Casing while drilling was developed as a way to access marginal reserves and drill through trouble zones. Throughout recent years, the method has seen proven results in diverse regions from South Texas to Thailand.

The casing while drilling conference, now in it's third year, was originally created as a venue for commercialization of this innovative technology. Now that this method has reached critical adoption, the conference will focus on practical drilling problem solving and risk mitigation.

The two-day gathering will feature technical presentations surrounding drilling economics followed by six operator-led, interactive workshops exploring new techniques for drilling through hazardous conditions and reducing flat time.

Delegates will first attend a plenary session where industry experts will address:

The Economics of Mature Fields
IHS Energy

Quantitative Risk Analysis
DNV Consulting

Asset Manager Update
Anadarko, Shell EP Americas, El Paso
