CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- The Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors (CAODC) this week celebrates 65 years serving Canada's drilling and service rig industry.
The Association's longevity distinguishes it as one of Canada's oldest upstream petroleum associations.
In 1949, the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin was a barely-explored resource, but a drilling industry was gaining a foothold on the Canadian prairie. Ten drilling contractors in that young industry saw an opportunity to ensure that as the Canadian oil and gas industry grew, it would also improve. They conceived of a meeting place where rig contractors set aside competitive differences to cooperate on common issues.
The resulting CAODC became a ready means of contact for government bodies and industry stakeholders and a place where rig contractors could create shared safety and training resources.
CAODC President, Mark Scholz, says, "An anniversary year is a good time to review accomplishments and milestones. When you're part of a community that's been around for 65 years, it makes one appreciate those organizations with a mandate to preserve these stories."
This month, CAODC updated its holdings at the Glenbow Archives in downtown Calgary. Items going to the archives include the original training videos from the 1980s when CAODC launched a Blowout Prevention Training standard for drillers, and photos of CAODC Safety Award winners from the 1960s and 1970s. CAODC is also forwarding 11 years' worth of its membership magazine, The OilDriller, and a series of annual reports.
Says Scholz, "CAODC's goal is to support operational excellence within our membership. We're grateful to the Glenbow for preserving this powerful story about Canada's rig industry."
65 years after inception, CAODC is the voice of 100% of Canada's drilling fleet and more than 98% of Canada's service rig fleet. It serves a membership of 44 drilling contractors (including 2 offshore contractors), 83 service rig contractors and 210 associate members.
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
