Sponsorship: We are offering a new approach in sponsorship funding covering some of the ISCWSA meeting costs.  We have split the sponsorship options into four parts, the first option for the main meeting lunch, the second option for the main meeting coffee, the third option for the lunches for the workshop meetings and the fourth option a networking event. For the longevity of the organization I ask that you consider helping us as you see fit. Please contact Son Pham (Son.V.Pham@conocophillips.com) and Robert Wylie (Robert.Wylie@nov.com) if you or your organization can offer sponsorship for any of the options mentioned above.  We are indebted to the many past sponsors who have contributed to sustain our technical community work which has been running for almost 20 years and we look forward to continuing our good work for many years to come.

Email List CullingIf you no longer wish to receive notices regarding the ISCWSA, please contact Chad Hanak (chad@superiorqc.com) and tell him to remove you from the email distribution list.

Welcome to the Wellbore Positioning Technical Section

The Wellbore Positioning Technical Section has existed since 1995 as the Industry Steering Committee for Wellbore Surveying Accuracy (ISCWSA). The committee was established following the SPWLA Topical Conference on Measurement While Drilling, held in Kerrville, Texas, USA, in late 1995 and became an SPE Technical Section in 2004.

Mission

  • To produce and maintain standards for the industry relating to wellbore survey accuracy.
  • To set standards for terminology and accuracy specifications.
  • To establish a standard framework for modeling and validation of tool performance.
  • To raise awareness and understanding of wellbore survey accuracy issues across the industry.

The Way We Work


The ISCWSA (Industry Steering Committee for Wellbore Surveying Accuracy) consists of an informally constituted group of companies and individuals and was established following the SPWLA Topical Conference on Measurement While Drilling, held in Kerville, Texas, in late 1995. It affiliated to the SPE in 2004 as the SPE Wellbore Positioning Technical Section.

The group pride themselves on the 'less than formal' nature of their meetings which generate extremely open and frank discussion around the well positioning issues currently facing our industry.

Meetings are usually held twice a year and generally alternate between the United States and Europe. Most of the work is done in sub-committees between the main meetings.
