This year should mark an acceleration of growth in North America, to over 7%, led by the U.S., coupled with continued solid growth (+6%) in international markets, particularly in the Middle East, Latin America and Russia. Capital bud-gets in the U.S. and Canada are expected to rise 8.5% and 3%, respectively. Companies are basing 2014 spending plans on oil prices averaging $98 Brent and $89 WTI, and U.S. natural gas prices at about $3.66 Mcf.
