RDCR Well Engineering Forum 2020

The 7th RDCR Well Engineering Forum ran on the 11th of April 2019, at the 5* Kempinski Baltschug Hotel, in central Moscow. The forum included oil and gas conference case study examples with roundtable panels and open discussion sessions, including exhibition booths, covering Russia's upstream industry.

2019 saw a record number of delegates attend the event with over 450 representatives from the region's oil and gas operators companies, drilling contractors, service companies and equipment vendors. This represented a 27% yoy increase in delegates. Click here to see a full list of participants.

The RDCR covers well engineering technologies from drilling to production including rigs and rig equipment, to drill pipe and drilling fluids and the equipment and services to drill, complete, stimulate, enhance oil production and workover the wells.

The RDCR has grown over the last 7 years to include all the technologies to developed Russia's oil patch.  With Russia looking to replace declining production, drilling activity is high with significant growth in directional and horizontal wells.  Operators are seeking ways of share and dicussing how to improving their operational performance and efficiencies, increasing production through acid and fracturing stimulation whilst also eliminating waste and NPT. These topics and more were covered on April the 11th.

The event is the "must attend" event for senior corporate and technical managers from the major operators, service companies, drilling contractors and equipment vendors. There is no other event in Russia attracting over 450 key operational field heads. 

Rosneft, Gazprom Neft, Gazprom, LUKOIL, Tatneft, RussNeft, Slavneft, Novatek and Sakhalin Energy regularly attend the event with senior delegations. The event also attracts the major regional operating companies and BU’s like SDP, RN-Uvatneftegas, RN-Purneftegas, Varyeganneftegaz, Gazprom Neft Shelf, Gazpromneft-Muravlenko, Gazpromneft-Yamal, LUKOIL Nizhnevolzhskneft, LUKOIL West Siberia plus many more.
