Our story begins with what it truly means to be a technology innovator. Our common sense of purpose unites 82,000 people representing 170 nationalities with products, sales and services in more than 120 countries. We supply the industry’s most comprehensive range of products and services, from exploration through production, and integrated pore-to-pipeline solutions that optimize hydrocarbon recovery to deliver reservoir performance sustainably.

We believe energy makes society progress, so we find ways to help our customer's fuel agriculture, industry, medicine, science, space, technology, and transportation. And it all starts with competent and talented teams working together to drill wells through subterranean environments they can never actually see. It takes a combination of engineering disciplines, along with computer science, geophysics, and metallurgy.

Our curiosity drives us to better understand what our customers do, how they do it, and what they need to help overcome their challenges. We’re always developing methods and processes using ever-less-invasive means minimizing environmental footprints while maximizing positive influence on the communities in which we live and work.

For 80 years, Schlumberger established itself as a local and trusted partner to Saudi Aramco by creating in-country talent together with a comprehensive ecosystem including product research, development, and manufacturing to the implementation of E&P technology solutions.  We were the first to establish a world-class manufacturing center in King Salman Energy Park (SPARK) that supports Saudi Aramco’s In-Kingdom Total Value Add (IKTVA) program to promote economic growth.
