Mission

The Drilling Engineering Association (DEA) was formed to advance the technology related to drilling wells by providing a forum for:

  • Presenting proposals for industry drilling-related projects sponsored by members of the Association for the benefit of both members and non-members.
  • Exploring the different levels of interest from members in potential drilling related problems to aid in developing future industry sponsored projects.
  • Acting as a liaison for DEA members with universities and other research groups.
