A Sustainable Advantage

For the E&P industry to remain a reliable supplier of safe and cost-effective energy while meeting high environmental standards, the workforce employed and technology deployed must support continual and sustainable performance improvement to enable responsible stewardship of hydrocarbon resources. Schlumberger, with the largest and most innovative technology portfolio in the industry, enjoys significant strength in the diversity and capability of its workforce. This has taken more than 40 years to develop through a unique approach to recruiting and training, as well as to career and leadership development. This approach provides a sustainable advantage that is exceedingly difficult to replicate.

In developing talented people and innovative technology, Schlumberger believes that no single culture holds a lock on creativity. Working in more than 85 countries—many of them for more than 70 years—and employing people of over 140 nationalities provides a unique culture that is global in outlook yet local in practice. Many of the consequences of what we do, in whichever country we work, have an impact both on the industry and on the country. While helping customers produce oil and gas more efficiently, we can positively affect capacity building, economic development, and social investment. All sustainability is local, and our geographical footprint offers many opportunities to improve performance.
