ABSTRACT
SchlumbergerSema, a business segment of Schlumberger Limited, and the Association of Train Operating Companies have signed an agreement for the final phase of a contract to design, build and operate the rail settlement system in Great Britain. The rail settlement system is currently one of the world's largest and most complex settlement systems, and is even larger than any of the settlement systems used by global airlines. The system to be designed by SchlumbergerSema will be capable of handling and allocating more than 3.5 billion pound in annual passenger revenue to Britain's 27 passenger train operators and is expected to be fully operational by April 1, 2003.
