IADC committees undertake initiatives that influence safe, efficient, and environmentally sound drilling operations worldwide.

IADC provides an important environment to meet with and learn from others in the industry, many of whom are competitors, and under other circumstances, we would not have that opportunity.

About IADC Committees

IADC Committees are either Standing or Divisional.

Standing Committees are the legacy or founding committees of IADC, such as HSET and Tax. Divisional Committees have been created as the needs of our industry dictate, for a specific purpose or project, including Underbalanced Operations/Managed Pressure Drilling and Advanced Rig Technology (ART).
