Our Code of Conduct

The Schlumberger Blue Print in Action—Our Code of Conduct applies to all Schlumberger directors, officers, and employees of the company. It is designed to help each employee handle business situations professionally and fairly.  It explains how our actions reflect on the company and how the company is therefore the sum of our actions.  The Blue Print in Action reinforces the Blue Print – Our Identity, which summarizes our purpose, ambitions, values and the mindset we need to succeed.

The Schlumberger Blue Print in Action—Our Code of Conduct is reviewed periodically and amended as appropriate.

Notice Regarding Updated Schlumberger Blue Print in Action—Our Code of Conduct

As of April 2013, we are changing and improving upon our 2008 “Code of Ethics” with the following major revisions:

Introduced two companion documents:
  • The Schlumberger Blue Print – Our Identity defines us as a company and outlines Our Purpose, Ambitions, Values and Mindset.  This document is designed to assist employees in understanding and applying these elements in order for Schlumberger to continue its success in today’s increasingly complex and competitive oil and gas industry.
  • The Schlumberger Blue Print in Action – Our Code Conduct replaces the existing Code of Ethics and reinforces the understanding of the Blue Print – Our Identity.  The Code of Conduct is a practical guide to the behavior required of all Schlumberger employees as we go about our daily lives. 

Together these documents help employees to live up to the superior standards that have made Schlumberger the world’s leading oilfield services company.

       circumstances, such as when health or safety is at risk
  • Embedded stand-alone internal policies within the Code of Conduct
  • Reinforced reporting and retaliation messaging
