The integrated project scope encompasses drilling rigs and technologies and services, including drill bits, measurement while drilling (MWD) and logging while drilling (LWD), drilling fluids, cementing, and completing wells.
Schlumberger will leverage digital solutions to enhance integrated drilling performance, including the DrillOps* on-target well delivery solution which uses data analysis, learning systems and automation to execute a digital well plan, improving drilling efficiency, consistency and performance.
“This contract award represents the continuation of an ongoing collaboration with Saudi Aramco,” said Tarek Rizk, MENA president, Schlumberger.
“Through our committed teams, differentiated technology, and integrated drilling and well construction services we will work closely with Saudi Aramco on well delivery and set a new performance benchmark.”
This award represents a significant endorsement of Schlumberger’s fit-for-basin technology and domain expertise for gas well development in the region.
TotalEnergies taps Schlumberger for its Tilenga onshore oil development in Uganda
This award also comes just a few weeks since Schlumberger was awarded an extensive contract for drilling, completions and production services by TotalEnergies for its Tilenga onshore oil development in Uganda.
The scope of the contract includes the provision of directional drilling services, upper completions, lower completions, artificial lift solutions, and wellheads for the Tilenga development, which comprises six fields with up to 426 wells, which will be developed across 31 wellpads.
“The Tilenga project is strategically significant to accelerated economic growth in Uganda. Schlumberger has committed to a comprehensive national content development plan, supporting TotalEnergies with environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives and in-country value creation,” said Wallace Pescarini, president, Offshore Atlantic, Schlumberger.
“This will be achieved through local capacity building, localization of supply chain, education development, HSE stewardship, and digital enablement.”
Drilling activities are expected to begin in Q4 2022.
