Houston, Texas, USA (9 March 2016) – The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), which takes place 2–5 May in Houston, announces that 13 technologies will receive the 2016 Spotlight on New Technology Award. The awards will be presented at 1600 hours, 2 May, in the NRG Center Rotunda Lobby.
The Spotlight on New Technology Awards—a program for OTC exhibitors—showcases the latest and most advanced hardware and software technologies that are leading the industry into the future.
For a second consecutive year, OTC will support and recognize the innovative technologies being developed by small businesses with the Spotlight on Small Business Award. In addition to meeting the above criteria, a small business honoree must be independently-owned and operated or a not-for-profit concern and have no more than 300 employees for the 12 months preceding the application deadline.
“The 2016 Spotlight Award winners embody OTC’s mission to advance scientific and technical knowledge for the safe, environmentally friendly development of offshore oil and gas resources,” said Spotlight Award Committee Chair Mark Kalman. “Thanks to these recipients’ pioneering spirit, offshore E&P will continue to play a key role in supplying the world with energy in a sustainable manner.”
