The communication, the response time, the willingness to even take a meeting. Many times projects like this start out in code names, but even before they knew who the company was, they were extremely focused… In comparison to other projects our firm has worked on, it was exceptionally quick.” Michael Lateur, director at New York-based Duff and Phelps, the firm Schlumberger hired to oversee the site selection.
