The Spotlight on New Technology Awards, which are for OTC exhibitors, showcase the latest and most advanced hardware and software technologies that are leading the industry into the future. “Our Spotlight Award winners ask, ‘What if?’ and ‘Why not?,’” said Spotlight Award Committee Chair Helge Hove Haldorsen. “It is thanks to them that offshore E&P will continue to play a key role in supplying the world with affordable energy in a sustainable manner.”
