- "Schlumberger's (NYSE:SLB) 1Q 2015 conference call highlighted what could be a growing trend in the US oil patch, the refracking of older horizontal oil and gas wells. The massive 40+% decline in drilling and fracking activity means lots of equipment now sits idle and the 15% workforce reductions SLB has announced to date means that a lot of work crews are still sitting around."
