Our Purpose, Vision, and Values

This is a pivotal time for the world’s energy industry. Global demand for energy is growing, as is the urgent need to address climate change. The energy mix is evolving, and as it becomes ever-more competitive, our resilience, efficiency, history of science and data, and commitment to our purpose are driving us forward as a company.

Our purpose

Together, we create amazing technology that unlocks access to energy for the benefit of all.

Every day, we work together to create industry-changing technology that unlocks cleaner, safer access to energy for every community, including those we live and work in. This purpose is timeless and enduring, and it will drive us through the decades to come.

Our vision

With our purpose in mind, our vision is to define and drive high performance for the energy industry, sustainably. To deliver energy in today’s dynamic and competitive environment, our customers need richer data and deeper insights to achieve a level of performance not previously possible across our industry. And we’re already ahead of the curve in this digital arena. We are the global leader in our field, providing vital technologies and services worldwide, and we have the digital capabilities that our customers need to achieve unparalleled performance.

Our vision extends to the global energy transition and our role in that future. By working to decarbonize operations through our Transition Technologies portfolio as well as investing in new energy technology ventures, we are advancing sustainability within our industry and helping customers reduce their environmental footprint across the E&P life cycle.

Our values

Just as our purpose and vision offer a clear and direct path for our future, so too do our three values: People, Technology, and Profit. These values have been, and always will be, our cultural compass and guiding light as we navigate our changing industry and strive to continue the legacy we’ve built since 1926. Thanks to our founders, brothers Conrad and Marcel, we have always been known for our talented people, technological innovations, and pioneering business spirit—and we continue to embrace these principles as we explore new horizons of growth.

  • People—Exceptional people join us from around the world because of who we are, and then they make us what we are. Committed to customers, constantly learning and growing, we thrive on the world’s biggest technical challenges, wherever they are found. This is the pulse and spirit of Schlumberger.
  • Technology—We were founded through invention, and we grow, prosper, and lead through continuous innovation and a commitment to practical excellence. Today, we are engineering a sustainable future for the energy industry and helping to create a better world for all.
  • Profits—Financial strength gives us the independence and resources to make brave calls about the future and drive bold, visionary innovation for the long term. Investment discipline matters: the returns we generate ensure our talent and technology are best in class, and the value we create is widely shared.
