Outlook

Schlumberger CEO Olivier Le Peuch said in a statement, “Our year-to-date high single-digit international revenue growth continues to be underpinned by international investment levels. Market uncertainty, however, is weighing on future oil demand outlook in a climate where trade concerns are seen as challenging global economic growth.”

The company continues to get hurt by the negative sentiments on the oil & gas industry, which is particularly sensitive to the global economic slowdown. The oilfield services industry continues to face low capacity utilization and depressed margins due to lower exploration and production capital expenditure.

Schlumberger CEO and Chairman Paal Kibsgaard stepped down on Aug. 1. COO Olivier Le Peuch took over as chief executive and join the board.
