Schlumberger

WITH THE PRICE OF oil near historic highs, energy companies are willing to invest big money to find new fields and rework old ones. No outfit benefits more than Schlumberger, the leading oil services provider. The New York-based company was global long before the concept was in vogue, and now has 58,000 employees of 140- plus nationalities working in more than 80 countries. That footprint, and stateof- the-art technology, is key as new oil is found in increasingly deep water and remote areas. It may not be glamorous work, but shares have tripled since 2002, and demand for Schlumberger’s expertise is steady.
