IADC presented industry veterans Scott McReaken and Terry Loftis with Exemplary Service Awards at the 2016 IADC Annual General Meeting in Scottsdale, Ariz., on 3 November. Mr McReaken, CEO of Sevan Drilling, was recognized for his service as IADC Secretary/Treasurer since 2013 and as an IADC Executive Committee member. Mr Loftis, Director of Engineering at Transocean, was recognized for his work as chairman of the IADC Advanced Rig Technology (ART) Committee.
IADC service awards recognize individuals for their outstanding contributions to the association and their commitment to improving and advancing safety, training and technology throughout the industry.
“Terry and Scott are each truly dedicated to the mission of IADC, and I am proud to present this well-deserved award to them in recognition of their deep commitment to our association,” said Jason McFarland, IADC President. “It goes without saying that an association is only as strong as the members who support it, and I am thankful for our members who volunteer their time and expertise to support IADC.”
Mr McReaken noted his appreciation for the award and for the work of IADC. “This is a great industry and a great organization to be apart of,” he said. “Through the past four years, we’ve seen the IADC really adapt and transition, continuing to provide quality services to people, even despite the recent downturn.”
Mr Loftis commented: “IADC is a wonderful organization, and the Advanced Rig Technology is a great committee. I want to thank all of the men and women at IADC who have supported me. I also want to thank all of my subcommittee chairmen for their tireless efforts… They all have day jobs, yet they contribute and try to help out the drilling industry.”
