DAMMAM, Saudi ArabiaSchlumberger has inaugurated its new regional Center for Reliability and Efficiency (CRE) in Saudi Arabia.

This will be used for maintenance and servicing of equipment including drilling tools and hydraulic fracturing pumps.

It also features large high-pressure wash bays that can handle repairs of equipment ranging from mud shakers to coiled tubing units.

The investment is linked to Saudi Aramco’s In-Kingdom Total Value Add (IKTVA) program, intended to increase investment and boost job creation and workforce development in the country.

Schlumberger’s 178,000-sq m (1.92 million-sq ft) center is said to be the largest and most modern CRE. It will employ more than 450 specialist/technically qualified Saudi employees when it reaches full capacity.
