Halliburton saw improved net income in the third quarter 2021 over the second quarter, announcing total revenue of $3.9 billion compared to $3.7 billion the previous quarter.
The Houston based company that was founded in Oklahoma said its net income for the quarter was $236 million or 26 cents a diluted share, better than $227 million and 26 cents a share in the second quarter. Adjusted net income for the third quarter was $248 million or 28 cents a share.
Reported operating income was $446 million in the third quarter of 2021 compared to reported operating income of $434 million in the second quarter of 2021. Excluding special items, adjusted operating income was $458 million in the third quarter of 2021.
“Our third quarter performance demonstrates the effectiveness of both our strategy and our execution. Total company revenue increased 4% sequentially, and adjusted operating income grew 6% with solid margins in both divisions,” commented Jeff Miller, Chairman, President and CEO.
“Both operating divisions experienced revenue growth in the international and North America Land markets. Our Completion and Production division delivered solid mid-teens margins, and our Drilling and Evaluation division margins maintained their steady momentum.
Looking ahead, he forecasted a multi-year upcycle unfolding.
Completion and Production revenue in the third quarter of 2021 was $2.1 billion, an increase of $88 million, or 4%, when compared to the second quarter of 2021, while operating income was $322 million, an increase of $5 million, or 2%.
Drilling and Evaluation revenue in the third quarter of 2021 was $1.7 billion, an increase of $65 million, or 4%, when compared to the second quarter of 2021, while operating income was $186 million, an increase of $11 million, or 6%.
North America revenue in the third quarter of 2021 was $1.6 billion, a 3% increase when compared to the second quarter of 2021. This increase was primarily driven by higher well construction services, artificial lift activity, and wireline activity in North America land, increased completion tool sales in the Gulf of Mexico, and additional stimulation and drilling activity in Canada. Partially offsetting these increases were reduced drilling-related, wireline, and stimulation activity in the Gulf of Mexico as a result of the impact from Hurricane Ida.
International revenue in the third quarter of 2021 was $2.2 billion, a 5% increase when compared to the second quarter of 2021. This improvement was primarily driven by higher activity across multiple product service lines in Latin America as well as higher well intervention services in the Europe/Africa/CIS region and well construction services across the Eastern Hemisphere.
Latin America revenue in the third quarter of 2021 was $624 million, a 17% increase sequentially. This improvement was driven by increased activity in multiple product service lines in Argentina, Mexico, and Brazil, as well as higher well construction services in Colombia and improved project management activity in Ecuador. These increases were partially offset by reduced fluid services in the Caribbean.
