The annual DrillWell seminar 2019

Sola Strand Hotel - September 24&25 - 2019

This seminar is arranged annually by the partners of the research centre DrillWell. This year’s presentations cover important contributions to improve digitalization technology in the drilling and well industry as well as improve quality and reduce cost in cementing and P&A operations.

The seminar is scheduled for two days:
Digitalization technologies for automated interpretation and execution in drilling operations as the topic of day 1, and Cementing and P&A as the topic of day 2.

The registration will be closed when the available seats have been taken.

Deadline: September 20
Seminar fee for non-DrillWell members: 900 NOK
