H&P saw increases in operating revenue and revenue days across all its segments on a year-over-year basis. The US Land Operations and Offshore Operations segments posted increases in average rig revenue per day but the International Land Operations segment saw a decline.

The company expects to continue its investments in super-spec upgrades and value-added technologies over the coming year.
