The International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) has launched the “Returning Military Campaign” to encourage homecoming military personnel to begin careers in the oil and gas drilling industry. Through its Career Connection initiative, IADC developed the campaign to orchestrate job fairs at military bases where soldiers are transitioning back to civilian life. The organization is teaming up with the Ft. Hood Army Career Alumni Program (ACAP) to hold its first exclusive returning military job fair at Ft. Hood, Texas, in January 2008. Sixteen of the drilling industry’s land and offshore companies will participate. Human resource recruiters, many of them ex-military, will discuss with soldiers the job opportunities available now and the advantages of a career in the drilling industry. Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS) has acquired exclusive worldwide rights to patented electromagnetic technology developed by KMS Technologies, of Houston. The KMS technology offers an alternative to EMGS’s methodologies in shallow-water applications, significantly broadening the company’s product offerings.
