Forward-looking Statements
This Form 10-K and other statements we make contain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the
federal securities laws, which include any statements that are not historical facts, such as our forecasts or expectations
regarding business outlook; growth for Schlumberger as a whole and for each of its segments (and for specified
products or geographic areas within each segment); oil and natural gas demand and production growth; oil and natural
gas prices; improvements in operating procedures and technology; capital expenditures by Schlumberger and the oil
and gas industry; the business strategies of Schlumberger’s customers; future global economic conditions; and future
results of operations. These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, global
economic conditions; changes in exploration and production spending by Schlumberger’s customers and changes in the
level of oil and natural gas exploration and development; general economic, political and business conditions in key
regions of the world; pricing erosion; weather and seasonal factors; operational delays; production declines; changes in
government regulations and regulatory requirements, including those related to offshore oil and gas exploration,
radioactive sources, explosives, chemicals, hydraulic fracturing services and climate-related initiatives; the inability of
technology to meet new challenges in exploration; and other risks and uncertainties detailed in the Risk Factors
section of this Form 10-K and other filings that we make with the Securities and Exchange Commission. If one or more
of these or other risks or uncertainties materialize (or the consequences of such a development changes), or should
our underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual outcomes may vary materially from those reflected in our forward-
looking statements. Schlumberger disclaims any intention or obligation to update publicly or revise such statements,
whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
