Offshore: OTC ‘03 Set for Houston — May 5-8

Wednesday, April 02, 2003

For the 35th year, the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) brings together attendees from around the world to "Envision, Enable and Enact." The event takes place 5-8 May at Reliant Center in Reliant Park, Houston. OTC .03: Envision. Enable. Enact. exemplifies the development of new technologies and innovations over the past 35 years of OTC.

"I have attended OTC for the past 30 years," said Robert Snyder, Executive Engineering Editor for World Oil magazine. "The technical conferences and exhibits have always documented the industry's progress from its shallow water beginning to its major international offshore presence. Most recently, it has become the primary forum for sharing problems and solutions for deep water, the most challenging arena yet."

OTC .03 promises to deliver four days of the latest technologies in the global offshore industry. The more than 375,000 net square feet of exhibit space will tout state-of-the-art technology available to the industry. Running concurrently with the exhibition are technical sessions that detail new practices accessible to engineers and other practitioners in the offshore field.

Attendees can expect more than 49 technical sessions that include 340-plus technical papers. Other presentations include eight Topical Luncheons and two General Sessions, "West Africa Oil and Gas: Defining the Future" and "Sustainable Development," featuring some of the most notable names in the industry. Three Industry Breakfasts are scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

On Tuesday, attendees will gather for the annual OTC Awards Luncheon. Walter van de Vijver, Group Manager and Director of the Royal Dutch/Shell Group of Companies and CEO of Shell Exploration and Production, delivers the Keynote Address at the luncheon recognizing outstanding work and service in the industry. Founded in 1969, the Offshore Technology Conference is the world's foremost event for the development of offshore resources in the fields of drilling, exploration, production and environmental protection. OTC is held annually in May at Reliant Center at Reliant Park in Houston. For more information, visit the OTC Web site at www.OTCnet.org.
