NABORS WILL BE LOWER
NE. Nabors Industries Ltd. (NYSE:NBR) today announced that it expects first quarter earnings per share to fall below consensus estimates. The impact is essentially confined to the Completion Services segment and should approximate $0.07 per share. The Company attributed the shortfall to the persistent extraordinary weather and the resulting delays in some customers' well completion activity.
Tony Petrello, Nabors' Chairman and CEO, commented, "As we noted on our fourth-quarter earnings call, our first-quarter outlook for the Completion Services segment was cautious. Approximately 60% of our pressure pumping horsepower operates in the Northern region, which includes basins in the Rocky Mountains and Appalachia. Severe winter weather in those areas continued to affect our pumping operations through February and into early March, though to a lesser degree than in January. The weather has also impacted many northern based frac sand mines, tightening availability, and could further impact our results. Our other operations appear to be in-line to favorable compared to expectations.
"We view the first quarter's operating performance in Completion Services as temporary. Weather notwithstanding, improving underlying demand for pressure pumping gives us a constructive, though tempered, outlook for this business through the remainder of 2014. As for the balance of our business lines, our near- and longer-term outlooks remain intact."
