Orders this quarter represent the second straight quarter of strengthening bookings. We saw off the pandemic lows of 2020 and most of 2021.”
He continued, “Along with Dril-Quip continued focus on our strategic growth pillars of peer-to-peer collaboration, downhole tools expansion, and e-Series technology position us well for our expected 20% year-over-year growth in orders. The customer response from our Aker Solutions collaboration agreement has been strong. We are beginning to align and dedicate resources to this effort that we expect will be an emerging revenue stream for us in the coming years.”
