The latest downturn is like many others that our industry has experienced, with market conditions still in flux and everyone working to find safer, and more efficient, cost-effective ways to drill and produce oil and gas. Since early 2014, the International Association of Directional Drilling has been focused on bringing together parties from virtually every side of the supply chain process (operators, service companies, manufacturers, etc.) to discuss drilling challenges and mud motor technologies and processes that will positively impact the industry and prepare us for the upturn.

Join us at our upcoming Continuous Improvement in Mud Motor Performance Mini Forum, as we share updates from the IADD mud motor continuous improvement initiative team and present the development of classification and grading systems, which will provide more transparency, traceability, uniformity and accountability for all involved with drilling in mud motors.

  • Wednesday, March 1, 2017; 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
  • Midland Country Club; 6101 N. Highway 349; Midland, Texas 79705
  • Registration: Member: $110; nonmember: $160; Pay at the door: additional $100 fee


What's in it for you?
