Shares of Halliburton Company (HAL) rose in pre-market trade Monday after the energy services company reported third-quarter earnings that narrowly topped Wall Street estimates for profit and revenue.

For the quarter ended September 2018, the Houston, Texas-based company, which provides services to oil and natural gas companies, reported earnings of $0.50 per share on revenue of $6.2 billion. The consensus earnings estimate was $0.49 per share on revenue of $6.1 billion. Revenue grew 13.4% on a year-over-year basis.

Halliburton stock climbed 1.8% to $38.25 before the opening bell.

The company said operating income of $716 million was 9% below the second quarter, mostly due to a weak North American market for completion services.

"In North America, a combination of offtake capacity constraints and our customers' budget exhaustion led to less demand than expected for completion services," Halliburton CEO Jeff Miller said in a statement. "I believe that these are temporary issues, and that the catalysts for improving demand for services are clearly visible: supportive commodity pricing, expanding offtake capacity, building well inventory, and reloaded customer budgets."

Miller said the outlook for global commodity supply and demand dynamics is "constructive."  

“Our international business continues to show signs of a steady recovery, with revenue increasing 5% sequentially, and every international region growing this quarter,” said Miller.
