Posted on 19 March 2009

The Reliability Subcommittee, led by vice chairman Robert Urbanowski, Precision Drilling Oilfield Service, is very near completion of a detailed survey on top-drive reliability. IADC will manage all data collected and ensure confidentiality. This information will be reported only in aggregate.

The Guidelines Subcommittee, whose vice chairman is Logan Puckett, Pride International, has developed a matrix describing properties of various pieces of equipment to assist in deciding on their use in specific situations. Click here to view the matrix.

Control Motions, with vice chairman Svein Ove Aanesland of NOV, is identifying critical movements that differ from manufacturer to manufacturer and that could impede safety.

Finally, Software Interface, led by vice chairman Zane Master, Caterpillar, is examining machine-machine communications issues.
