OES Asset Integrity Management last week attended IADC Drilling Africa Conference and Exhibition held at the Altis Grand Hotel in Lisbon.
The conference discussed how the African oil & gas industry is dealing with the fast-paced market changes in the region.
IADC Drilling Africa 2018 explored all aspects of drilling operations in this vital region, including ultra-deepwater, sub-salt, emerging markets, HPHT, re-entry drilling for gas redevelopment, underbalanced and managed pressure operations, community development, training and competency, workforce development, logistics and security.
Adam Gibson, OES Strategic Business Director for Europe & Africa said of the event, “A very positive outlook for Africa and the industry. The recent downturn has led to innovative thinking, research and development to bring cost savings throughout the supply chain. Investment in new cost-efficient technologies can see this region massively reduce operating costs to secure its long term profitable future”
