OTC to focus on accelerating the energy transition

Event News

The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC 2023) will be held from 1-3 May at NRG Park in Houston

The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) is the world’s foremost event for the development of offshore resources, showcasing leading-edge technology for offshore drilling, exploration, production, and environmental protection. 

OTC is a global event that connects offshore energy professionals to collaborate and discuss the challenges, solutions, and changing energy landscape of the offshore energy sector. It is sponsored by 13 industry organisations and societies who work cooperatively to develop the technical programme. Last year’s event attracted more than 24,000 energy professionals from 93 countries, with more than 1,000 companies from 39 countries showcasing their produces and services. The technical conference featured more than 300 technical presentations covering topics from wellbore to topsides and everything in between.

OTC’s large international participation provides excellent opportunities for global sharing of technology, expertise, products, and best practices. Across four days, industry thought leaders, investors, buyers, and entrepreneurs will meet to develop business partnerships and drive the conversations, collaborations and connections that support the future of offshore energy to achieve a lower-carbon industry. 

The conference supports all offshore energy resources that help power human progress and meet global energy demands. Whether the topic relates to offshore wind, renewables, carbon capture, or energy transition, OTC has a technical session where energy professionals are exchanging ideas, concepts, and opinions to further advance scientific and technical knowledge of offshore resources. 

Progressing towards a lower-carbon future

As the drive towards sustainability, emissions reduction and decarbonisation continues to gain ground, OTC is committed to supporting the offshore energy sector to make progress towards efficiency and a lower carbon future. 

At OTC 2023, the Energy Transition Pavilion will showcase providers of innovative and creative solutions being developed to decarbonise, drive sustainability and improve energy efficiency, providing a meeting place for energy transition dialogue. 

An energy transition panel will provide a detailed outlook on the opportunities and challenges involved in the path to clean energy. Moderated by Kenneth B Medlock III, PhD, senior director at the Center for Energy Studies, the panel will comprise Justin Ahn, sustainability program manager, Port Houston; Guillermo Sierra, vice president Eneryg Transition; Nabors and Kathryn Hite de Sousa, marketing director SLB. 

OTC offers a host of different features including the Distinguished Achievement Awards, Spotlight on New Technology Awards, a three-day conference on Arctic energy opportunities, the Energy4me Teachers STEM Workshop and a University R&D Showcase.
