Welcome Message from the Chair

Dear Colleague,

I am honored that I was asked to serve as the chairperson for the 2016 IADC/SPE Drilling Conference, which will be held 1 – 3 March, 2016 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth Texas.

Our industry is a bit like riding a roller coaster:  full of ups and downs, but exciting as heck!  As we live through one of the troughs, the importance of supporting each other through sharing of industry-developed solutions have never been greater, and the topics to be discussed never more diverse.

What will be presented in the 2016 IADC/SPE Drilling Conference will affect the future of almost every aspect of our business including safety, profitability, compliance, operational excellence, emerging technologies and human factors.  The future will start here.

The IADC/SPE Drilling Conference is the world’s premier drilling event technology sharing —I encourage you and your colleagues to participate in this important event.
