Drilling developments ///

2002 IADC/SPE Drilling Conference. This important annual event moved to its every-other-year presence in the U.S. – following last year’s program in Amsterdam – with a gathering of 1,400 attendees. Held in the impressive Hyatt Regency Hotel complex in Dallas, February 26 – 28, the event included more than 90 technical paper presentations, and exhibits featuring 92 companies. The paper presentations were timely and worthwhile, featuring 26 sessions on key drilling topics, such as: underbalanced drilling, well control and deep water, plus specific engineering / design topics like directional drilling, coiled tubing, bit technology and zonal isolation. Management/HSE and case history reviews presented a lot of "lessons learned."
