This is a bit dated, but I was on a project in 2007-08 in a large overseas gas field for one of the majors. We had drilled 12 wells on an offshore platform, did the completions and the well testing. SLB wireline had the contract to do the perforating and downhole instrumentation and SLB well services had the contract for the well testing package. This oil company chose to use CLB over SLB to do the well fluids and gas sampling and analysis. This was a big project and the testing lasted almost a year, so CLB must have brought something to the table SLB could not compete against.
This was the first I had heard of CLB. I looked into them but never bought any, not sure why.
Still kicking myself about that.

Regards
drab
