DSATS/ART Symposium

DSATS (SPE’s Drilling Systems Automation Technical Section) and ART (IADC’s Advanced Rig Technology Committee) are holding a half-day symposium on Monday, 2 March, to highlight the latest success stories, as well as a few lessons learned, in the broad area of Drilling Systems Automation.

The symposium will have two parts. In the first part, David Reid (SPE’s Director for Drilling) will open up the event with his vision how to take Drilling Automation to the next phase. Darryl Fett (Total) will give an update on the work going on in the area of Interoperability, and Paul Pastusek (Exxon) will give us an overview of Exxon's digital strategy.

The second part will provide an opportunity to all those working and investing in Drilling Automation to present their case about the benefits they realize for themselves or for their clients. The focus will be on technology advances, as well as value creation. Presenters will include operators, service providers, and drilling contractors. Fifteen companies have signed-up already, a few more spots are still available.

Space is limited. Register early to reserve your spot and take advantage of early rates.
