North American fracking leader Halliburton saw its revenues jump nearly 30 percent from a year ago as it reported a small overall profit for the second quarter.

Halliburton's $4.96 billion in second-quarter revenues are up 29 percent from the same time last year and 16 percent from the first quarter of 2017.
