OSC-SIML was formed in February 2003 as a joint venture between Oilfields Supply Center Limited and Smith International (North Sea) Limited. The Company’s objective was to manufacture oilfield equipment primarily in support of Smith International’s Middle East and North Africa (MENA regions) although this geographic area expanded as the manufacturing capabilities grew.

OSC-SIML continued as a joint venture until April 2014 when Schlumberger (who had a couple of years earlier acquired Smith international, Inc.,) decided to exit the manufacturing venture which resulted in Oilfields Supply Center Limited then acquiring 100% of the company.
