Below are a few examples of how contractors can take full advantage of a CAODC membership.
Offshore Executive Committee
CAODC Offshore Members have a seat on the Offshore Executive Committee.
Our operational committees are the lifeblood of the Association. These committees are comprised of hardworking volunteers from our member companies who help us share and assess valuable information that informs the work we do, and help us move forward as a competitive and healthy industry.
CAODC helps members effectively work with governments by providing one point of contact. Important technical and industry information is gathered from committee experts and then communicated through the Association to decision makers so they may make informed decisions on policy that impacts member companies. Understanding member perspectives helps ensure regulatory bodies are not imposing unfair, costly, or technically inaccurate processes or policies.
CAODC is a public advocate for the Canadian drilling and well servicing industry. Currently, the Oil Respect campaign is the Association's advocacy focus. Since February 2016, Oil Respect has been standing up for the Canadian oil and gas industry from coast to coast to coast. Speaking with provincial and federal governments and regular Canadians, Oil Respect addresses the misinformation and half-truths about the industry, giving oil workers and their families a voice, and letting our country know about the value our oil and gas industry brings to Canada.
CAODC publishes a monthly e-newsletter, as well as a quarterly magazine called "The Hitch." Members have access to advertising and sponsorship opportunities, and can stay up to date on industry news and technology.
Typically awarded annually each Spring, the CAODC Safety Awards provide an opportunity for individual rig hands to be recognized by their peers for their safety achievements.
