Stewardship Tool

Evaluating Potential Environmental Impacts

Video

Stakeholders discuss how the HiWAY flow-channel fracturing system can decrease not only water usage but also proppant quantities and wellsite equipment requirements—all of which reduces truck traffic and CO2 emissions. The image on the monitor shows the overall reduction in environmental footprint by adopting the optimized case (in blue) versus the conventional method, or base case (in red).

The Stewardship Tool is a unique web-based software developed by Schlumberger that incorporates sustainability into engineering and operational practices. By modeling efficiency gains at the wellsite, we can enable our customers to drill faster and with better accuracy while lowering environmental impacts.

The Stewardship Tool currently models the environmental footprint of a job relative to 19 key performance indicators including emissions, air quality, water use, noise and environmental exposure. The software is currently used to evaluate potential projects related to site mobilization, drilling and well stimulation with the development of a production module being a key focus for 2019. The tool has been used in the development of new technologies that feature environmental benefits, including BroadBand Sequence* fracturing service and our Automated Stimulation Delivery Platform.

Schlumberger is currently using the Stewardship Tool in completions-related new product development where environmental aspects are a critical area of focus. The tool’s drilling module is in the process of being rolled out to drilling-related product development centers. Externally, we are introducing the Stewardship Tool to customers for use in development planning and stakeholder engagement activities.

For more information on the Stewardship Tool and other Schlumberger environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives, please review our Global Stewardship report. For inquiries, please submit a Global Stewardship form.
