International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) is an association dedicated to enhancing the interests of oil-and-gas and geothermal drilling contractors worldwide. Founded in 1940, IADC’s mission is to improve industry health, safety and environmental practices; advance drilling and completion technology; and champion responsible standards, practices, legislation and regulations that provide for safe, efficient and environmentally sound drilling operations worldwide. IADC is headquartered in Houston and has offices in Washington D.C., the Netherlands, Thailand, and the United Arab Emirates, as well as chapters in the UK, Brazil, Australasia, South Central Asia, Southeast Asia, the Middle East and across the United States.
Now, the tenth biennial International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) and the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Asia Pacific Drilling Technology Conference (APDT) will be held 25-27 August 2014 in Bangkok, Thailand. Under the theme “Driving Sustainable Growth Through Technology and Innovation”, the conference will focus on technological advancement and provide a vibrant platform for knowledge transfer and networking.
With many countries focussed on reducing import dependency and responding to domestic demand by developing local competencies, there are exciting opportunities in both Thailand and the Asia Pacific region to meet the need for increased energy security. PTT Exploration and Production Public Company Limited (PTTEP) is the proud Host Organisation.
