Reshaping for a Smart and Sustainable Future

Since 1996, the IADC/SPE Asia Pacific Drilling Technology Conference and Exhibition has established itself as the region’s leading drilling event. Rotating biennially within Asia Pacific, it provides the opportunity for operators, suppliers, contractors, and service company professionals to meet, discuss, evaluate, and share ideas to advance drilling operations, promote solutions to common problems, and improve overall efficiency and profitability.

“Since the last event held in Thailand in 2014, the industry has altered significantly. Evolving challenges such as oil price volatility, the “big crew change”, and digital disruption, require new approaches in applying business models and technologies to achieve cost and operational efficiencies smartly and sustainably, whilst meeting stakeholder expectations to preserve the core business and, at the same time, stimulate progress.

This conference will explore challenges, successes, and strategies to create a fit-for-purpose set of tools, systems, models, technologies and capabilities that will reshape the industry for a smart and sustainable future.”
