"I never thought I would be so satisfied by barely making a profit. But given where this market is, I certainly am. Our company's animal spirits remain alive and well in North America, even though for some, they may feel caged in a bit by cash flow constraints in the short term." -- Halliburton Co. CEO Dave Lesar

"You have a fireball with regards to this drilling technology and the growing lateral lengths, which is really polarizing the market in separating guys who can only offer motors to the guys who can offer rotary steerable tools." -- Baker Hughes Inc. CEO Martin Craighead

"This emerging trend has already created a significant increase in the uptake of our high-end drilling technologies and has also provided our drilling group with a clear path toward profitability on land."
-- Schlumberger Ltd. CEO Paal Kibsgaard
