The First Ever Horizontal Drilling U.S. Shale & Tight Oil Plays 2013 Is Now Coming To Houston

…to bring together executives and drilling experts from leading operators across the US to provide solutions to the major strategic and technical drilling issues being faced nationally in shale gas and tight oil plays with the aim of driving down costs and time of operations. Through the eyes of the driller, representatives from the major US plays will come together to discuss how maximum drilling efficiencies are being reached and how these could be transferred between plays. Learning topics include:

LATERAL LENGTH : Evaluating the economics of horizontal drilling to assess when drilling a longer lateral with more stages will yield a commercial rate of return

BUILDING THE CURVE : Exploring how to increase ROP on the build section to improve curve drilling efficiency

TORQUE & DRAG : Examining how torque and drag modeling can be utilized to increase ROP and reduce drilling costs

DRILLING FLUIDS : Assessing the costs and effectiveness of muds in relation to cleaning the hole, reducing torque and drag, maintaining well control and stability and ultimately, facilitating high levels of production

ROTARY STEERABLE : Discussing the efficiency of rotary steerable tools in the build and lateral sections along with failure rates and costs to establish whether they are worth the added expenditure

CEMENTING : Optimizing the application of cement to improve wellbore integrity and protect ground water at minimal costs

REGULATIONS : Examining current and future ground water protection and annulus pressure regulations to establish possible impacts on operations
