Santa Fe for a Drilling Forum

One of the best things SPE does. Santa Fe and a trip to Denver.


View July 2014 SPE Drilling Forum on fracmeister's travel map.

The SPE Forums bring experts together to talk about the state of the art and future problems in certain technical areas. This forum addressed the topic "Well Construction Efficiency: NPT, Reliability, and Process Improvement"

Santa Fe, NM

The forum was five days of very technical information and discussions that are "off the record." This lead to very engaging discussions which I very much enjoyed. My wife came out at the end of the Forum and we spent the weekend there. The town is beautiful and I certainly enjoyed the great opera house and their creative interpretation of Carmen.

The food is awesome. Lots of great dishes with green chilis.

Santa Fe is a very colorful town with lots to do. We also saw some of the great area attractions.

And of course the opera. We went with some of our friends attending the forum.
