Oil Services: International Growth, Shale Changes

By Elliott H. Gue on Aug. 2, 2019

Since I began covering the energy industry in depth some two decades ago, one of the quarterly events I look forward to most is Schlumberger’s earnings release. 

There have now been three different CEOs since I began covering this company and market conditions for the company have changed dramatically over the years. However. one thing has remained constant – Schlumberger has an almost unique bird’s eye view of the industry with tentacles expanding into just about every oil-producing region of the world from West Texas to central Africa, Russia and Asia.

Over the years, management has always been a useful font of information regarding industry trends that’s pointed us to several profitable Energy & Income Advisor recommendations. And, just as valuable, Schlumbeger’s comments helped us to decide it was time to exit names like Seadrill when they were still flying high and before shareholders were wiped out by the oil price collapse starting in 2014.
