The IADC Supply Chain Committee has developed standard supplier metrics and a scorecard. The supplier metrics were evaluated on impact to the supply chain process and the measurability by both suppliers and drilling contractors. These metrics are considered to provide the highest impact to the procurement process and considers safety, quality, delivery and service metrics. The IADC supplier standard metrics are service safety performance; revenue impact due to poor quality; non-conformances; on-time delivery; percentage late (of current orders); aged overdue open PO lines; invoice accuracy; and price variance.
The standard metrics will be used to create a balanced scorecard that drillers can share with suppliers so they understand the driller’s priorities and expectations. The committee will be working closely with drillers and suppliers throughout 2018 to ensure a smooth implementation.
The IADC Caspian Chapter hosted a meeting in Baku, Azerbaijan, in February focused on women in the oil and gas industry. The panel included four women in prominent positions in the region.

IADC recently donated a kiosk loaded with interactive educational information about the upstream oil and gas industry to the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig Museum and Education Center in Galveston, Texas.
The kiosk content includes an interactive drilling rig, a 3D game and narrated videos, along with basic information about drilling equipment and operations, the importance of hydrocarbons in fueling the global economy, facts about industry safety and environmental stewardship and more. The material contained in the kiosk mirrors that contained online at IADC’s Drilling Matters website.
“The Ocean Star Museum is very important in educating the public about the benefits of our industry, and IADC is proud to support their mission,” remarked IADC President Jason McFarland. “IADC’s Drilling Matters project neatly dovetails with the work of the Ocean Star Museum and the Offshore Energy Center. We are confident that many museum visitors will enjoy and benefit from the content on the new kiosk.”
The Ocean Star Museum is supported by the Offshore Energy Center (OEC). In addition to operating the rig museum, the OEC furthers awareness of the upstream industry through educational programs and college intern events.
“This will be a welcome addition to the museum content, particularly for those visitors that want more information about hydraulic fracturing” said OEC Executive Director Sandra Mourton. “The videos contain wonderful animation illustrating the hydraulic fracturing process, and we are delighted to have it as an onsite resource.”
The IADC Houston Chapter will host its second annual Christmas gala on 1 December 2018 in Houston. The event will feature music, photo booth, a caricature artist and a visit from Old St. Nick.
