HOUSTON -- Schlumberger has expanded the role of its global real-time organization. Now reporting directly to Operations, the organization will coordinate the application of real-time capabilities through a broader range of the company's oilfield services.
"The last several years have provided substantial proof of our ability to add value with real-time technology," says Satish Pai, Schlumberger VP of operations. "Now the challenge is to spread our real-time know-how to further improve service quality performance and deliver our expertise to customers in spite of the skill shortages affecting our industry."
Schlumberger has built and implemented 35 internal and 15 client-based Operation Support Centers (OSCs) in operational hotspots around the world. Continuing efforts will focus on fulfilling connectivity and infrastructure requirements throughout the company, the development of a strategy to better handle data transmission and compatibility issues with customer networks, and the definition and implementation of standardized workflows across the technology groups.
