    Halliburton Cuts 8% of North American Jobs in Frack Slowdown

    (Bloomberg) -- Halliburton Co. is shifting strategy in its largest region to deal with subdued customer spending by trimming 8% of its North American workforce and shelving unused frack gear.The world’s biggest provider of fracking equipment, including heavy duty rock-blasting pumps and sand-storage silos, declined to tell analysts and investors Monday how much pressure-pumping gear it’s parked in the U.S. and Canada. The Houston-based contractor made the workforce cut in the region during the second quarter, while keeping its headcount elsewhere roughly the same, spokeswoman Emily Mir said.“We recognize the changing behavior of our North American customers and are executing a new playbook to keep generating returns and free cash flow,” Chief Executive Officer Jeff Miller said on the call. “What was the right playbook several years ago, when there was a different cadence and pace of customers’ spend, today needs to change.”Industry consultant Rystad Energy estimated in February that Halliburton and its competitors would have a year-end supply of 24.4 million horsepower for fracking, but would face demand of just 14.5 million this year. Shale producers have cut spending as investors pressure the companies to return cash to shareholders after the worse oil-price crash in a generation five years ago.Halliburton, the worst performer in the S&P 500 Index over the past 12 months before Monday, was the day’s biggest gainer in the group. The shares rose as much as 8.3% for the biggest intraday gain since November 2016, and were up 6.9% to $23.26 at 12:14 p.m. in New York.“Kudos for being proactive on the stacked equipment in this market versus fighting for share,” Angie Sedita, an analyst at Goldman Sachs Group Inc., said Monday on the call.(Updates with share price move in penultimate paragraph.)To contact the reporter on this story: David Wethe in Houston at dwethe@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Simon Casey at scasey4@bloomberg.net, Carlos Caminada, Reg GaleFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Schlumberger Taps Chairman Who Sought to Bypass Oil Servicers

    (Bloomberg) -- In an ironic twist, Schlumberger Ltd. is tapping as its chairman an executive who earned a reputation for building shale producers that bypass oil service companies.Mark Papa, 72, who will take over as chairman of the world’s biggest oilfield service provider next month, helped give birth to the U.S. shale boom a decade ago by building Enron Corp. castoff EOG Resources Inc. into one of the nation’s biggest explorers. He’s now running Centennial Resource Development Inc.In his new role, Papa will help Schlumberger’s next chief executive officer, Olivier Le Peuch, tackle an industry downturn as investors pressure producers to rein in spending and return cash to shareholders. Le Peuch, 55, and Papa will replace Paal Kibsgaard, 51, who’s stepping down as chairman and CEO.A key Papa trademark is bypassing technology from the oilfield servicers, opting instead for in-house innovations. It’s what led Paul Sankey, then an analyst at Wolfe Research, to dub EOG under Papa’s watch the “APPL of oil,” referring to the trading symbol for Apple Inc. Papa did that again at Centennial, hiring key former EOG executives to help make technology one of the pillars of his new company.“It wasn’t the service companies that provided the advances in shale technology,” Papa said with a chuckle in a 2017 interview. “They’re marketing that stuff and saying it was them, but it wasn’t the service companies that provided the technical breakthroughs.”Papa has encountered some roadblocks at Centennial, the blank-check company he founded after retiring from EOG in 2013. Shares of the explorer have plunged 46% this year as it joins other producers in trimming spending amid volatile oil prices.To contact the reporter on this story: David Wethe in Houston at dwethe@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Simon Casey at scasey4@bloomberg.net, Christine Buurma, Reg GaleFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
