Prioritizing performance improvements

Schlumberger captures its own performance data via QUEST, an online system that provides immediate consolidation of HSE information. Accessible by all employees, QUEST monitors reporting of HSE events and Risk Identification Reports (RIRs), facilitates investigations and records audits, manages remedial work plans (RWPs), shows improvement suggestions, posts recognitions, tracks HSE training, and facilitates HSE reports and data analysis.

For 90 years, Schlumberger technological innovations have provided value for oil and gas operators by helping them increase production and recovery from nonrenewable resources—efficiently and with lower environmental impact. We strive to be a unifying voice for social and environmental stewardship in the communities where we and our customers live and work.
