Authorization and Accountability

The IADC Board of Directors approved the formation of a Technical Publications Committee in 2005. The IADC Technical Publications Committee is to be headed by the Chairman (initially Leon Robinson), who reports to the IADC Board of Directors.

Time Frame, Meetings

The IADC Technical Publications Committee activities are ongoing until completion of the entire multi-volume IADC Drilling Series. The full IADC Technical Publications Committee meets quarterly, and smaller groups may meet in person as needed or via e-mail and conference calls.  Annual Meetings will be held in South Padre Island on or about the week after Labor Day.

For more information please Contact the IADC Technical Publications Committee.

A member appointed by the Chairman of IADC will chair the Technical Publications Committee. The Committee Chairman may at his discretion appoint a reasonable number of Committee Vice-Chairmen to oversee specific disciplines or issues (e.g., onshore/offshore safety issues, environmental practices, specific regulatory issues, etc.)

General meetings are open to participants from all categories of IADC membership. The Chairman may invite non-members to attend when it furthers the interests of the Committee. At the discretion of the Chairman and IADC staff, the meeting or portions of the meeting may be exclusively reserved for drilling contractor members. Meetings will be held at such times and locations as may be selected by the Chairman with the advice of the Committee.
