Horizontal Drilling Efficiency USA 2019: Returns To Houston In May

With the continued push for longer laterals, irrespective of acreage position, size and budget, operators everywhere are talking about achieving greater gains in drilling efficiencies. Operators are also recognizing that there is always going to be a premium on how long, how fast and how safe they can drill - with the cost continuing to be a key factor driving decisions.

With end goals including but not limited to...

  • Trying to drill the well fast and at the lowest cost possible
  • Being able to get wells online effectively and timely
  • Trying to get the lowest unit price for disruptive technologies
  • Minimize flat stops on critical paths
  • Get more production out of the ground

And knowing no two basins are created alike, the Horizontal Drilling Efficiency USA 2019 congress returns to Houston in May, and gives attendees the chances to leverage the experience of drilling professionals who are bettering their drilling practices to drive those operational efficiencies in West Texas, Rockies, Appalachian and Mid-Continent shale plays.

'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

TECHNICAL CONFERENCE DAY 1: TUESDAY, MAY 21

  • Driving drilling efficiencies through the continued push for longer laterals and improvements in high-end disruptive technologies while focusing controlling costs
  • Case studies & discussion on day one will focus on drilling best practices and performance records of new and improved technologies including RSS and Motors, and Geosteering.

TECHNICAL CONFERENCE DAY 2: WEDNESDAY, MAY 22

  • Improved BHA configurations to achieve greater efficiencies, plusautomation and drilling data analytics and pad & batch drilling strategies
  • Day two will also look at strategies for effectively managing drilling challenges includingdownhole vibrations, hole cleaning, casing and cementing
