SPE/IADC Drilling Conference & Exhibition

For more than 30 years, the SPE/IADC Drilling Conference and Exhibition has become established as a unique confluence of the people and ideas best placed to advance our scientific understanding of drilling in oil and gas exploration and production. The event is developed by the industry for the industry and is the perfect forum to learn, network, and showcase. Alternating annually between the US and Europe, in 2019, international drilling professionals will descend on the prestigious World Forum in The Hague to exchange knowledge, examine best practices and shine a spotlight on new technologies It brings together operator companies, contractor firms, and service companies to address challenges and deliver improved performance.

IADC Comment on BSEE Blowout Preventer/Well Control Requirements

“As the owners and operators of drilling rigs and blowout preventers, IADC members have been acutely impacted by some provisions of the rule. Far from advocating scrapping the entire well control rule or other rules issued after Macondo, as some opponents of today’s proposal have argued, IADC has asked that the well control rule’s requirements be appropriately refined to increase their effectiveness while removing those provisions that add unnecessary costs without increasing safety, and it sounds like this is exactly what BSEE has done through its surgical approach in its revision of the rule."

IADC Comment on BOEM’s Successful Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale

“Today’s sale, with 159 bids from 33 bidding companies on the 148 tracts offered, reflects the oil and gas industry’s improving market conditions and a regulatory environment which is favorable to the safe and responsible development of the vast amount of U.S. offshore natural resources.

Drilling Offshore Florida Would Benefit Economy, Jobs

“The State of Florida often points to its beaches and thriving tourism industry as justification for its exclusion from drilling activity. The reality is that outdoor tourism and offshore oil and gas exploration and production can coexist, and we believe that they should. The Eastern Gulf of Mexico alone, at 64.5 million acres, is projected to contain 3.6 billion barrels of oil, which would in turn support 230,000 jobs and contribute $18 billion per year to the economy. And for Florida, the available data indicates that the recoverable resources lie 100 miles or more off the coast; far from the beaches and the view of tourists who can only see 3-12 miles out on the horizon.”

    IADC/SPE Managed Pressure Drilling & Underbalanced Operations Conference & Exhibition

IADC/SPE Managed Pressure Drilling & Underbalanced Operations Conference & Exhibition

Technologies designed to control annular pressure during drilling, inclusive of Underbalanced Drilling, Managed Pressure Drilling and Dual Gradient Drilling are being used in many forms around the world. UBD continues to maximize reservoir performance, while MPD techniques spanning onshore performance drilling and offshore deep and shallow water prospects serve to enhance drilling safety and minimize NPT. Once considered a futuristic technology, DGD is now a reality with numerous wells drilled, and many exciting prospects on the horizon. New applications of these drilling practices take place every year, and their frequency continues to grow. This conference is a world recognized forum to help the energy industry better understand the technology and the effective, safe utilization of the various applications of UBD, MPD and DGD.
