For more than 30 years, the SPE/IADC International Drilling Conference and Exhibition has become established as a unique confluence of the people and ideas best placed to advance our scientific understanding of drilling in oil and gas exploration and production. The event is developed by the industry for the industry and is the perfect forum to learn, network, and showcase. 

Alternating annually between the US and Europe, in 2019, international drilling professionals will descend on the prestigious World Forum in The Hague to exchange knowledge, examine best practices and shine a spotlight on new technologies

It brings together operator companies, contractor firms, and service companies to address challenges and deliver improved performance.
