Houston, Texas (12 April 2016) – The International Association of Drilling Contractors is hosting today an “IADC Onshore Drilling 101” Lunch and Learn. The event, held in the House Natural Resources Committee Room 1334 at noon, will detail the basics of drilling and hydraulic fracturing, along with the positive impacts on the US economy.
“The opportunity to educate individuals creating our nation’s energy laws and regulatory policy is something IADC is proud to do. IADC members believe that by providing at least a base level of understanding of how the industry functions and operates, we will aid in the more knowledgeable and efficient formation of regulation and legislation that ultimately better serves the U.S. taxpayer and industry,” said Liz Craddock, IADC Vice President, Policy, Government and Regulatory Affairs. “Drilling contractors are mainly small businesses with a vital role in the upstream oil and gas industry. As such, they have a unique voice and story to tell and while in D.C., they will meet with several Senators and Members of Congress to discuss the current state of the industry, our commitment to safety and to give them a better sense of who IADC’s members are and what we do.”
IADC onshore members participating include:
Jay Minmier, President, Nomac Drilling;
Mike Garvin, Senior Vice President, Operations Support, Patterson-UTI Drilling Company;
Joey Husband, Vice President Global Operations, Nabors Drilling Solutions
Scott McKee, Contracts and Marketing Lead, Cactus Drilling Company.
