Over the years, leading oil and gas organisations have benefited from participating at the SPE/IADC Middle East Drilling Technology Conference and Exhibition (MEDT) as the event provides an unprecedented platform for major players and industry experts from around the globe to share their latest technologies, techniques, and expand their current knowledge base. MEDT facilitates in technology transfer, exhibiting developments and technological advancements, encouraging networking opportunities, and expanding business prospects.
Unconventional plays, including shales, tight gas, geothermal and more are the globe’s best option for economic energy, in a world of otherwise scarce and more costly resources. Shales in North America have proven so prolific that their development is reshaping the global oil market, and produced a bonanza of natural gas. These technologies and methods are being exported around the world, and Eastern Europe is an extremely promising market. However, challenges exist. IADC Critical Issues for Unconventionals Europe 2013 will examine the technical, environmental, logistical, and health and safety aspects of drilling & completing shale formations in Europe, and the influence of unconventional development around the world.
