Group discussions at the 2013 IADC Dual Gradient Drilling (DGD) Workshop on 9 May in Houston focused on DGD implementation drivers and operational challenges. The event, hosted by the IADC DGD Subcommittee, cultivated open discussion by dividing the audience into groups and allowing them to talk with speakers in a smaller group setting. In this exclusive video, Kristin Falk, chairwoman of the subcommittee and vice president engineering, product development & training for AGR Enhanced Drilling; and Frederic Jacquemin, chairman of the subcommittee and DGD program director at Pacific Drilling, speak with Drilling Contractor associate editor Joanne Liou about the key takeaways from the workshop and some of the subcommittee’s current projects.
