The Drilling Study Group will hold its Annual Drilling Symposium on April 22, 2009 at the Petroleum Club. This day-long, open forum event assembles industry recognized drilling experts from the Operators along with the leading technologists from the Service companies to discuss the critical drilling challenges associated with hard to drill formations. 

 

Topics to include:
·         Techniques for increasing drilling efficiency in shale plays
·         New techniques for directional drilling
·         Salt drilling
·         Mitigating drilling dynamics and vibration
·         Dealing with hard stringers and varying lithologies
·         Increasing ROP in high temperature/high pressure (HT/HP) environments

 

The morning session will consist of operator presentations on the above topics. After lunch, service companies will have a chance to introduce some of the new technologies they are deploying to address the challenges discussed in the morning session.
