2023 DC Editorial Calendar & Media Kit

Dear DC Customer/Marketing Professional,

After several difficult years, the global drilling industry is primed for a strong rebound in 2023 as energy security takes center stage in many parts of the world. With drilling and completions activity surging ahead, competition will be fierce. If you’re looking to get your brand and your products in front of drilling and completions professionals, Drilling Contractor magazine is your best choice.

As in previous years, nearly half of DC’s readers are in corporate/executive management and/or rig management. The next two largest reader segments are professionals in drilling and completions operations (22%) and drilling and completions engineers (21%). Breaking down our readers by company type, 35% work for drilling contractors, and 33% work for producers.

Please click here to access DC’s 2023 media kit.

With travel restrictions continuing to ease up and many organizations, including IADC, resuming full in-person conference schedules, DC is on the road, bringing our readers news and videos about the latest technologies and market trends from around the globe. Hot topics around carbon reduction, fuel efficiency, geothermal drilling, and carbon capture, utilization and storage will be key parts of our 2023 coverage. Of course, drilling-focused content around topics like MPD, drill bits, drill pipe, drilling automation and digitalization, rig equipment and robotics, and well control will remain our bread and butter.

As the official magazine of the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC), DC delivers both print and digital marketing opportunities associated with the trusted IADC brand. IADC remains a name that is both recognized and esteemed by drilling and completions decision makers at multiple levels of the supply chain – not just drilling contractors but also national oil companies, major and independent oil companies, and government regulators worldwide.

DC also remains among few long-standing, highly respected industry publications that is still offered in print. But we have digital platforms too:

  • DrillingContractor.org and monthly eNews
  • DC Digital Reader
  • Drill Bits e-newsletter
  • Virtual Panel Discussions
  • IADC Lexicon

Thank you for your support, and I look forward to working with you in 2023.

Cordially,

Linda Hsieh
Editor and Publisher

Virtual Panel Discussions (VPDs)

GET UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL WITH PROSPECTIVE CLIENTS

DC virtual panel discussions are one of the greatest values available to drilling and completion marketers. These high-interest webcasts feature expert panelists discussing critical issues confronting the well-construction industry. Each of the pre-recorded VPDs will span 30 minutes to an hour. VPDs can be pre-recorded or presented as live events. They are then archived on DrillingContractor.org.

DC VPDs differ from typical webinars because they blend video, shot either in DC’s in-house studio or online via Zoom, with PowerPoint and additional videos or animations.

VPD Stats (2021-2022)

AVGERAGE VPD VIEWS: 672

Each VPD is promoted multiple times through combinations of DC, eNews and dedicated promotions, reaching more than 50,000 drilling and completion professionals. All promotions for the VPD, whether print or electronic, will feature the sponsor logo. In addition, the sponsor will be thanked at the start and finish of the VPD and the sponsor logo displayed on the video. Sponsors will receive names and e-mails of all VPD registrants.

Our virtual panel discussions provide significant value, as the table below shows.

All DC virtual panel discussions must be deemed as value adding to readers and viewers. Excessive commerciality discourages viewers and diminishes credibility.

IADC Rig Reports

REACH THE DRILLING RIG WITH YOUR MESSAGE!

Have a message you want to take straight to the rig? Marketing your company’s products and services through IADC checklists and forms provides direct presence at the rig site and to rig-based operations personnel.

High-visibility advertising is available on the front and back covers and inside “flap” of these checklists and forms. “Flap” visibility is ensured by its function to separate pages so that notes will not bleed through to underlying pages. (See illustration on below.)

IADC will place your company’s advertisement in a press run for any of the indispensable rig forms and checklists listed on these two pages.

(Rates below are net USD)

IADC DAILY DRILLING REPORT: The IADC Daily Drilling Report is the primary data-collection form for the global drilling industry. Also called the “tour sheet,” the DDR captures information related to the rig crew for payroll, as well as equipment, wellbore, bit and BHA.

Up to two ad spots are available on the front flap. (See diagram.)

IADC DRILLING RIG SAFETY INSPECTION CHECKLIST: This definitive checklist for rig safety inspection is indispensable at the rig site as a comprehensive guide to key hazards. Printed on carbonless paper to provide multiple records.

Adverts available on the back cover, and on both the front and reverse flap. The flap stands out due to its function in separating pages to avoid overwriting future pages.
