Shell has awarded Schlumberger a five-year, multicountry integrated services contract for the drilling of oil and gas exploration wells on a recently commissioned deepwater rig operating in East, West and North Africa. The concept of using a highly mobile drilling rig for exploration in remote deepwater environments is enhanced by the integration of services over a reduced footprint, resulting in overall efficiency gains. In addition, the continuity of people and processes along with the application of lessons learned are key enablers for reducing operational risk and non-productive time.In the Norwegian sector of the North Sea, a total of 11 Schlumberger oilfield services contracts have been extended over the next five years with BG Norge to cover both the development of the Knarr field as well as other activities on the continental shelf. The contracts include directional drilling, measurements and logging while drilling, mud logging, wireline logging, drilling fluids management, coiled tubing, well testing, perforating, completions and cementing services.
