For more than 30 years, the IADC/SPE Drilling Conference and Exhibition has proven itself as the leading drilling event in the E&P world.  SPE: The Society of Petroleum Engineers in partnership with the IADC: The International Association of Drilling Contractors, hosts several events every year, alternating annually between Europe and North America and recently expanding programming to the Middle East and Asia Pacific.  These events accelerate progress in the oil and gas industry by connecting forward-looking technical presentations to open discussion forums.  The technical program enables oil and gas professionals to see through today’s challenges and work collaboratively toward solutions that create a stronger future for an increasingly energy-driven world.  RF System Lab has attended various conferences hosted by the SPE since 2011, and 2016 marked the fourth year in attendance.

Chad Parker, one of RF System Lab’s borescope experts, was happy to enjoy the warm weather in Houston, Texas to share the groundbreaking VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope with IADC/SPE event attendees. He had the opportunity to speak with existing customers about their experience with the easy to use, handheld, fully-articulating VJ-Advance video borescope and was excited to present new customers who stopped by the booth an opportunity to get a hands-on demo of the VJ-ADV in 2.8mm, 3.9mm, and 6.9mm diameters. The VJ-ADV offers remote visual inspection capabilities to petroleum, oil, and gas professionals.

The 2016 IADC/SPE Drilling Conference takes place March 1-3 in Fort Worth Texas.  This conference brings together exploration and production professionals and emphasizes advancements in worldwide drilling operations that address problematic challenges and deliver improved performance.

RF System Lab borescope expert Chad Parker is looking forward to attending this leading drilling event to showcase the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) articulating video borescope.  The VJ-ADV is easy to use with joy-stick controlled articulation and high-resolution, on-board image and video capture. Chad will be onsite in booth 424 to answer questions, provide information and hands-on live demonstrations with 2.8mm, 3.9mm, and 6.9mm diameter scopes.  The VJ Advance offers versatile, remote visual inspection capabilities to petroleum, and oil and gas professionals.

The IADC/SPE is comprised of two organizations.  The International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) is dedicated to enhancing the interests of oil and gas and geothermal drilling contractors. Members of the IADC own most of the world’s land and offshore drilling units and drill the vast majority of the wells that produce the planet’s oil and gas. The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is a not-for-profit organization whose members engage in energy resources development and production.

Conference Chairperson Bill Ambrose stated “The technical, keynote, and plenary sessions will each provide insights to navigate the current low commodity price environment of our business. The distinguished speakers in our plenary session will explore the theme of “Out with the Old, in with the New” to share ideas about how we will need to adapt and evolve our technologies and practices. Topics will include well efficiency, capital deployment, and new technologies to extract energy sources. Our keynote speakers will bring perspectives from within our industry, as well as from other industries, to address the critical issues we face today.” For more information about the IADC/SPE Drilling Conference, visit their website. RF System lab will be attending many tradeshows throughout the year with live demonstrations.

The Automotive Testing Expo is one of the tradeshows that RF System Lab sales consultants can’t wait to get to every year. The automotive industry is so vast and competitive that employees from every manufacturer are sure to attend. Searching for a way to eliminate recalls and gain that competitive edge, exhibitors are always eager to get their hands on the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope from RF System Lab.

Borescope experts Casey O’Tool and Chad Parker manned the RF System Lab booth at 2015 Auto Testing Expo. When asked about the show, both reps conveyed how it was a great chance to reconnect with current RF System Lab customers and to meet some of them in person for the first time.

It wasn’t all just handshakes and catching up. The RF System Lab booth was “extremely busy” for most of the show while Casey and Chad were able to introduce first-time exhibitors to the VJ-Advance video borescope. The picture above shows how glad RF System Lab was to be able to send not one, but two of our borescope experts to this “mega-show”.

If you missed us at Auto Texting Expo this year, we welcome you to learn more about the VJ-Advance video borescope and the industry-first free demo program from RF System Lab. Visit our website today to request your no-cost, no-obligation demo.

Chad Parker, Borescope Consultant, helped RF System Lab kick off the busy trade show season the last week of September at WEFTEC in Chicago, IL. From September 26th through the 30th, attendees got a chance to interact with companies and service providers at the annual water quality gathering.  RF System Lab got its feet wet in its inaugural appearance at the conference and exhibit.

Chad was there to offer free hands-on demos of the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope to WEFTEC attendees.  He brought along 2.8mm, 3.9mm, and 6.9mm diameter scopes in order to show the versatility that the VJ-ADV offers.
