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.”
