Schlumberger: Our 2013 Sustainability Award winner in Nigeria


Schlumberger, with 2012 revenues approaching a staggering $42 billion, employs over 120,000 people and is the leading technology, project management and solutions provider to the global oil and gas industry.

The Judging Panel wishes to honour SEED, the Company’s Excellence in Education Development initiative and without any hesitation names Schlumberger winner of the 2013 Sustainability Award in Nigeria.

The SEED programme reflects Schlumberger’s role as a knowledge-based company and allows it to bring first-class science, health and safety education to host communities.

Schlumberger Nigeria has racked up a great many achievements in a relatively short time.  There have been strong and successful efforts to promote science education. The panel was delighted to note that 22 schools are this year competing in a science project challenge with a grand finale scheduled for November. There are also ambitious plans to almost triple the number of schools involved as of 2014.

Schlumberger, Nigeria, is also doing a great deal to assist in teacher-retraining programmes, bringing into play the most modern teaching methods. The company collaborates with the Nigerian Academy of Sciences and other outside bodies to create maximum awareness of the need for top class education in the sciences.
