DC Magazine Hosts Latest Virtual Panel Discussion

On 26 April, Drilling Contractor hosted a live Virtual Panel Discussion (VPD) titled “Opportunities and Challenges to Improve Integration and Efficiency Among Operators, Drilling Contractors and Service Companies.” 

In this Virtual Panel Discussion:

As the offshore rig market continues to heat up after a multi-year down cycle, companies are facing myriad challenges around project deliveries, rig mobilizations and startups, supply chains, and workforce recruiting and retention. At the same time, an evolution is ongoing around how operators, drilling contractors and service companies work together. Especially as operators seek to work with fewer vendors, the role of the drilling contractor is rapidly changing, to serve not simply as a rig provider but the central focal point of multiple service deliveries at the wellsite. What are the challenges each stakeholder faces in this evolution, and how can they work together amid this market shift to maximize opportunities for value creation and efficiency improvements?

These topics were explored in Drilling Contractors latest VPD, which was moderated by the magazine’s Vice President, Editor & Publisher, Linda Hsieh. Panelists included Alexander Concha, Chris Scarborough and Jean-Paul Buisine
