Alternate Path shunt tube technology has been licensed to Schlumberger by ExxonMobil since 1995. Since then, Schlumberger has successfully installed more than 1,000 Alternate Path systems for more than 70 operators in more than 30 countries.

This extensive track record has given us the detailed knowledge of the Alternate Path system—including its challenges and the solutions—to ensure full annular packs and high-productivity sand control completions.
