Schlumberger Incident History

Schlumberger's accident history includes a fire, various environmental violations, and the most disastrous offshore oil spill in United States history.

Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill

On the morning of April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig caught on fire. This caused a massive leak from the well as the rig sank into the Gulf of Mexico over a two-day period. Schlumberger originally declined involvement in work on the rig, but later came out with a statement that crews had been instructed to return to their home base in Louisiana. The explosion did not occur until 10 pm on the night after the Schlumberger crew had departed.

Schlumberger denied having carried out the mud logging, however, it had acquired a French company months earlier that did perform the mud logging on the Deepwater Horizon. Mud logging data is essential because it can tell organizations how much oil is present at sites and how much it will cost to exploit it. Schlumberger failed to run the Cement Bond Log (CBL) on the day of the explosion, and crews were evacuated on Schlumberger’ s dime via helicopter on that morning since there were no remaining transports leaving the rig that day.

Ocean Guardian Fire

In August 2007, Diamond Offshore drilling reported its semi-submersible rig, the Ocean Guardian, caught fire in its engine room. Fortunately, there were no injuries on board and all personnel were accounted for.

Radioactive Sources

In 2006, a radioactive cannister that had been imported to Australia by Schlumberger was recovered in the desert after being lost off a trailer contracted by one of Schlumberger’s transportation partners. That same year, Schlumberger paid federal and state agencies $11.8 million for polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) released into the environment over the span of 32 years by the land’s previous owner, Sangamo-Weston. In 2010, Schlumberger was fined $412,000 for losing a radioactive source on the Ensco 101 drilling rig.
