The scope and role of Schlumberger at TORINO 2006

The organizing committee for the
Beijing Olympic Games, now known as BOCOG, has been
officially formed and its core management team is
in place. Though numbering only about fifty people

A Chinese delegation visited Schlumberger
installations in Salt Lake City and were briefed on

as their goal is to show to the world the new face

Our on-site involvement is scheduled
to start during 2003. More news will appear here as
the project moves forward.
