In today’s competitive global economy, we know that strong relationships with our suppliers
are more important than ever to our ability to meet our own and our customers’ needs.
Our preferred suppliers are those that work with us in a professional, ethical, competitive,
and cost-effective manner consistent with Schlumberger policies, procedures, and business
objectives. We believe this type of supplier relationship encourages use of supply chain best
practices and adds value for all involved in the process.
In evaluating potential suppliers, Schlumberger considers delivery price, reliability of
supplier, operational costs, and after-sales support. We procure goods and services only
from financially stable, technically qualified, and reliable sources.
