Schlumberger Announces Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year 2009 Results

Schlumberger Limited (NYSE:SLB) today reported full-year 2009 revenue of $22.70 billion versus $27.16 billion in 2008.

Income from continuing operations attributable to Schlumberger, excluding charges, was $3.36 billion, representing diluted earnings-per-share of $2.78 versus $4.50 in 2008. Income from continuing operations attributable to Schlumberger, including charges, was $3.16 billion, representing diluted earnings-per-share of $2.61 versus $4.42 in 2008.

Fourth-Quarter Results

Fourth-quarter revenue was $5.74 billion versus $5.43 billion in the third quarter of 2009, and $6.87 billion in the fourth quarter of 2008.

Income from continuing operations attributable to Schlumberger was $817 million—an increase of 4% sequentially, but 34% lower year-on-year excluding $93 million of charges in the fourth quarter of 2008. Diluted earnings-per-share from continuing operations attributable to Schlumberger was $0.67 versus $0.65 in the previous quarter, and $1.03 excluding $0.08 of charges in the fourth quarter of 2008.

Oilfield Services revenue of $5.17 billion was up 4% sequentially but down 17% year-on-year. Pretax segment operating income of $1.01 billion was down 3% sequentially and 37% year-on-year.

WesternGeco revenue of $549 million was up 19% sequentially but down 8% year-on-year. Pretax segment operating income of $115 million was up 89% sequentially and 30% year-on-year.

Schlumberger Chairman and CEO Andrew Gould commented, "Fourth-quarter revenue increased sequentially in the North America, Latin America and Middle East and Asia Areas as offshore revenue quality improved with increasing deepwater rig count while software and product sales saw the usual fourth-quarter strength. Europe/CIS/Africa was flat with the previous quarter as stronger offshore activity and year-end software and product sales in the Area were not sufficient to offset the seasonal decline in Russia. Overall, sequential margins were particularly affected by three events—a changed revenue mix in Canada; seasonal weakness in Russia; and reduced activity coupled with a less favorable revenue mix in the Mexico/Central America GeoMarket. Margins were also impacted by pricing concessions made earlier in the year.

WesternGeco achieved highly satisfactory fourth-quarter Multiclient revenues due largely to wide-azimuth survey sales in the US Gulf of Mexico.

Our outlook for 2010 remains largely dependent on the prospects for the general economy. At the end of the third quarter, we indicated that we were encouraged that signs were emerging that demand for oil and gas would begin to increase. Consensus forecasts predict that oil demand in 2010 will increase, particularly in the developing world, for the first time since 2007.

As a result, we feel that oil prices are likely to be sustained at current levels and that as our customers' confidence grows, their exploration and production budgets will increase. We feel that considerable leverage to increase investment exists in offshore markets, in Russia, as well as in certain emerging opportunities such as Iraq. These events will be dependent on continued increases in economic growth in the second half of the year beyond the current government stimulus packages.

For natural gas activity we remain a great deal more cautious. Despite signs of some recovery in industrial demand and the impact of the recent cold weather, we consider that markets remain generally oversupplied. Increased flows of LNG—with additional capacity being added in 2010—as well as the general uncertainty over the decline rates of unconventional gas production have the potential to limit the current increase in the North American gas drilling rig count.

We anticipate that 2010 will be a better year for multiclient seismic sales and for land seismic activity particularly in Middle East and North Africa. While marine activity will be reasonably robust, pricing improvements will be limited due to continued new capacity additions.

Longer term we remain confident that considerably increased spending will be necessary to maintain sufficient reserves and production of hydrocarbons to meet the world's needs. Our technology portfolio and worldwide infrastructure mean we are strongly positioned to capture growth opportunities as our customers begin to increase their investment."

UPDATE 1-Schlumberger in $11.34 bln deal to buy Smith Int'l

NEW YORK, Feb 21 (Reuters) - Schlumberger Ltd said it agreed to buy Smith International in a $11.34 billion all-stock deal that values Smith stock at a 37.5 percent premium over Thursday's closing price.

Under the deal announced on Sunday, Smith shareholders will receive 0.6966 shares of Schlumberger for each Smith share. Based on Thursday's closing prices, the deal values Smith at $45.84 a share.

Schlumberger said it expects the acquisition to add to earnings per share in 2012.

The Wall Street Journal on Friday had reported Schlumberger was in advanced talks to buy Smith International.

