SWOT Analysis


Innovation! Helmerich & Payne has outmaneuvered all its competitors to become the leader in U.S. land drilling. A pristine balance sheet and high operating cash flow add to an already compelling story.

The supremacy of its FlegRig line provides HP a competitive advantage over competitors. Their market share is increasing during the current challenging environment for the industry.


Low oil prices has caused the demand for oil rigs to plunge. There is tremendous oversupply of rigs available. As old contracts expire, renewals will be at much lower rates.


During challenging times the strong take advantage of the weak. HP has the financial strength to weather tough times and take advantage of the competition.


The company operates in an industry that is extremely competitive and prone to wide swings in supply and demand. A prolonged (many years) downturn in oil prices is hurting all players, including Helmerich & Payne.
