Schlumberger's San Antonio office will likely come not long after Halliburton's office is announced. The company's Eagle Ford Shale office will not rival the size of Halliburton's, but Schlumberger has a major presence the surrounding areas. Still good news for San Antonio.
Fresh off Thursday's revelation that Halliburton Co. is looking to build a "supersite" in the San Antonio area, a county official disclosed that another heavy hitter in oil services wants a piece of the action.
Schlumberger, the world's largest oil field services company, with offices in Houston, Paris and The Hague, Netherlands, is proposing to establish a site in south Bexar County, said David Marquez, executive director of Bexar County's economic development department.
He said Schlumberger's operation would not be as large as what Halliburton is considering, "but it's still significant and still in the southern part of the county."
Marquez declined to say more about what Schlumberger is considering. Schlumberger did not return a call seeking comment.
