Severe weather during the winter months results in reduced activity levels in the North Sea and Russia in the first quarter. Scheduled repair and maintenance of offshore facilities in the North Sea could reduce activity in the second and third quarters. Many of the company’s international oilfield customers increase orders for certain products and services in the fourth quarter. The Industrial Services segment experiences lower sales during the first and fourth quarters of the year due to the Northern Hemisphere winter.
