The Q1 2018 DEC Technology Forum will address what is new or different about drilling the unconventional resource plays. The vast majority of the current drilling in the US today is being done in the unconventional resource plays, often called Shale Plays. This activity has led to re-examination and modification of how we do many things. Pad drilling, batch drilling, sim-ops and offline activities are a few things that are being developed and expanded upon to make drilling more of a manufacturing process. Increased well density and multistage frack jobs have required increased accuracy and precision in well placement. Reservoir characteristics and economics have required revisiting the approaches to well control, kick tolerance and casing programs. Long laterals and multistage frac jobs present new demands on casing and cement jobs. The forum will be an opportunity to discuss as many of these or other similar topics as possible with some of the people actively engaged in these activities.

DEC encourages contributions from industry for possible presentations at the forum. If you have an idea for a possible presentation, contact DEC Chairman Dennis Moore (ddmoore@marathonoil.com), Robert Estes (robert.estes@halliburton.com), Keith Lynch (Keith.W.Lynch@conocophillips.com), or Mike Killalea (mike.killalea@iadc.org).

The Q1 DEC Technology Forum is graciously hosted by Wild Well Control, and will convene at WWC’s facility at 2202 Oil Center Court, Houston, TX 77073.

The event will begin at 08.00 with coffee and networking, with the business program kicking off at 08.30. The forum will adjourn at lunch time, with a light lunch provided courtesy of WWC.

Please note that the agenda will be posted soon!
