An oil well isn't "a drill and be done with it" sort of effort. Indeed, a more adequate expression is endeavor, or even enterprise. A well is drilled using an increasingly complex array of tools and know-how and then brought to life through completion activities built on a century of expertise. Just as much is required to sustain production, because what we're likely talking about is not just one well—it's more likely an entire field. And the difference between an onshore field and an offshore one is vastly different in how they are approached.
That's where the people of Schlumberger come in.
