Expert bodies such as the International Energy Agency have identified means for carbon dioxide emissions reduction—including energy efficiency, greater use of renewable energies and nuclear power, and geological carbon capture and storage.

To help address environmental concerns with concrete actions, Schlumberger is directing its technology, innovation, and knowledge—both as a provider of solutions and in managing its own greenhouse gas footprint. Schlumberger Carbon Services, which was formed in 2005, is a leading player in carbon capture and storage efforts, with experience in more than 30 pilot projects worldwide. Also, in 2009, Schlumberger directed significant effort at measuring greenhouse gas emissions, with an additional focus on wider environmental issues, including groundwater protection.

As a technology leader in oil and gas exploration and production, Schlumberger believes that growing concerns over levels of anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions require complementary mechanisms to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations. This view is linked to the certainty that fossil fuels will continue to fulfill the overwhelming majority of the world’s energy needs for decades to come.

Schlumberger naturally contributes substantially to carbon capture and storage (CCS) efforts through its measurement technologies and geosciences expertise, recognizing that, while technologies such as CCS can deliver significant contributions in the future, energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emission reduction programs represent more immediate solutions for today.

Each year, Schlumberger is focused on measuring, reporting, and reducing GHG emissions with greater clarity as more measurement data of more reliable quality become available. Since 2001, the company has submitted figures and narrative to the Carbon Disclosure Project, and in 2008, Schlumberger adopted the GHG Protocol.
