Schlumberger measurements as well as provide sub-surface consulting services.
In her last position, from mid-2012 she was VP of Sustaining Engineering, in
charge of a global organization supporting all Schlumberger commercial
products and technologies.

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: "Sophie has extensive experience in the
Oil Services industry, a strong international profile and considerable