The deal expands the oilfield services leader's arsenal as the weakened sector begins to recover.

Shares in Smith International closed up 13 percent at $37.70 on Friday, while shares in Schlumberger closed down 2.9 percent at $63.90.

die abiotische Theorie über die Entstehung von Erdöl verdichtet sich immer mehr, was bedeutet, daß alle Peakberichte und Verfügbarkeitstheorien Makulatur sind...
Natürlich wird das von den Ölkonzernen nicht zum Thema gemacht, denn man möchte ja von den "knappen Vorkommen" profitieren.
Smith war Marktführer in der Tiefenbohrung und hatte das Know How für Bohrungen tiefer als 10.000 m. Damit schluckte man eine Firma, die zum gefährlichen Konkurrenten hätte werden können...

Jetzt kann man in aller Gemütsruhe dort bohren, wo Erdöl noch nie auf der Tagesordnung stand....
Je nachdem, wieweit Schlumberger die Schublade aufmacht, wird die alternative Energie über den Status eines kontrollierten Nischenplayer nicht hinauskommen.

Dann könnte Schlumberger evtl. das Papier sein, dass der TAIPAN mit seiner neuen reißerischen Werbung meint (?) ---- auf jeden Fall ist da ja auch heftigst von der abiotischen Theorie die Rede ....

Schlumberger Buys Nexus Geo
By: Zacks Equity Research
March 11, 2010 |

The oilfield services giant Schlumberger Ltd. (SLB - Analyst Report) has acquired Nexus Geosciences, Inc, a Houston-based provider of integrated seismic software and services for rapid imaging, modeling and interpretation.

Though the company has not provided any numbers regarding the deal, Nexus will be grouped under Schlumberger’s WesternGeco segment. WesternGeco provides worldwide reservoir imaging, monitoring, and development services and owns the world’s largest multi-client seismic library.

Nexus has developed proprietary technologies for fast imaging and modeling, enabling oil and gas companies to rapidly build, update and validate their velocity models and reduce uncertainties in the most complex geological environments.

Management believes the combination of Nexus’ expertise and WesternGeco advanced imaging solutions and global reach will allow Schlumberger to help customers face these challenges more effectively.

A number of significant acquisitions on the technological front in the past have accelerated the company’s growth. In 2008, the company had acquired Exploration Systems (IES) (a Germany-based supplier of advanced petroleum systems modeling software and services for the E&P industry) and Extreme Engineering Ltd (a Canada-based leading supplier of unmanned measurement-while-drilling – MWD – systems).

Schlumberger continues to benefit from its technology driven superior products and services. The company’s solid technology portfolio and worldwide infrastructure implies that Schlumberger is strongly positioned to capture growth opportunities as its customers begin to increase their investment. Since the beginning of last week, price of Schlumberger shares has been up 4.5% to $64.20 at Wednesday’s closing.

Schlumberger’s New Technique
By: Zacks Equity Research
July 01, 2010 | Comments: 0

The leading oilfield services company Schlumberger Limited (SLB - Analyst Report) launched a new stimulation technique – HiWAY – which helps maximize hydrocarbon recovery and production volumes. It is basically a hydraulic fracturing technique redefined by removing the link between flow within the fracture and proppant pack conductivity.

The company provides technology, project management and information services to the global oil and gas industry. These include drilling fluids, directional drilling and real-time drilling analysis as well as completion services. The new fracturing technique adds another feather to Schlumberger’s cap.

HiWAY is effective for the enhancement of production volumes and reduction of flowback times. With the use of this new technique, production rate for a well will increase by approximately 53% than the conventional fracturing techniques. Schlumberger has successfully deployed HiWAY in Argentina, Russia, Mexico and in the United States.

Given a greater need for stimulation and completion services in North America and the current trend in oilfield services, we believe Schlumberger is favorably positioned.

Apart from various organic means, the company has also been active on the inorganic front to continuously improve its product and technology portfolio. In March, Schlumberger purchased Nexus Geosciences Inc, a Houston-based provider of integrated seismic software and services for rapid imaging, modeling and interpretation. Immediately after this, the company also purchased Geoservices, a French oilfield services company that specializes in mud logging and production surveillance operations.

With the recent growth in exploration activity, particularly in deepwater Iraq and Russia, the company will benefit from its product and technology portfolio and low-cost provider position. We currently have a Neutral recommendation for Schlumberger shares.

