Knowledge, technical innovation and teamwork are at the center of who we are. For more than 80 years, we have focused on leveraging these assets to deliver solutions that improve customer performance.
Today, our real-time technology services and solutions enable customers to translate acquired data into useful information, and then transform this information into knowledge for improved decision making-anytime, anywhere. Harnessing information technology in this way offers enormous opportunities to enhance efficiency and productivity. This is a quantum leap from providing traditional ‘just-in-case’ information to delivering ‘just-in-time’ knowledge that meets the changing needs of our customers.
Reflecting our belief that diversity spurs creativity, collaboration, and understanding of customers’ needs, we employ over 80,000 people of about 160 nationalities working in approximately 80 countries. Our employees are committed to working with our customers to create the highest level of added value. Knowledge communities and special interest groups with our organization enable teamwork and knowledge sharing unencumbered by geographic boundaries.
With 23 research and engineering facilities worldwide, we place strong emphasis on developing innovative technology that adds value for our customers. In 2009, we invested $802 million in Research and Development.
In Schlumberger projects are never the same. We became experts in different areas. The company hires engineers from the best universities in the world. Therefore, in a project the team consists typically of people from different backgrounds, countries, cultures and a variety of perspectives.
This is what makes working in Schlumberger so interesting…and it is definitely never boring!
