Halliburton (-enˈhælɨbɜrtənpron; Nyse - HAL) is the world's second largest oilfield services corporation with operations in more than 70 countries. It has hundreds of subsidiaries, affiliates, branches, brands and divisions worldwide and employs over 50,000 people.

The company has dual headquarters located in Houston and in Dubai, where Chairman and CEO David J. Lesar works and resides, "to focus [the] company’s Eastern Hemisphere Growth." The company will remain incorporated in the United States.
