Abstracts invited for November 1st IADC DEC Tech Forum, “Drilling’s Role in ESG, CCUS and Geothermal”

The role of the drilling engineer will be affected by overall emissions reductions projects and global energy transition agendas. EPA Class II injection wells for Oil and Gas production will become a larger percentage of the total wells drilled. Geothermal wells have been estimated to increase to 1,000 to 3,000 wells drilled per year in the next decade. The number of EPA Class VI wells used for geologic sequestration of carbon dioxide (i.e., carbon capture and underground storage) is also expected to increase. The goal of this forum is to review impacts on drilling engineers of environmental, social & governance (ESG); carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS); and geothermal on current and future drilling operations.

Abstracts are invited to present on the above topics at the DEC Q4 2023 Technology Forum. Deadline for abstract submissions is Monday, September 18th. Click the button below to submit an abstract.
