8:35 AM

DEA Business:
· Review 4Q02 Meeting Agenda – Mike Utt

· Report Out on DEA/IADC Board Meeting – Mike Utt
Mike Utt explained that the DEA Advisory board had accepted the IADC’s offer to become an affiliated member of the IADC and then explained how that would effect DEA’s operations. The IADC will provide admin-support for much of DEA’s operations, which will include website maintenance and help with planning forums. The DEA will continue to operate as before with very little visible change. The IADC will also post DEA material on their website and will advertise DEA events in the “Drilling Contractor” magazine. Everyone seems to agree that this would be a mutually beneficial arrangement.

· Contractors Update of Active DEA Project’s – David Dowell
Projects were updated in the usual routine.

· Election of new Vice Chairman of DEA – Mike Utt
Mike Utt nominated Mr. Morris Keene from OXY as the new Vice Chairman and then nominations were solicited from the floor. Mr. Keene was elected without opposition. Mike Utt then asked for nominations for a board member to fill Mr. Keene’s spot on the advisory board. Mr. Mike Harris of Apache was nominated and elected.
