Further to this position, Gill’s expertise in the industry is further solidified by her appointment as Chairperson to the MWD/LWD Sub-Committee, as part of the collaborative efforts of the International Association of Drilling contractors (IADC) and International Association of Directional Drilling (IADD) to develop a standardised metric for performance measurement in the directional drilling sector.

“This complementary role offers an exciting opportunity for additional cross-industry collaboration,” Gill said regarding her chairperson appointment. “I look forward to working with other technology experts, the IADC and IADD on the research and creation of some truly formative directional drilling industry performance standards.”
