    We build custom face plates for a company which in turn installs them on equipment for Schlumberger. They have asked that this name be put on the plates but I have yet to find this style.

    Have any idea what font this maybe?

    I checked that one rep but the down stroke on the "c" seemed to come down too far.

    According to my database:

    95.5% match to Helvetica Extra Compressed (Adobe Version)
    95.1% match to Swiss 911 Extra Compressed (Bitstream)
    94.7% match to Helvetica Extra Compressed (Linotype Version)

    All of which means that any of these fonts should work. Small variations in percentage get discounted. For example, the Adobe and Linotype versions are known to be identical because Adobe licenses their version from Linotype.
