who we are

Who We Are

With a history and culture of science and innovation, we’re the world’s leading provider of reservoir characterization, drilling, production, and processing technologies to the oil and gas industry.

Working globally, we invent, design, engineer, apply, and maintain technologies that help our customers find and produce oil and gas more efficiently and safely—often in remote and challenging locations.

Founded in 1926, the company takes its name from Conrad and Marcel Schlumberger, brothers who transformed the energy industry with the revolutionary idea of using electrical measurements to map subsurface rock formations.

We employ around 100,000 people of more than 140 nationalities and work in more than 85 countries. We leverage strong local experience and work hard to attract, retain and develop diverse talent.

You will always be encouraged to grow and you will never stop learning. Join us today to help us meet the technical challenges of tomorrow’s upstream oil and gas industry.
