Warm Welcomes

The Drilling Innovative Solutions team had the opportunity to participate as a vendor in
the 2022
Society of Petroleum
/IADC Well Intervention Conference and

This annual conference allows oil and gas professionals from around the world to
connect, discuss the state of the industry, collaborate on future projects and offer students and young
professionals important insights for their future careers in oil and gas. After two years of digital meetings and
seminars, the team was excited to attend in person to meet potential clients, understand their issues, walk them
through DIS solutions and how they can equate to millions in savings.

State of the Industry

Transocean CEO Jeremy Thigpen and Patterson UTI CEO Andy
presented this year’s State of the Industry address. The address
touched on several key issues which affect all aspects of the industry such as: investment limitations, green
initiatives, expanding production and strain on the global supply chain. Though the industry could be in a better
state, it’s important as innovators to face the challenges with a solution-oriented approach and see opportunities
as opposed to roadblocks.  

From the DIS Booth 

From the DIS booth, the team showcased their revolutionary patented products which have
optimized downhole drilling operations worldwide saving valuable time and increasing revenue. In addition to
introducing products to potential clients, the DIS team was also able to present past clients with other DIS
products which have different applications. 

A Technical Sales Specialist from Baker Hughes said “It was great seeing the
DIS table at the IADC/SPE Conference in Galveston. I was already familiar with their
Gatekeeper CRC tool, but the potential
applications for the Sentinel and Sentinel LR seem endless!” 

Another major representative, this one from Shell, remarked on DIS as a whole. “DIS is
small and nimble, which makes it easy to work with y’all on new projects.”

DIS also shared information with the next generation of innovators at the 2022 Society
of Petroleum Engineers. Students gathered around as Jim Cunningham, our Engineering Manager, explained how the
Gatekeeper, Sentinel and Guardian products work to optimize downhole
drilling operations. The energy, excitement and curiosity of future engineers was a welcomed sight at the DIS

Until Next Time

The DIS team had a fantastic time doing what they do best—selling solutions. While the outlook
provided by the State of the Industry address offered a less than ideal picture of the future, the view from the DIS
booth was bright with new contacts, stronger partnerships and a generation of future problem-solvers ready to tackle
those challenges head-on.
