Offshore Technology Conference Set May 5-8

American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

AAPG once again will have a strong presence at the annual Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), which will be held May 5-8 at the Reliant Center in Houston.

OTC, sponsored in part by AAPG, is regarded to be the world’s premiere event for the development of offshore resources in the areas of exploration, drilling, production and environmental protection.

OTC this year will be celebrating its 45th anniversary.

A large part of OTC’s appeal can be found in its enormous exhibits area, where more than 2,600 companies will be represented.

But just as important is OTC’s extensive technical program, which offers:

Topical breakfasts and luncheons featuring senior executives of operating, service and supply companies who will share their views on future industry directions, operational integrity and risk management.

Panel discussions led by experts and high-ranking government officials addressing issues related to public policy, energy development and health, safety and the environment.

Peer-selected technical presentations on new technologies and lessons from the field.

And as in past years, AAPG will provide content for much of the technical program, including these AAPG-sponsored events:

Monday (May 5)
  • 7:30-9 a.m. – Breakfast, featuring Silvia Peppoloni, on “Geoethics: A Way of Thinking and Practicing Geosciences.”
