As part of its continuing effort to promote HSE commitment and advances in drilling technology, IADC is forming the European Operations Forum (EOF). The EOF will build on the achievements of the European Working Group and develop a stronger IADC regional body focusing on policies that effectively meet drilling contractors’ 21st-century needs.

The EOF will provide overview and guidance for IADC offshore and onshore activities in the region. Coordinated with the various IADC operations departments and government affairs office, it will be the focal point for dialogue with regulatory agencies across Europe while also being responsible for the execution of activities and projects for drilling contractors operating in the region.

The Forum Steering Committee is made up of Joep Beyer, KCA DEUTAG; Jørn Madsen, Maersk Contractors; Eelke Strikwerda, Noble Drilling; Sveinung Lofthus, Seadrill; and Paul King, Transocean.

The inaugural meeting of the EOF will be held on 8 September 2008 at the Dylan Hotel in Amsterdam.
