Drilling

Delivering the most from making-hole time

Boring a hole into the Earth from surface to total depth—that’s a classic definition of drilling and at the heart of what we’re involved in. But if you step back, what we really do is help fuel transportation, industry, medicine, agriculture, science, space, and technology. And it all starts with drilling the well, and every well is an accomplishment because no two are ever exactly alike. The people at the controls—while taking advantage of an astonishing level of science and chemistry—understand what they are drilling into and how best to drill through it without actually seeing within the environment they operate.

That’s where the people of Schlumberger come in.

We have curious people genuinely interested in solving the challenges of efficiently drilling and accurately placing oil and gas wells. They consequently deliver leading technologies that range from groundbreaking bit and cutting element technologies, along with drilling fluids and mud logging capabilities, to the individual hardware components of the BHA in a fully integrated system, and the deep knowledge of instrumentation, software optimization, and automation.
