|Segment Reporting [Abstract]|
Note 11 - Reportable Segments
Our business is comprised of two business lines: (1) Drilling Services and (2) Rental Tools Services. We report our Drilling Services business as two reportable segments: (1) U.S. (Lower 48) Drilling and (2) International & Alaska Drilling. We report our Rental Tools Services business as two reportable segments: (1) U.S. Rental Tools and (2) International Rental Tools.
Within the four reportable segments, we have aggregated our Arctic, Eastern Hemisphere, and Latin America business units under International & Alaska Drilling, one business unit under U.S. (Lower 48) Drilling, one business unit under U.S. Rental Tools, and one business unit under International Rental Tools, for a total of six business units. The Company has aggregated each of its business units in one of the four reporting segments based on the guidelines of the FASB ASC Topic No. 280, Segment Reporting. We eliminate inter-segment revenues and expenses. We disclose revenues under the four reportable segments based on the similarity of the use and markets for the groups of products and services within each segment.
Drilling Services Business
In our Drilling Services business, we drill oil, natural gas, and geothermal wells for customers in both the U.S. and international markets. We provide this service with both Company-owned rigs and customer-owned rigs. We refer to the provision of drilling services with customer-owned rigs as our operations and management (“O&M”) service in which operators own their own drilling rigs but choose Parker Drilling to operate and manage the rigs for them. The nature and scope of activities involved in drilling an oil and natural gas well is similar whether it is drilled with a Company-owned rig (as part of a traditional drilling contract) or a customer-owned rig (as part of an O&M contract). In addition, we provide project-related services, such as engineering, procurement, project management, commissioning of customer-owned drilling rig projects, operations execution, and quality and safety management. We have extensive experience and expertise in drilling geologically challenging wells and in managing the logistical and technological challenges of operating in remote, harsh, and ecologically sensitive areas.
U.S. (Lower 48) Drilling
Our U.S. (Lower 48) Drilling segment provides drilling services with our Gulf of Mexico (“GOM”) barge drilling rig fleet and markets our U.S. (Lower 48)-based O&M services. We also provide O&M services for customer-owned rigs in California. Our GOM barge rigs drill for oil and natural gas in shallow waters in and along the inland waterways and coasts of Louisiana, Alabama and Texas. The majority of these wells are drilled in shallow water depths ranging from 6 to 12 feet. Our rigs are suitable for a variety of drilling programs, from inland coastal waters requiring shallow draft barges, to open water drilling on both state and federal water projects requiring more robust capabilities. Contract terms typically consist of well-to-well or multi-well programs, most commonly ranging from 20 to 180 days.
International & Alaska Drilling
Our International & Alaska Drilling segment provides drilling services, using both Company-owned rigs and O&M contracts, and project-related services. The drilling markets in which this segment operates have one or more of the following characteristics:
We have rigs under contract in Alaska, Kazakhstan, the Kurdistan region of Iraq, Guatemala, Mexico, and on Sakhalin Island, Russia. In addition, we have O&M and ongoing project-related services for customer-owned rigs in Kuwait, Canada, Indonesia, and on Sakhalin Island, Russia.
Rental Tools Services Business
In our Rental Tools Services business, we provide premium rental equipment and services to exploration & production companies, drilling contractors, and service companies on land and offshore in the U.S. and select international markets. Tools we provide include standard and heavy-weight drill pipe, all of which are available with standard or high-torque connections, tubing, drill collars, pressure control equipment, including blowout preventers, and more. We also provide well construction services, which include tubular running services and downhole tool rentals, well intervention services, which include whipstocks,
fishing and related services, and inspection and machine shop support. Rental tools are used during drilling and/or workover programs and are requested by the customer as needed, requiring us to keep a broad inventory of rental tools in stock. Rental tools are usually rented on a daily or monthly basis.
U.S. Rental Tools
Our U.S. Rental Tools segment maintains an inventory of rental tools for deepwater, drilling, completion, workover, and production applications at facilities in Louisiana, Texas, Wyoming, North Dakota and West Virginia. We also provide well construction and well intervention services. Our largest single market for rental tools is U.S. land drilling, a cyclical market driven primarily by oil and natural gas prices and our customers’ access to project financing. A portion of our U.S. rental tools business supplies tubular goods and other equipment to offshore GOM customers.
International Rental Tools
Our International Rental Tools segment maintains an inventory of rental tools and provides well construction, well intervention, and surface and tubular services to our customers in the Middle East, Latin America, United Kingdom, Europe, and Asia-Pacific regions.
