SLB Opens New Regional Office in Lagos

Global technology company, SLB (formerly known as Schlumberger), has formally opened its new West Africa regional office in Lagos, Nigeria. The firm unveiled a new brand identity focused on energy innovation and decarbonization in October 2022 to meet the world's energy demands today and pave the way for the energy transition. This new identity is reflected in the new West Africa headquarters, which will maximise employee experience and provide a sustainable business environment for all stakeholders.

Its contemporary design embraces the company's aggressive sustainability vision by incorporating daylight harvesting, interactive and collaborative hotspots for employees, disability access, and other interesting aspects that highlight the company's evolving identity and culture.

Delivering his speech at the official opening in Lagos, Sopiribo Ideriah, managing director for SLB in West African countries, said,” As a technology leader, our unmatched market breadth, differentiated performance, and unique portfolio of products and service, has always positioned us for growth and advancement in the energy industry. All of this is owed to our people, who are the backbone of our organization. I would like to thank all SLB staff – past and present – for their commitment and passion in delivering high-quality services to our customers.”

The ceremony coincided with the celebration of the 70th Anniversary of SLB’s presence in Nigeria. “For seven decades, SLB has worked in Nigeria as a local company.  In 1952, SLB logged Nigeria's first commercial oil well in Oloibiri, Bayelsa State, and has since logged several other historic wells in the country.  Our ability to continuously drive technology innovation has led to the development of new oilfield technologies that enhance our customers’ operational performance, while maintaining the highest standards in HSE, ultimately delivering value to all our stakeholders. Investing in local socio-economic projects and developing local talent through our borderless career culture, we have significantly contributed to the capacity development of Nigeria and are confident that we will continue to do business in ways that benefit our people, society, and the country.” Ideriah added.

Also speaking at the event, Wallace Pescarini, president of the Offshore Atlantic Basin at SLB, said “I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to our various stakeholders for their support over the years, including our clients, suppliers, contractors, and other business partners. We are thrilled to live our purpose of creating amazing technology to unlock access to energy for the benefit of all and could not have achieved this without your trust. As we look to the future and its evolving energy landscape, we remain committed to creating value for our customers and key stakeholders in Nigeria.”

Following the opening of its regional head office, SLB hosted key stakeholders at a dinner ceremony where the company’s historic past and innovative present were recognized and celebrated.
