Halliburton's revenue was $14.7 billion for the full year 2009, a decrease of 20% from the full year 2008, and operating income was $2.0 billion, a decrease of 50% from the full year 2008. Income from continuing operations for the full year 2009 was $1.2 billion, or $1.28 per diluted share, compared to 2008 income from continuing operations of $2.6 billion, or $2.91 per diluted share. These decreases were largely attributable to pricing declines and lower demand for products and services in North America due to a significant reduction in rig count during the early part of the year.
