Beginning with the formation of Forex Neptune and our joint venture with Arabian Drilling Company and continuing with the recent acquisition of Saxon Energy Services, Schlumberger has more than 50 years of international drilling experience. Our fleet of 100-plus drilling and workover rigs are in operation in multiple locations around the globe, including North America, South America, the Middle East, Asia, and Australia.
Enabled by Schlumberger proprietary software, our rigs are evolving into a well construction platform that can be combined with our industry-leading capabilities in downhole and surface technologies. This provides a truly integrated well construction service that delivers a step change in overall drilling performance.
With complete design, engineering, and manufacturing capabilities, we have expertise that ranges from pressure control devices and software control systems to pipe-handling equipment and top drives.
In 2015, we acquired US-based T&T Engineering Services, an industry leader in land rig design. We have also established a joint venture with Bauer Maschinen GmbH, the world leader in foundation drilling equipment manufacturing. Through this partnership, we have access to global rig manufacturing capabilities in Germany, the US, the Middle East, and Asia.
These capabilities—coupled with our established drilling services and product offerings—give us the unique in-house capability to provide a truly integrated well construction offering.
