Abstracts invited for 13 November IADC DEC Tech Forum on drilling contractor integrated services

As operators and contractors continually work toward improving their financial, safety, environmental and operational performance, the services provided by drilling contractors are also changing. Consolidation in the industry means that equipment and services are being provided by fewer vendors. Are we seeing the creation of a new business model with drilling contractors offering more “integrated” services to operators, such as casing running, cementing and directional drilling? Or is this just a repackaging of turnkey drilling? Can operators improve performance with these added services provided by the drilling contractor? Does this shift risk and responsibilities to the contractor but with limited reward? Does the daywork contract fit such business arrangements? If not, what are the options to consider?

Abstracts are invited for presentations to address these questions at the IADC Drilling Engineers Committee (DEC) Q4 2019 Technology Forum, under the theme of “Status and Future of the Integration of Services Provided by the Drilling Contractor.” Event will be held the morning of Wednesday, 13 November, at National Oilwell Varco, 10353 Richmond Ave, Houston, TX 77042.

The deadline for abstracts is Monday, 30 September. Click here to submit an abstract.
