Gazprom Neft and Schlumberger made an agreement on technological cooperation in well logging on March 25.
The document was signed by Vadim Yakovlev, First Deputy CEO, Gazprom Neft, and Sergey Slyusenko, managing director, Gazpromneft-Noyabrskneftegazgeofizika and Gokhan Saygi, president of Schlumberger RCA.

The parties will join the expert potential of Schlumberger and hands-on experience of Gazpromneft-Noyabrskneftegazgeofizika (Gazpromneft-NNGGF, a Gazprom Neft subsidiary) and the knowledge of Gazprom Neft R&D centers to integrate the latest logging technologies into the expert geophysics company.
Schlumberger will provide engineering support to its partners and train staff of the operating units of the company
“Gazprom Neft is committed to developing its scientific, intellectual, staffing and technological capabilities, supporting a collaborative ecosystem and building an inclusive innovation-focused environment,” Vadim Yakovlev, Gazprom Neft first deputy CEO, said.
