flow and returns for our shareholders. I believe these strategies equip Halliburton to outperform under any market condition, but especially to maximize returns through this upcycle.” concluded Miller.

Operating Segments

Completion and Production

Completion and Production revenue in the third quarter of 2022 was $3.1 billion, an increase of $225 million, or 8%, when compared to the second quarter of 2022, while operating income was $583 million, an increase of $84 million, or 17%. These results were driven by increased pressure pumping services primarily in North America land, and increased completion tool sales in Middle East/Asia.

Drilling and Evaluation

Drilling and Evaluation revenue in the third quarter of 2022 was $2.2 billion, an increase of $58 million, or 3%, when compared to the second quarter of 2022, while operating income was $325 million, an increase of $39 million, or 14%. These results were due to improved drilling-related services in the Western Hemisphere and Middle East/Asia and increased project management activity and wireline services internationally. These improvements were partially offset by decreased drilling services in Norway, and decreased wireline services in the Gulf of Mexico.

Both divisional results were negatively impacted by the wind down and sale of our Russian operations.

Geographic Regions

North America

North America revenue in the third quarter of 2022 was $2.6 billion, a 9% increase when compared to the second quarter of 2022. This increase was primarily driven by increased pressure pumping services and drilling-related services in North America land. These increases were partially offset by decreased activity across multiple product service lines in the Gulf of Mexico.


International revenue in the third quarter of 2022 was $2.7 billion, a 3% increase when compared to the second quarter of 2022.

Latin America revenue in the third quarter of 2022 was $841 million, an 11% increase sequentially, due to increased well construction services and project management activity in Mexico and higher fluids and project management activity in Suriname. Partially offsetting these increases was lower project management activity in Colombia.

Europe/Africa revenue in the third quarter of 2022 was $639 million, an 11% decrease sequentially. Almost all of this reduction was related to exiting our Russia business along with decreased activity in the North Sea. These decreases were partially offset by increased well intervention services across the region.

Middle East/Asia revenue in the third quarter of 2022 was $1.2 billion, a 6% increase sequentially, primarily resulting from increased activity in Saudi Arabia, higher completion tool sales in Qatar, and increased drilling services in Indonesia and Malaysia. Partially offsetting these increases was lower activity in Vietnam.

Other Financial Items

During the third quarter of 2022, Halliburton redeemed the entire $600 million outstanding principal amount of its 3.50% senior notes due 2023 using cash on hand.

During the third quarter of 2022, Halliburton completed the sale of its Russia operations to its former Russia-based management team, which now owns and operates Halliburton's former Russian business under the name BurService LLC, independent from Halliburton. As a result, Halliburton no longer conducts operations in Russia.
