The purpose of this paper is to provide basic information concerning theCanadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors - by outlining its aims,objectives and accomplishments. It covers the historical background, membershipcomposition, organizational structure and programs of the Association.
History and Objectives of the Association
Through this meeting of the Petroleum Society, I am hopeful that a broaderknowledge of the purposes of the Canadian Association of Oilwell DrillingContractors will be provided and a deeper understanding of the contractdrilling and servicing industry will develop, improving the co-ordination andplanning of contractor-operator activities - the objective being a stronger andmore progressive Canadian petroleum industry.
With the discovery of Leduc in 1947, the exploration door was opened for amore active search for hydrocarbon reserves in Western Canada. Drillingcontractors were then faced with growth problems of a type that confront anyfledging industry - in relations with governments, operators and the public,and in the training and development of personnel - at the same time trying toadd a measure of stability to their own contracting organizations. Obviously,there was a need for the contractors to take collective action to resolve someof these difficulties, and the Canadian Association of Oilwell DrillingContractors was formed and registered as a trade association under theSocieties Act of the Province of Alberta in June, 1949. A further stimulant wasprovided by certain experienced operating companies who wished to see anefficient drilling industry established to perform a safe and reliableservice.
