Oct 16 (Reuters) - Top oilfield services provider Schlumberger NV on Friday posted its third straight quarterly loss as this year’s prolonged slump in oil prices due to the COVID-19 pandemic compelled its major energy customers to shun drilling.
The company reported a net loss of $82 million, or 6 cents per share, for the third quarter ended Sept. 30.
Schlumberger reported a net loss of $11.38 billion, or $8.22 per share, a year earlier, due to impairment charges on some of the company’s past investments. (Reporting by Shariq Khan in Bengaluru; Editing by Sriraj Kalluvila)
