Offshore Technology Conference: 50 Years of Oil and Gas Industry Tech Solutions

Today marks the beginning of the 2018 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) which brings energy professionals together to discuss the oil and gas industry’s latest trends and cutting-edge technology. Featuring over two thousand exhibitors from more than forty countries, OTC will host upward of seventy thousand attendees in Houston, the world’s energy capital, at the aptly named NRG Park. 2018 marks fifty years of OTC, which has grown into the largest global event for the oil and gas sector.

Last year’s conference found attendees exchanging opinions regarding the prime regions for offshore drilling, anticipation for industry growth and trajectory as well as how technology will change the way companies strategize offshore exploration and production. This year, keeping on theme with the fifty year milestone, OTC promises to delve into the innovations we can expect over the next five decades.

Attendees can look forward to key trends at this year’s conference focusing on the technology solutions supporting the oil and gas industry. Energy professionals know from firsthand experience that tech solutions offering cost reduction and time optimization are an ongoing need. This year, expect speed of deployment of these technologies to be a top consideration. Solutions that enable reduced development timelines and tech that is project-ready will be a focus as expedited and nimble implementations become an imperative.

Additional issues OTC promises to address include the integration of new technology into established processes. Digital transformation brings advanced software and hardware solutions to the offshore energy sector and will enable the industry to meet rising global demand, while reducing carbon emissions. These advancements are not only proof-of-concept, attendees will also hear from industry-leading companies developing world-class projects and hear key learnings from these landmark initiatives.
