Maximizing Horizontal Drilling Efficiency Congress North America 2018

American Business Conferences' flagship Horizontal Drilling North America Congress returns to Houston this May (15, 16 & 17), with a new and improved agenda, more technical than all previous years. Delivering performance-based case studies and discussions led by from North America's major E&Ps, as well as quick and dynamic mid-sized operators, the 2018 event gives you the chance to learn best practices to execute BHA Design, implement new directional drilling technologies, real-time data analytics & more, as horizontal wells get deeper and longer.

'This conference has been a great opportunity to network and kick around strategies to drilling challenges' - Drilling Engineer, Pioneer Natural Resources

'It was great to hear what other operators were doing in the Permian Basin ' - Senior Drilling Superintendent, BHP

>> With an agenda and speaker line-up like none other, the 2018 event will raise the bar on every level imaginable.

  • Fully-Loaded, Technical Agenda Spanning Over 3 Days > Greater focus on driving drilling efficiencies, controlling costs, reducing non-productive time & achieving the optimal lateral length
  • More Details On What's Really Driving Drilling Performance & Efficiency : Real information on what operators tested, which practices were applied, what results they got and how it's helped them drive results
  • With no grey areas and no stones left unturned, speakers will deliver real-world case studies and practical insight on the hottest, most challenging horizontal drilling topics.

Pre-Conference Workshops: Tuesday May 15, 2018

  • Morning Workshop : Using Rotary Steerable Systems To Maximize Drilling Performance
  • Afternoon Workshop : Applying Innovative Downhole Drilling Tools To Maximize ROP

Two Day Conference: Wednesday & Thursday, May 16 & 17, 2018

Day 1 Focus : Formation-Specific Drilling Practices, Cost Control Strategies & BHA Designs To Extend Laterals As Much As Possible

Day 2 Focus : Innovative Direction Drilling Technologies, Including Rotary Steerable Systems & Geosteering, Real-Time Data Analytics Hole Cleaning Methodologies + Learn How To Automate Drilling Systems And Processes To Reduce NPT

Multiple Registration Options | Make Sure You Don't Miss Out

+ Subsidized E&P Registration Rates      + Group Discounts For E&Ps & Vendors     
+ Sponsorship & Exhibition Options         + Fully Interactive Live Stream Option

I look forward to welcoming you to Houston in May, 2018.
