2022 DC Editorial Calendar & Media Kit

 

Dear DC Customer/Marketing Professional,

With rig counts continuing to edge up in most markets around the world, the time is prime for getting your marketing message out, both to existing and potential customers, ahead of the competition. And there is no better value than DC if you’re marketing to drilling and completions professionals. Nearly half of DC’s subscribers are in corporate/executive management or rig management. The next two largest segments of our subscribers are drilling and completions operations (23%) and drilling and completions engineers (22%).

Please use the link in this email to access DC’s 2022 media kit. Keep the link handy throughout the year, as we’ll be updating it as the market evolves in 2022.

Over the past year, DC has amped up its coverage of low-carbon solutions for drilling rigs – still an emerging area where both operators and drilling contractors are hungry for new information to drive their investment decisions. We will continue providing in-depth coverage of ESG-related innovations in the coming year, along with coverage of core topics like drilling automation/digitalization, safety, and rig equipment/robotics.

As the official magazine of the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC), DC delivers marketing opportunities – both in print and online – associated with the trusted IADC brand. It’s a name both recognized and esteemed by drilling and completion 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 2022.

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.

All Time Stats

AVERAGE VPD REGISTRANTS: 240
AVGERAGE VPD VIEWS: 264

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.
