If one drilling contractor faces an issue with a piece of equipment, there’s a chance another drilling contractor is dealing with the same issue. Rather than approaching the OEM as individual companies, the IADC Maintenance Committee has united drilling contractors to partner with OEMs to discuss opportunities for equipment improvements. Frank Breland, Chairman of the IADC Maintenance Committee and Manager Planned Maintenance for Diamond Offshore Drilling, spoke with DC Associate Editor Joanne Liou about the result of a partnership with Caterpillar and a recently established partnership with National Oilwell Varco at the 2014 IADC Asset Integrity and Reliability Conference in Houston on 20 August.
