SPREAD is the acronym for Sharing Practices Rigorously, Easily Accelerates Delivery.
SPREAD is the global community of drilling, completion & subsea professionals. It gives you access to a wealth of knowledge that you may not otherwise have had.
All the discussions under the forum are organised under various categories known as discussion groups. Some of the groups are further divided into subgroups for a better classification.
Members can post their ideas/queries to be discussed in SPREAD. They have to choose the right Group before posting a discussion. A meaningful title and a small brief for the discussion are required. The discussions under a group are displayed in chronological (latest on top). You may see the discussion title, owner of discussion, name of last contributor to a discussion, last contributed date, number of responses received etc.
Members can contribute their knowledge to any discussions, treated as Responses. Responses can be opted to fall under one of the following categories.
You may see the category name on the top of a response, if present if selected anyone of the above at the time of posting a Response.
