Our preferred suppliers are those that work with us in a professional, ethical, competitive, and cost-effective manner consistent with Schlumberger policies, procedures, and business objectives. We believe this type of supplier relationship encourages use of supply chain best practices and adds value for all involved in the process.

We procure goods and services only from financially stable, technically qualified, and reliable sources.
