A well construction hackathon was held on Tuesday 13 December 2016 at the Oil and Gas Technology Centre in Aberdeen.  Jointly driven by the Technology Leadership Board Workgroup, Industry Technology Facilitator (ITF), Oil and Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) and the OGA, the focus of the hackathon was to highlight challenges associated with well construction and to use the day as a platform for cross-industry supply companies (including small developers) to work with industry to identify innovative solutions. 

The event was held to identify new adapt and develop technologies that can contribute to lowering well construction costs. A large number of novel ideas were generated for five key challenge areas during the event and will now be picked up by technology delivery organisations that will, in collaboration with industry, develop the ideas into technology programmes.
