Why are exploration wells so expensive and how to cut costs…?
by Mike Dyson from Navigant

"All in all, good topics, good presentation and lots of interest. The opportunity to meet other professionals and discuss the items presented in the casual atmosphere usually results in follow-up discussions. Keep it up."
