Meeting Introduction:

Please can you help us with suggestions for presentations and/or names of experts in this area who we can approach for the Q123 meeting, both from your company, but also from the industry generally.

Meeting Introduction:
The drilling industry is often required to access reserves that require complex and highly specialised technology and skills. This includes drilling wells in deeper water, to greater step outs and with more aggressive, short radius wellpaths. Our innovative industry always finds ways of meeting these challenges safely and with ever increasing focus on performance and sustainability. In this session, the focus will be on some of these ‘special drilling methods. Subjects to be explored could include:

· Extended reach drilling
· Ultra short radius drilling
· Ultra deepwater
· HPHT Drilling
· Next generation well architectures
· Technology for revitalising old fields
· Multilaterals
· Depleted reservoir drilling