Schlumberger Limited (NYSE:SLB) today reported second-quarter 2010 revenue of $5.94 billion versus $5.60 billion in the first quarter of 2010, and $5.53 billion in the second quarter of 2009.

Income from continuing operations attributable to Schlumberger excluding charges was $818 million—an increase of 9% sequentially and essentially flat year-on-year. Diluted earnings-per-share from continuing operations attributable to Schlumberger excluding charges was $0.68 versus $0.62 in the previous quarter, and $0.68 in the second quarter of 2009.

Schlumberger recorded charges of $75 million ($0.06 per share) in the first quarter of 2010 and $207 million ($0.17 per share) in the second quarter of 2009. There were no charges recorded in the second quarter of 2010.

Oilfield Services revenue of $5.44 billion increased 7% sequentially and 10% year-on-year. Pretax segment operating income of $1.07 billion was up 11% sequentially and 5% year-on-year.

WesternGeco revenue of $476 million increased 1% sequentially but decreased 15% year-on-year. Pretax segment operating income of $47 million decreased 31% sequentially and 52% year-on-year.

Schlumberger Chairman and CEO Andrew Gould commented, "Sequential revenue increases were recorded in all Areas as were sequential margin improvements led by strong performances in North America and Latin America.

In North America, high activity and improved pricing in the US Land GeoMarket more than offset the revenue effects of the Canadian spring break-up and the reduced offshore activity late in the quarter following the start of the drilling moratorium in the US Gulf of Mexico. In Latin America, Mexico and Brazil led the revenue improvement.

In the other Areas, activity steadily improved as we had forecast. In Europe/CIS/Africa, a strong rebound in Russia and the North Sea was somewhat offset by slow activity in North Africa and lower demand for exploration-related services in West&South Africa.

At WesternGeco, flat revenues were accompanied by a significant decrease in operating income as strong increases in Marine and Data Processing could not offset the lower margin effect of reduced Multiclient activity following the seasonally stronger first-quarter sales.

Looking forward to the remainder of the year, we see a continued slow build of activity in the second half in most parts of the world. In particular, US Land, Brazil, North Sea and Russia will be GeoMarkets of continued strength. Meanwhile, we see continued growth across most of the Middle East&Asia GeoMarkets. This will be partially offset by reductions in IPM activity in Mexico in both Chicontepec and Burgos.

In the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, we are not planning for any resumption of drilling activity this year. In deepwater activity elsewhere we have not seen, nor do we expect to see, any significant delays or program reductions as a result of the US Gulf of Mexico drilling moratorium. Internationally, operators, contractors and regulatory bodies have stepped up maintenance and verification of key well control equipment and procedures, but have not restricted actual drilling activity.

The outlook for WesternGeco will be governed by the evolution of the Multiclient market in the US Gulf of Mexico, which remains uncertain at this time.

At Schlumberger we began a program three years ago called "Excellence in Execution." This program was designed to create a step change in the service quality and efficiency we provide and, in deepwater, was aimed at enabling our clients to reduce the risk and cost of deepwater operations. The program, in addition to equipment and procedural improvements, provides for competency certification of all personnel involved in deepwater operations. We are encouraged by the results as well as by our customers' acceptance of this multiyear initiative.

We believe that the contribution of deepwater discoveries has been, and will remain, very significant to future hydrocarbon production. We therefore welcome the current efforts to better understand and control the risks associated with these types of operations. While additional control and oversight will undoubtedly add cost, we expect this will be offset in the long run by improvements in operating procedures and technology.

The recovery in world demand for oil has been reasonably robust and current forecasts for the coming year remain consistent with slowly increasing levels of exploration and production activity. Natural gas economics remain more challenging, as supply of both LNG and unconventional gas in the US would appear to continue to outstrip the demand recovery. Overall, therefore, we see the current trend of a slow but sure recovery in activity as likely to continue without change until we have a clearer view of the sustainability of the recovery in the world economy."

Other Events:

* On April 23, 2010, Schlumberger completed the acquisition of Geoservices, a privately-owned French oilfield services company specialized in mud logging, slickline and production surveillance operations. The total value of the transaction, including the assumption of net debt, was approximately $1.0 billion.
* During the quarter, Schlumberger repurchased 8.4 million shares of its common stock at an average price of $63.33 for a total purchase price of $535 million under the stock repurchase program approved by the Schlumberger Board of Directors on April 17, 2008.
