Schlumberger acquires TerraTek

Data and Consulting Services unit to create geomechanical center of excellence in Salt Lake City.

Schlumberger has acquired geomechanics specialist TerraTek of Salt Lake City. TerraTek provides multidisciplinary expertise in geosciences and engineering in the fields of unconventional gas, drilling performance, reservoir studies and core log integration.


DCS president Chris Hopkins said, ‘By integrating TerraTek’s knowledge of applied geomechanics core evaluation with our expertise in petrophysics and geomechanics, we will enhance the value of our services, particularly in the unconventional gas reservoirs that will produce a greater proportion of future world supply.

Center of Excellence

TerraTek’s 80-strong staff will form the core of a new Geomechanics Laboratory Center of Excellence for Schlumberger’s Data and Consulting Services (DCS) unit. TerraTek CEO Sidney Green added, ‘This is a significant step for our employees and our customers. As part of the DCS group, our measurements and analysis of rock properties can leverage the industry’s leading petrophysical technologies as well as provide substantial knowledge to further develop advanced reservoir solutions.’
