Over 58% of wells drilled in unconventional formations in the US are now done using multi-well pad drilling, with operators in the Bakken, Eagle Ford, Permian, Marcellus, Niobrara, Fayetteville, Haynesville, and Woodford all now utilizing it to drive down the time and cost of their operations.

Operators using multi-well pad drilling have seen cost reductions ranging 15-30% per well and dramatic cuts in the amount of drilling days. It is now vital for any operator working in an unconventional play, who wishes to stay cost-competitive, that they understand how they can apply the latest advances in multi-well pad drilling to maximize the profitability of their operations.

The inaugural Multi-Well Pad Drilling Congress 2014 is the first forum specifically focused on how E&Ps working in unconventional plays can optimize multi-well pad drilling strategies, techniques and technologies to reduce the time and cost of their operations.


DAY 1: Determining The Optimal Well Spacing, Wells Per Pad, Pad Size, Rig Selection & Anti-Collision Strategies For Using Multi-Well Pad Drilling To Maximally Reduce The Cost & Time Of Operations

DAY 2: Using Simultaneous Operations & Batch Drilling To Minimize The Cost And Time Of Multi-Well Pad Drilling

Missed The Event?


With operators achieving cost reductions of between 15-30% by using multi-well pad drilling, it is vital that...

...any drilling professional working in an unconventional play understand how the latest advances in pad drilling can be applied to drive down the time and costs of their operations.

To help with this, the inaugural Multi-Well Pad Drilling Congress 2014 will provide the first operator-led forum dedicated to strategies for optimizing multi-well pad drilling. Featuring 20+ brand new case studies from leading E&Ps, presentations will focus on:

COST-BENEFIT ANALYSIS: Quantifying the cost and time savings that can be made by using multi-well pad drilling in unconventional plays to determine whether it delivers sufficient return on investment

WELL SPACING AND WELLS PER PAD: Examining the optimal well spacing and number of wells per pad for optimizing cost and time efficiencies in multi-well pad drilling

PAD SIZE: Determining the optimal pad size for minimizing the cost of multi-well pad drilling

RIG SELECTION: Evaluating the capabilities of different rigs to determine which offer the optimal solution for multi-well pad drilling at minimum cost

SIMULTANEOUS OPERATIONS: Determining how simultaneous drilling and fracturing of wells on the same pad can be used to reduce the cost and time of multi-well pad drilling

ANTI-COLLISION STRATEGIES: Benchmarking strategies for analyzing and mitigating the risk of wells colliding during pad drilling operations

BATCH DRILLING: Explaining how batch drilling can be used to deliver cost and time savings during multi-well pad drilling
