The article describes improvement of the methodical approach to the comparative evaluation of technologies in oilfield services in interaction between oil producing and service companies under conditions of market economy. Technology as a component of an oilfield development project is underestimated by subsoil users. The multi-criteria approach is proposed for the decision-making on a technology and its provider in oilfield services. Selection of oilfield services segments is justified, and the general and partial criteria in these segments are systematized. It is required to develop an algorithm of the differentiated approach to selecting technologies in oilfield services. This study has generalized the experience of using opinions of experts in various specialized and non-specialized activities, in particle, in oilfield development, well drilling, machine engineering, design and estimate documentation, as well as in the areas of science— higher mathematics, applied sociology and psychology. The conclusion drawn from the implemented analysis points at the significance of the general and partial criteria of technologies. The further research into the specified range of problems is defined.
