He thanked everyone involved for their hard work in organizing the conference: the program and advisory committees, exhibitors, the technical paper authors and presenters, the delegates in attendance, and the SPE and IADC staff.

NOV’s Bob Bloom, chairman of the 2010 Drilling Conference, took the baton from Mr Simpson and thanked him for doing “a tremendous job” in making the 2009 event a success. He then invited everyone to mark their calendars for next year’s Drilling Conference, to be held 2-4 February at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, La.

There will be 80-100 companies on exhibit, and a call for abstracts will be going in the near future. “We encourage you to submit an abstract yourself and to encourage your colleagues, old and young, to submit their ideas too,” Mr Bloom said. “I hope to see you all there.”
