Schlumberger and the Olympic Games
 

As the Worldwide Information Technology Partner and a Top Sponsor of the Olympic Games, Schlumberger was awarded the world's largest-ever IT contract for four games and eight years covering Salt Lake City in 2002; Athens in 2004; Turin in 2006; and Beijing in 2008. Our eight-year partnership with the Olympics, spanning four Games, sets a world record as the largest sports information technology contract ever awarded. We are thrilled to play such a significant role in shaping and delivering the technology that will support Olympic Games well into the future and delighted of having a satisfied customer.

Schlumberger acts as the Worldwide IT Partner providing overall IT strategy, project management, key software, information security and systems integration and is also a Top Sponsor of the Olympic Games. At the Salt Lake 2002 Winter Games, more than 300 Schlumberger people managed a vast IT system that relayed information in real time to the participants, audiences and media. The same team provided IT-enabled accreditations to the 89,000 athletes, officials, sponsors and media representatives to enable their safe and secure movement between the 78 events held across 10 sporting and 30 non-competition venues.
