Abstracts invited for 30 June IADC DEC Tech Forum: Geothermal Drilling Challenges
The IADC Drilling Engineers Committee will hold its Q2 Technology Forum on 30 June under the theme “Geothermal Drilling Challenges.”
While the idea of drilling for geothermal has been around for some time, and some work has been done in that area, increasing concern for climate change and the associated increasing interest in clean, renewable energy sources as an alternative to petroleum, especially for power generation, has brought geothermal drilling to the forefront. Universities, government think tanks and private companies are all involved in geothermal drilling projects.
What special drilling concerns come with that application? What advances in technology are required for it to achieve its full potential? How can the existing talent pool and equipment be adapted to exploit this opportunity? This Technology Forum will explore the answers to these questions and more.

Deadline for submission is 21 May.
