The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), which takes place May 6-9 in Houston, announced 15 technologies that will receive the 2013 Spotlight on New Technology Award recognizing innovative new products that provide significant impact for offshore exploration and production.

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.”

Winning technologies were selected based on the following five criteria:

    New: less than 2 years old
    Innovative: original, groundbreaking, and capable of revolutionizing the offshore E&P industry
    Proven: through full-scale application or successful prototype testing
    Broad Interest: broad appeal for the industry
    Significant Impact: provides significant benefits beyond existing technologies

“The innovation shown by this year’s Spotlight Award recipients demonstrates the type of ingenuity and forward thinking that is advancing the industry to new levels of safety, productivity, and efficiency,” said Steve Balint, 2013 OTC chairperson. “I congratulate them on their achievements and thank them for making this a highlight of OTC.”
