IADC is dedicated to enhancing the interests of the global well-construction industry. IADC's contract-drilling members own most of the world's largest land and offshore drilling units and drill the vast majority of the wells that produce the planet's oil and gas.
Since 1940, the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) has exclusively represented the worldwide oil and gas drilling industry.
IADC’s vision is for the drilling industry to be recognized for its vital role in enabling the global economy and its high standards of safety, environmental stewardship and operational efficiency.
The Association’s primary areas of focus include:
Advocating for sensible regulation
Giving voice to our industry
Improving safety and environmental protection
Membership is open to any company involved in oil and gas exploration, drilling or production, well servicing, oilfield manufacturing, or other rig-site services.
