Upstream innovations recognized for outstanding technological achievement

The annual E&P Special Meritorious Awards for Engineering Innovation recognize new technologies in the upstream industry that reflect excellence in technological development and demonstrate innovation in concept, design and application.

In 2018 Schlumberger technologies were awarded in four categories:

Artificial Lift

The Lift IQ production life cycle management service provides access to critical data, detects events, and offers quick and easy monitoring and troubleshooting. It provides real-time analytics and optimization combined with engineering, manufacturing, and surveillance expertise of Schlumberger with access to service centers 24 hours a day.


The StingBlock advanced stabilization conical element cutter block is the first unique-geometry cutter block with a staged gauge pad which substantially increases tool stability. The StingBlock cutter block is specifically designed to reduce lateral displacement and increase durability while improving footage and ROP in challenging drilling applications that pose a high risk of vibration to the BHA and impact damage to conventional cutter blocks.

Formation Evaluation

Pulsar multifunction spectroscopy service pairs multiple detectors with a high-output pulsed neutron generator to provide stand-alone cased hole formation evaluation and reservoir monitoring with openhole logging quality.

Intelligent Systems and Components

WellWatcher Advisor real-time intelligent completion software transforms acquired data into actionable intelligence at frequencies as high as 1 s, providing you with real-time answer products for better business decisions.
