We invite you to register for our 2nd Aberdeen 'doing more with drilling data' event on February 19, looking at ways to get more value out of the data which is generated at the drill bit and on the drill rig, so you can drill more successful exploration and development wells in a month of rig time.

This event is a meeting place for everyone working in Aberdeen with drilling and data - including data generated from the drillbit and drilling rig, managing and communicating real time data, and better managing rig scheduling and reporting.

Oil and Gas UK says that UK exploration is in a 'parlous' state due to low number of exploration wells being drilled - what can the drilling data sector do, to increase the success rate of exploration wells and reduce the cost - so investing in them is a more viable proposition?

This event is followed by a partner event, using data to improve well integrity.

Student / academic registrations are available for £5 (£6 with VAT) if you register with voucher code 'ACADEMIC'

Our first 'drilling and the digital oilfield' event was held in Aberdeen in May 2012 (see the agenda see the delegates list).
