20 January 2023 SLB announced results for the fourth-quarter and full-year 2022.
Full-year 2022 revenue of $28.1 billion increased 23% year-on-year driven by activity increases internationally, in North America and across all Divisions. Full-year pretax operating margin of 18% increased 316 bps due to improved operating leverage from higher activity, a favorable activity mix, and an improving pricing environment. Full year net income increased 71% to $3.14 billion from $1.83 billion last year.
International revenue increased 20% to $21.9 billion led by Latin America and Europe/CIS/Africa with revenue growth of 27% and 25%, respectively, while revenue in the Middle East & Asia increased 12%. In North America, revenue increased 34% to $6.0 billion primarily driven by robust onshore drilling activity; higher sales of production systems; a strong contribution from the APS project in Canada; and increased exploration data licensing in the US Gulf of Mexico.
Digital & Integration
Digital & Integration full-year revenue of $3.7 billion increased 13% year on year, primarily driven by increased APS project activity in Ecuador and Canada and higher exploration data licensing sales in the US Gulf of Mexico.
Digital & Integration pretax operating margin of 36% expanded 177 bps year on year largely due to improved profitability in exploration data licensing.
Reservoir Performance full-year revenue of $5.6 billion increased 21% year on year as a result of strong international activity led by the Middle East & Asia and Latin America on higher activity and improved pricing.
Reservoir Performance pretax operating margin of 16% increased 177 bps year on year primarily due to improved profitability in intervention activity.
Well Construction full-year revenue of $11.4 billion grew 31% year on year with strong growth across all geographical areas led by North America and Latin America, which grew 56% and 53%, respectively. This growth was driven by higher land and offshore activity along with improved pricing.
Well Construction pretax operating margin of 19% expanded 560 bps year on year driven by the higher activity and improved pricing.
Production Systems full-year revenue of $7.9 billion increased 17% year on year driven by new projects and increased sales activity primarily in Europe, Africa, and North America. Double digit growth was posted in midstream, artificial lift, surface production systems and subsea production systems.
Production Systems pretax operating margin of 10% was essentially flat primarily as a result of higher logistics costs and a less favorable revenue mix.
During 2022, SLB sold 47.8 million of its shares of Liberty and recognized a gain of $325 million. During 2021, SLB sold 9.5 million of its shares of Liberty and recognized a gain of $28 million.
Interest expense of $490 million in 2022 decreased $49 million compared to 2021 primarily as a result of the repayment of $1.7 billion and $2.1 billion of debt during 2022 and 2021, respectively.
