At Schlumberger, we understand that technology is only as valuable as its operational impact. We continuously optimize every solution, large and small, to anticipate the evolving needs of our customers and industry. Digital and domain expertise fuels this innovation loop at every stage, from design, development, and deployment through testing and optimizations that begin the cycle again.

A Next-Level Digital Foundation

Our experts are leaders in the digital forces shaping the world. We use robust real-time data and domain expertise to drive every decision, bringing together technology development, manufacturing, and lifecycle management applications like never before.

True innovation is greater than the sum of its parts. Working from a strong digital foundation, our teams transform the cloud, big data, user experience, and cybersecurity into E&P solutions that move the needle for our customers. We craft customized end-to-end workflows and integrated systems to enhance efficiency and reliability. We leverage the power and storage elasticity of the cloud, the efficiency of high-performance computing, and the connectivity of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to create technologies tailored to each domain’s biggest challenges. To close the feedback loop, we deploy digitally enabled equipment that monitors health, automates processes, and optimizes performance for each location's environment and geography.

These next-level innovations are only possible when data and expertise are combined to craft domain-driven digital solutions.
