From Area Development Magazine:
“Schlumberger has been an economic driver in Louisiana for more than half a century, and the company remains a vital contributor to our state’s ‘all of the above’ approach to energy. […] This investment not only creates dozens of high-paying jobs in Lafayette, it demonstrates a commitment to the future of more than 1,000 existing energy jobs around the state. In the midst of a historic transition, Louisiana’s energy sector remains strong.” […]
“Lafayette historically has been a service and production gateway to the Gulf of Mexico, and the creation of Schlumberger’s North Gulf Coast Operations Hub reflects that legacy and the ongoing contributions to the region’s overall economy by the energy sector. […] Recent global concerns have demonstrated the importance of domestic production. Lafayette and Acadiana are proud to remain a vital player in that sphere.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
