Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
The presentation referred to above contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws
that is, statements about the future, not about past events. Such statements often contain words such as expect, may, believe, plan, estimate, intend, anticipate,
should, could, will, see, likely, and other similar words.
statements address matters that are, to varying degrees, uncertain, such as statements about our financial and performance targets and other forecasts or expectations regarding business outlook; growth for Schlumberger as a whole and for each of its
segments (and for specified products or geographic areas within each segment); oil and natural gas demand and production growth; oil and natural gas prices; improvements in operating procedures and technology, including our transformation program;
capital expenditures by Schlumberger and the oil and gas industry; the business strategies of Schlumbergers customers; the success of Schlumbergers SPM projects, joint ventures and alliances; future global economic conditions; and future
results of operations. These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, global economic conditions; changes in exploration and production spending by Schlumbergers customers and changes in the level of
oil and natural gas exploration and development; general economic, political and business conditions in key regions of the world; foreign currency risk; pricing pressure; weather and seasonal factors; operational modifications, delays or
cancellations; production declines; changes in government regulations and regulatory requirements, including those related to offshore oil and gas exploration, radioactive sources, explosives, chemicals, hydraulic fracturing services and
climate-related initiatives; the inability of technology to meet new challenges in exploration; the inability to retain key employees;; and other risks and uncertainties detailed in our most recent Forms 10-K,
10-Q, and 8-K filed with or furnished to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. If one or more of these or other risks or uncertainties materialize (or the
consequences of such a development changes), or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual outcomes may vary materially from those reflected in our forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of
the attached presentation, and Schlumberger disclaims any intention or obligation to update publicly or revise such statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
