 An estimated 300 guests helped the IADC South Central Asia (SCA) Chapter celebrate its 10th anniversary on 13-14 March at Aamby Valley’s Sahara Lake City, a resort community between the cities of Mumbai and Pune. The 22nd Technology Meet was held on the first day, followed by a golf tournament on the second.

A message from IADC president Dr Lee Hunt was delivered by IADC regional vice president – Middle East & Africa Ken Fischer to congratulate the chapter for a decade of stellar success. Dr Hunt emphasized the support of ONGC’s leaders, commenting, “Without their patronage and sponsorship, it would have been difficult to assemble the lineup of distinguished guests and speakers who have brought such high levels of learning and information to these assemblies.”

He also noted the chapter’s achievements in 2008 under chapter chairman UN Bose of ONGC, with continued involvement in practical issues confronting the promotion of health, safety and efficiency in operating environments in the region.

Mr Bose was in attendance, as was S. Sundareshan of India’s Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas. Both congratulated the chapter on its milestone and encouraged further cooperation in the future among IADC and drilling contractors, the Indian government, and oil and gas companies.

Mr Fischer also praised the chapter for its achievements and wished for continued success in the future. “Cooperatively linking our purposes truly does give IADC members great power. Together we can accomplish much more than any one of us could do alone.”
