Exclusive Forum for Smart Drilling and Completions Optimization for Shale Oil & Gas

Welcome to the SMART DRILLING USA 2022 Exhibition and Conference, where leading Exploration & Production companies will meet with drilling and completions experts in Houston, Texas, to explore the next generation of drilling and completions technologies for crude oil and natural gas development.

As petroleum-producing regions across North America ramp up production, operators across the region are looking for new ways to navigate the industry in a post-pandemic world. With drilling activity showing signs of recovery, cost-reduction and optimization remain critical factors for operators to stay profitable in a volatile market. 

With recent advancements in drilling technology, the average time to drill a well has fallen from 35 to less than 14 days, and total costs reduced from around $8 million to $5 million per well. In addition, as operators manage oilfields with varying geological conditions, they require the latest engineering know-how and well design techniques while focusing their efforts on drilling and completions optimization.

The SMART DRILLING USA 2022 event is the region’s leading exhibition and conference exclusively for operators and a large array of technology experts to develop and build on drilling and completions techniques and deliver the latest strategies and lessons learnt to drive efficiencies and keep costs low across all areas in the region.

The key focus for this year’s conference will be “Cost-Reduction & Optimization Strategies”. The objective will be to bring operators and service companies to collaborate and examine end-user case studies, innovative technologies, and completions know-how and address the current challenges in drilling and completions optimization for crude oil and natural gas development in the region.

Key topics on this year’s agenda include:

  • Making economic assessments for new oil and gas drilling projects
  • Integrating new drilling technologies into existing operations and processes
  • Reducing costs and achieving efficiencies with drilling automation and digitalization
  • Emerging opportunities and technical know-how in efficiently drilling longer laterals
  • Latest strategies and data analytics for the advancement of well completions
  • End-user operator case studies and how to develop a successful program

This exhibition and conference will provide a forum for all stakeholders from major E&Ps and service providers to leading drilling and completions experts to network and build cross-market relationships and discuss the latest developments from across the region.
