The Premier Forum for Drilling and Completions Optimization across North Dakota

Welcome to the Bakken Drilling & Completions 2021 Exhibition and Conference where leading Exploration & Production companies will meet with drilling and completions experts in Bismarck, North Dakota to explore the next generation of drilling and completions technologies, techniques, and engineering know-how for crude oil and natural gas exploration and development.

As one of the largest petroleum-producing regions in North America, operators across the Bakken are looking for new ways to navigate through the industry in a post-pandemic world, and with drilling activity now showing signs of recovery, cost-reduction for drilling and completions is the key factor for operators to remain profitable in a low oil price market.

The Bakken shale with its highly productive source-reservoir produces over 1 million barrels of oil per day over 15,000 active wells. As the majority of shale oil and gas wells across the region have abnormal pore pressures resulting in frequent drilling incidents, operators are calling for new approaches to drilling and completions optimization. With recent advancements in completions know-how, greater savings have been achieved as a result of better well-design resulting in total costs reducing from around $8 million to $5 million per well. Today’s drilling and completions experts offer new hope for operators looking to achieve greater gains in efficiencies and to reach reservoirs in the most cost-effective and fastest way.

The Bakken Drilling & Completions 2021 event is the region’s leading exhibition and conference exclusively for operators and a large array of technology experts, to develop and build on drilling and completions techniques, and to deliver the latest strategies and lessons-learned to drive efficiencies across all areas in the region.

The key focus for this year’s conference will be “Cost-Reduction & Optimization Strategies” for the region and the objective will be to bring operators and service companies to collaborate and examine end-user case studies, innovative technologies and completions know-how, and to address the current challenges in drilling and completions optimization for crude oil and natural gas development.

Key topics on this year’s agenda include:

  • Making economic assessments for new oil and gas drilling projects
  • Evaluating strategies across completions stages for completions optimization
  • Reducing costs and achieving efficiencies with drilling automation and digitalization
  • Engineering and technical know-how with using the right drilling fluids chemistry
  • Latest strategies and data analytics for the advancement of well completions
  • End-user operator case studies and how to develop a successful program

This exhibition and conference will provide a forum for all stakeholders from major E&Ps and service providers, to leading drilling and completions experts, to network and build cross-market relationships and to discuss the latest developments from across the region.
