Schlumberger Oilfield Services

As digital technology transforms oil and gas production with industrywide efficiencies, equipment utilization is on the rise, which also increases the stress on the equipment and the frequency of maintenance. To ensure that stimulation, completion and perforating equipment is prepared to perform reliably for every operation, Schlumberger’s new OneStim business, which is dedicated to North America operations, manages stimulation and completion equipment from an all-digital, centralized facility in Denton, Texas. There, service teams use real-time data analytics to predict—and prevent—the onset of major component failures.

Schlumberger Global Stewardship

The report describes Schlumberger Global Stewardship initiatives such as:

Technological expertise

The company has developed software technology that incorporates sustainability into its engineering and operational practices by modeling efficiency gains at the wellsite that yield a lower environmental footprint. By modeling its environmental footprint relative to metrics such as emissions, air quality, water use, noise, and chemical exposure, the unique web-based software is used to evaluate potential projects related to well stimulation. This software, known as the Stewardship Tool, has played an important role in the development of many next-generation technologies, such as the BroadBand unconventional reservoir completion services and the Automated Stimulation Delivery Platform.

Sustainable development

In 2017, Schlumberger became the first associate member of IPECA, the global oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues. Schlumberger participated in IPIECA’s development of Mapping the Oil and Gas Industry to the Sustainable Development Goals: an Atlas, a publication describing the implications of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the oil and gas industry and how IPIECA members may provide support in achieving these goals.

Community outreach

Schlumberger has a long-standing commitment to science and engineering as well as health and safety. This forms the basis of the company’s community outreach initiatives which includes programs that support science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education as well as health, safety and environment (HSE) workshops for youth—both local and global—many of which are supported by employee volunteers.
