    Schlumberger reports slight profit beat, warns of sluggish U.S. growth

    Production has outpaced available pipeline takeaway capacity and driven prices lower, but Schlumberger expects the bottlenecks to be resolved in the next 12 to 18 months. "The North America land market is changing pretty rapidly," Chief Executive Officer Paal Kibsgaard said during a third-quarter earnings call. The "rapid softening" in both hydraulic fracturing activity and pricing seen during the second half of the third quarter will continue at the same pace into the fourth quarter, he added.

    Schlumberger reports slight profit beat despite sluggish U.S. growth

    Although profits rose year-over-year, the company has been hit by slower-than-anticipated growth in the Permian basin, where production has outpaced available pipeline takeaway capacity and is driving prices lower. Schlumberger said it expects those bottlenecks to be resolved within the next 12 to 18 months. "In North America, sequential growth remained positive but slowed from rates of previous quarters as takeaway constraints in the Permian impacted hydraulic fracturing activity," Chief Executive Officer Paal Kibsgaard said on Friday.
