:: Event Honors Legends in Drilling Industry

Bill Rehm

PETEX Advisory Board Member Bill Rehm was among five recipients of this year’s JPT Legends in Drilling award presented by the Journal of Petroleum Technology at the annual conference of the Society of Petroleum Engineers in September.

Rehm, an independent drilling consultant and author of PETEX drilling publications, focuses on issues surrounding well pressure and improving safety in drilling well control. He began his career at Dresser Industries developing well control and pressure measurement from electric logs. He wrote the first manual on well control accepted by the U.S. Minerals Management Service, and throughout his career, contributed to some of the most significant technological advancements in recent history including the development of directional drilling, coiled tubing, underbalanced drilling, and high-pressure drilling operations.

Also honored was Dr. Martin E. Chenevert, senior lecturer of Petroleum Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin (UT-Austin). Chenevert has earned international recognition for his work in wellbore stability and drilling fluids. After beginning his career with Humble Oil, he launched and ran his own company between 1977 and 1984 and remains on faculty at UT-Austin.

PETEX congratulates both recipients and is honored to have them participate in our shared mission of delivering quality education to oil and gas industry personnel, present and future.
