These segments offer a broad array of products and services to upstream
oil and gas customers worldwide, ranging from integrated software and
services to drilling tools, logging, and perforating technology, from

pressure pumping services.

The company is headquartered in Houston, Texas, where its Principal
Executive Office resides, and in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. With the
recent addition of a corporate headquarters office in Dubai, they join the
