The company remains incorporated in the United States.Halliburton's major business segment is the Energy Services Group . ESG provides technical products and services for petroleum and natural gas exploration and production. Halliburton's former subsidiary, KBR, is a major construction company of refineries, oil fields, pipelines, and chemical plants. Halliburton announced on April 5, 2007 that it had sold the division and severed its corporate relationship with KBR, which had been its contracting, engineering and construction unit as a part of the company.The company has been involved in numerous controversies, including the Deepwater Horizon explosion, for which it agreed to settle outstanding legal claims against it by paying litigants $1.1 billion.As of August 1, 2014 Jeff Miller was promoted to President of Halliburton reporting directly to Dave Lesar.On November 17, 2014 Halliburton and Baker Hughes jointly announced a definitive agreement under which Halliburton will, subject to the conditions set forth in the agreement, acquire Baker Hughes in a stock and cash transaction valued at $34.6 billion.

HOUSTON (Reuters) - BP Plc said workers on Alaska's North Slope had brought under control a company-operated well that spewed oil and gas over the weekend. The leak was discovered on Friday and a team from BP, the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and local government was brought in to coordinate efforts. The team halted the well leaks overnight, BP said in a statement on Monday. The volume of the leak was not disclosed. A BP spokesman said details of what caused the loss of control were not available. The oil producer had retained Halliburton Co's well control specialists to kill the well, the spokesman said. ADEC earlier said in a statement that well pipe had temporarily "jacked up" or risen vertically about 3 feet to 4 feet, causing a pressure gauge to break off. BP has dealt with several spills and leaks in Alaska in the past. In 2006, a corroded pipeline released nearly 5,000 barrels of crude oil, the largest oil spill in the North Slope at the time. Another spill occurred in 2009 that saw just over 1,000 barrels leak. In 2010, a BP-operated drilling rig called Deepwater Horizon exploded, killing 11 people and spilling nearly 5 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, making it the largest oil spill in U.S. federal waters. BP eventually agreed to pay $18.7 billion to settle all federal and state claims related to the spill.


Although PMR maintains a positive outlook on the global distributed acoustic sensing market, few challenges can impede the growth of the market. Depreciating oil prices and large volume of data generated by distributed acoustic sensing are currently the key impediments to growth. By application, Persistence Market Research has segmented the distributed acoustic sensing market into oilfield services, pipeline management, security & surveillance, and transport services. Oilfield services accounted for the largest revenue share of the market; by 2025, this segmented is projected to reach 63.3% in revenues. In terms of revenues, this segment is projected to reach a market value of over US$ 1.26 billion. A sample of this report is available upon request @ http://www.persistencemarketresearch.com/samples/12673 Unsurprisingly, Middle East & Africa (MEA) is the largest market for distributed acoustic sensors. The region is expected to account for a revenue share of 38.1% in 2017. North America is the second largest market for distributed acoustic sensors globally. In North America, the U.S. continues to dominate the demand for distributed acoustic sensors, with nearly 75% revenue share of the market. Leading companies profiled by Persistence Market Research in its report are Halliburton Co., Schlumberger Limited, Optasense, Baker Hughes Incorporated, Future Fibre Technologies, Fotech Solutions Ltd., Silixa Ltd., Bandweaver, Omnisens SA, and Hifi Engineering Inc.

Geophysical prospecting may be achieved using borehole seismic data and processing velocity seismic profiles using downward continuation to simulate the seismic source being at the depth of the borehole receivers. Such methods may involve collecting seismic data for a subterranean formation with at least one borehole receiver; grouping the seismic data into a one common receiver gather corresponding to each borehole receiver; performing a downward continuation on at least one of the common receiver gathers to produce corresponding downward continued common receiver gathers; performing a normal moveout analysis on at least one of the downward continued common receiver gathers to produce corresponding semblance velocity spectra; and analyzing at least one of the semblance velocity spectra for a zone of interest in the subterranean formation.
