Thank you for your post today and congrats for running this initiative. It is highly appreciated.
I’m 60, leading a team of 8 drilling engineers 27 to 35 years old for clients in Europe Africa MENA.
We deliver studies for high end market wells DW, HPHT, Foothills, ERD, with scopes covering Casing Wear, Csg Stand-Off, Bit-BHA Design, TnDnB, Fatigue, Drilling Hydraulics, Hole Cleaning, etc, using our proprietary solutions.
I’m encouraging my team to subscribe to rp-squared SPREAD forum as well as to SPE Drilling, Completion, and Data Sciences Digests forums.
I’ve been doing this for the past 5 years, reminding them during yearly appraisals.
Most of them highly appreciate SPREAD, asking me questions about their readings weekly (I work in an open space with them – but for the past 3 months mostly from home due to C-19) though their contribution is weak, they may feel shy about their experience knowing it takes years in Drilling & Completion to build up in competencies as D&C domains are so numerous.
Keep faith Dave and warm thanks to your society contributions
Note from moderator:
Thanks for the kind words.
We do encourage less experienced members to ask questions too, as long as they have prepared their question (or answer) and are asking questions that could not be answered by Google (!).
I have learnt a lot from the answers to questions that I thought I already knew the answer to.
