Students and staff at the Mewbourne College of Earth and Energy, Oklahoma, experienced hands-on the latest Schlumberger technology when a logging unit truck rolled into campus last week.

Several Schlumberger staff, including Bob Davis, the Schlumberger Ambassador for the University, demonstrated the workings of the ThruBit logging tools to the students. They explained how this innovative logging services technology helps clients to obtain high-quality data through the drill bit while drilling in tough logging environments; a revolutionary development in this area of data acquisition.

Students were able to see the technology up close, as well as walk around in the logging unit truck to see the setup inside, where the data recorded by the tools downhole is processed. In addition, students from the log interpretation class scrutinized the source of the sonic, neutron, density, and resistivity data they are learning about in class. Many students commented about how much easier it was to understand what they were interpreting now that they could connect the data to the tools that acquire it.

Cody Carter, Schlumberger University Relations and Recruiting Leader, said the event was a great success: "As recruiters, we jump at the chance to give students the opportunity to have hands-on experience with the tools and services we provide our clients. The students at OU were able to see first-hand one of the many possible career opportunities that are available with Schlumberger. We also hope these types of events will reinforce our commitment to the students and faculty at the University of Oklahoma and College of Earth and Energy."

A special thanks to Dr. Rai for hosting the event and to all of the students who attended!
